Filming on Deadpool 2 has officially begun. Ryan Reynolds, who plays the lead role and is also a producer on the film, wrote on Instagram that it “feels good to be back.” Additionally, some on-set photos have emerged, showing Deadpool crashing what looks like a child’s birthday party. Sounds about right. You can see the images here.
Earlier this month, Reynolds teased Deadpool 2 in another social media post, releasing a picture of himself as Deadpool in front of the X-Mansion.

Deadpool 2 is set for release on June 1, 2018. The movie will also star Josh Brolin as Cable and Zazie Beetz as Domino. David Leitch (John Wick, Atomic Blonde) is directing the movie, replacing Tim Miller, who reportedly clashed with Reynolds over the direction of the film.
In related news, an adult animated Deadpool show is on the way. The currently untitled series will be overseen by Atlanta star and creator Donald Glover with his brother Stephen. The pair will both act as showrunners, producers, and writers. It is being developed for FXX, the sister channel to FX, and the 10-part first season will premiere next year.
