Deadpool 2 will be directed by David Leitch (John Wick) and written by Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese. It has a provisional release date of early 2018. Shooting is set to begin in June. Watch a teaser trailer below.


Stranger Things actor David Harbour was recently touted for the role of Cable in the upcoming sequel, as were Brad PittPierce Brosnan, Michael Shannon and Russell Crowe. But reports earlier this month confirmed that Brolin “emerged as a surprise contender” for the “hotly contested role”.

NME’s review of the first film called it a “stylishly salty antidote to bloated recent superhero movies,” and it became one of the year’s biggest hits.

Producer Simon Kinberg has said of the follow-up: “I think Deadpool 2 will comment on anything that’s happening in movies today especially in superhero movies. The sort of glut or saturation of these movies and the proliferation of sequels is definitely something we’ll play around with.”
