20th Century Fox is still referring to Deadpool 2 as The Untitled Deadpool Sequel. Could this be the case or is Fox just trolling us, Deadpool style?
This is a bit mad. We’ve been calling the Deadpool sequel Deadpool 2 for quite some time now, but it turns out that it might not even be the film’s actual title. On the film’s official website and the hordes of press emails being sent around, the film is being referred to as “The Untitled Deadpool Sequel”. It seems very late to still be calling the movie “untitled” and we’ve all been calling it Deadpool 2 for a while. That said, 20th Century Fox did wait until rather late to confirm that this year’s Wolverine movie would be called Logan, so this isn’t something we haven’t seen before from the studio.
Deadpool is the most meta superhero in the world and it would be very ‘Deadpool’ not to name the movie until the very last minute and then come up with some ridiculous title. However, as far as promoting the movie is concerned, Fox needs to come up with an official title soon. I do wonder whether they’ll actually go for “The Untitled Deadpool Sequel” as the film’s official title. That would be such a ‘Deadpool’ thing to do and would put a smile on my face.
Fox dropped Deadpool 2’s (I’m still going with it for the time being) teaser today, which is well worth watching. They also premiered the film’s poster in this month’s issue of Good Housekeeping (of course), in which he can be seen holding a Thanks Giving turkey surrounded by his comic book character buddies, including Josh Brolin’s Cable and a framed portrait of Marvel legend, Stan Lee.
Deadpool 2 stars Ryan Reynolds and Brolin alongside Morena Baccarin, T. J. Miller, Leslie Uggams, Brianna Hildebrand, Stefan Kapičić and Zazie Beetz. The film is being helmed by John Wick and Atomic Blonde’s director, David Leitch. It’ll come to UK cinemas on June 1st, 2018.
