Ryan Reynolds has given a fanmade Deadpool 2 poster his seal of approval on his Instagram feed. It’s as irreverent as you’d expect and will give you plenty of ideas how to deface your local men’s room sign:
The fanmade poster announces 2018 as when we’ll see the return of the Merc with a Mouth, and that’s a fair guess. Producer Simon Kinberg told us that they hope to start filming early next year, so the film could easily be out in 2018. But when in 2018?
Right now, Fox has untitled Marvel movies set for March 2nd and another set for June 29th. June 29th seems like the more likely option between the two. While March 2nd is closer to the original’s mid-February release date, that date showed that Deadpool could play with the big boys and stand as a serious studio tentpole. Granted, with an almost guaranteed R-rating it’s not like Deadpool 2 needs to wait for kids to be out of school, but the July 4th weekend just seems like a more promising opportunity for the superhero sequel.
So what can we expect from the film? Right now, details are being kept tightly under wraps. The only confirmed detail, which came in the end credits of Deadpool, is that they’re bringing in the character’s good buddy Cable. But we don’t know who will play him, what kind of dynamic the two characters will have in the film, or anything like that. Granted, it’s better than nothing, but considering that they’re still working on the script right now, we’re going to have to be content with speculation for now.
