We recently just posted an article confirming that Negasonic Teenage Warhead and Colossus would be returning for Deadpool 2. Well, It looks like another familiar face will be popping up in the sequel!
During a Facebook Live Q&A with Nerdist, Deadpool screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick were asked about the status of Deadpool 2. Unfortunately, there was no casting news or any new major details, but they did mention that the script isn’t fully written yet.
However, they mentioned that the character Dopinder (Karan Soni), Deadpool’s trusty taxi driver would return. Wernick announced the character’s return (around the 13:00 mark):
I would say that the relationship between Dopinder and Deadpool was the most fun for me. I love that relationship and I love that character. And he’ll be in the sequel.
The last time we saw Dopinder, he was in a bit of a jam when he locked his cousin Bandhu in the back of his trunk. Maybe he got fired from his taxi job and now he’s working for Uber. I’m not sure what his role will be, but I can’t wait to see him and Deadpool interact in the sequel. I know its going to be lit.
What do you guys think Dopiner’s role will be in the sequel?Did he end up with his boo, Gita? Let us know and remember to stay lit.
Deadpool 2 opens in theaters on January 12th, 2018.
