According to Deadline, Reynolds is set to return as Wade Wilson for Deadpool 3. The upcoming sequel will not be written by Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, who penned the first two films. Instead, Marvel is reportedly hiring Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Logelin to write the script. The Molyneux sisters are best known for their work on Bob’s Burgers, where they are writers and executive producers.
Marvel boss Kevin Feige recently spoke with Collider about the upcoming release of WandaVision, and he shared some new updates about Deadpool 3. In addition to confirming Deadpool 3 will be set within the MCU, he gave an idea about what the production timeline will be like. “It will not be [filming] this year. Ryan is a very busy, very successful actor,” Feige said. The script is currently being written, and as Marvel has so many projects on their hands, it looks like Deadpool 3 won’t begin filming until 2022 at the earliest.
