Everyone’s favourite merc with a mouth is coming back, but it might not be everyone’s cup of tea…
The Deadpool franchise seems to have faced a pretty uncertain future, what with the whole Disney/Fox merger.
It’s been pretty hard to tell from the outside what would happen once everything transitions over to Disney. It seems like Deadpool 3 will definitely be happening though, only it may not be the Wade Wilson we’ve come to know and love.
Ryan Reynolds, the man behind the anti-hero, has said that writers are “looking to go in a completely different direction” with the third instalment.
Though his comments suggest that isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
“Often, they reboot or change a character maybe like four movies too late,” he told Variety.
The actor is currently promoting Deadpool 2 in China, where he says an unusual new nickname for his character has surfaced. Chinese fans dubbed his character “Little Jianjian”, which pretty much translates to “Little B*tchy B*tch” in English.
Apparently Reynolds liked the new title so much, he’s even considering using it in the title of the third movie.
He added: “I feel like my wife gave that to me first, but I guess China can get the credit.
“It could have been something much weirder, like ‘Hunting Wolf Blood-Chucker’. I’ll take Little Bitchy Bitch any day – it’s the most fitting. In fact, Deadpool 3 should be called Deadpool 3: Little B*tchy B*tch.”
According to Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, the X-Force film, which seemingly had been scrapped, will still happen before the third outing for Wade Wilson.
