A Deadpool sequel has already been approved

3 min read


Hot, thick, nine inches long, moist on the inside and easy to grip in one hand. But enough about Deadpool’s favourite chimichanga. This weekend, the merc with a mouth finally gets his big screen debut in a movie that proves that a leading man with a face that looks like Freddy Krueger’s sphincter can be a box office hit.

It’s a different kind of superhero movie, and in no way whatsoever tied to Superhero Movie, a film we’d all like to forget…if we just had the time. Sorry, moving on. Point is, box office estimates for Deadpool are looking good. Damn good. With an estimated opening weekend of between $65 million and $70 million according to so-called experts, Deadpool is probably going to clean up nicely this Valentine’s Day.

It’s going to make money. And in Hollywood, that means sequel. So it’s not exactly surprising to hear that Deadpool part Deux is already in the works now that 20th Century Fox has finally realised that audiences are hungry for a foul-mouthed mercenary in an R-rated world. So sayeth THR, whose sources confirmed that a Deadpool sequel has been greenlit at the X-Men factory.

And it’s about damn time. Deadpool’s first appearance in X-Men Origins: Wolverine was one hell of a wasted opportunity when they decided to retool him as an end-stage boss without a mouth. Director Tim Miller and Ryan Reynolds lobbied for years afterwards to get the regeneratin’ degenerate the big screen push that he deserved,, but 20th Century Fox was massively hesitant to do so.

It was until a certain video was “leaked” onto the net and Fox saw the YouTube numbers explode that they realised that they might have a winner on their hands. So what could a follow up entail from Miller and his writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick? Miller himself has mentioned bringing in Cable to the mix, who just so happens to be a soldier from the future with half a body infected by a techno-organic virus.

And he’s a powerful telekinetic telepath. And he’s the son of Jean Grey and Scott Summers from the X-Men, raised a thousand years in the future to be the ultimate weapon who can finally bring down Apocalypse for good. Because, uh comic books. Just don’t expect Cable to be a good guy in the Deadpool sequel.

Ryan Reynolds gets mouthy this weekend around the world. Meanwhile, underage kids will be trying their hardest to get in to see him in violent action.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

    That, kids, is why you order your tickets online! You don’t even have to wear pants while doing so, never mind dressing up to fool uncaring ticket sellers.

  • Lardus-For the Chimichangas!

    I hope this movie is a huge success and the sequel is truly going ahead. It might just give DC the guts to make the R-Rated version of that fraggin’ bastich!!

    • Alien Emperor Trevor

    But… but think of the children!!!

    PS: @Darryn_Bonthuys:disqus when are you going to start a review series on Lucha Underground?

  • Johann

    Apparently Ryan Reynolds also wants to do an X-Force movie if this one is successful.

  • HvR

    Think 20th Fox holding out on the Deadpool might have contributed to the hype and success for the movie, numerous Deadpool cosplay and related much viewed Youtube videos over the last couple of years definitely made Deadpool more notorious in the mainstream.
