Deadpool 2 'to start filming in autumn'

A 'Deadpool' sequel is set to start filming this autumn.

Ryan Reynolds is to reprise his titular role as the superhero following the success of the first film, which has become the highest-grossing R-rated film in box office history after netting $745 million at the box office.

Sources told movie news website Heroic Hollywood a deal has closed on the second film in the franchise and production is expected to star this fall.

'Deadpool' producer Simon Kinberg recently hinted time-travelling mutant Cable - Deadpool's friend and foe in the comic books - may feature in a possible follow-up film.

He said: "I think there are some stories that could be R-rated. I don't know what they are, I mean I think the mainline X-Men movies have their own tone, which is a more operatic tone. It's more dramatic, it is more PG-13 in a way. 'X-Force' I could see being R-rated, and who knows?"

Domino, a member of the 'X-Men' offshoot X-Force, is also rumoured to be making an appearance in the upcoming Marvel Comics motion picture sequel.

What's more, Reynolds has also admitted making an X-Force film is his number one "priority".
