Reportedly, producer Simon Kinberg is now saying that Fox studio is loving the rough edit of Deadpool, they are already plotting for a sequel.
In an interview with Collider for The Martian ( the Matt Damon film that he produced):
“I have seen a rough cut of Deadpool and it’s fantastic. It’s a really good movie. It delivers on the promise of the trailer… We really committed and leaned into it being R-rated. It’s just darker and edgier and weirder in the best way—like Deadpool should be—than any other movie in the genre.”
“We certainly are talking about the sequel—we were talking about the sequel while we were making the movie just because when you make a film like this that’s from a serialized source material, you hope that it’s the first of many… But yeah [Fox is] feeling good about it, we’re all feeling really proud of it, so hopefully before it comes out we will be well into the process of figuring out a sequel.”
Director Tim Miller has mentioned having Cable be a part of the sequel.
“It’s certainly come up because he’s such a big character in the world. And it’s a character that I’ve always wanted to do in one form or another, we talked about Cable actually in Days of Future Past at one point. But yeah we’re in such the early stages of sequel talk it would be genuinely premature for me to say whether or not he was gonna be in it.
Producer Simon Kinberg is closely involved with 20th Century Fox’s super hero and action films (X-Men, Fantastic Four, Mr. and Mrs. Smith).
Deadpool sets its premier on February, 2015. It will truly be the beginning of a happy ending.
