Ryan Reynolds reveals "I don’t think there will be a Deadpool 3"
Ryan Reynolds has revealed he does not believe there will be a third Deadpool movie.
The star, who will lead the sequel Deadpool 2 later this month, says he believes this is the last time his character will headline his own movie, with the focus shifting to X-Force from now on.
He told a promotional event in Seoul, South Korea: "It’s an odd thing to say, but I don’t think there will be a Deadpool 3. I think going forward, it would be an X-Force movie, which would be his team, so to speak.”
He continued: "X-Force is much different than, say, Avengers or something. X-Force is generally made up of people who are very morally flexible, they’re the guys who do the work the X-Men wouldn’t, or couldn’t, do. So you’re dealing with this sort of rag-tag group of men and women who, you know, don’t have the strong moral compass that, say, the Avengers do, or X-Men.”
The new film, which arrives on May 15th, will see Reynolds’ Wade Wilson return and face off against Cable, a time-travelling soldier and well-loved nemesis from the X-Men comics. To help him in the fight, Deadpool forms a team of mutants called the X-Force to protect a young mutant from Cable.
Josh Brolin and Atlanta star Zazie Beetz will take major roles in the sequel. Brolin will play Cable, while Beetz will portray Domino.
Morena Baccarin, Julian Dennison, T.J. Miller, Brianna Hildebrand, Jack Kesy, Terry Crews, Rob Delaney and Stefan Kapičić are also in key roles, while John Wick co-director David Leitch takes charge of the sequel.
