No details have been given for the character Dennison will play.

"Never in my wilderpeoplest dreams would I have imagined this picture existing. But.... Yessss [sic]," Waititi tweeted on Thursday.

Deadpool 2 is rumoured to be released in June next year.

Dennison starred in Hunt For the Wilderpeople which was in the running for an Oscar last year, and made $23.2 million at the US box office.
