Below we’ll highlight some of the Deadpool 2 filming locations and share the trailer that was released earlier this week.
After filming the original in the Vancouver area back in 2015, Marvel’s over-the-top antihero franchise starring Ryan Reynolds returned to the area for the Deadpool 2 from June 26th to October 13th, 2017 and it premieres on May 18th, 2018. The strange and cryptic official synopsis shared by Fox reads as follows: “After surviving a near-fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.”
In addition to the other returning cast, Deadpool 2 introduces the Nathan Summers/Cable character from the comics, portrayed by Josh Brolin (No Country For Old Men). The latest trailer below focuses heavily on Cable, but doesn’t miss out on the opportunity to include some bizarre content from the merc with a mouth himself.

Deadpool 2 Official Trailer
Although a lot of the new Deadpool 2 filming locations in the trailer are non-descript, you can clearly see downtown Vancouver’s Burrard and West Hastings intersection featured. The DMC train, which Vancouver residents know all too well at this point, is seen charging through the intersection and colliding with another vehicle as Josh Brolin’s Cable springs overtop.
You can also see a glimpse of the scene that was filmed under the North end of the Granville Bridge with Julian Dennison flipping the finger.
The intersection of West Georgia and Thurlow Streets makes an appearance as Deadpool himself mounts the hood of one of the DMC vehicles.
Franchise newcomer Zazie Beetz makes a couple of appearances as Domino at Coquitlam’s defunct mental institution turned filming hotspot, Riverview Hospital, including this one out front.
Deadpool clobbering someone outside of Riverview Hospital as well.
The production spent a significant amount of time there, so expect to see a lot more of it when Deadpool 2 hits theatres on May 18th.
