Fox will release the combined package of 2016’s Deadpool and its sequel Deadpool 2 on August 21. The set will included the unrated extended edition of Deadpool 2, also known as the Super Duper Cut. This cut features 15 minutes of footage that was not seen in theaters.
This new collection set also happens to the tease the possibility of more Deadpool films in the future after its star and producer Ryan Reynolds said that the franchise will evolve in the X-Foce moving forward.
“For Deadpool 3, you know, it’s an odd thing to say but I don’t think there will be a Deadpool 3,” Reynolds told Starnews Korea in May. “I think going forward it would be an X-Force movie, which would be his team, so to speak.”
Deadpool 2 introduced a team dubbed as X-Force, assembled to capture mutant Rusty Collins from a prison convoy. The team had characters like Bedlam, Zeitgeist, Shatterstar, Vanisher and Peter. However a new unofficial iteration also came up featuring Domino, Cable, Colossus, Yukio and Negasonic Teenage Warhead.
Reynolds even revealed in a interview with Variety that they are planning for an X-Force film too alongside Deadpool 3.
“I feel like the character, in order for him to function properly within his own universe, you need to take everything away from him. I don’t think that you can keep doing that,”
“I do see him as being a part of X-Force, obviously. I would love to see him in a team-up sort of thing, like a mano-a-mano or a great female character from the X-Men universe. I just think if you’re going to do another Deadpool solo film, you’ve got to really, like, get that budget down to nothing and just swing for the fences, and break all kinds of weird barriers, and do stuff that no one else can do.”
We expect Disney to retain Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool after their merger with Fox gets finalised. Reynolds will be yet again teaming up with Josh Brolin and Beetz as they have a four movie contract each with Fox.
