Deadpool 2 is an upcoming American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character Deadpool, distributed by 20th Century Fox. It is intended to be the eleventh installment in the X-Men film series, and a sequel to the 2016 film Deadpool. The film is directed by David Leitch from a script by Rhett ReesePaul Wernick, and Ryan Reynolds, with Reynolds starring in the title role alongside Josh BrolinMorena BaccarinJulian DennisonZazie BeetzT.J. MillerBrianna HildebrandJack Kesy, and Stefan Kapičić.

Plans for a sequel to Deadpool began before that film’s release, and were confirmed in February 2016. Though the original creative team of Reynolds, Reese, Wernick, and director Tim Miller were quickly set to return for the second film, Miller left the project in October 2016 due to creative differences with Reynolds, and was soon replaced by Leitch. An extensive casting search took place to fill the role of Cable, with Brolin ultimately cast; the casting of Beetz as Domino was also noteworthy. Filming took place in British Columbia, Canada, from June to October 2017. During filming, stunt woman Joi “SJ” Harris died in a motorcycle accident.

Deadpool 2 is scheduled to be released on May 16, 2018 in the United Kingdom, and two days later on May 18, 2018 in the United States. A sequel, Deadpool 3, is in development.

Cast

  • Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson / Deadpool:
    A wisecracking mercenary with accelerated healing but severe scarring over his body after undergoing an experimental regenerative mutation.[1]
  • Josh Brolin as Nathan Summers / Cable:
    A time travelling cybernetic mutant soldier, “in many ways the opposite of Deadpool”. Brolin signed a four-film deal to play the character,[2] and described his appearance here as just the introduction for the character, with “a lot to be revealed, but there’s three more movies to reveal more.”[3]
  • Morena Baccarin as Vanessa: An escort and Wilson’s fiancée.[4]
  • Julian Dennison[5]
  • Zazie Beetz as Neena Thurman / Domino:
    A mercenary with the mutant ability to manipulate luck.[6][7] Beetz began “doing strength conditioning, so that’s like working out everyday” when she got the role, for which she has to “be shooting guns, I fight and a lot of that movement is full body and physical.”[8]
  • T.J. Miller as Weasel: Wilson’s best friend, the owner of a bar frequented by mercenaries.[9]
  • Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead:
    A teenage X-Man with the mutant power to detonate atomic bursts from her body,[10] she is now a “new level of X-Men” after being a trainee in the first film.[11] Hildebrand felt that “it’s cool that she’s grown and matured and she still has so much of this essence of a punk kid” from the first film, and added that the character would have a “cooler” costume in the sequel.[12]
  • Jack Kesy as Black Tom Cassidy: A mutant who can manipulate energy through plants.[13]
  • Stefan Kapičić as the voice of Colossus:
    An X-Man with the mutant ability to transform his entire body into organic steel.[10] Kapičić described Colossus as one of the most important characters in the film, requiring a more intense process for Kapičić during recording for the character. He explained that Colossus would continue to try make Deadpool a better person and potential X-Man after doing so in the first film.[14]

Additionally, Leslie Uggams and Karan Soni return as Deadpool’s elderly roommate Blind Al and the taxi driver Dopinder, respectively, from the first film.[15][16] Shioli KutsunaEddie MarsanTerry CrewsRob Delaney and Bill Skarsgård have been cast in undisclosed roles.[17][18][19]

Production Development

Producer Simon Kinberg revealed in September 2015 that discussions had begun regarding ideas for a sequel to Deadpool, which was set to be released in February 2016. One idea was for the film to introduce the character Cable, who had previously been looked at to appear in the first Deadpool, and X-Men: Days of Future Past before that.[20] Cable’s inclusion in the potential sequel was confirmed by the character Deadpool, breaking the fourth wall, in the post-credit scene of the first film. Domino, a character with connections to Cable in the comics, was also believed to be featured in the sequel.[21] By the first film’s release, 20th Century Fox had green-lit a sequel, with writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick returning to write the screenplay. Though director Tim Miller and producer/star Ryan Reynolds were not confirmed for the sequel at the time, Fox was “intent on keeping the creative team together”.[1] Miller and Reynolds’ involvement was confirmed at the 2016 CinemaCon that April,[22] though Miller had still not formally signed on to direct the sequel yet. He began work developing the script with the writers, while Reynolds had signed a new contract granting him “casting approval and other creative controls”.[23]

In June 2016, Kinberg said that a completed draft from Wernick and Rheese was expected “soon”, and that they were looking to begin filming the sequel at the beginning of 2017.[25] By August, Kyle Chandler was believed to be in the running to portray Cable.[26] Testing of actresses for Domino had also begun by October, with the shortlist of actresses under consideration including Lizzy CaplanMary Elizabeth WinsteadSienna MillerSofia BoutellaStephanie SigmanSylvia HoeksMackenzie DavisRuby RoseEve Hewson, and Kelly Rohrbach.[7] The producers were particularly interested in casting a black or Latina actress in the role.[6]

