'Deadpool 2' Gets Underway Shooting
Deadpool 2 is officially off and running.
Star Ryan Reynolds on Monday shared a photo of the slate for day one on the highly anticipated sequel to the 2016 Marvel anti-hero hit.
"The sun sets on day 1. Feels good to be back. This dog can hunt," Reynolds wrote.
The actor who perfectly embodies the Merc with a Mouth got Deadpool fans all in a tizzy about a week ago when he shared a photo of Deadpool hanging out in front of the X-Mansion in a similar pose to the one Spider-Man strikes on one of the Homecoming posters.
"Dropped by the X-Mansion. Big f---ing surprise. No one's home," Reynolds wrote then.
Josh Brolin, who plays Cable, has been doing his part in getting fans worked up, too, posting pictures of his transformation into the character, which has largely consisted of him putting on a lot of muscle and getting a new haircut.
Brolin has gotten so jacked for the role, he was even complimented by another Marvel star, Dave Bautista from Guardians of the Galaxy.
Deadpool 2 has a June 1, 2018, release date.
