Deadpool 2, the highly anticipated sequel to the 2016 box office hit, has officially finished filming. After a directorial swap of Tim Miller for David Leitch last year, and the tragic news of stunt-woman Joi "S.J." Harris' unexpected death on set in August, news surrounding Deadpool's filming has been incredibly turbulent.
After the film's writer Rhet Reese, announced that Deadpool had entered its post-production stage on Twitter on Saturday (Oct. 14), Ryan Reynolds, the star and producer of the movie, decided to chime in.
Reynolds thanked everyone who had a hand in bringing Deadpool 2 to fruition, giving a special shout out to the film's director David Leitch. Reynolds wrote, “That’s a wrap on DEADPOOL 2: A SONG OF FIRE AND ICE! Thank you to our beloved Captain, Mr. [director David Leitch]...words are too clumsy to properly acknowledge your giant heart and talent."
He went on to include, "I love my hometown of Vancouver and our obscenely gifted crew. From our PA’s, (who are first in and last out) to our set decorators and prop department, riddling this film with Easter Eggs in almost every scene... Thank you. I already miss being on set. Which is why I’ve decided to continue shooting the film in my underwear from Josh Brolin’s well appointed living room. #MaximumEffort”
The 40-year-old actor gave fans a mini sneak peak into some of Deadpool 2's content, noting how the set decorators riddled scenes with Easter Eggs. Surely the star is referring to the film's unexpected surprises, and not actual Easter eggs, at least we hope not.
Deadpool 2 is set to hit theaters on June 1, 2018. You can catch the movie trailer below.
