'Deadpool' Made A Metric Ass-Ton Of Money And The Sequel Is Closer Than We Think

Allegedly. The part about the sequel being close. The money is fact.

Deadpool has pulled in dickety-billions of dollars during its theater run, becoming the highest grossing X-Men movie and lots of other Best Things. I personally contributed to the success with the purchase of six movie tickets and the threatening of a horse’s ass in the audience who kept screeching “SHOOOOOOOOP” during the credits. As such, I feel compelled to share with you some news concerning the sequel.


First off, it appears that Ryan Reynolds (God’s Perfect Idiot) has been able to parlay the merc’s big-screen success into a much larger payday for number two. Let me rephrase that so it doesn’t sound like Reynolds is being paid for a turd he dropped: Reynolds has supposedly been able to ink a deal for a much larger payday than the $2 million earned from Deadpool. This ensures Blake Lively can keep starring in movies like The Shallows and The One I Forget The Name of But It Is Age of Something, Ironically Since She Doesn’t Age and Baby James won’t starve.

Second of all, Cable was SPOILER teased as being in the next Deadpool movie by Deadpool. In his movie. END SPOILER. The interwebs seem to think that Domino will also be in the sequel. MY PICK FOR DOMINO: Olivia Thirlby.
MY PICK FOR CABLE: Sean Bean? Or maybe Bradley “EILF” Cooper in old dude makeup?

Last of all, Deadpool 2: Electric Shootaloo is set to begin filming this fall. Allegedly. So sit on that and then go touch yourself tonight.
