Expertly portrayed by Silicon Valley star T.J. Miller, Weasel was an unquestionable scene-stealer in Deadpool. During a recent interview with CinemaBlend’s Eric Eisenberg, Miller admitted that he already has an idea for a Weasel spin-off — one that fans of the Deadpool comics may recognize.
“I’m excited about the prospect of a Weasel spin-off, because he makes this super suit, that’s not great and it’s a superhero in Las Vegas [who] protects casinos,” Miller told CinemaBlend. “I mean, it just, everything about it is perfect for me… What if the Iron Man suit was sort of budget, like he can’t fly, but he can hover three or four feet.”
First, J.A.R.V.I.S. would never allow Tony Stark to wear a budget Iron Man suit. Come on, T.J.! Second, Miller is alluding to the time in the Deadpool comics in which Weasel becomes a Las Vegas superhero known as “The House.”
Let’s hope this potential sequel doesn’t come up snake eyes, because T.J. Miller as a bumbling Sin City superhero is the kind of spin-off we’d definitely double down on.
Deadpool 2 is currently scheduled for a 2017 release date.
