Back in December, Ryan Reynolds confirmed that Deadpool 3 was currently being developed over at Marvel, describing the process as feeling like the “big leagues.”
But how does the foul-mouthed and super-violent Deadpool fit in with the House of Mouse? Reynolds, while talking up his upcoming film Free Guy with Total Film Magazine, spoke about now feeling like a bit of an outsider with regards to Deadpool 3 and its trajectory at Marvel and Disney.
“It’s just all so new with it being over at Marvel now,” he said, “and, you know, figuring out the ins and outs as much as I can, from where I sit.”
“I don’t feel like an insider at all,” he added. “I think once I’m more intimate with it – if we get to make a Deadpool 3… if or when we get to make a Deadpool 3, I’ll probably have a better perspective on that. But I’m a huge fan of Marvel, and how they make movies. So when Disney bought Fox, I only saw that as a good thing. Deadpool hopefully being allowed to play in that sandbox, I think is just a win for everyone involved. But we’ll certainly see.”
Free Guy, which in many ways is GTA “The Movie,” was originally slated for a July 3 release but has now been pushed back to December 11 – along with dozens of other movies and TV shows that have had their release postponed or their production halted.
Last month, the highly-anticipated Deadpool skin arrived in Fortnite for those who own the Battle Pass.
