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.
