As we already know, there is a lot of hype with Deadpool. Early screenings resulted to very positive reviews and entertaining advertising may after all lead to a very successful box-office (they are predicting a $55-$70 million four-day opening weekend). So the big guys from 20th Century Fox decided to greenlit Deadpool sequel.
Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are currently writing the sequel, and Tim Miller, however may or may not go back as director, will still be hired to be part of the sequel’s creative team.
The writers are thinking about putting Cable for a very “Deadpool and Cable” sequel, however nothing is still certain, plot wise.
The first movie, Deadpool, premieres this Friday in US theaters.
