'Deadpool 2'

"Deadpool 2," the sequel to the highest-grossing R-rated movie of-all-time, will once again feature Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds as the wise-cracking "merc with a mouth." Directed by American filmmaker David Leitch, the film's story is as-yet unknown, but will feature Marvel mutants such as Cable, Domino, and Black Tom Cassidy.

According to Reynolds, one of the biggest goals for making "Deadpool 2" was to keep the film a small-budget affair and focused on the hilarity of character.

"We have to resist the temptation to make it bigger in scale and scope, which is normally what you do when you have a surprise hit movie," he said. "But actually stay true to the tenets of it’s the tone and the style and the humor that make it so special."

We'll see if Reynolds can once again shake and crack up the Marvel universe when "Deadpool 2" arrives in theaters on June 1, 2018.
