Deadpool 2 Director David Leitch Rumored To Return For Deadpool 3

After Deadpool 2’s box office success this year, Fox is already looking forward to their next film in the franchise. The next installation will see the Merc with the Mouth teaming up with Domino and Cable in the film, X-Force.

The film will be directed by Drew Goddard and rumours say that there are plans for a potential third installation in the franchise after X-Force. The rumours reveal that the film will see director David Leitch returning in direction. The discussion to helm Deadpool 3 is rumoured to be in its early phases already.

However, Ryan Reynolds slammed these rumours saying that he is only focusing on X-Force currently than a third Deadpool film. Here’s what he said in an interview:

“I don’t know that there would be a Deadpool 3. I really don’t,” Reynolds told EW. “I feel like the character, in order for him to function properly within his own universe, you need to take everything away from him. I don’t think that you can keep doing that. I do see him as being a part of X-Force, obviously. I would love to see him in a team-up sort of thing, like a mano a mano or a great female character from the X-Men universe. I just think if you’re going to do another Deadpool solo film, you’ve got to really, like, get that budget down to nothing and just swing for the fences, and break all kinds of weird barriers, and do stuff that no one else can do.”

Deadpool 2 director David Leitch spoke about this during an interview with Den Of Geek. Here’s what he said:

“No, I’m not necessarily one and done. I would love to work with Ryan [Reynolds] and Rhett [Reese] and Paul [Wernick] and Simon [Kinberg] again. We just had a really good time and I love this world, and I love this universe, and I love the character that he’s made so endearing to the fans, and so I would be grateful to work on something again. It just depends on time and place, so we’ll see what happens.”

Deadpool 2 is now available on Bly-Ray and digital HD.
