Ryan Reynolds isn't letting a little Avengers rejection get him down.
While they await the amalgamation's outcome, Wade Wilson fans will have to make due with Deadpool 2, which opens May 18th domestically.
Reynolds discussed a third Deadpool film while promoting the latest sequel in Korea, explaining that it's probably going to be more of a team-up rather than a solo film.
Reynolds, whose character additionally comes underneath the Marvel banner, posted a message on Twitter saying: "From a man who by no means is aware of when to stop, I am glad you guys by no means did". While Deadpool 2 was being developed, word broke that Deadpool 3 would "introduce the X-Force", but now we know that introduction actually takes place in Deadpool 2.
Comic book readers will certainly agree that Deadpool makes a ideal foil for any number of characters, and some of his funniest moments come when there's a well-known hero to play the straight man or woman to his inherent zaniness.
Do you think Deadpool will continue once Disney completes the purchase?
Then there are the ideas that Reynolds has of his own, which are ... interesting, to say the least.
"Why do they all have to be big comic book movies?" he added. It could be anything. The first would be to have Deadpool in a team-up movie.
In the first Deadpool movie, the sex, swearing, and outright ridiculousness were vital to the film's success. I think we'll be able to take two paths. That would be different alright.
"I do see him as being a part of X-Force, obviously", he continued, referencing the group of mutants featured in the highly-anticipated sequel, which will pave the way for a standalone X-Force film already in development. The Green Lantern [joke in Deadpool] to me is just sort of, I don't know, kind of fun.
