From VancouverFilm.Net, take a look @ actor Ryan Reynolds lounging in front of the 'X-Mansion', on the Vancouver set of director David Leitch's "Deadpool 2", based on the Marvel Comics superhero, now shooting principal photography, co-starring Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, Brianna Hildebrand, Leslie Uggams, Karan Soni and Stefan Kapičić, Josh Brolin, Zazie Beetz, Jack Kesy, and Shioli Kutsuna:
April 6, 2016 actor Ryan Reynolds officially signed on for the sequel.
During the post-credit scene in the first "Deadpool" movie, Deadpool tells the audience that 'Cable' will be in the sequel. Other characters confirmed to appear include 'Neena Thurman'/Domino', 'Colossus', 'Dopiner' and 'Negasonic Teenage Warhead'.
The first "Deadpool" feature follows former 'Special Forces' operative turned mercenary, cheap prankster...
'Wade Wilson', who after being subjected to a rogue experiment acquires accelerated healing powers, then adopts the alter ego 'Deadpool'.
Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
In addition to her marksmanship and hand-to-hand skills, Domino possesses mutant powers and has been the lover of 'Cable', the mutant son of former 'X-Men' leader 'Cyclops'.
"Domino has the ability to subconsciously and psionically initiate random telekinetic acts that affect probability in her favor by making improbable (but not impossible) things occur within her line of sight...
"...thus causing her to have 'good luck' and her opponents to have 'bad luck'.
"This 'probability field' phenomenon can be anything from an enemy's equipment failure to hitting just the right switch with a stray shot to shut down an overloading nuclear reactor.
"But the full extent of her powers is still unknown..."

If this isn’t a tease for a Firefly reunion, then series star Nathan Fillion may be the 2017’s biggest troll. A few days ago, the actor shared a photo on his Instagram page… nothing out of the ordinary there, right? It’s a photo of Fillion, and fellow Firefly alums Morena Baccarin, and Alan Tudyk. Again: Nothing out of the ordinary. Old friends have lunch all the time. However, it’s the caption that truly makes one wonder what Mr. Fillion is getting at exactly…
What do we want to believe you talked about, Nathan Fillion? Is that even a question?
Fans cried afoul when Firefly was cancelled back in 2003, and have prayed for a continuation of the series ever since. Fans got their wish, in a way, with the movie Serenity back in 2005, but it still left so many questions unanswered. The world that Mal Reynolds inhabited was a vast one, with seemingly endless stories to tell. Firefly was too interesting for one season, and a single movie. Let’s hope this message is more than simple trolling on Fillion’s part. However, given Nathan Fillion’s reputation as a social media comedian, it would be best to keep your enthusiasm in check.

Set outside the Hatley Castle in Vancouver, which has been home to the X-Men throughout the franchise, in true Deadpool style Reynolds jokingly said while taking a bit of a rest “Dropped by The X-Mansion….” In a separate post on his Instagram he posted the same image but with the comment “Dropped by X-Mansion. Looked closely for Beast’s lawn bombs before taking well-deserved nap.”

According to Cbr, filming on Deadpool 2 is currently underway in Victoria, British Columbia, with the production reportedly filming scenes at Hatley Castle, which has served as a stand-in for the X-Mansion in last year’s Deadpool, along with X2: X-Men United and X-Men: The Last Stand.
The site reports that Ryan Reynolds has been spotted on set, along with a yellow cab, suggesting that Karan Soni’s Dopinder will feature in the scenes. It’s also said that the production is using the interior of the castle, whereas the first movie only gave us a brief glimpse at the X-Mansion’s doorway.
Update: Reynolds has now posted the following image to Twitter, complete with the caption: “Dropped by the X-Mansion. Big fucking suprise. No one’s home”:

Ryan Reynolds loves to tease!
The 40-year-old actor riled up fans with the first image from Deadpool 2 on Saturday.
"Dropped by the X-Mansion. Big f**king surprise. No one's home," Reynolds captioned the snap of the masked mercenary relaxing in front of the famous estate from the X-Men films.
Deadpool first visited the mansion in the 2016 film while recruiting Negasonic Teenage Warhead and Colossus for his final battle against Ajax and Angel Dust.
While Reynolds appears to have easily slipped back into character, Josh Brolin has been hitting the gym in preparation for his role as Cable in the upcoming movie -- and earning compliments from another Marvel superhero, Guardian's of the Galaxy's Dave Bautista.

