Wonder if the studio can afford to hire more X-Men for this one.
Whose kitty litter did Ryan Reynolds sh#t in to make this happen?
Ryan Reynolds will return as the crude, loud-mouthed mutant along with screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick plus director Tim Miller, The Guardian reported.
That’s a winning combination for the studio, with the foursome playing a big role in Deadpool’s record-breaking debut.
In case you missed it (or for the Millennials – ICYMI), the anti-hero generated some $757 million in the box office, making it the second-highest grossing film for 2016 (so far) and the highest-grossing R-rated movie of all time.
The movie’s success aside, it was pretty obvious to fans that Ryan Reynolds would sport the red and black suit again, thanks to the not-so-subtle post-credit scene (what a #Deadgiveaway).
While not much is known about the sequel, that final scene from the first movie did indicate the introduction of a new X-Men character, Cable.
In the comics, Cable is the son of Cyclops and Jean Grey. He has Grey’s telekinesis powers plus the ability to travel through time.
Since Grey and Cyclops have not yet conceived a child in the current X-Men timeline, we would assume Cable uses his time travelling power to visit Deadpool ‘from the future past’.
