“Deadpool 2” screenplay writer Rhett Reese and lead actor Ryan Reynolds have confirmed that filming has wrapped for the action-comedy flick. Meanwhile, Josh Brolin (Cable) appeared in a new interview and expressed his willingness to play the comic book character in more films.

“That’s a wrap! ‘Deadpool 2’ is in the can,” Reese announced on Twitter (see below). Reynolds confirmed the news in his post on Instagram (see below). The actor thanked all the members of the cast and crew, especially director David Leitch.

Reynolds also jokingly said that the subtitle of the film is “A Song of Fire and Ice.” The producers are yet to announce the actual title of the highly anticipated sequel.

“I already miss being on set. Which is why I’ve decided to continue shooting the film in my underwear from Josh Brolin’s well appointed living room,” Reynolds wrote on his post. Brolin has joined the cast members to play the important role of Cable, the time-travelling son of X-Men team member Cyclops.

The introduction of Cable opens the door for Brolin to play the role in the “X-Men” films and other related projects. In an interview with Collider, the actor expressed his willingness to continue.

Brolin said he had a lot of fun playing Cable, and that he's willing to get back to that “comedic-community.” So if fans take a liking to him in “Deadpool 2,” which seems very likely, judging by the response for the film so far, then Brolin might play the role more often in the future. This, especially since the character is connected to different groups of superheroes in the comics that can be brought to life on screen.

 

That’s a wrap on DEADPOOL 2: A SONG OF FIRE AND ICE! Thank you to our beloved Captain, Mr. @davidmleitch... words are too clumsy to properly acknowledge your giant heart and talent. I love my hometown of Vancouver and our obscenely gifted crew. From our PA’s, (who are first in and last out) to our set decorators and prop department, riddling this film with Easter Eggs in almost every scene... Thank you. I already miss being on set. Which is why I’ve decided to continue shooting the film in my underwear from Josh Brolin’s well appointed living room. #MaximumEffort
