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.”

CinemaCon is an annual exhibition trade show, unfolding this week in Las Vegas. Fox also unveiled footage from the latest “Ice Age” sequel, “X-Men: Apocalypse” and “Independence Day: Resurgence.”

Deadpool” was Miller’s feature film directorial debut. He is also an animator and visual effects specialist.
