Hello friends!

It's a joyous day because production on Deadpool 2 is officially underway. Plus, courtesy of the Merc with a Mouth himself it looks like they're starting things off with a return to a very familiar location.

The man behind the mask, Ryan Reynolds, has taken to his social media accounts to give us the first behind the scenes peek at the start of production on the highly anticipated sequel and it features our beloved Wade Wilson suited up and having a bit of a lie down in front of Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters. 

Dropped by X-Mansion. Looked closely for Beast's lawn bombs before taking well deserved nap.

Ah, good ole Double R. Is anyone else beyond excited for this movie? Like Cartman frozen in ice excited. Yes? Deadpool 2 smashes its way into theaters June 1, 2018.
