Lewis Tan, who played Zhou Cheng in Netflix's Iron Fist, has confirmed his role as a member of X-Force as seen in recent trailers for the untitled Deadpool sequel - who we deduce to be Shatterstar. Check out this post on the actor's Instagram feed:

Looking at that still, all of the actors except one has been identified - meaning Tan is that one.

So, from left to right that's Domino (played by Zazie Beetz), as-yet unknown role (Bill Skarsgård), Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds), Shatterstar (Lewis Tan), and Bedlam (Terry Crews).

How do we know for sure that that's Shatterstar? Deadpool actor Stefan Kapicic (who plays Colossus) previously confirmed the role back in February to Inverse - just not who was playing him, at the time.

The Deadpool sequel is scheduled to open in theaters May 18.