Cable and Domino are, without question, the two headline-worthy additions to David Leitch’s anti-hero sequel, Deadpool 2, and the former in particular has generated a metric ton of buzz among the comic book community ever since the Merc With a Mouth first teased the advent of Wade Wilson’s long-time nemesis last year.
In typically flippant fashion, Ryan Reynolds’ foul-mouthed protagonist rhymed off a series of big names including Mel Gibson, Dolph Lundgren, and, er, Keira Knightley. But it turns out the Powers That Be have selected Josh Brolin (Avengers: Infinity War) to play the time-travelling mercenary known as Nathan Summers. Brolin beat out a whole host of actors to land the coveted gig, too, after reports claimed that Pierce Brosnan and Stephen Lang were both in contention at one point or another.
Alas, now that Fox and director David Leitch have made their decision, fans can begin to »

Another week, another Deadpool 2 casting announcement! This time we receive news of Japanese actress Shioli Kutsuna joining the movie in what is described by Deadline as a “key role”. Kutsuna is known for several indie films including The Outsider with Jared Leto, and most recently Oh Lucy! opposite Josh Hartnett, which recently played at the Cannes Film Festival.
While there is no news as to who she is playing, that hasn’t stopped people from guessing. The internet is already speculating the actress could be playing Psylocke, and why not? She seems like a perfect fit for the role. However, as we know, Olivia Munn has already played the role in X-Men: Apocalypse. That being said, it certainly wouldn’t be the first time that Fox recast the role, as Mei Melancon portrayed the character in X-Men: The Last Stand.

As production for Deadpool 2 gears up, it won’t be long until we get a better glimpse of Josh Brolin’s Cable. However, that doesn’t mean the actor isn’t going to do some teasing of his own. Brolin has already done a bit of teasing with a beefcake gym photo a couple of months back, as well as a pre-production photo, and now he’s (perhaps indirectly) revealed his new haircut for Cable. Posted to Instagram, one will notice the hair style is very similar to that of the time-travelling mercenary.

One could argue that it’s not a reveal at all, that it’s a new haircut: nothing more, but what is the fun in that? Also, when are these things ever a coincidence in Hollywood? It would even be reasonable to assume the black, »

Specifically, the outlet has uncovered a handful of alleged audition tapes for David Leitch’s sequel – audition tapes that point to the addition of a brand new mutant. Up until now, Deadpool 2 has welcomed Zazie Beetz and Josh Brolin on board to play Domino and Cable, respectively, but it seems the 2018 follow-up still has room in its ranks for one last-minute casting coup before filming kicks off in Vancouver later this month.
Per Omega Underground, it’s now been claimed that Killian Scott and British actor Charley Palmer Rothwell are both testing for the role of “Mike.” Exactly who “Mike” is and how he factors into Deadpool 2 is up for question, but it’s worth keeping »

Next year will see a major addition to the X-Men movie franchise as Josh Brolin takes on the role of Nathan Summers, a.k.a. Cable, in the hotly-anticipated sequel Deadpool 2, and speaking to Screen Rant, producer Hutch Parker has discussed the introduction of the time-travelling mutant, and what he will bring to the table for the series going forward.
“It just opens a whole series of doors,” said Parker. “I think that was part of what was so exciting of adding him to the mix is, not only what he brings as a character – and I think what I think Brolin will bring to the part, which I think was just brilliant casting – but it expands the landscape again and gives us more flexibility and opportunity which is one of the ways we can keep this franchise feeling vibrant and exciting and fresh – by introducing elements that are exciting and dynamic and different. »

The Court -- Wow, the acting leader of The Court doesn’t deal well with those who fail him. At the beginning of the episode he orders the Talons to slit the throats of the current Court members due to killing Thomas and Martha Wayne in his absence. Why does he care so much about the Wayne’s, and why would he destroy his own Court? The answer is that he never really served The Court, but the actual group he is affiliated with (The League of Assassins?) used them for their overall goal. »
