Development on 'Deadpool 3' Already Happening with X-Force Plans
With the X-Men franchise looking at a revamp, Deadpool is the golden light of the Fox superhero spectrum right now. Despite being without a director, a third film is already being talked about, and may incorporate the long rumoured X-Force team.
THR cite sources that have indicated the faith in Reynolds and Deadpool as a franchise is at an understandable high, and they want to seal the deal on the future of this spin-off franchise. X-Force acts as an X-Men team that acts out the tasks the X-Men are too censored to attempt.
The fallout with director Tim Miller came with Miller hoping to up the stakes and budget, whereas Reynolds, who is also producer, wanted to maintain the gritty, street—level quality of the first film. If X-Force is the intended destination, the franchise will have to go big eventually.
Everything, however, still rides on Deadpool 2 being a success. With the same writers back on-board, and Reynolds dedicated to the role, they just need to get the right director and keep the ship upright.
