FILM 1782: DEADPOOL 2
TRIVIA: The sequel was announced 3 days before the release of Deadpool (2016).
Ryan Reynolds personally offered Rob Delaney the role of Peter after seeing him in Catastrophe (2015).
In one scene, Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) refers to Cable (Josh Brolin) as One Eyed Willy; 'bring it on, One Eyed Willy'. One Eyed Willy was the pirate character in The Goonies (1985) starring Josh Brolin.
It was announced in October 2016 that Tim Miller would not be returning as director for this sequel. He decided not to return due to creative differences with lead actor Ryan Reynolds during pre-production. Miller later stated that he left the sequel because he "didn't want to make some stylized movie that was 3 times the budget", and wished to create the same kind of film that made the first one a success.
Brad Pitt met with the director to discuss the part of Cable, but couldn't commit due to scheduling conflicts.
In the trailer, Deadpool remarks about the effects on Cable's arm not being done, saying it's "not as difficult as removing a mustache." This is a reference to how Justice League(2017) had to remove Henry Cavill's moustache for re-shoots.
