Ryan Reynolds Says Work Has Begun on DEADPOOL 3 and it Will Go in a Different Direction
It’s safe to assume that we haven’t seen the last of Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool, even with the merger of Disney and Fox. These films are very popular, they have a huge fan base, and the creative team behind it is doing it right.
For those of you wondering what the status was on Deadpool 3, you’ll be happy to hear that it’s being worked on. The news comes from Ryan Reynolds himself, Variety reports:
"His team was already at work on 'Deadpool 3,' [Reynolds] added... He did say, however, that in the third installment, they were 'looking to go in a completely different direction,' saying that 'often, they reboot or change a character maybe like four movies too late.'"
I could see them mixing things up with a new film. It’ll be interesting to see what new direction it will go. I also can’t help but wonder if that new direction is motivated by Disney/Marvel.
Ryan Reynolds previously shared his thoughts on Deadpool 3 and explained that he wasn't even sure if the movie would happen. If it did happen, though, he shared what his vision for it would be:
"I feel like the character, in order for him to function properly within his own universe, you need to take everything away from him. I don’t think that you can keep doing that. I do see him as being a part of X-Force, obviously. I would love to see him in a team-up sort of thing, like a mano a mano or a great female character from the X-Men universe. I just think if you’re going to do another Deadpool solo film, you’ve got to really, like, get that budget down to nothing and just swing for the fences, and break all kinds of weird barriers, and do stuff that no one else can do."
It would also be great to see Leitch return to direct. In a previous interview, he did say that he would love to work on another Deadpool movie:
"I would love to work with Ryan [Reynolds] and Rhett [Reese] and Paul [Wernick] and Simon [Kinberg] again. We just had a really good time and I love this world, and I love this universe, and I love the character that he’s made so endearing to the fans, and so I would be grateful to work on something again. It just depends on time and place, so we’ll see what happens."
It will be awhile before we see Deadpool 3 happen, especially since Drew Goddard’s X-Force movie is supposed to be the next one to be released.
In the mean time, I’ll just be looking forward to seeing what’s in store next for Deadpool’s wild journey in the movies.
