Ryan Reynolds will return for a Deadpool sequel, 20th Century Fox confirmed during CinemaCon 2016, The Wrap reports.

Fox co-CEO Stacey Snider also confirmed that director Tim Miller would return along with the rest of the creative team, including writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.

Deadpool has grossed over $750 million worldwide and garnered heaps of praise from critics, making a sequel inevitable. Though even before the accolades and big box office numbers, the hyper-meta anti-hero himself promised a follow-up in a scene tacked on after the Deadpool credits.

In that same clip, Deadpool also joked that the sequel would feature Marvel mutant Cable, something Reese and Wernick all but confirmed during a recent interview with Hitfix.

“There’s a lot of fun in that he’s very serious and he does take on more serious weighty issues than Deadpool’s used to taking on, so I think there’s a juxtaposition there that can be fun,” Reese said. “We had a lot of fun with Colossus in the first movie, just by virtue of him being a foil to Deadpool, being a goody two-shoes and a straight shooter and Deadpool being irreverent. And I think Cable offers us the opportunity to provide another really cool, different foil for Deadpool.”

Along with Deadpool 2, Reynolds will star in another upcoming Reese and Wernick-penned movie, Life. The sci-fi thriller co-stars Jake Gyllenhaal and will be directed by Daniel Espinosa.
