Deadpool 2 filming has been underway for a couple months now, and coverage for the flick certainly seems to be on the rise. In true viral form, Ryan Reynolds — as well as actors Zazie Beetz and Josh Brolin — have recently taken to social media to show off the looks of fan favorites Domino and Cable. There have also been a series of set photos that have been making the rounds online, but in a new video from news station Global BC in Vancouver, we have our best look yet.
In the footage, we get some glimpses of Cable stuntman making a huge leap onto a platform (not sure what they plan on turning that platform into in post). We get one good shot of him at the beginning, and one near the end, after which we see Cable crawl around a bit on the platform. We also get to see. a shot of Deadpool himself — though nothing to write home about, as we’ve seen him plenty before.
The video itself discusses the economic impact a production like Deadpool 2 has on the citizens of Vancouver, both positive and negative. On the downside, it disrupts local businesses, who rely on the patronage of those around. However, when a film like Deadpool 2 hits, the customers they rely on to keep the lights on aren’t allowed to go in, for safety or secrecy reasons, we assume.
Of course, the big plus side is the fact that with the last Deadpool film, they spent $40 million in Vancouver in just 58 days, $19 million of which went to wages to Vancouver locals (for crew, we assume). The budget for Deadpool 2 isn’t clear right now, but it’d be fair to assume that it’s at least a tad bigger than that of Deadpool, meaning that they’re likely injecting at least as much into the Vancouver economy as last time, which is always a good thing.
Deadpool 2 hits theaters on June 1, 2018.
