No one can say they expect Deadpool to do as well it did in theaters and in the hearts of fans, but somehow it pulled it off. This movie broke multiple records – the most notable one being the highest grossing R-Rated film of all time – and with the small amount of money the film was made with, it brought back in a lot more than expected, which should help increase the budget they’re allotted for the sequel.
With the sequel being announced in the end credit scene of the first film, it’s pretty normal that we don’t know much about the film, other than the fact that we can expect to see Cable AND Domino in it (no actor has been announced to play either character yet). One thing we have just learned though is that the film may already begin filming later this year.
According to Heroic Hollywood, a source of theirs claims Ryan Reynolds just finished renegotiating his deal with 20th Century Fox, and now he’s good to go for the Deadpool sequel. With that in mind, it’s safe to assume that they would push for a fall 2016 filming date, so hopefully the film could finish filming by 2018, and take up the spot of the yet-to-be-announced January 2018 date that Fox had announced one of their movies would be released on.
Director Tim Miller and titular star Ryan Reynolds were able to capture the character in his most distinguishable form, leaving moviegoers worldwide wanting more. Hopefully they’ll make it their goal to dish out another film for the Merc With a Mouth as soon as possible.
The Deadpool sequel has yet to receive an official release date, but it may be released on January 12th, 2018.
