The Deadpool movie legacy continues as Marvel Studios and Ryan Reynolds taps the Molyneaux sisters from Bob’s Burgers fame for Deadpool 3.
Ryan Reynolds is set to reprise his role as the sarcastic anti-hero with Wendy and Lizzie Molyneaux (who served as writers and executive producers for Bob’s Burgers) onset to write the latest movie. As reported by Deadline, meetings with the team have been ongoing all month with Reynolds listening to pitches from writers of all visions. According to the site, Reynolds immediately fell in love with what the Molyneaux sisters brought to Deadpool’s story, and the match made in Marvel heaven is officially a “go” to move onto the next step.
Deadpool 3 is currently in early development but hiring the writing team, especially of this caliber, is the biggest first step when prepping for onsite production. What’s also worth noting is that this marks the first movie that will have both Ryan Reynolds and his team working side-by-side with Marvel Studios, including the beloved Kevin Feige.
According to the site, Deadpool 3 is looking to continue on the legacy of being R-rated with a new director at the helm with David Leitch. According to the report, Leitch’s involvement isn’t confirmed, but the interest is there and negotiations have started.
We don’t know anything about the premise of Deadpool 3 at this time, but given the success of the first two films and the revamped team? It looks like the third movie could carry on that hilarity in the best way possible for Marvel fans.
