Deadpool was good, wasn’t it? Probably not as good as everyone seemed to bang on about but still really… good. That’s why it’s a treat to hear that the second one will be coming a lot sooner than anticipated.
With Marvel studios basically knocking it out of the park with almost every film and TV/Netflix show they’ve made since 2008 (and with plenty more to come), it’s hard to consider Fox in the same league when all they’ve done is stay in their lane and make pretty passable X-Men outings and god-awful Fantastic Four films for 16 years.
Then Deadpool came along and made us all go “ahh right. Maybe they’re not so bad” andthen X-Men Apocalypse happened andmade us realise that, sometimes, people are just one-hit wonders.
But what a hit, right? That’s why we’re getting a second and it’s coming quicker than we thought.X-Men producer Simon Kinberg said this:
He also said this:
“Well, we hope to shoot the movie sometime at the beginning of next year.
The guys, [Paul] Wernick and [Rhett] Reese, are working on the script, and we hope to have a script very soon.“
That means that Deadpool 2 will probably fill the empty Fox-Marvel slot that has been announced for January 2018.
Cable’s going to be in this one too, as revealed in the post credits scene in the first Deadpool!
So yeah, it’s quicker than we’d thought but it’s still not, like, next week. Annoying.
What do you think? Looking forward to it? Let us know in the comments!
