Following Deadpool’s record-breaking success, fans are growing increasingly excited about the sequel despite very little being known about the follow-up.

Leading actor Ryan Reynolds has, of course, been feeding expectations, teasing numerous character appearances and promising another hilarious adventure.

Two of the characters confirmed to appear in the upcoming film are Cable and Domino, the former being teased in Deadpool’s post-credit sequence.

CBR is reporting that ex-James Bond actor Pierce Brosnan is being eyed for the role of Cable, while Scandal’s Kerry Washington is wanted for Domino.

Washington last appeared on the big screen alongside Craig Robinson in Peeples in 2013, following a role in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained.

Brosnan has been rumoured to be in the pipeline since an image of himself, Hugh Jackman, and Reynolds was shared online.

In a recent interview, Deadpool 2 director David Leitch - who also worked on John Wick - said the DNA of the first film will remain intact.

“It’s going to be fun to spin out the world a little bit and expand it,” he told an interviewer. “But we want to stay true to that, the little superhero movie that could. It is the fun irreverent movie.”

Deadpool 2 is set for release on 2 March 2018.
