Earlier today, CBR reported that Deadpool 2 is currently filming scenes at Hatley Castle in Victoria, British Columbia, under the production name “Daisy” and that yellow cab — possibly the same one driven by Dopinder in the first film — was spotted on set. Now, Ryan Reynolds, who stars as the film’s titular character, has released a set photo for the upcoming movie on his Twitter.
The image shows the Merc with a Mouth reclining outside of the castle, which serves as a stand-in for Professor Xavier’s X-Mansion. In the tweet, Reynolds wrote, “Dropped by the X-Mansion. Big f&*%^ surprise. No one’s home.”

The tweet alludes to the lack of X-Men appearing in the first film. Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead, who are played by Stefan Kapicic and Brianna Hildebrand respectively, were the only proper members of the team to appear in the first film. They’re slated to return for the sequel, though there’s no word yet on whether any other X-Men will appear.
There isn’t much information on Deadpool 2’s plot as of yet. However, we do know that the film is set to feature the debut of Zazie Beetz as Domino and Josh Brolin as Cable. Both of those characters have been members of X-Force, with which Deadpool has had a close association. Jack Kesy is signed on to play a villain, who many suspect is Black Tom Cassidy — though it’s unknown whether or not he’ll be the film’s primary villain.
Arriving in theaters June 1, 2018, Deadpool 2 will see the return of Ryan Reynolds, T.J. Miller, Brianna Hildebrand and Karan Soni, along with newcomer Zazie Beetz as Domino and Josh Brolin as Cable. The film is directed by John Wick’s David Leitch.
