And having picked up a second role with the studio, his soon-to-be co-star Ryan has joked about the unusual scenario on Twitter.

The 40-year-old star quipped: "The f**k, Fox! You can't play 2 characters in the same universe!! Josh Brolin was in Sicario and I was in Sabrina The Teenage Witch. (sic)"

Despite the success of the first 'Deadpool' movie in 2016, the sequel has experienced a number of problems, one of which has included Tim Miller leaving his job as the director.

Ryan - whose performance in the original movie was widely praised - previously admitted he was disappointed to see Tim leave the franchise.

He said: "All I can really add is that I'm sad to see him off the film.Tim's brilliant and nobody worked harder on 'Deadpool' than he did."

Tim has subsequently been replaced by David Leitch and 'Deadpool 2' is scheduled for release in 2018.
