'Deadpool' Bad Guy Ed Skrein Insists He's Just Misunderstood

Evil is in the eye of the beholder.

It's hard out there for a bad guy, as Ed Skrein, villain in the upcoming "Deadpool," well knows.

In an interview with MTV News at San Diego Comic-Con, Skrein stressed that his character, Ajax, doesn't see himself as a bad dude. He's more...misunderstood.

"The rest of the world sees him as a bad guy," he said.

The creepiest thing about Ajax, however, is that it's not anger that drives him. it's a whole lot of...nothing.

"His superpowers are that he feels nothing. He feels no pain," Skrein said. "I suppose he's a sociopath in the truest sense."

Audiences can look forward to seeing Skrein torment Ryan Reynolds' foul-mouthed superhero Deadpool when the film is released February 12, 2016.
