Deadpool is the only character from the Fox X-Men universe that will carry over to Disney with its current actor, Ryan Reynolds. Which, gives everyone a sense of relief, as it wouldn’t be fair to get rid of what Reynolds has done for the character. Still, fans are unsure what will happen to the Merc with the Mouth. Considering his R-Rated adventures in Deadpool 1 and 2, it’s fair to say that is not very MCU friendly.
And while Disney has expressed that we will see Deadpool again, Deadpool 2 director David Leitch shared that he has not been approached for a third movie. That’s not to say that he wouldn’t jump at the chance to make that third film:
“In everybody’s world, everybody wants to make it. So, if I was ever approached to make Deadpool 3, my answer would be, ‘Hell yes,’ but I think there’s a lot of things going on in the shake up with Fox and Disney and where that whole Marvel world after Endgame is gonna be. When the dust settles, let’s hope that Deadpool lives. That’s kind of ironic, right?”
One of the challenges, besides the nature of Deadpool; would be how to explain the existence of mutants and X-Men in the MCU. The Marvel Cinematic Universe didn’t just start. It’s been ten years and 22 movies – where were these mutants with powers while everything during the MCU was occurring? Leitch says that he does have ideas for that explanation as well, but isn’t too keen to sharing right now:
“I have a lot of ideas but I’m keeping them close to my vest so, if they ever come and I’m grateful enough for them to call, I can share all my crazy ideas,” Leitch says.
Do you want a Deadpool 3 and how do you think they can pull off introducing mutants into the MCU?
