Production on Deadpool 2 is supposed to begin this summer for a release on 2018, but we’re still waiting for some of the major pieces of the sequel to fall into place, or at least be announced by 20th Century Fox and Ryan Reynolds.
Atlanta star Zazie Beetz was recently confirmed to play Domino, a mutant mercenary and a member of X-Force, the mutant crew who takes on missions of their own with a more militant and aggressive approach towards their enemies. However, fans are still eagerly waiting to see who will play the time traveling X-Force leader known as Cable, and it sounds like we’ll find out soon.

And now, out of the mist, someone new has arrived to steer the X-Force movie toward port: Joe Carnahan.
