The Merc with a Mouth will be returning to the big screen next summer in Deadpool 2, starring Ryan Reynolds once again as Wade Wilson. Both new and old cast members will be joining the next Deadpool installment which is set to be directed by David Leitch. Two of the returning cast members are T.J. Miller and Karan Soni as Weasel and Dopinder respectively. While the two characters didn’t really share any screentime together in the first film, it looks like the sequel might be bringing them together.
In a recent interview with Screen Rant, Miller revealed that the creative team behind Deadpool 2 revealed to him that they were discussing a potential story arc between Weasel and Dopinder for the upcoming sequel. While Miller didn’t reveal any specific details about what their storyline could be about, he isn’t 100% certain that they will actually include it, but definitely seems hopeful that they will keep it in.
“We’re shooting in August and September and it’s going to be even more Weaselicious. … The cab driver, Karan Soni, and Weasel have a pretty funny storyline, which I’m not positive is going to be in [the movie], but they were talking about it and it was really making me laugh. And I like him, I did Office Christmas Party with him, and he’s very funny, very quick and so — because we didn’t cross paths in the original film. … So y’know [fans can expect] stuff like that. I think they’re really building out the world and deciding kind of what’s next.”
David Leitch’s Deadpool 2, starring Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson, Zazie Beetz as Domino, Josh Brolin as Cable, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Stefan Kapicic as Colossus, T.J. Miller as Weasel, Karan Soni as Dopinder, Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Jack Kesy and Shioli Kutsuna, is slated to come out on June 1, 2018.

8 X-Men Characters Who Deserve Their Own Movie
So it’s probably safe to assume everyone here has seen Logan? Well, based on how well it did in the box-office I think Fox is taking notes. Now that they have both Deadpool and Logan under their belts, I’m sure they will be bringing more X-Men characters to the big-screen as soon as possible.
There are so many great X-Men arcs to choose from, but I think focusing on personal stories and fewer characters is a way to ensure the movie connects with an audience. Mutants were originally composed as a metaphor for the Civil Rights movement, and that issue is still very much so alive in our society. I’m not saying every movie needs to be political, but they all have the potential to be about so much more than destruction and boss battles. Fox focus on smaller, personal stories that show mutants in a different light. Sure they can kick ass, but let’s make sure they always feel like real people, as Logan did.
Did I miss your favorite character? Well, let me know in the comment section why they should be included! So hit Next to see the eight mutants I think Fox should bring to the big-screen next!
