Deadpool is kid-friendly this time

Well, no he isn’t. But the first photos to emerge show the Merc with a Mouth crashing a kid’s birthday party, as one would expect of him.

Deadpool 2 is set to release on June 1, 2018. Reynolds returns as Deadpool, and will be joined by Josh Brolin as Cable and Zazie Beetz as Domino. David Leitch (John Wick) is directing. In addition to the movie, an FXX animated series is on the way, with actor Donald Glover producing.
