Deadpool 3 is getting an Easter egg-packed update that includes references to a number of Ryan Reynold’s other projects.
Deadpool 3 has received an update that contains many references to series star Ryan Reynolds’ business ventures.
On Twitter, the official Deadpool account tweeted an update on the third film, which you can see below. In the caption, the update jokingly states dead pool 3 has already “firmed brand integrations” and will soon move on to “story, character and script”. The picture itself shows Peter (Rob Delaney) in the scene where the various members of the X-Force are being recruited. However, the image has been altered to include references to a number of brands affiliated with or owned by Reynolds, including Mint Mobile, Aviation Gin and Wrexham FC.
Reynolds first played Deadpool in 2009 X-Men Origins: Wolverine. While this film was critically slated, Fox took a completely different tack with the character as of 2016 Dead Pool. The film stars Reynolds as Wade Wilson/Deadpool, a mercenary who undergoes experimental healing after being diagnosed with cancer. The cure awakens his mutated genes, giving him an incredibly powerful healing factor. Reynolds reprized his role for 2018 dead pool 2. Both films were critically and commercially successful.
While Fox originally had plans for both, a dead pool 3 and a movie centered on X Force, Disney completed the acquisition of key assets from 21st Century Fox in 2019 and gave the House of Mouse the rights to the X-Men, the Fantastic Four and many other characters. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige later confirmed that Deadpool 3 did indeed have a place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe release schedule. Earlier this year Shawn Levy – who worked with Reynolds on 2021 free guy and 2022s The Adam Project — joined Deadpool 3 as a director. Reynolds has since confirmed Leslie Uggams, who played blind Al in both Dead Pool Movies, will return for the third.
While MCU films are generally rated PG-13, the two are Fox Dead Pool Films were rated R and set many records for films with that rating. In 2021, Feige confirmed that Deadpool 3 would be an R-rated film. Former Disney CEO Bob Iger also hinted numerous times that Deadpool films would remain R-rated once the House of Mouse took control of the character.
dead pool 3 does not have an official release date at the time of writing.
