Will Handbrake use Metal2 API in the future, for even faster encoding?

Nope. Everyone has moved away from GPU encoders and onto dedicated hardware encoder ASICs like QuickSync, VCE and NVENC.
We have a patch for Intel QuickSync via the Apple VideoToolbox API, but unfortunately, the Apple APU cripples it's capabilities so we've not decided if we are going to include it or not.
