Deadpool often abuses Weasel, but Weasel has displayed somewhat of a opportunistic streak against his best friend on occasions.

Ed Skrein is listed as one of the main cast, but the character he is playing is unknown. Lastly, Style Dayne will be playing Jeremy, a character who steals all of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s human resource files (SHIELD CROSSOVER?!).
