Ryan Reynolds gave everyone a wonderful Christmas gift this year as he just confirmed that Deadpool 3 is in the works.
On an episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan, Ryan Reynolds told the co-hosts that the “whole team” was working on Deadpool 3, but that wasn’t the only good news because he also confirmed that they are now part of the Marvel family!
The biggest issue with Deadpool moving to Marvel (and Disney) is the fact that, if you’ve seen the films, you know that Ryan Reynold’s character isn’t the most “family-friendly”.
However, now it looks as if the studio is 100% on board with having Deadpool join the Marvel family!
“Yeah we’re working on it right now with the whole team,” Reynolds said. “We’re over at Marvel [Studios] now, which is like the big leagues all of a sudden. It’s kinda crazy. So yeah, we’re working on it.”
Rob Liefeld, who is the comic writer and artist of Deadpool, had recently shared his thoughts on Disney making more movies with the character. In fact, Liefeld felt it was inevitable, no matter what plans the Walt Disney Company has for Marvel.
“You know, I just hope they can get it together,” Liefeld told Variety. “Fans want it. Fans want to see it. The whole thing about Deadpool is that culture moves so fast now and two years ago feels like twenty. There were two R-rated movies — and they were R-rated movies — that together made $1.2 billion and yes, I looked at those and counted them up.”
Though we aren’t sure when Deadpool 3 will officially arrive, at least we now have confirmation that a film is, in fact, being worked on!
