All good things come to those who wait, it is said. But trust the 'Merc with a Mouth' to do things differently. Deadpool 2, which is expected to be a laugh riot just like its predecessor, Deadpool, will make you go ROFL with its R-rated jokes earlier than you expected.
Twentieth Century Fox has shuffled the release dates for its slate of X-Men films and moved Deadpool 2 to May 18 from June 1, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The film will open against against Sony's horror film Slender Man, and the move leaves the June 1 date without a film opening.
Deadpool 2 marks the return of the foul-mouthed superhero (Ryan Reynolds) with Josh Brolin playing Cable. The superhero sequel also stars Atlanta breakout Zazie Beetz as the mutant mercenary Domino. Reynolds had also teased fans with the advanced date on his social media timeline.
Fox also announced that another X-Men movie, New Mutants has been moved back by 10 months from April 13, 2018, to February 22, 2019. The film stars Anya Taylor-Joy, Maisie Williams and Charlie Heaton.
