Deadpool 2 is in the pipeline, and the whole team from the first movie will participate in delivering the sequel, according to 20th Century Fox.

Deadpool screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are on board, and so are director Tim Miller and star Ryan Reynolds, who keeps the main role in the superhero movie.

The studio did not announce any official release date.

The follow-up to one of this year's most successful, hilarious R-Rated films was recently announced during the CinemaCon event in Las Vegas. To the fans' excitement, Fox was not the only studio who unveiled its future plans.

Sony Pictures said that the upcoming Spider-Man movie will be called Spider-Man: Homecoming, and it will sport a new logo.

Universal Pictures let everyone know that Benedict Cumberbatch (who masterfully portrayed Sherlock in a short TV series) signed up to lend his voice to The Grinch in an animated remake of How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

As a reminder, Deadpool ranks first in an all-time top of R-rated movies, based on opening weekend sales. Should the snarky superhero's popularity keep growing, the title has a chance to gain the title of highest-grossing R-rated movie of all time at a global scale.

It should also be mentioned that the film managed to be the highest-grossing title of all X-Men franchises that were released until now. Keep in mind that the comparison is made between Deadpool and other films part of the X-Men film franchise. Films based solely on Marvel characters or generic superhero films are not part of the discussion.

We know that Deadpool 2 will feature Reynolds as the sly-mouthed protagonist, but the details end there. The studio is keeping mum about any developments of the new installment. Those who watched the first movie in the franchise until post-credits saw a scene that hints at a new character appearing in the sequel. If it proves true, fans will meet Deadpool's frenemy from the Marvel universe, the time-traveling Cable.

The first movie in the franchise still scores high in cinemas worldwide, but fans who want to geek out by dissecting the film scene after scene can do so next month.

On May 10, Deadpool lands on DVD and Blu-ray format in a movie shop near you.
