Ryan Reynolds Officially Returning For ‘Deadpool 3’

2016’s ‘Deadpool’ was a box office smash hit – garnering significant financial and critical success. With its twisted jokes and dark humor, fans were left gripped by the on-screen iteration of the mouthy superhero.

But, given Disney’s recent deal with FOX studio’s, Deadpool’s future hung in the balance, with many fans speculating whether the Merc with a Mouth will be joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, if Disney will water down the R-rated comic book character or even axe him completely.

Luckily, it seems fans have no cause to worry, as co-writer Paul Wernick, has confirmed that Marvel has given them permission to continue making R-rated films for the ‘Deadpool’ franchise.

“Marvel has promised to continue to let us play in the R-rated Deadpool universe, and the hope is that they will also let us veer into the MCU a little bit as well and play in that sandbox,” Wernick explained.

Disney CEO, Bob Igner, appeared to back up this point earlier this year.

In February, Igner said Disney would allow R-rated movies to go forward, specifically mentioning Deadpool as an example.

“We do believe there is room for the Fox properties to exist without significant Disney influence over the nature of the content, meaning that we see that there is certainly popularity amongst Marvel fans for the R-rated Deadpool films, as a, for instance, we’re going to continue in that business,” he said.

The man behind the superhero, Ryan Reynolds, appears to have confirmed his involvement in the upcoming ‘Deadpool 3,’ taking to Twitter to share a cryptic snap while he visited Marvel Studios.

As of now, Paul Wernick has said that while they are preparing for a third installment of the franchise, there are things that need to be “sorted out.”

Speaking to website Den of Geek, he said: ‘We’re just waiting for the word from on high.

“There’s a lot to be sorted out, like how Deadpool fits into the Marvel Universe with the other characters of the MCU.

“Then it’s, do the X-Men get in there at some point? Fantastic Four? There’s a lot to be sorted out and I think we’re all getting a much-needed rest from Deadpool – Ryan and us and everybody.”

So, while it seems we have a little while to wait until we see the Merc with a Mouth on our screens again, at least we’ve got the peace of mind that he isn’t going anywhere.