At the end of October, Miller left the film over “mutual creative differences” with Reynolds.[27] The rift between the pair was reportedly based on several factors, including Reynolds’ expanded creative control over the sequel; Miller’s wish for a more stylized follow-up than the first film, versus Reynolds’ focus “on the raunchy comedy style that earned the first movie its R rating”; and Miller’s intention to cast Chandler as Cable, which Reynolds opposed. Fox ultimately backed “its marketable star” over Miller, who had made his directorial debut with the first film.[23] Miller denied these reported reasons,[28] while Reynolds said, “All I can really add is that I’m sad to see him off the film. Tim’s brilliant and nobody worked harder on Deadpool than he did.”[29] A week after Miller’s departure, Fox was looking at David LeitchDrew Goddard, Magnus Martens, and Rupert Sanders as potential replacements for the director.[30][31] Leitch was the “strong frontrunner” for the role,[32] and signed on to direct a month later.[31] Reynolds, a fan of Leitch’s John Wick, said the director “really understands those Deadpool sensibilities and where we need to take the franchise from here.” He added that Leitch “can make a movie on an ultra tight minimal budget look like it was shot for 10–15 times what it cost.”[24]

Post-production

In January 2018, the film’s release was moved up to May 18, 2018.[56] A month later, Terry Crews was revealed to have a role in the film,[19] the character Shatterstar was confirmed to be appearing,[14] and the production returned to Vancouver for reshoots under a new working title, Daisy.[57][58] The reshoots lasted for six days.[58] While some reports emerged by mid-March claiming that the reshoots were due to poor audience responses during test screenings of the film, and consisted of sweeping changes,[59] the film was soon confirmed to be testing better than the previous film with test audiences, up to 98 out of 100 over three different tests (compared to a maximum score of 91 during tests of the first film). Because of this, the reshoots were adding more of the elements that audiences responded positively to, including additional material featuring Cable and Domino.[59][58] By the end of March, two hours-worth of filming had taken place in Los Angeles for a then-secret cameo appearance.[58]

Music

Deadpool composer Junkie XL chose not to return for the sequel due to Miller’s departure.[60] In October 2017, Tyler Bateswas hired to write the score for the film.[61]

Release

Deadpool 2 is set to be released in the United States on May 18, 2018.[56] It was previously scheduled for release on June 1 of that year.[44][62]

Marketing

For the Fox presentation at CineEurope 2017 in June, Reynolds made a video message featuring himself in costume as Deadpool from the film’s set.[63] The first teaser poster, which pays homage to Norman Rockwell‘s 1943 painting Freedom from Want, was released that November. Justin Carter of Comic Book Resources found it “oddly appropriate for Deadpool 2 to co-opt [this] iconic work for a modern pop culture audience” as it is “true to Deadpool’s incredibly referential nature.”[64] Eric Diaz of Nerdist said, “It strikes exactly the irreverent tone you’d expect for the Deadpool sequel.”[65] The first footage from the film debuted the following week, at the end of a video where Reynolds (in-character as Deadpool) parodies Bob Ross and his television show The Joy of Painting.[66][11] The video was described by The Hollywood Reporters Ryan Parker as “completely out of left field” and setting the tone perfectly for the film, though his colleague Graeme McMillan was less positive due to not knowing of Ross (Deadpool co-creator Fabian Nicieza thought the fact that many in the audience wouldn’t know of Ross made the video “exactly the kind of quirky pop culture choice that works perfectly for Deadpool“). Parker added, “This trailer only showed a few seconds from the film, but fans will be talking about it all day” because of the presentation, unlike “any other trailer which would have shown so little of the product.”[67]

Rather than pay for an expensive advertisement spot during Super Bowl LII, the film’s official Twitter account was used to “live tweet” the event with commentary as if the character Deadpool was watching it.[68] A new trailer for the film was released later that week, focusing on introducing Cable. Parker felt that “Reynolds and company have completely changed the trailer game. The formula of just showing some of the actual movie, but with a tiny story thrown in is such an incredible marketing idea.” McMillan and their colleague Aaron Couch praised the trailer playing on the visual effects for Cable’s arm not being finished, noting it as a joke about the visual effects to remove Henry Cavill‘s mustache from Justice League. The group collectively praised the overall marketing for the franchise, with McMillan suggesting that the campaign for the sequel may surpass that of the first Deadpool.[19]

Sequel

By November 2016, with development underway on Deadpool 2, Fox was also planning Deadpool 3, which was said to include the team X-Force.[69] With the confirmation that Leitch would direct Deadpool 2, it was revealed that Fox was looking for a separate filmmaker to direct Deadpool 3.[31] In March 2017, Reese clarified that though Deadpool 2 sets-up the X-Force team, a future film focused on the team would be separate from Deadpool 3, “so I think we’ll be able to take two paths. [X-Force] is where we’re launching something bigger, but then [Deadpool 3 is] where we’re contracting and staying personal and small.”[70] After the proposed acquisition of 21st Century Fox by Disney was announced in December 2017, Disney CEO Bob Iger said that Deadpool would be integrated with the Marvel Cinematic Universe under Disney,[71] and that the company would be willing to make future R-rated Deadpool films “as long as we let the audiences know what’s coming”.[72]
