15 Vancouver Filming Locations Used in Deadpool

Remember when Deadpool closed down the Georgia Viaduct for a couple weeks of filming? The 2016 blockbuster box-office success and highest-grossing R-rated movie filmed at North Shore Studios in North Vancouver and around town during the Spring of 2015. The production created thousands of jobs during production and pumped over $40 million into the local British Columbia economy.
