'Deadpool 2' Has Begun Filming And There Are Photos To Prove It

Ryan Reynolds never really left the Merc with a Mouth behind after his record-breaking turn as Wade Wilson in 2016’s Deadpool. Reynolds kept the anti-hero fresh in everyone’s minds while problems cropped up with the sequel in entertainment news cycles. Director Tim Miller left during pre-production due to creative differences and there was speculation that his departure would keep the sequel from working as well as the first flick. Then there was the search for co-stars to portray Cable and Domino, two fan-favorites of the comic book series.

Throughout it all, Reynolds made sure to keep everyone updated with fun, informative, and Easter Egg-filled tweets.

Now, Reynolds is back in the red suit and in front of the camera as Deadpool 2 starts shooting in Vancouver with new director David Leitch (Atomic Blonde) and a script from returning writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (and an assist from Drew Goddard (Cabin in the Woods).

The sun sets on day 1. Feels good to be back. This dog can hunt.

Of course, there are more photos for those willing to search for long-distance and possibly not-really-obtained-on-the-up-and-up snaps, but I’ll leave that to you. I can tell you that it appears Deadpool has decided to embrace neon colors, thrift store finds, and crashing children’s birthday parties.

Deadpool 2 is set to open June 1, 2018. Reynolds is, of course, back and joined by Morena Baccarin as Deadpool’s love interest Vanessa, Brianna Hilderbrand’s glorious Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Stefan Kapičić’s Colossus, Karan Soni as Dopinder, and T.J. Miller as Wade’s best friend, Weasel. Newcomers Josh Brolin and Zazie Beets join as Cable and Domino, hinting at the possibility of a future X-Force movie, I’d wager.
