The movie has just premiered in Malaysia but already, there’s a demand for more of “Deadpool” and obviously, Fox knows that.
Hence, a “Deadpool” sequel is already in the works, as confirmed by THR, citing an insider source.
Fox has greenlit the sequel and they’re reportedly intending on keeping the same team together. Writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who wrote “Deadpool”, are working on the script for “Deadpool 2”, while the studio is hoping to reunite Ryan Reynolds with director Tim Miller for the sequel.
Of course, Ryan Reynolds is expected to return for part 2 of the slapstick superhero movie.
Tim Miller too, since he previously openly spoke of a “Deadpool” sequel and the possibility of including the character Cable:
There aren’t really many definitive Deadpool villains, apart from Cable. If we don’t put Cable in Deadpool 2 I think we’ll be run out of town on a rail.
In case you don’t know who the incredibly powerful Cable is, he’s the son of X-Men’s Cyclops (Scott Summers) and Madelyne Pryor (Jean Grey’s clone).
Although born in the present, he was sent forward in time, but traveled back to the present day as an adult to prevent his apocalyptic future he was raised in from ever occurring. He and Deadpool first crossed paths in New Mutants #98 when Deadpool was hired to kill him.
The X-Men film franchise may be more than 15 years old but Cable hasn’t been introduced yet. If Fox is settled on using the character, the “Deadpool 2” would be the best place for him to make his debut. That would be a pretty interesting spin on the next “Merc with a Mouth” film, no? :)
Hang tight as we wait for more “Deadpool 2” news e.g. film date, locations, casting, teasers, etc. Meanwhile, get to know the heroes and villains of Marvel’s “Deadpool” here.
