Ed Skrein electrified the screen when he took on the role of Ajax in the first Deadpool movie. Skrien is now taking another role in another comic book movie.
It’s been announced that Ed Skrein will be starring alongside David Harbour, Milla Jovovich and Ian McShane in the reboot of the Hellboy franchise. Skrein will be playing the role of Major Ben Daimio. Daimio was a former Marine who joined the Beaureu for Paranormal Research and Defense as a consultant before becoming a member of the team. Besides being a skilled soldier and commander, Ben also has the ability to turn into a giant were-jaguar when stressed.
Whether or not this aspect of the character is shown on-screen remains to be seen. Ed Skrein is a familiar face on screen. Besides his turn as the villain Ajax in the smash hit film Deadpool, Skrein is also remembered for his role as Daaario on Game of Thrones. Skrein will next be seen in the big screen adaptation of the manga Alita: Battle Angel directed by Robert Rodriguez.
