20th Century Fox finally confirmed that Deadpool 2 is indeed moving forward. The film company has confirmed that a sequel to the popular superhero flick Deadpool has began production. Tim Miller (the director of ‘Deadpool’) will return with his the original’s entire creative team.
Deadpool is the first LGBT superhero to get his own standalone film, and was seen flirting indistinctly with both men and women throughout the film.
The comic book version of the character is said to “do anything with a pulse”, while director Tim Miller and Ryan Reynolds have described him as “hypersexualised” and “pansexual”.
According to Heroic Hollywood, Reynolds also officially signed on to the sequel last month – this time with a re-negotiated contract.
He reportedly earned just a $2 million advance from the first film, despite it grossing $750 million.
Production sources told the entertainment website that “a deal has closed on the second film in the franchise and production is expected to star this fall” – which could see a release in a couple of years’ time.
