With Deadpool being such a major hit, Fox got right to work on making Deadpool 2, but that doesn’t mean that Deadpool 3 will be out anytime soon, if at all. According to the Merc with a Mouth actor, Ryan Reynolds, we are more likely to see an X-Force movie than DP3.
Reynolds is starting his press interviews any time now for the sequel to the massive blockbuster hit – and with that, comes the questions about what happens after Deadpool 2 is out and everyone is starting to move on from it. According to Reynolds, he doesn’t see Deadpool 3 happening, but he does see them going forward with an X-Force film:
“For Deadpool 3, you know, it’s an odd thing to say but I don’t think there will be a Deadpool 3. I think going forward it would be an X-Force movie, which would be his team so to speak.”
It seems that Fox would rather take Deadpool away from his solo ass-kicking and bring the team approach in. While we were under the impression that both films were in development, it seems that we may only get the one at this point. How they go forward will probably depend on fan reaction to the other characters added into the movie.
The sequel is going to be introducing the X-Force, instead of the transitioning into an X-Force film – meaning they threw the fans a curve ball by throwing it all into Deadpool 2. This can also be due to the merger that is coming between Fox and Disney, and Fox potentially wanted to pump these two films out before their time was up, and by putting these two together, it does save them some time.
