Ryan Reynolds on Deadpool In MCU: ‘I Don’t Know’


Echoing statements from May, Ryan Reynolds again says he doesn’t know what is going on with Deadpool in the MCU, a Marvel character Disney recently acquired from the purchase of Fox Studios.

Speaking with Fast Company, Reynolds said:

Fans have grown increasingly impatient for Deadpool to reemerge—especially because the character is now a Disney property, which means he can potentially appear alongside the Avengers and Black Panther and the rest of the gang. So, uh, what’s happening with Deadpool? “Three words,” Reynolds says. “I don’t know. Obviously, everything is on pause right now.”

Back in May, speaking with Total Film, Reynolds offered:

“Oh, man, I really don’t know. It’s just all so new with it being over at Marvel now, and, you know, figuring out the ins and outs as much as I can, from where I sit. We’ll see.”

Deadpool 3 not happening anytime soon

It is known that Ryan Reynolds had a meeting with Kevin Feige and Marvel Studios last October, but rumors offer Feige passed on Reynolds’ Deadpool 3 pitch, which is something the creator of the comic book character, Rob Liefeld, seemingly backed up.

“Here’s what people don’t want to hear, but thank God I’m a realist, I feel like Deadpool, the movies, they’ve set sail,” said Liefeld in May. “…I’m not really that crazy about Marvel’s plan right now… Look, if they start making Deadpool today, it would come out in four years. I can’t be excited about that… You know what they have planned for Deadpool, right now? They got a goose egg. Zero. Zero.”

A recent Marvel insider also offered that Kevin Feige may go a PG-13 route with Deadpool and also that Feige doesn’t like to use ideas that aren’t his, as Feige is a “control freak,” which may be causing problems with Ryan Reynolds and Deadpool.

Ryan Reynolds also recently signed on for a new film, Everyday Parenting Tips, a monster-comedy in development at Universal Pictures, and according to IMDb has Red Notice (restarts filming in September), The Croods: A New Age (filming), an untitled Netflix/time travel project, Futha Mucka, Clue, and A Christmas Carol in the works — all of which are listed before any Deadpool 3 flick.
