Deadpool 2 is the upcoming sequel to Deadpool and the second film in the Deadpool trilogy, as well as the twelfth installment in the X-Men film series. It is projected to release worldwide on June 1, 2018.
In September 2015, producer Simon Kinberg said that a sequel for Deadpool is in development. In February 2016, Ryan Reynolds told IGN that he would like to portray his character for the rest of his life. Also, during the same month, the film was greenlit three days before the first film’s release, and Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick already signed on to return, and while director Tim Miller isn’t attached just yet, Fox is hoping to bring him back in order to reunite the creative team who have made this first film.
Ryan Reynolds has expressed interest for Deadpool to have a boyfriend saying “I love that about Deadpool. I love that he can break any boundary. In the future, I hope we get to do that more…I certainly wouldn’t be the guy standing in the way of that. That would be great.”
It was reported that Deadpool 2 wil be released on January 12, 2018, following the release of Logan.  In October 2016, Miller was no longer part of the sequel due to creative differences with Reynolds over the casting of Cable and the film’s direction, either a raunchy comedy or a stylized superhero movie. Six days later, Mashable reported that David Leitch was the frontrunner to direct the sequel, with Drew Goddard and Magnus Martens as other candidates.
Despite the initial release date of January 12, 2018, it was then reported that Deadpool 2 was pushed to back to March 2, 2018.
In November 2016, The Hollywood Reporter announced that Leitch will direct the sequel.
Reese and Wernick had completed multiple drafts of the script by January 2017, and “It’s taken different twists and turns, but it’s really coalescing”; the film was still on track to begin filming that year. The pair felt a responsibility to explore the team X-Force, which includes Deadpool, Cable, and Domino in the comics, with Reese saying the sequel’s purpose “is not to set up X-Force [but] it will likely set up X-Force. He did clarify that though the film will be “populated with a lot of characters…it is still Deadpool’s movie”. The pair confirmed that Stefan Kapicic’s Colossus, Brianna Hildebrand’s Negasonic Teenage Warhead, and Karan Soni’s Dopinder would be returning from the first film to “make at least an appearance”, and that the film would not be exploring the details of Cable’s convoluted comic origins
