2016 was an eventful year for comic book movies, with an array of successes, disappointments, and downright disasters. ‘Deadpool’ was one 2016’s success stories. While the first film’s writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick were talking to Comicbook.com about their new sci-fi-horror ‘Life’, the pair commented on how ‘Deadpool 2’ would be cast imminently.
The immensely pleasing mock-rivalry between Ryan Reynolds – aka Deadpool – and Hugh Jackman – aka Wolverine – continues apace. And with Jackman out on the road promoting his latest X-Men outing ‘Logan’, it’s provided Reynolds with a bit of an open goal. Jackman dropped a few snaps over the weekend of the movie’s premiere in Beijing, picturing him with fans. Thanks for an amazing visit Beijing! @WolverineMovie @20thcenturyfox pic.twitter.com/FsbuNpXMQ1
