Surprise. Deadpool dropped by unannounced at the X-Men Mansion in Victoria. Production on the Deadpool sequel isn’t expected to start until June 26th in Vancouver so it was a surprise to find out who was shooting Friday at Hatley Castle — which played the Xavier Institute in earlier films.

Crew filming Deadpool.
Christina Hayes had the scoop.
CTV Vancouver Island was on the scene too. See news item.
Who’s in the sequel?
The Deadpool 2 teaser at Logan screenings revealed Nathan Summers was coming. Summers is Cable, who’s a member of X-Force, along with Domino.
Josh Brolin is Nathan Summers aka Cable. The Merc with a Mouth teams up with the grumpy, time-travelling son of Cycops.
The fuck, Fox! You can’t play 2 characters in the same universe!! Josh Brolin was in Sicario and I was in Sabrina The Teenage Witch. pic.twitter.com/AQCRp1aWKg

Brolin is working out as prep for Cable.
Quietly, the “Team” is killing it. It takes a small village: @justindlovato at @iambuilt, Jonathon Phillips @hbmaxmuscle, @goldsgym and some discipline. Just saw @davebautista at the gym and he said: “What the f*ck happened to you?!” Haha. Best compliment ever. Totally clean: no sugar, no breads, no pastas, no drugs, none of it. Fish, rice, eggs, veggies, water, one @bulletproof or @cavemancoffeeco in the morning. I’m almost 50. It’s a different time: our access along with some big picture discipline results in always surprising milestones. Get on the train. #wedontfuckaround. #itaintthathard #startslowandlight @weprevail #ryanreynoldsismybitch
Thought you might like some updated training shots from #deadpool2 Check out @joshbrolin on the left… Getting RIPPED. Soon he’ll step deep into the soul of CABLE. On the right, you can see me doing some light flexing while being silly in my dressing room. I have a long way to go still. PRO TIP: “Leg Day” is important. But “Smile Day” is essential.
Zazie Beetz is Domino.
