Ryan Reynolds Poses in Front of the X-Mansion in First DEADPOOL 2 Photo

Deadpool 2 has begun principal photography in Vancouver, and it appears that the first place that they’re going to be filming scenes is none other than the most iconic location in the entire Marvel Mutant franchise, the X-Mansion. Ryan Reynolds is celebrating the official start of production by posting a pic on Twitter of himself in his Wade Wilson costume in front of the iconic X-Men film location, which you can see down below.


So, does this mean that Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters will figure into Deadpool 2 in a more significant way, or will this be just like last time, where there are only the same two X-Men ever at home, Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead? I’d bet that it’s just going to be those two mutants again, if only for the sake of it being a running gag. But who knows? Despite his constant talk of Logan being his swan song to playing Charles Xavier, Patrick Stewart has said he’d love to play a role in a future Deadpool movie. I would certainly be a fun cameo.

The Vancouver location for the X-Mansion is actually one of many over the years. When people talk about the lack of continuity in the X-Men film franchise, almost no one ever brings up that the X-Mansion has been altered somewhat in just about every single movie in the franchise. The first X-Mansion was located in Ontario, and X-Men: First Class used a castle in the U.K.  X2, X-Men: The Last Stand, X-Men: Days of Future Past, X-Men: Apocalypse and the first Deadpool used maybe the most well known location, which was located at Hatley Castle, in Vancouver Island, British Columbia. It looks like Deadpool 2 is going back to the most iconic and used location.

Joining Ryan Reynolds and director David Leitch (John Wick) for the sequel are Josh Brolin as Cable, Jack Kesy (possibly as Black Tom), and Zazie Beetz as Domino. Also making a comeback from the first film are Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Stefan Kapicic as Colossus, and Karan Soni as everyone’s favorite taxi driver Dopinder.

Deadpool 2 hits theaters on June 1, 2018. Are you pumped? Let us know in comments.
