Deadpool 2 is an upcoming American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character Deadpool, distributed by 20th Century Fox. It is intended to be the eleventh installment in the X-Men film series, and a sequel to the 2016 film Deadpool.
The film is directed by David Leitch from a script by Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick, and Ryan Reynolds, with Reynolds starring in the title role alongside Josh Brolin, Morena Baccarin, Julian Dennison, Zazie Beetz, T.J. Miller, Brianna Hildebrand, Jack Kesy, and Stefan Kapičić. In Deadpool 2, Deadpool forms the team X-Force to protect a young mutant from Cable.
Plans for a sequel to Deadpool began before that film’s release, and were confirmed in February 2016. Though the original creative team of Reynolds, Reese, Wernick, and director Tim Miller were quickly set to return for the second film, Miller left the project in October 2016 due to creative differences with Reynolds, and was soon replaced by Leitch.
An extensive casting search took place to fill the role of Cable, with Brolin ultimately cast; the casting of Beetz as Domino was also noteworthy. Filming took place in British Columbia, Canada, from June to October 2017. During filming, stunt woman Joi “SJ” Harris died in a motorcycle accident.

Deadpool 2 is scheduled to be released in the United States on May 18, 2018. A sequel, Deadpool 3, is in development.
- Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson / Deadpool:
A wisecracking mercenary with accelerated healing but severe scarring over his body after undergoing an experimental regenerative mutation.
- Josh Brolin as Nathan Summers / Cable:
A time travelling cybernetic mutant soldier, “in many ways the opposite of Deadpool”. Brolin signed a four-film deal to play the character, and described his appearance here as just the introduction for the character, with “a lot to be revealed, but there’s three more movies to reveal more.”
- Morena Baccarin as Vanessa: An escort and Wilson’s fiancée.
- Zazie Beetz as Neena Thurman / Domino:
A mercenary with the mutant ability to manipulate luck. Beetz began “doing strength conditioning, so that’s like working out everyday” when she got the role, for which she has to “be shooting guns, I fight and a lot of that movement is full body and physical.”
- J. Miller as Weasel: Wilson’s best friend, the owner of a bar frequented by mercenaries.
- Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead:
A teenage X-Man with the mutant power to detonate atomic bursts from her body, she is now a “new level of X-Men” after being a trainee in the first film. Hildebrand felt that “it’s cool that she’s grown and matured and she still has so much of this essence of a punk kid” from the first film, and added that the character would have a “cooler” costume in the sequel.
- Jack Kesy as Black Tom Cassidy: A mutant who can manipulate energy through plants.
- Stefan Kapičić as the voice of Colossus:
An X-Man with the mutant ability to transform his entire body into organic steel.Kapičić described Colossus as one of the most important characters in the film, requiring a more intense process for Kapičić during recording for the character. He explained that Colossus would continue to try make Deadpool a better person and potential X-Man after doing so in the first film.
For the Fox presentation at CineEurope 2017 in June, Reynolds made a video message featuring himself in costume as Deadpool from the film’s set. The first teaser poster, which pays homage to Norman Rockwell’s 1943 painting Freedom from Want, was released that November.Justin Carter of Comic Book Resources found it “oddly appropriate for Deadpool 2 to co-opt [this] iconic work for a modern pop culture audience” as it is “true to Deadpool’s incredibly referential nature.” Eric Diaz of Nerdist said, “It strikes exactly the irreverent tone you’d expect for the Deadpool sequel.” The first footage from the film debuted the following week, at the end of a video where Reynolds (in-character as Deadpool) parodies Bob Ross and his television show The Joy of Painting.
The video was described by The Hollywood Reporter’s Ryan Parker as “completely out of left field” and setting the tone perfectly for the film, though his colleague Graeme McMillan was less positive due to not knowing of Ross (Deadpool co-creator Fabian Nicieza thought the fact that many in the audience wouldn’t know of Ross made the video “exactly the kind of quirky pop culture choice that works perfectly for Deadpool”).
Parker added, “This trailer only showed a few seconds from the film, but fans will be talking about it all day” because of the presentation, unlike “any other trailer which would have shown so little of the product.”
Rather than pay for an expensive advertisement spot during Super Bowl LII, the film’s official Twitter account was used to “live tweet” the event with commentary as if the character Deadpool was watching it. A new trailer for the film was released later that week, focusing on introducing Cable. Parker felt that “Reynolds and company have completely changed the trailer game.
The formula of just showing some of the actual movie, but with a tiny story thrown in is such an incredible marketing idea.” McMillan and their colleague Aaron Couch praised the trailer playing on the visual effects for Cable’s arm not being finished, noting it as a joke about the visual effects to remove Henry Cavill’s mustache from Justice League.
The group collectively praised the overall marketing for the franchise, with McMillan suggesting that the campaign for the sequel may surpass that of the first Deadpool. A full trailer for the film, explaining its general plot, was released at the end of March.
Forbes contributor Scott Mendelson called it “pretty funny and mostly entertaining”, but was disappointed in it being a “conventional” trailer compared to the more out-there videos previously released for the film.
He explained that he thought the first film “had a winning lead character and fine character-centric jokes, but a pretty generic origin story plot that eventually became the thing it was critiquing”, and was concerned that the sequel would turn out to be “a more standard ‘superhero sequel’ sell”. Mendelson also noted the inclusion of T.J. Miller in the trailer following the reveal of sexual misconduct allegations against the actor in late 2017, calling it “inevitable no matter how tarnished his reputation might be these days.”
The Hollywood Reporter group also noted the more traditional style of the trailer, but remained generally positive about the film and highlighted the supporting cast for the film as appearing in the trailer, including Brolin, Beetz, Kutsuna, and Crews.

By November 2016, with development underway on Deadpool 2, Fox was also planning Deadpool 3, which was said to include the team X-Force.With the confirmation that Leitch would direct Deadpool 2, it was revealed that Fox was looking for a separate filmmaker to direct Deadpool 3.
In March 2017, Reese clarified that though Deadpool 2 sets-up the X-Force team, a future film focused on the team would be separate from Deadpool 3, “so I think we’ll be able to take two paths. [X-Force] is where we’re launching something bigger, but then [Deadpool 3 is] where we’re contracting and staying personal and small.”
After the proposed acquisition of 21st Century Fox by Disney was announced in December 2017, Disney CEO Bob Iger said that Deadpool would be integrated with the Marvel Cinematic Universe under Disney, and that the company would be willing to make future R-rated Deadpool films “as long as we let the audiences know what’s coming”.
