‘Deadpool 2’ Reportedly Already Given Green Light

As 20th Century Fox unleash Deadpool upon the world today, the studio is apparently already putting a sequel into development.

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Fox has already given the green light for Deadpool 2 to move forward, with original Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick already working on the script. While director Tim Miller hasn’t officially signed on for the follow-up, this report claims the studio wants to keep the original creative team intact.

Following the dismal last outing for The Fantastic Four and subsequent cancellation of the planned sequel, Fox has had an opening in their schedule for some time.

As far back as August 2015, a report surfaced that the studio was considering dropping the Fantastic Four sequel in favor of Deadpool 2, but Fox never confirmed that report. Then just a month later, producer Simon Kinberg teased that talks for the follow-up were already under way with 20th Century Fox, while hinting that Cable, the iconic leader of the X-Force comic book series, may make an appearance in Deadpool 2. This isn’t surprising, though, since Rob Liefeld created the comics for both Deadpool and X-Force.

Ryan Reynolds will most certainly return as the Merc With the Mouth for the sequel, but it isn’t known if any of the supporting cast will return. The cast also includes Morena Baccarin, Gina Carano, Ed Skrein, T.J. Miller, Brianna Hildebrand, Olesia Shewchuk, Style Dayne, Rachel Sheen and Dan Zachary. If the Cable character does show up in the sequel, it could help set up the X-Force movie that 20th Century Fox has been developing.

Given the embarrassment caused by The Fantastic Four, it is unlikely that the studio will confirm the sequel until Deadpool is a proven success.

Advanced screenings of Deadpool begin today with an official release on February 12, 2016.
