Deadpool 2 is set to hit cinemas a whole TWO WEEKS earlier than planned.

Ryan Reynolds has confirmed the exciting news with a tweet of a new movie still and the all important words: May 18.

20th Century Fox are shifting things around, bringing Deadpool 2 forward from June 1, but pushing back The New Mutants – by a year.

The movie will now be released on 22 February 2019 in stead of April 13 2018, reportedly so the two movies don’t overlap on theatrical runs.

Gambit is also being pushed back, moving from 14 February 2019 to 7 June 2019.

Deadpool 2 was recently hit with controversy after it was announced TJ Miller would not be replaced in the movie despite sexual harassment allegations.

With Deadpool 2 entering post-production, it was rumoured that director David Leitch may take the decision to re-shoot the scenes starring Miller and replace him, as Ridley Scott did with Kevin Spacey in All The Money In The World.

However, one of the film’s producers Lauren Shuler Donner said Miller would not be replaced. Asked about the prospect during an interview with Rotten Tomatoes, she said: ‘We’re in the final editing. I don’t think so.’

This indicates that she and her fellow producers were happy to leave the decision up to Disney and Fox following the conclusion of the deal the studios are striking.
