Production on Deadpool 2 is looking to begin in the coming months with David Leitch directing. We’re starting to learn who’ll be returning from the first film. Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick recently confirmed that Karan Soni’s Dopinder would be back for the sequel.
While speaking with Collider the screenwriters confirmed that Brianna Hildebrand’s Negasonic Teenage Warhead and Colossus will be returning as well.
We know when it comes to Deadpool 2, the Merc with the Mouth will be joined by Domino and Cable, but there’s been no word yet on other supporting characters. However, earlier today Steve Weintraub had an extended interview with writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick and learned that Negasonic and Colossus will be returning for the sequel: PAUL WERNICK: I can’t say how much they are… RHETT REESE: I think we can say. Yeah, they’ll be in the sequel.
We’ve previously reported that Fox is aiming to begin production on Deadpool 2 sometime between May and June in Vancouver. The studio has yet to announce a release date for the sequel.
