On the heels of announcing Josh Brolin as the sequel’s villain Cable, Fox has now announced the sequel’s release date.

20th Century Fox has announced today that ‘Deadpool 2’ will debut in cinemas on June 1st, 2018.

Moving away from the first film’s February Valentine’s Day release, Fox is moving the sequel to the summer slot with much more fierce competitors as it’s slotted between the untitled Han Solo ‘Star Wars’ movie and a Bumblebee ‘Transformers’ spin-off.

The first ‘Deadpool’ was a smash hit, grossing more than $780 million worldwide to become the highest grossing film in the ‘X-Men’ franchise.
