Hatley Castle was originally constructed in 1908 for James Dunsmuir, lieutenant governor of British Columbia. The forty room mansion was built in the Scottish baronial style by architect Samuel Maclure. When it was given to the government in 1940, it was used as a naval college until 1994 when it was converted into the Royal Roads University.
The castle is the stand-in for Professor Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters and has been used in other shows like Smallville, Arrow, X2, and X-Men: The Last Stand.
The second Deadpool film’s release date is set to be in 2018 with characters like Cable and Domino set to make their first on-screen debut.
