Deadpool 2: Who Is In It? What's The Cinema Release Date? Everything You Need To Know
After the first movie was such a great success, it was only going to be a matter of time before Deadpool got a sequel. Ryan Reynolds will return as the Merc with a mouth, alongside Josh Brolin who will play Marvel character Cable.
They've released a short trailer and the film's release date, so here's everything you need to know.
What is Deadpool 2 and when will I be able to see it?
Deadpool 2 is the hotly anticipated sequel to 2016's Deadpool. It stars Ryan Reynolds as the title character, also known as Wade Wilson. He was (in this storyline, at least) a Special Forces soldier who became a mercenary but was tortured, deformed, and turned into Deadpool by Ajax, an evil scientist.
He has the power to heal really fast, uses double swords, and a weird sense of humour. He constantly jokes and breaks the fourth wall in the film.
Josh Brolin will play Cable, a soldier from the future with a short temper and a metal arm.
The film is the 11th X-Men film (Deadpool has been in two others) and will probably have a UK rating of '15' at least, given the main character's mouth.
You'll be able to see it on 18 May, according to the trailers.
Who is Ryan Reynolds?
Ryan Reynolds is 41 years old and has starred in films like Adventureland, X Men Origins: Wolverine and The Green Lantern.

Who else is in Deadpool 2?
We don't know that much about it yet, as we've only had a short few trailers, and they're all very silly and pretty dominated by Ryan Reynolds.
We do know that Morena Baccarin will be back in her role as Vanessa Carlysle - who is engaged to Deadpool.
Brianna Hildebrand will return as Negasonic Teenage Warhead (great band name) - a teenaged superhero with the mutant power to create atomic bursts from within herself.
We also know that Terry Crews has been cast in a role, but we don't know much about that yet, either.
