Have you always wanted to see a Christmas movie with Deadpool? It almost happened… At least according to Ryan Reynolds.
Deadpool 3 is among the most anticipated Marvel films scheduled for the next few years, but before this third installment, Ryan Reynolds revealed that we could have some kind of special… a Christmas movie with the chatty mercenary!
The relatively recent announcements on Deadpool 3 have inflamed the Marvel fanbase, excited to see the return, in addition to the character played by Ryan Reynolds, also Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine in this third film in the film saga, the first produced under the aegis of Kevin Feige .
But there is one film that, according to Reynolds, was “lost along the way” during Disney’s acquisition of FOX.
As Deadline reports, the Canadian actor has in fact revealed that “I would love to see songs and choreography in a Deadpool movie. Four years ago, [i co-sceneggiatori di Deadpool] Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick and I wrote a Christmas movie with Deadpool. But he got lost along the way in the turmoil of Disney’s takeover of FOX“.
But Reynolds hasn’t given up hope yet: “Maybe one day we’ll be able to bring it to the screen. it’s not a musical, but it’s an actual Deadpool Christmas movie. So maybe one day…“.
And as even the most recent events teach us, Reynolds’ hope is always the last to die, and is often rewarded… Think of Hugh Jackman’s return as Wolverine for the new film!

After “courting” him for six years “it was Hugh at the end who said ‘I think I’m ready to come back'” Reynolds had told the microphones of ET “All we had to do at that point was sell the idea to Kevin Feige, and it didn’t take long. And so, here we are“.
Deadpool 3 is expected to hit theaters in 2024, directed by Shawn Levy.
