Meet Peter. He's just your average middle-aged man who enjoys sports, grilling and beekeeping. Oh, and he's also the newest member of the Merc With a Mouth's "super duper fucking group" from Deadpool 2.
Shortly following his debut in the latest Deadpool 2 trailer, fans discovered a verified account for the character on Twitter. Though his social media activity doesn't really reveal any clues about his role on the team, it does offer some insight into his personality.
Peter's Twitter account is a month in the making, with his first recorded Tweet appearing on March 24:
Wife's always telling me to "get out of my comfort zone!" So, I figure making a twitter and doing this #BeDeadpools2nd thing is a great way.— Peter W. (@PeterW_1974) March 24, 2018
From there, the Twitter account runs through a gamut of "Peter's" interests, from fishing to beekeeping to sports and anti-drug advocacy:
The account reveals Peter to be a loving husband and a straight-laced -- but super naive -- man:
Peter is, of course, following several Deadpool-related accounts: Ryan Reynolds, Deadpool Movie, Karan Soni, David Leitch, Rhett Reese and Hugh Jackman. He also follows a number of beekeeping and fishing accounts, L.L. Bean, Barack Obama, Tim Tebow, Rush, Celine Dion and more.
The character debuted at the end of the final Deadpool 2 trailer, which dropped on April 19. He appeared as the very last person to audition for Deadpool's team. "I just saw the ad," he confessed during his interview, only for Wade to give him the job on the spot. The final shot of the trailer finds him in free fall after jumping out of a plane.
Directed by David Leitch, Deadpool 2 stars Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Stefan Kapičić as the voice of Colossus, and Karan Soni as Dopinder, with newcomers Zazie Beetz as Domino, Josh Brolin as Cable, Julian Dennison in an unknown role, and Jack Kesy as a villain widely thought to be Black Tom Cassidy. The film hits theaters on May 18.
