    But this has nothing to do with the MCU.

    I include everything here unfortunately. I proposed a X-verse thread but there wasn't interest from the others in the staff. I probably start it later this week anyway.

    Mod Note: "Deadpool 2" content moved to its own discussion thread.

    Allegedly, there's a second post-credits scene for the Deadpool movie confirming
    will appear in the sequel.

    No guarantee Deadpool will be #1 this weekend, so Fox is again putting the cart before the horse.

    It doesn't need to be #1, it just needs to make enough back to justify a sequel. And the competition in theaters this week is not much.

    With modest budget of 50 million, Deadpool really doesn't need to make huge blockbuster numbers in order to ensure the sequel.

    Alot of reports say it's more like $58 production budget. With that number and the excellent (yet quite possibly) expensive marketing costs, it would need to be at least a hundred million. Somehow I think it will get about $250 million worldwide when it's over.

    I'm hearing that it's set to make around 70 mil opening weekend, so if it has strong legs, that should definitely guarantee a sequel.

    Personally, for a sequel, literally all I ask for is Cable - but Domino would be nice too.

    It would be cool if we have a Deadpool 2 to go along with New Mutants and Gambit, and it also helps setup X-Force down the line :cool:.

    I don't think anybody's going to mind it taking FF2's place :p.

    Fox must be really good to hide the fact they cancelled their own film. It is no longer on schedule for June 19, 2017. I think they replaced it with Kingsman 2.

    The writers later clarified that it's really unlikely it'll take FF2's slot. That movie definitely isn't happening, but the release date is still only a year away. It's not a good idea to write, cast, shoot and post-produce a superhero movie in only a year's span of time.

    Yeah, Kingsmen 2 is around there - June 16 though I think. But like the writers said, summer 2017 is too soon. 2017 is going to be Gambit and the sequel to The Wolverine, I believe.

    I... don't see how Deadpool wouldn't be number one. What's there to compete against it? Zoolander 2 has gotten NO promtion or buzz whatsoever in the last few months at all and all reviews are being pretty critical about it. And outisde of Pitch Perfect, Rebel Wilson hasn't exactly proven to be a successful draw. Ditto for Dakota Johnson who yeah ruled last year but... How To Be Single doesn't have a Twilight fanction turned world wide success book series behind it to back it and Deadpool's getting an incredible load of promotion all over the board.

    So again I see this being more officially confirmed when we see how it opens. And having seen the movie

    The movie could stop making money at this very second and its sequel would still be assured.
    Not just because it broke records, but because Kingsman 2 (slightly budgeted higher yet lower gross) is still slated.

    Yeah, the sort of rumor that has the official wiki of her character saying she will... which means the "if we remember they put this down we can prove yet another inaccuracy of wiki or them reporting on something immiedatley even in early rumor phase turning out to be true" kind of rumor. :)

    Well to be fair hobby and Rory were talking about the figures BEFORE Deadpool's first weekend box office info was offiically stated. Since honestly I don't think anyone was predicting it to be that high. Heck even I thought just like 100 million might of been too much let alone 132. So yeah pretty obvious it is getting a sequel and FOX was right to call it out right before. Unlike Fan4stic where a sequel was planned out several months before the movie premiered... and we all know how that turned out.
