“She was kindness itself to everybody and everything around her–people, animals, everything. She just didn’t have a bad bone in her body. She was a unique person. It’s difficult to describe her character. She was just utterly good, the kindest human being I’ve ever met, with an extreme patience. To live with me was proof of her patience, because to be near me must be an ordeal. She never had a bad temper, she was never moody. She enjoyed being a wife. The press and the public knew of her physical beauty, but she also had a beautiful soul, and this is something that only her friends knew about.”
–Roman Polanski, 1971
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 rumored 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.”
