Deadpool, a superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character, is yet to hit U.S. theaters, but reports are surfacing saying that a sequel is already in the works by 20th Century Fox with the same writers.


The Hollywood Reporter states that 20th Century Fox is already working on a sequel of the motion picture for audiences to get a load of it. Reportedly, screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are already being greenlighted to pen the script for the film’s follow-up.

As the sequel has already been lit, 2016’s Deadpool is aiming for at least $65 million when it fires up on theaters over the upcoming four-day holiday weekend; some estimates an amount north of $70 million.

According to Gizmodo, Deadpool’s writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick had revealed that a follow-up film will definitely make sense, for the reason that the film is expected to be a hit with Ryan Reynolds for the lead role.

Canadian actor Reynolds recently talked about several potential sequels of the film, saying, “In the future, I think, if we’re doing a bunch more Deadpool movies, we’re going to really explore the X-Men a lot, and maybe X-Force.”

Forbes reports that some people might think it’s a bit too early for 20th Century Fox to give information about a sequel. Plans for the revival of director Josh Trank’s “Fantastic Four” included a sequel and the eventual crossover with the X-Men.
