Last year Deadpool 2’s release date was confirmed for the 1st of June, 2018, a little over two years following the first movie’s release. The good news is that if you couldn’t wait for the sequel, you’ll be pleased to learn that in a report from The Hollywood Reporter, it looks like the movie’s release date has since been brought forward.


Instead of being released on the 1st of June, Fox has brought forward the movie by about two weeks and will now release it on the 18th of May. This is no doubt great news for fans who can’t wait to see if the sequel will live up to the height of the first movie. Actor Ryan Reynolds will obviously be returning in his role of Deadpool for the movie, and we will also see the addition of characters like Cable (played by Josh Brolin) and also Domino who will be played by Zazie Beetz.

Given the surprising success of the original Deadpool movie, which since inspired and spawned more R-rated superhero movies like Logan, it’s safe to say that many are highly-anticipating the sequel, especially given that the “dream team” behind the first movie broke up when Tim Miller quit the movie and was replaced by John Wick’s David Leitch.

In the meantime it will be interesting to see what the future holds for the Deadpool franchise and how it might possibly interact with the MCU, given that Disney is in the process of acquiring Fox, which includes franchises like Deadpool, the X-Men, and the Fantastic Four, just to name a few.
