'Deadpool 2' Gets an Official Release Date

Deadpool 2 — one of Hollywood's most anticipated sequels — has booked a release date in theaters.

The followup to the groundbreaking and irreverent superhero 2016 film will hit the big screen on June 1, 2018, Fox said early Saturday.

Ryan Reynolds once again stars as the titular superhero in Deadpool 2. The film series is a passion project for the actor, who spent years trying to get the first Deadpool made.

Reynolds, a producer on the films, also played a key role in the award-winning marketing campaign for Deadpool. The movie, released in February 2016, was a sleeper hit, earning $783 million worldwide to become the top-grossing R-rated film of all time.

Deadpool 2 reunites Reynolds with Deadpool scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, with Drew Goddard assisting on the script as well. This time, David Leitch is in the director's chair instead of Tim Miller.

Newcomers to Deadpool 2 include Zazie Beetz as Domino and Josh Brolin as Cable. Shooting is set to begin in June.
