If is one Marvel Studios movie fans are desperate for more news on, it’s Deadpool 3. The Ryan Reynolds-led threequel might not be the flashiest film on Marvel’s upcoming slate, but it is one of the few projects due in the next handful of years that the company has barely talked about. Even Marvel’s signature Hall H presentation failed to offer any new information on Wade Wilson’s next big adventure. Luckily for fans, however, studio boss Kevin Feige came through with a fresh little tidbit when speaking to The Hollywood Reporter earlier this week.
While discussing the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Feige mentioned he hopes Deadpool 3 can be as grand of a trilogy capper as Captain America: Civil War and Thor: Ragnarok before it:
How do we elevate it in the way we’ve been able to with Civil War, and Infinity War, and Ragnarok? It’s very fun to be in the world of the Ryan Reynolds show.Kevin Feige
It’s been stated by Feige and Reynolds before that the creatives involved with Deadpool 3 are taking great care to craft a good script. It would seem fans should expect the third film in the franchise, which is set to take place within the MCU as opposed to the Fox X-Men universe of the first two installments, to go big instead of going home.
If the mentioned examples are any indication, Marvel may be planning on bringing a few other guest characters into Deadpool’s theatrical journey. Civil War and Infinity War both featured essentially the entire MCU at the time of their releases, and Ragnarok had fun throwing Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk into the life of Chris Hemsworth’s Thor. Perhaps the next time audiences see the Merc with a Mouth, he’ll have most of the Marvel universe standing beside him.
There is no current release date for Deadpool 3.
