A few years ago, if you'd said that Deadpool - a character that was almost permanently destroyed by X-Men Origins: Wolverine - would star in a critical and box-office hit that would lead to one of the most anticipated movies of 2018, everyone would have laughed in your face.
But here we are! Deadpool 2 is right around the corner (in less than a year, we'll all have seen it) and the character is no longer the pop-culture poison he was back in 2009.
In fact, he's one of the most bankable superheroes in big-screen history, and because of this success, the impending sequel has a high bar to reach.
But so far, things are looking positive.
After a rough few months that resulted in a director switch-up, we've seen several popular comic-book characters enter the fray, as well as a funny teaser video that was released online, and the sequel has been given an extremely confident release date by the studio.
And that's not all. With principal photography now underway there's plenty to discuss, and since Deadpool 2 is such a high-profile project, there's a ton of available information about the movie that we can mull over.
