With the super success, each critically and commercially, of the primary two Deadpool films, it’s no marvel each time Ryan Reynolds does an interview, somebody will slip in a query about Deadpool 3. In spite of everything, the character continues to be extremely standard, and I’d argue the dearth of display screen time has really made the return of Deadpool much more anticipated, particularly since Marvel followers need to understand how the character will enter the Marvel universe. Additionally, ever since Kevin Feige introduced that when the Merc with a Mouth does enter the MCU, he’ll be the primary character that can get a film R-rated film.
Whereas some might marvel why Marvel would take into account mixing in an R-rated film into their tremendously profitable PG-13 lineup, I’ll offer you a straightforward reply: $1.56 billion. That’s how a lot cash the primary two Deadpool films made at twentieth Century Fox earlier than Marvel had any management over the character. Now that the character is beneath the umbrella of Feige and Marvel, the chances are limitless when it comes to what the longer term would possibly convey. As a longtime fan of Deadpool, I can’t wait to see him interacting with Physician Unusual and Thor, or for Spider-Man and Deadpool to debate one thing humorous on the streets of New York Metropolis.
Over the previous couple of months, Deadpool 3 information has been very quiet. Once I final spoke to Reynolds again in August of 2021 for Free Man, he informed me the script was coming alongside, and it had an honest change of being filmed in 2022. However since that point, nothing. No launch date. No director. No updates.
However that could possibly be altering quickly.
The opposite day, I used to be capable of communicate with Reynolds and director Shawn Levy for his or her improbable new Netflix film, The Adam Challenge, and inquired in regards to the Deadpool sequel. The principle motive I introduced it up was to ask if that they had talked about engaged on it collectively. The actual fact is, the 2 of them have made two wonderful films (Free Man and The Adam Challenge), they’ve a improbable relationship each on and off-screen, and since Levy has by no means made a comic book guide film, I may see him desirous to make one.
So, once I requested the 2 of them if that they had talked about doing Deadpool 3 collectively, Reynolds informed me:
“We just about discuss every part, however I am going to say this about that individual topic is I am going to have a batch of updates on that sooner somewhat than later, I hope. So I am going to have the ability to get into stuff about Deadpool a little bit bit extra clearly and definitively down the highway.”
Whereas Reynolds clearly didn’t need to share something now, it certain looks as if information on Deadpool 3 is on the horizon. Will or not it’s the much-anticipated launch date and who would possibly helm the sequel… I’m undecided. Hopefully we’ll know extra earlier than later.
Lastly, if you happen to haven’t seen the trailer for The Adam Challenge, you possibly can watch it under. As we get nearer to the March 11 launch date I’ll be posting extra from my dialog with Reynolds and Levy, and after launch, you possibly can anticipate a spoiler-filled dialog about a few of my favourite scenes within the movie.
