‘Deadpool 2’ Star Reportedly Has Secret Role in ‘Detective Pikachu’Comicbook.com #Detective_PikachuJanuary 13, 2019
Delaney, best known to comic fans for playing the non-powered Peter in last year’s Deadpool 2 , is on the official cast list for Detective Pikachu even though Legendary Pictures has announced most of the cast already.
Assuming that the report is correct and Delaney is involved in the film, the question becomes whether he’s playing a human or a Pokemon .
Delaney is best known for comedic roles, so our bet is that he voices a Pokemon who unexpectedly talks.
Mime or possibly Meowth (as there’s a talking Meowth in the anime series.)

Detective Pikachu , the first major, live-action motion picture from the incredibly popular video game franchise, is scheduled to release on May 10, 2019.
“The story begins when ace detective Harry Goodman goes mysteriously missing, prompting his 21-year-old son Tim to find out what happened.
Aiding in the investigation is Harry’s former Pokémon partner, Detective Pikachu : a hilariously wise-cracking, adorable super-sleuth who is a puzzlement even to himself.
Finding that they are uniquely equipped to communicate with one another, Tim and Pikachu join forces on a thrilling adventure to unravel the tangled mystery.
Chasing clues together through the neon-lit streets of Ryme City—a sprawling, modern metropolis where humans and Pokémon live side by side in a hyper-realistic live-action world—they encounter a diverse cast of Pokémon characters and uncover a shocking plot that could destroy this peaceful co-existence and threaten the whole Pokémon universe.”
