During a panel at CinemaCon today, 20th Century Fox exec Stacey Snider confirmed that Ryan Reynolds and director Tim Miller would both be returning for Deadpool's upcoming sequel. When news of the sequel arrived just after Deadpool was released earlier this year, it already seemed very likely that Reynolds and Miller would come back, but now it's officially official. Snider also said that in addition to Miller, the entire creative team would be returning.
Deadpool's dick-joke-heavy comedic style ended up being more endearing than many expected it to be, and became the highest-grossing R-rated movie ever, earning more than $757 million worldwide. The studio is undoubtedly hoping to replicate that success by changing as little as possible.
