Deadpool, which opened in theaters this February was released on DVD and Blu-Ray May 10th after earning $762.4 million against a lowly $58 million production budget. Deadpool was both a commercial and critical success and has inadvertently inspired movie studios to release more R-rated comic book movies, despite ethe fact that Deadpool's success comes from the dedication of the cast and crew and their love for the source material. Although both Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Captain America: Civil War may have earned more in their box office takings, less their production budgets Deadpool is still the most profitable comic book movie of 2016.
The post-credits sequence for Deadpool taunted fans with a re-enactment of the same scene from 1986 cult classic Ferris Bueller's Day Off, in which Ryan Reynolds in costume as Deadpool teased that Cable would appear in the movies sequel. Unsurprisingly this has created a wave of speculation of who could play the role of Deadpool's long-suffering partner, with actors such Stephen Lang, Dolph Lundgren and now even Hellboy himself Ron Perlman has rallied for the much-coveted role...
Deadpool 2 is expected to open in theaters in 2017 with screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, Director Tim Miller and star Ryan Reynolds all returning. Despite being linked to the X-Men movie franchise through the characters Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead, producer Simon Kinberg and director Miller are hopeful for a crossover with Marvel Studios and Sony Entertainments latest incarnation of everybody's favorite teenage wall-crawler Spider-Man; a move which could bring all of Marvels movie assets together into the much coveted MCU.
