After the huge success of Deadpool (1), 20th Century Fox have apparently given the green light to start on the sequel – so a collective HOORAY!!! is in order we think!!
The original Deadpool grossed almost US$800 million worldwide, so it was always a pretty good bet that a follow-up would be on the cards.
Sources say Ryan Reynolds will be back in the titular role, and that Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick – producers on the film and the only writers to work on the script – will be taking care of the screenplay.
Release dates are looking at around the start of 2018 – not quite next week, but still sooner than expected!
