Deadpool 2 confirmed with Ryan Reynolds and Tim Miller reprising their roles
It is no surprise that 20th Century Fox chairman, Stacey Snider, has announced that Deadpool is coming back for another round in a sequel. Ryan Reynolds will be back as the bad-mouthed, but comedic superhero and along with him are writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick with Tim Miller returning to direct.
There is not a lot known about the sequel yet, but there is a lot of speculation as it was teased in the first movie’s credits that the fellow Superhero Cable would join Deadpool for a sequel.
“Oh! I can tell you one thing, and it’s a bit of a secret. The sequel? We’re gonna have Cable. Amazing character, bionic arm, time travel. We have no idea who we’re going to cast yet, but it could be anyone. Just need a big guy with a flat top. Mel Gibson, Dolph Lundgren, Kiera Knightly? She’s got range, who knows? Big secret, shhhh. Oh, and don’t leave your garbage all lying around. It’s a total dick move.”
Even though it has not been officially confirmed, the writers played around with the idea of introducing Cable.
Reese told Hitflix, “there’s a lot of fun in that he’s very serious and he does take on more serious weighty issues than Deadpool’s used to taking on, so I think there’s a juxtaposition there that can be fun,” Reese told Hitflix… We had a lot of fun with Colossus in the first movie, just by virtue of him being a foil to Deadpool, being a goody-two-shoes and a straight shooter and Deadpool being irreverent. And I think Cable offers us the opportunity to provide another really cool, different foil for Deadpool.”
Wernick also gives some insight saying, ““This was a movie about a broken character, a broken guy who’s just trying to make his way in the world, and I think we’re gonna continue that moving forward.”
The two obviously have a good hold of the character which gives fans some encouragement as to how well done the sequel will be. The first movie is one of the highest grossing R-rated movies of all time, having grossed 350 million in North America and $396.3 million in other territories. With such a good outcome, we can only imagine how well the sequel will be received.
There is also no news of the release date, but 20th Century Fox had previously announced that the dates of October 6, 2017 and January 12, 2018 are taken for untitled Marvel films.
