If the fans will follow Ryan Reynolds posts it would seem that he has already revealed the possible title of Deadpool’s sequel which includes a cameo of another X-Men character.
Reynolds posted a picture on his Instagram account of him vandalizing a signage with a title on the top that reads “Deadpool: Number Two,” which could be the film’s sequel title. In the picture, it also shows Deadpool’s hands vandalizing a bathroom signage. If taking it at face value it shows two familiar X-Men figures, namely Wolverine and Professor Xavier.
Then Reynolds placed a caption that would read “Ahhhhh, @mutant101 (a fan who made the poster). Isn’t this a felony?” giving Deadpool fans something to look forward to in the coming sequel. Hollywood Reported noted that Reynolds post has a release date for the sequel, which will be in 2018.
The date release makes sense as film producer Simon Kinberg has stated that filming of the Deadpool sequel will start at the beginning of next year. Deadpool created a lot of noise since it went on to be the highest-grossing Rate R film ever. Fans wanted to drop the film’s rating and agreed to cut some scenes to cater to young Deadpool fans, but it never pushed through.
However, having the X-Men characters doing a cameo in the film’s sequel are things to consider. Hugh Jackman has already stated that he is hanging the blades after filming the latest Wolverine film. It is still not clear if Jackman managed to agree with doing a cameo in Deadpool’s sequel and there is no official word as well as what Professor Xavier’s role will be in the film.
Though it would not be the first time that X-Men characters were part of the film. It would be remembered that in the film’s initial release, Deadpool got help from the Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand). Both X-Men characters were included in the film to convince Deadpool to join them at the Xavier Mansion – home of the X-Men. Thus, having Wolverine and Professor Xavier would be fitting enough as they will again try to convince Deadpool to come and join them and stop wrecking havoc in the city.
Since talks of the story line are in the mix, rumors are swirling as well that Deadpool will have a new love interest with the addition of Blake Lively, Reynolds wife. Celeb Dirty Laundry reports that aside from monitoring his husband, Lively could also match the playfulness that Reynolds brings to the big screen. She adds that it is hard for her to see her husband kissing another woman who signals that she will make her debut in the film together with her husband.
As Deadpool fans await the release of the film’s sequel, they will just have to contend themselves with either rumor being posted on websites or posts from the film’s stars such as Reynolds.
