Deadpool 2 has a new cast member, and, embracing the tenets of entertainment journalism like no one else, star Ryan Reynolds has revealed the news on Instagram:
That’s Julian Dennison getting a piggyback ride from the Merc with a Mouth, the star of Taika Waititi’s 2016 film Hunt for the Wilderpeople. No word on who the 14-year-old Dennison will be playing in the Deadpool sequel, but we can probably expect Reynolds to let us know via hilarious Instagram post at some point in the near future.
Deadpool 2 is expected to be released on June 1, 2018, and features Reynolds reprising his role from the first film along with returning cast members Morena Baccarin, T. J. Miller, Leslie Uggams, Brianna Hildebrand, and Stefan Kapičić. Zazie Beetz joins the sequel as Domino and Josh Brolin as Cable for the movie, directed by David Leitch.
