"Deadpool" - 'Monster Metropolis'

Sneak Peek Marvel Comics' "Deadpool" #28, written by Gerry Duggan and illustrated by Salva Espin, with covers by Reilly Brown and David Lopez, available March 1, 2017:

"...some couples hit a rough patch from time-to-time -- but only 'Deadpool' & 'Shiklah' get involved with a full scale monster invasion of 'Manhattan'. With 'Spider-Man' and the 'Mercs for Money' along for the ride.

"Deadpool's whirlwind romance with Shiklah was one of the most exciting times of his life. But that was then and this is now. The honeymoon is over, and reality has set in. Shiklah is a 'demon succubus' and 'Queen' of a monster kingdom hidden deep below Manhattan.

"And the problems between her and 'Wade' continue to pile up. Now, when an affront to Shiklah's people demands justice, a line will be crossed. As 'Monster Metropolis' declares war on the surface world, Deadpool will be faced with a decision. Does he choose the wife to whom he's pledged himself or the role he's been crafting for himself as a hero?..."

According to Fox co-chairman Stacey Snider, "Deadpool 2", has been greenlit by the studio, starring Ryan Reynolds reprising his role as "...the merc with a mouth..." alongside the promised live-action debut of Marvel Comics' 'Cable':

"...'Wade Wilson', a former mercenary, turned cheap prankster, is subjected to an experimental regenerative mutation to cure a terminal illness, giving him accelerated healing superpowers, but severely scarring his body.

"His prostitute girlfriend overlooks his appearance, but he still 'takes nothing seriously'..."

'Cable' aka 'Nathan Summers' is the adult son of 'Cyclops' aka 'Scott Summers' and 'Madelyne Pryor', a clone of 'Jean Grey' and the half brother of 'Rachel Summers', from a possible future timeline.

...having been transported as an infant to the future, where he grew into a warrior, before returning to the present.

The first "Deadpool" feature, Miller's feature directorial debut, was shot in Vancouver on a budget of $58 million, grossing over $757.3 million world-wide.
