Over the past few months, there have been rumors about Deadpool 3, including the ideas that two versions of character will be introduced in the new MCU movie Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Marvel has not yet confirmed anything about the third installment of Deadpool, though Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds recently stated that the project is officially underway. Here’s is what we know about Deadpool 3.
Reynolds Says About ‘Deadpool 3’
The introduction of Deadpool and X-men into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is admittedly a tricky thing. Unlike some characters, Deadpool appears to the scene with an R-rating and a penchant for destroying the fourth wall, which are the two things no other Marvel superhero does.
The movie makes over a billion dollars in its first two movies, which was released in 2016 and 2018, respectively. It would be unwise to get cleared of the things that make Deadpool so famous. But it also makes it hard to introduce the character without making too crazy.
Marvel has been holding Deadpool’s future MCU cameos under covers, but Ryan Reynolds recently gave a hint about what’s to come. According to sources, the Deadpool actor revealed that the pre-production of Deadpool 3 is underway, which he defined as being “kinda crazy.”
He stated that ‘Yeah, we are working on it right now with the whole team of the movie. We are over at Marvel Studios now, which is like the great leagues all of a sudden. It’s kinda crazy. So yeah, we are working on it,’
It should be noted that the production of Deadpool 3 has not started yet, and it sounds like they are in the early stages of having a script. It is also likely that Deadpool appears in a different MCU film before the starting of Deadpool 3, which would serve as a way to introduce him to the MCU.
Why Was Deadpool Not Introduced In MCU Before
One of the many questions is that why was not Deadpool introduced in the MCU before and what the character was doing during the first three phases of the MCU.
One way to answer this problem is that the first two Deadpool movies were set after the events of Avengers: Endgame. The films never truly establish a time-frame or comment on global events, so Marvel could take this way to explain what Deadpool has been doing all these years.
If Marvels utilizes this tactic, then Wade Wilson, aka Deadpool, was just an ordinary mercenary when the Avengers were fighting Thanos (Josh Brolin) over the fate of the universe.
