‘Deadpool 2’ and Two New ‘X-Men’ Movies Just Got 2018 Release Dates
Fans have been breathlessly awaiting the sequel to Deadpool since the moment it released, and they won’t be waiting much longer. Fox announced the official release date for Deadpool 2 on Saturday morning, and the follow-up to their surprise hit will debut on June 1, 2018.
It’s a relief to finally get the most important piece of information on Deadpool 2 following a steady stream of leaks on the project over the last year or so. The recently-released teaser for Deadpool 2 even poked fun at the anticipation in typical Deadpool fashion, with the words “Not Soon Enough” standing in for the release date:
The new movie will feature significant additions to the cast; Josh Brolin was selected to play the legendary mercenary Cable, and don’t be surprised if other member of the X-Men slowly start finding their way into the Deadpool series.
Deadpool 2 will be part of an X-Men heavy lineup for the movie studio in 2018, as three different movies in the X-Men universe are set to release next year. New Mutants—a popular-spin off in the comic series featuring a cast of younger, teenaged mutants—will hit the box office first on April 13, 2018. The movie is expected to feature the junior X-Men facing off against one of their long-time enemies, Demon Bear.
