Work is now underway on the first Marvel Studios’ Deadpool film, according to the film franchise’s star/co-writer/producer Ryan Reynolds.
While appearing on ABC’s Live with Kelly and Ryan earlier this week, the actor was asked about progress on the film – and he answered in the affirmative.
“Yeah yeah, we’re working on it with the whole team,” Reynolds said. “We’re over at Marvel now – it’s the big leagues all of a sudden.”
Reynolds doesn’t specify who “the whole team” is, but presumably it would include the writers of the previous films, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Deadpool 2 director David Leitch has also expressed interest in returning for a sequel.
Not for nothing, Reynolds also mentioned he met Mariah Carey – and both she and one of her sons are fans of Deadpool.
Given Celine Dion’s song in Deadpool 2, is it too soon to speculate on a Mariah Carey Christmas song for the third Deadpool?
