Deadpool 2 already on its way?

April 6th, 2016 by Marc Comments


After the immense success of Deadpool, there has never been any question over Ryan Reynolds returning for a sequel. However, it looks as though the star has already closed his deal to appear in an upcoming installment and Fox may be looking to make Deadpool 2 a priority for the immediate future.

Deadpool 2 was first announced back in February but with the first film breaking all kinds of box office records, Reynolds was reportedly eager to renegotiate his contract. Now, Heroic Hollywood (via Squareeyed) are reporting that the deal has been closed.

No specific story details are known about Deadpool 2 at this time but Rhett Reese and Paul Wernwick are both confirmed to return to write the screenplay. Director Tim Miller is also expected to return.

Shooting is expected to take place later this year so it’s possible we could see the Merc With a Mouth back on our screens as early as 2017 – now wouldn’t that just be awesome!?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
