There’s close to a year to go before the Merc with the mouth takes over movie screens again in Deadpool 2. However, that doesnt mean that the anti-hero will not be giving us cool little tid bits, easter eggs and set photos like this first one from its star Ryan Reynolds. Deadpool in full costume is hanging out in front of the X-men mansion.
Now even though we have gotten so much great news already with Deadpool 2 such as bringing a pair of famous comics characters into view: Josh Brolin as Cable and Zazie Beets (Atlanta) as Domino. After the surreal success of the first film 20th Century Fox no doubt increased the budget this time around. We are not sure if director David Leitch and Reynolds will be including actual X-Men cameos this time around (aside Colossus who will be returning), or if they’re gonna maintain the scrappy spirit of the first movie. What we do know is that Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, James McAvoy, and Nicholas Hoult are in the midst of negotiations to return for X-Men: Dark Phoenix, and that film is scheduled to be in production at the same time as Deadpool 2, so it’s possible that some cast crossover could occur. If anything just doing something silly in the spirit of the film or have them actually dealing with their issues in their film would be amazing.
Deadpool 2 is slated to hit theaters June 1, 2018
Production for the highly anticipated sequel begins at the end of the month and with that 20th Century Fox is rounding out the rest of its cast.
According to Deadline, 20th Century Fox has cast Shioli Kutsuna in a key role in their upcoming Ryan Reynolds-led Marvel sequel Deadpool 2. No further details on her role were provided.
The 24-year-old Japanese actress joins a cast that recently added Josh Brolin (Avengers: Infinity War) as Cable, Zazie Beetz (Atlanta) as Domino, and Jack Kesy (Baywatch) as the villain, Black Tom Cassidy. The report also notes that Morena Baccarin, Leslie Uggams, Stefan Kapičić, and Brianna Hildebrand will all reprise their roles from the first installment. Aside from the roles in which we already know of, Fox is keeping a lot of its details and plot under wraps.
David Leitch (John Wick) will be in the director’s chair, utilizing a script from the duo of Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Production is expected to begin June 26.
Deadpool 2 slices and swears its way into theaters June 1, 2018
It seems as if Deadpool has found their villian or maybe just A villian. This is a Deadline exclusive.
2oth Century Fox has set Jack Kesy to play a major villain in Deadpool 2. While insiders said it isn’t entirely clear which baddie he will play, sources have pinpointed a character called Black Tom. In the comics, he is a nemesis in the X-Men universe, a Dublin-born mutant who can manipulate, bond with, and project energy through plant life. He is also capable of issuing concussive blasts with a wooden object, usually a shillelagh.
The David Leitch-directed Deadpool 2 is set for release June 1, 2018, with Ryan Reynolds reprising his role as the Merc with the Mouth, and hopes are high after the original grossed $783 million to become the highest-ever-grossing R-rated film worldwide. Josh Brolin has already been set to play the principal villain, Cable. Morena Baccarin is back as Deadpool’s love interest Vanessa, Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Stefan Kapacic as the metallic Colossus, and Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, perhaps the coolest sounding superhero in the Marvel universe.
Kesy might be best known for playing Gabriel Bollivar in the TV series The Strain, a goth rock star who was one of the early plane passengers infected with the virus that turned them into vampires
Here’s the thing Cassidy may not be the main villain. If you believe that he is not who do you think is the big bad for the Merc with a mouth?
Let the speculation and anticipation continue. For a while now we’ve been hearing about Ryan Reynolds personal campaign to get Hugh Jackman to sign onto a Deadpool/Wolverine buddy film. But now we don’t know if this is anything but it has us here at the Trusty Sidekick kind of excited.
Ryan Reynolds posted a photo to his official instagram along with the aforementioned Jackman and former James Bond, Pierce Brosnan. Could Brosnan be Cable in the upcoming Deadpool sequel? Could Jackman actually have signed on? We would like to know your thoughts.
