The “Merc With a Mouth” will be back.

Deadpool 2” is in the works, with star Ryan Reynolds and director Tim Miller returning to the fold, Fox co-chairman Stacey Snider said at CinemaCon on Thursday.

Fox said that the entire creative team behind the superhero blockbuster will be back, with original writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick handling script duties. As soon as “Deadpool” started smashing records, a sequel was something of a foregone conclusion. The first film grossed $757.3 million globally, making it the highest-grossing R-rated film on a worldwide basis. It also helped reinvigorate Reynolds’ career. His star had hit a low point, diminished by flops such as “RIPD” and “Green Lantern.”

    Cable will be in the second movie, if we can believe Deadpool himself (and I do)!

    “Deadpool” is a pansexual superhero. Anyone who reads/collects comics knows this! ……And yes, more 80s music and definitely more Morena Baccarin, please!

  3. Please direct Justice Society!

  4. Carlos T. Jackal says:

    Will Morena Baccarin be back? And let’s take advantage of that R rating this time, if you catch my meaning…

  5. Gabe says:

    I wanna see that

  6. ZachZent says:

    So, who is Cable?

  7. awakenedvisionary says:

    Apparently the author of this piece never saw “The Proposal” or “Buried.”

  8. apres says:

    Apparently, others did for about $800m and they want more.
