Ryan Reynolds is one of the most famous superheroes on the planet. Who would've thought? After the awful Green Lantern and Wolverine: Origins movies seemingly destroyed Reynolds' chances of suiting up ever again, a leaked promo video for a new Deadpool film hit the web and helped fast track the film. Since then, Reynolds has been worshipped on a level akin to Hugh Jackman or Robert Downey Jr. Both Deadpool and Deadpool 2 killed it at the box office, making $783 million and $743 million, respectively.
In a recent piece with Variety, it was revealed that Reynolds is working on Deadpool 3. The revelation came during Reynolds Chinese promo run for Deadpool 2. Neither of the Deadpool films have passed China's strict regulations on movies, although millions have seen the films through online sources. The PG-13 cut of Deadpool 2, dubbed Once Upon A Deadpool, finally passed China's movie guidelines, and Reynolds was in the country celebrating the victory and doing promo. In the best English translation, the Chinese version of the film is titled Deadpool 2: I Love My Family. While speaking on the press run, Variety claims that Reynolds stated his team is hard at work on Deadpool 3. He continued on to claim they are “looking to go in a completely different direction,” saying that “often, they reboot or change a character maybe like four movies too late."
