Ryan Reynolds has already signed up for a Deadpool sequel.
According to Heroic Hollywood, the 39-year-old Deadpool star has just been confirmed to return for an upcoming sequel… but surely this was inevitable?
“Although he was signed for a sequel, The Hollywood Reporter sources said his WME agents were planning for a big renegotiation that will significantly up his compensation for future instalments,” they explained. “According to my sources, that renegotiation is done and Ryan Reynold’s deal has closed.”

The overwhelmingly positive reactions to Deadpool almost certainly helped Ryan Reynolds to negotiate a better deal. But the best part for us, is that a Deadpool sequel is likely to be on its way… and I get the feeling it’ll be coming sooner rather than later.
“Although I don’t have the deal particulars (the hollywood trades probably do), Ryan Reynolds is locked in to return as the Merc with with Mouth when production on the Deadpool sequel kicks off this fall.”
“Good for Ryan Reynolds who played ball whenever 20th Century Fox needed him to make numerous appearances in character for the hilarious and unprecedented marketing campaign.”
But what will be in the sequel?
Deadpool Has Become Highest-Grossing R-Rated Film Ever
According to rumours, Deadpool 2 will feature a classic team-up with his comic book pal, Cable… and according to Heroic Hollywood, will also feature Domino.
Whether or not that pans out remains to be seen… but a sequel is great news.
Let’s just hope they cast someone incredible as Cable.
Deadpool opened in cinemas on 10 February 2016.
