The much anticipated sequel, Deadpool 2, featuring our favorite Merc with a Mouth is on its way and it’s got a release date as well!
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the sequel to the hit superhero film is set to release on June1, 2018. The production for the sequel is set to begin this year in June.
Ryan Reynolds is set to reprise the titular role (obviously) with Josh Brolin joining the cast as the time-traveling mutant, Cable and Zazie Beetz as the mutant Domino. John Wick co-director, David Leitch will helm the project.
In the comics, Cable is the son of Cyclops (Scott Summers) and Madelyn Pryor, who’s a clone of Jean Grey. The real name of Cable is Nathan Summers. The casting of Josh Brolin as the mutant is surely a surprise as he is already playing the character of Thanos in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and now with this, he is playing two characters from Marvel.
Fans of Deadpool, who were waiting for any news on the sequel, got a glimpse of a teaser trailer titled ‘No Good Deed’ which was released along side Logan. Although, the teaser is not part of the movie and is just a glimpse of the anti-hero’s exploits, it’s still awesome to watch!
The trailer ends with a message stating: “Deadpool coming ….. not soon enough” and now that we know the release date of the movie, it sure is a long wait!
Deadpool 2 hits the theatres on June 1, 2018 and stars Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, Josh Brolin as Cable and Zazie Beetz as Domino and will be directed by David Leitch.
