That’s a wrap! Deadpool 2 is in the can!— Rhett Reese (@RhettReese) October 14, 2017
That’s a wrap on DEADPOOL 2: A SONG OF FIRE AND ICE! Thank you to our beloved Captain, Mr. @davidmleitch... words are too clumsy to properly acknowledge your giant heart and talent. I love my hometown of Vancouver and our obscenely gifted crew. From our PA’s, (who are first in and last out) to our set decorators and prop department, riddling this film with Easter Eggs in almost every scene... Thank you. I already miss being on set. Which is why I’ve decided to continue shooting the film in my underwear from Josh Brolin’s well appointed living room. #MaximumEffort
This is a fun little detail that has been part of Marvel Comics for years!
Production began on Deadpool 2 in Canada back in June 2017, a little while later production on was briefly haulted following the tragic death of Joi "SJ" Harris, a professional road racer who was acting as the stunt double for Domino actress Zazie Beetz. Filming resumed two days later.
Deadpool 2 opens in theaters on June 1, 2018.
Another Marvel movie has also wrapped up shooting, director Simon Kinberg revealed on Instagram that X-Men: Dark Phoenix has also wrapped principal photography.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix is the fourth chapter in the series of mutant-focused films set in the past, and is the seventh X-Men film. It picks up after the events of X-Men: Apocalypse.
The movie is Kinberg’s directorial debut, but he has served as producer on just about all of the X-Men movies since X-Men: The Last Stand.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix is scheduled to hit theaters November 2, 2018.
