'Deadpool 2': Ryan Reynolds agrees to return for sequel
Heroic Hollywood is reporting that Reynolds, who led Deadpool to a global box office of more than $750 million, will reprise the Marvel character for the already greenlit sequel. Considering the first film’s massive haul, this news really isn’t a surprise. It was simply just a matter of what kind of raise Reynolds would see since he only received a reported $2 million upfront salary the first time around.
Since its February 2016 release, Deadpool has smashed box office records and is already the highest grossing R-rated movie ever, surpassing The Matrix Reloaded. Unlike other recent superhero movies (cough…BvS…cough), it also was critically lauded, with a rating on Rotten Tomatoes of 83 percent.
There is no release date yet for Deadpool 2.
