We all know there was a surprise screening of Deadpool on Monday night (here) and it was adored by, well, everyone, but afterwards Ryan Reynolds got chatting about the future of the movie… and who else might feature.
You know where this is going already, don’t you?
Anyway, at the event Reynolds was asked if there was any characters he’d like to see in the sequel (if it happens) and, echoing what Deadpool creator Tim Miller said a while back, Reynolds’ first answer was Taskmaster, however he is now back home with Marvel and off limits for FOX: “the studio just called us back and said ‘cha-ching,'” he joked.
Then one fan shouted out: “Cable and Deadpool!” to which Reynolds responded: “Your lips to God’s ears, my friend. Believe me, that’s being talked about,” before adding “If we don’t put Cable in Deadpool 2 I think we’ll be run out of town.”
It makes us wonder if perhaps we will finally see Miller and our first choice of Mad Men star John Hamm in the role… and just how close are they to a definite sequel?
