There’s been a big update about the status of Deadpool 3.
In a recent interview with Collider, Marvel boss Kevin Feige revealed that the third movie in the Deadpool franchise is still going to be happening, but this time around it will be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“It will be rated R and we are working on a script right now, and Ryan’s overseeing a script right now…,” Kevin shared about star Ryan Reynolds‘ involvement.
He added that Deadpool 3 will “not be [filming] this year. Ryan is a very busy, very successful actor. We’ve got a number of things we’ve already announced that we now have to make, but it’s exciting for it to have begun.”
“Again, a very different type of character in the MCU, and Ryan is a force of nature, which is just awesome to see him bring that character to life.”
Sisters Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin and Wendy Molyneux are working on the script and it is expected that the movie will film in 2022.
Creator Rob Leifeld opened up last year about how he didn’t think the movie would actually happen.
Ryan later filmed a funny spoof about the delay of the movie.
