Deadpool 2 is moving along quite nicely. After John Wick director David Leitch took over the project last November, we got a glimpse of his vision via a teaser trailer screened prior to showings of Logan. Then, Atlanta actress Zazie Beetz was cast as Domino and Josh Brolin signed on to play Cable. Today, 20th Century Fox followed up with another big announcement. The sequel will hit theaters beginning June 1st, 2018.
