Disney’s acquisition of Fox has left fans wondering if the deal, which is expected to be completed by March, will lead to cancellation of some of the fan-favorite franchises including Deadpool, X-Men, and the Fantastic Four. There have been rumors circulating that Deadpool 3 and X-Force might have been canceled. But, thankfully, Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld has confirmed that the Ryan Reynolds-led sequel film is still happening.
“Nothing like deadlines to clear your head… let me be clear Deadpool 3 will happen, some form, some fashion. That’s not a concern to me. Disney paid $60 billion for Fox and Deadpool is the most valuable asset in today’s market. Makes more than X-Men films,” Liefeld noted on Twitter.
Earlier this month, Liefeld commented that he does not expect the planned X-Force movie to move forward. He indicated that the X-Force movie was a “victim” of Disney’s $71.3 billion acquisition of 21st Century Fox.
Coming to Deadpool 3, considering the fact that Marvel Cinematic Universe has been a PG-13 cinematic universe, fans are in doubt if an R-rated property like Deadpool would be incorporated in it. But, actor Ryan Reynolds himself confirmed last week that the filmmakers have begun work on Deadpool 3.
While attending Deadpool 2’s theatrical release in China, Reynolds said that his team is already at work on Deadpool 3. He revealed that the next Deadpool film will likely head in a completely different direction, joking that the movie studio often reboots characters “like four movies too late.”
Even Deadpool 2 writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick told ScreenRant that they are shooting ideas back and forth for Deadpool 3 with Reynolds. The writer duo confirmed that the studio will first roll out X-force movie before releasing the third Deadpool installment.
Directed by David Leith, Deadpool 2 is currently available on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital HD.
