Summer 2018 can’t come soon enough.

Anticipation for “Deadpool 2” has been running high ever since we saw the first teaser and found out Josh Brolin would be playing Cable. We’ve been patiently waiting for word on a release date, and now we finally have one. 

Fox announced Saturday that the sequel, starring Ryan Reynolds as our wise-cracking hero, will hit theaters June 1, 2018, according to The Hollywood Reporter. We. Can’t. Wait.  

This weekend, Fox also announced official release dates for the four upcoming “Avatar” sequels, the first of which is set to come out in December 2020. The sequels have been delayed on multiple occasions, but according to a post on the film’s Facebook page, the team is starting production

But that’s not all! Fox also dated two other movies, including “New Mutants,” which will hit theaters April 13, 2018, and “X-Men: Dark Phoenix,” which will be out Nov. 2, 2018.

Next year is going to be a big one for superhero movies. In the meantime, here’s the “Deadpool 2” teaser, complete with a shot of Reynolds’ bare butt.
