Great News! Writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have confirmed that X-Men characters Colossus And Negasonic Teenage Warhead will return for Deadpool 2.
Deadpool 2 writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick confirmed the news to Collider.
PAUL WERNICK: I can’t say how much they are…
RHETT REESE: I think we can say. Yeah, they’ll be in the sequel.
WERNICK: Yeah, they’ll make at least an appearance.
Both characaters were a big hit with fans in the first Deadpool. As The Merc with the Mouth pointed out, “It’s almost like they couldn’t afford another X-Man,” when all they could muster was Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand) and Colossus (Stefan Kapicic).
The writers have also warned fans that the sequel will be jam-packed with characters.
The pair told Deadline, “Yeah, it’ll be a solo movie. It’ll be populated with a lot of characters, but it is still Deadpool’s movie, this next one. We’re pushing forward very hard. I think by every account we will shoot it this year, and we’re on our multiple draft now. It’s taken different twists and turns, but it’s really coalescing, and we’re very, very excited.”
“We’re a little nervous, because now we feel like we have to live up to the first movie, but at the same time, we have to have faith, and we have an extreme passion still, and as long as we have passion still, and it’s not a mercenary, venal play, which we don’t think this is, I think we’ll be in good shape.”
