Flip and get more on Deadpool 2…
Since the movie ended up making $778.6 million on a modest $58 million budget, a sequel was garuanteed! And let’s not forget Deadpool himself even announcing it to the audience in the movie’s post-credits scene.
Previously Deadpool 2 was officially announced earlier this year, confirming Ryan Reynolds’ and Tim Miller’s involvement, as well as Cable’s introduction. But aside from that, there wasn’t much more information to go by. Now, X-Men producer Simon Kinberg has changed that situation.
It was also rumored that this time around Deadpool will have a male love interest.
During an interview with Collider.com, Kinberg gave an update on the merc-with-a-mouth’s sequel’s script and when they’re hoping filming to begin. When asked about specifics, Kinberg said this:
“Well, we hope to shoot the movie sometime at the beginning of next year.”
As for the script:
“The guys, [Paul] Wernick and [Rhett] Reese, are working on the script, and we hope to have a script very soon.”
It seems that Fox is trying to release Deadpool 2 as soon as possible. Going by this, the merc with a mouth’s sequel could easily take Fox’s mysterious January 12, 2018 Marvel release date. Considering that Deadpool was a massive hit another pre Valentine’s Day release would be perfect.
