Production for the second installment of Disney’s Maleficent will start later this year with Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning returning to portray their original roles. Today it was announced that Ed Skrein, the English actor and rapper, will play a villain in the sequel. Playing the bad guy comes naturally to Ed, as his previous roles include the villain in the 2016 blockbuster, Deadpool.
In the first Maleficent, Sharlto Copley played the villain who stole Maleficent’s (Angelina Jolie) heart and then her fairy wings, turning her into the sorceress we are familiar with in the animated classic.
