A fan poster for ‘Deadpool 3’ sees Wade Wilson foreshadow his tenure in the Marvel Cinematic Universe by impersonating every founding ‘Avenger’. Ryan Reynolds’ Merc with a Mouth made his true debut 2016’s ‘Deadpool’, the success of which lead to ‘Deadpool 2’ (2018). Both films in the franchises are some of the highest-grossing R-rated films of all time, changing the way people look at comic book movies. That being said, ‘Deadpool 3’ was a soon-to-see certainty before the Disney-Fox merger, which brought the meta mercenary, the ‘X-Men’, and the Fantastic Four under the control of Marvel Studios.
The fate of ‘Deadpool 3’ remained in limbo until Reynolds recently made his irreverent MCU debut alongside Korg in a promotional video for Free Guy. Now, it’s become clear that the film is in development at Marvel Studios with Bob's Burgers writers, Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Logelin, on board to pen the script. While little is known about the film, and whether it’ll include Deadpool 2 characters like Cable (Josh Brolin), Domino (Zazie Beetz), and Colossus (Stefan Kapičić), it is expected to be R-rated with Reynolds saying there’s a 70% chance it begins filming next year.
In anticipation for ‘Deadpool 3’, artiste Erathrim on Instagram recently shared some art imagining Reynolds’ Wade Wilson as every founding member of the Avengers. The pieces mock Nick Fury’s famous “there was an idea…” speech by depicting Deadpool as Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Black Widow, Captain America, and Hawkeye, who, instead of an arrow, draws back Wolverine’s severed hand.
Now that Hugh Jackman appears to have permanently retracted his claws, Reynolds’ Deadpool is easily the most popular character to come out of Fox’s X-Men franchise. -Screen Rant
