We’ve been waiting for this bit of news for what seems like ages, but it’s finally been confirmed by Ryan Reynolds that Deadpool 3 is in development over at Marvel Studios.
The future of Deadpool 3 has been in a slight state of flux over the last few months. We haven’t been sure whether it would happen or not, despite the likes of Reynolds and Deadpool writers Reese and Wernick saying that it was going to happen.
However, nothing official had been confirmed, until now that is, and it was Ryan Reynolds who came out and officially revealed that Deadpool 3 was now in development over at Marvel Studios.
The reason why we weren’t so sure whether Deadpool 3 would get made or not was down to the fact that 20th Century Fox has been acquired by Disney and they don’t tend to make R-rated movies.
Yet, it seems as though the House of Mouse is going to be changing that in the future, after it was confirmed that Marvel Studios would be making R-rated movies including Deadpool 3.
Reynolds was asked whether the movie was in development during a recent appearance on the talk show Live With Kelly & Ryan (via Metro).
Deadpool 3 is officially happening at Marvel
Here’s what he had to say on the matter:
We’re working on it right now with the whole team. We’re over at Marvel, which is the big leagues all of a sudden. It’s kind of crazy.
When Reynolds said “the whole team” I’m pretty sure he meant Deadpool 1 and 2’s writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.
Reynolds has been working with the writing duo for quite some time now. He’s done a load of films with them.
There was Deadpool 1 and 2, of course, but he also starred in 6 Underground which was also written by them, so it sounds like they have a good working relationship.
