With the impending Disney/Fox merger, the future for Deadpool and his ‘X-Force’ seems uncertain. However, Deadpool actor/producer/writer Ryan Reynolds doesn’t seem concerned for his version of ‘The Merc With The Mouth.’
While talking with Variety and on a promotional tour in China for Once Upon A Deadpool, Reynolds had this to say about the sequel:
“(We’re) looking to go in a completely different direction,” saying that “often, they reboot or change a character maybe like four movies too late.”
He also confirmed that his team is currently at work on the project, thought not specifying who this “team” is. Presumedly, it’s himself and Deadpool 1 & 2 writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.
It’ll be interesting to see what this “completely different direction” could be. It may actually be a film focused on X-Force, the mercenary team comprised of Cable, Domino and Deadpool as well as others.
Only time will tell if this movie ever sees the light of day, whether it’s at Fox or at Disney.
