Actor Ryan Reynolds has officially confirmed that a Deadpool 3 film is currently in development at Marvel Studios. Of course, it was pretty obvious that The Merc With The Mouth would be the only X-Men character who wouldn’t be rebooted after Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox. Now, it’s officially happening and the best part is that they might actually keep the R-rating.
The first Deadpool films were amongst the highest-grossing superhero films for Fox, even topping the X-Men franchise films and Hugh Jackman’s Logan. It would make sense for the House of Mouse to keep things as they were and continue the cash stream. Besides, who could possibly do a better job than Ryan Reynolds? He was born to play Deadpool.
“Yeah we’re working on it right now with the whole team. We’re over at Marvel now, which is like the big leagues all of a sudden. It’s kinda crazy. So yeah, we’re working on it,” Reynolds revealed during his appearance on Live With Ryan and Kelly.
While we still don’t know when Deadpool 3 will hit the big screen, or any of the specifics for that matter, we do know that the originally planned X-force spin-off has been shelved and we do know that Wade Wilson will be back very soon.
Perhaps we’ll finally get the Spider-Man/Deadpool film comic book fans have been wishing for. Anything is possible.
