Filming took place in British Columbia for 80 days from a base at Vancouver’s Mammoth Studios.

Spending included around CA$1.5m on cast and crew accommodation, and more than CA$2m apiece on construction supplies and transportation respectively, according to figures from Twentieth Century Fox.

“When producers come here to film, they have access to incredible talent and crews, state-of-the-art studios, visual effects facilities and scenery that is unmatched,” said John Horgan, premier of British Columbia.

“Deadpool 2 not only brought Ryan Reynolds back home but spent over CA$100m in British Columbia and created thousands of jobs.”

The spending figure is nearly a threefold increase on the first Deadpool movie, which was made with a much smaller budget as the film was considered a risk for Twentieth Century Fox. In stunning defiance of expectations, the movie made more than $780m worldwide, making the sequel an easy decision.
