With Deadpool grossing an astonishing $783,112,979 worldwide against a budget of $58 million, it comes as no surprise that Fox were quick to greenlight the sequel. Deadpool 2 (tentative title) has now begun shooting in Vancouver, as Ryan Reynolds confirmed in the following humorous tweet.
Dropped by the X-Mansion. Big fucking surprise. No one's home. pic.twitter.com/svbUMEdKbb— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) June 17, 2017
You may recall that Hatley Castle, which is shown in the image, doubled as the X-Mansion in the previous X-Men movies, which means we should expect to see even more X-Men characters showing up.
In addition to Reynolds, Deadpool 2 will also star Josh Brolin as Cable, with Morena Baccarin, Brianna Hildebrand, T.J. Miller and Zazie Beetz rounding off the supporting cast. Directed by David Leitch, the film will hit screens on 1 June 2018.
