Let’s face it, Ryan Reynolds is the best celebrity of all time. Not only does he embody his most famous on-screen persona, he also trolls the shit out of us via his various social media accounts, in true Deadpool fashion. And now he’s gone and done it again, with the very first promo shot from the much anticipated sequel Deadpool 2.
The pic shows everyone’s favourite Merc with a Mouth, casually chilling out in front of the X-Mansion, enjoying the sunshine, or perhaps having a snooze. It’s not easy being a superhero after all.
The inclusion of this shot, which Reynold’s tagged with: “Dropped by X-Mansion. Looked closely for Beast’s lawn bombs before taking (a) well deserved nap”, likely means the inclusion of some more familiar faces from the MCU. In Deadpool, he was joined by Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand). Who might join in the fun this time? *Cough* *cough* … Logan … *cough*
Shooting has begun on the sequel, with David Leitch (John Wick) now taking on responsibilities as director, and Josh Brolin (Goonies) joining the cast as Nathan Summers, aka Cable. Details of the plot remain a closely guarded secret, but considering how popular Deadpool was upon its initial release, and how highly anticipated the sequel has been, there’s more than a little pressure on everyone’s shoulders.
Deadpool 2 will open in theaters on June 1, 2018.
