Deadpool 2 Is Headed For Reshoots
Though he was conspicuously absent from last Sunday’s Super Bowl extravaganza, the Merc is clearly making up for lost time.
After two zany poster reveals, we finally got the first full-blown trailer for Deadpool 2. Initially unveiled earlier this week, it was a hilarious, downright meta preview of the Merc’s next big-screen adventure, which swings its doors open to both Domino (Zazie Beetz) and our favorite time-traveling bandit, Cable.
Infinity War‘s Josh Brolin has signed on to play the latter anti-hero, who will presumably enjoy a small origin story of his own based on the above teaser. It’s a suitably dark and bleak introduction to a character who’s been described as a one-eyed wrecking ball. He’s also the biological son of Cyclops (Scott Summers) and Madelyne Pryor (Jean Grey’s clone), which ought to lend Ryan Reynolds plenty of ammunition for one or three X-Men-related gags. Justice League isn’t off limits, after all, so we’re fully confident in Deadpool 2‘s ability to match the success of its predecessor.
But before we get to all that, it looks as if the sequel is headed back into production for some reshoots. The news comes courtesy of Brolin’s Instagram page, where he revealed that he’ll be suiting up as Cable again as the cast and crew shoot a bit more footage and perhaps tweak a few scenes.
Exact details on what needs to be addressed isn’t clear, but we don’t imagine there’s anything to worry about. After all, reshoots are pretty standard for big budget blockbusters and though they have taken on a negative connotation in recent years, for the most part, they aren’t a cause for panic. Everything we’ve seen from the upcoming sequel so far looks great and with no reports about there being any trouble with the current cut, it’s most likely that these reshoots are just par for the course.
20th Century Fox and David Leitch (John Wick: Chapter 2) will deliver another slice of frenzied comic book action when the untitled Deadpool 2 opens on May 18th. That’s just two weeks after Josh Brolin tends to villain duties on another superhero blockbuster (Infinity War), so it’s shaping up to be a pretty wild month for the 49-year-old star. Stay tuned for more.
