Wait, why does this castle look so familiar?
Ryan Reynolds is probably basking in the awesomeness of being Deadpool at the moment. Yesterday (Sunday, 18th June), the Hollywood star took to Twitter to post the first official set photo of “Deadpool 2”.
In the image above, the 40-year-old actor is in his signature red suit as the Merc with a Mouth. It shows the A-lister lounging outside Charles Xavier’s iconic X-Men mansion. The School for Gifted Youngsters is where mutants train to harness their abilities and become better members of society.
“Dropped by the X-Mansion. Big f**king surprise. No one’s home,” Reynolds tweeted. As you can see, there’s nobody in sight. If you recall, this was the same location where Wade Wilson first met Colossus (played by Stefan Kapicic) and Negasonic Teenage Warhead (played by Brianna Hildebrand).
Located at Hatley Castle in British Columbia, the infamous yellow cab from the first film was also spotted on the film set. It appears that the castle will be featured more prominently in the sequel. The castle was previously used in 2003’s “X2: X-Men United”, 2006’s “X-Men: The Last Stand”, and 2016’s “Deadpool”.
