Deadpool 2 directed by David Leitch (Atomic Blonde, John Wick), produced by Marvel Entertainment, will make its debut in theaters nationwide on May 18, 2018. Blackfilm.com received an exclusive photo of actor Terry Crews who plays Bedlam, in the highly anticipated Fox studios sequel.
Also known as Jesse Aaronson, Bedlam can create and project a bio-EM field. This mutant power has the effect of temporarily disabling any similarly powered technology in proximity. He can also utilize his power to scan the environment for other pre-existing energy fields. In the comics, Domino (played by Zazie Beetz) and Jesse have a pretty close relationship and she helps him track down information on the whereabouts of his family. Sadly Jesse was orphaned at the age of 5 after his parents were killed in a crash and were raised by foster parents.
Bedlam is also skilled in covert ops and intelligence gathering such as computer hacking.
