Ryan Reynolds Gives Some Hints At Deadpool 3 Announcement


Many fans of the popular 2016 version of the mark with the mouth have been eagerly anticipating the eventual return of Deadpool. The character hasn’t been seen since 2018’s Deadpool 2 where we saw the character die but then come back to life with the help of our time traveling friend Cable.

Ever since Disney acquired 20th Century Fox in 2019 many fans have expressed their concern over the house of mouse possibly censoring the character for a wider audience. Those fears were amplified with the 2018 re-edit of Deadpool 2 called Once Upon A Deadpool, which cut out most of the swearing, violence/gore and sexual themes, turning the R-Rated affair into a standard PG-13 action film.

After months of no news actor Ryan Reynolds has given us a hint at when we may hear some news on the currently in development 3rd film. An interviewer from Collider sat down with Ryan and director Shawn Levy to talk about their new film The Adam Project. The interviewer asked them if they would possibly work together on Deadpool 3. Ryan had this to say:

We pretty much talk about everything, but I’ll say this about that particular subject is I’ll have a batch of updates on that sooner rather than later, I hope. So I’ll be able to get into stuff about Deadpool a little bit more clearly and definitively down the road.

The Deadpool series has grossed over $1.5 Billion and is one of the most profitable R-Rated film franchises out there. That is something Disney will definitely want to capitalize on. Especially if they can somehow mix the series in with the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But again the franchise may be forced to take a different direction going forward due to Disney not usually getting into the R-Rated film territory unless it’s under their Tuchstone label.
