For Deadpool 2, Ryan Reynolds and the writing team have been "working hard on the script," Kinberg said. The movie is being directed by David Leitch (John Wick), who takes over for the first movie's director, Tim Miller.

"We have a really good script for that movie, and we're into the casting process right now for some of the new characters," he explained. "There aren't a lot of new characters, but there are some big ones, as I'm sure you can imagine. And the plan would be to shoot that movie this year as well and have it come out next year.

"So potentially next year you will have a surfeit of X-Men and X-Men-related movies in theaters."
