“Deadpool 2” Set Photo & Comedy Tone

Filming is still very much underway on the “Deadpool” sequel and the movie’s star Ryan Reynolds has used his social media channels to share a new photo from the set.

The shot sees Reynolds alongside co-star Leslie Uggams returning as Blind Al for the follow-up. Uggams joins fellow returnees Morena Baccarin, Brianna Hildebrand and Stefan Kapicic.

David Leitch (“John Wick”) helms from a script by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, while the new film’s additional cast includes Josh Brolin, Zazie Beetz, Jack Kesy, Shioli Kutsuna and Julian Dennison.

Brolin also gave an interview with GMA yesterday about the comedic tone we can expect with the new film, and not just from his role as Cable. He says:

“To me, it’s even funnier than the first one. When they asked me to do it, I was like ‘I’m doing the Thanos thing right now, and should I do it?’ And my wife just said ‘Read it. Why are you even thinking? Just read it.’ And I read it and I laughed harder than I’ve laughed in a very long time. So it’s funny. Cable can be very funny. He can be a lot of things, but he can also be very funny… There’s a lot of stuff going on in Deadpool that’s very surprising, and that will be very satisfying when you see it.”

“Deadpool 2” is scheduled to hit theaters on June 1st 2018.

Spent another day with this beautiful lady. Just lost in each other's ears. #BlindAl #DriveBy
