Ryan Reynolds not too long ago joked that Deadpool 3 was virtually writing itself, and a variety of followers shall be hoping that’s truly the case after the Merc with a Mouth’s Marvel Cinematic Universe debut has didn’t make any type of headway in growth regardless of being confirmed nearly a complete 12 months in the past.
It doesn’t assist that the main man retains signing on to increasingly more films within the meantime, whereas one of many main sticking factors is presumably the best way to parachute a preferred and but very a lot R-rated character right into a family-friendly franchise, and that’s with out even mentioning the self-referential and meta fourth wall-breaking humor that’s at all times been Deadpool’s trademark.
After all, Wade Wilson has been linked with nearly each MCU undertaking throughout Phases 4 and 5, together with a number of others which might be solely mentioned to be within the dialogue phases, and we’ve now heard from our sources – the identical ones that informed us Reynolds had a secret position in Hobbs & Shaw and Netflix is creating a Witcher spinoff collection – that Deadpool 3 may be a prequel with a large time bounce in it.
Based on our intel, one of many many concepts being thrown round behind the scenes at Marvel Studios is to set no less than a very good chunk of the film ten to fifteen years in the past when Wade was nonetheless a part of the Weapon X program, one thing we’ve seen earlier than in each X-Males Origins: Wolverine and his first solo outing.
The story will then result in him betraying them, earlier than leaping to the trendy day and Deadpool 3 ending by firmly establishing the fan favourite as half of the present MCU timeline. After all, the film is making such gradual progress that something might realistically occur at this level, and Marvel Studios shall be seeking to hold their playing cards as near the chest as doable relating to specifics, however in the meanwhile, no less than, that is the path they appear to be heading in.
