AceShowbiz – A third “Deadpool 3” film is not on the Marvel schedule for the next five years, according to the creator of the comic that inspired the franchise.
Rob Liefeld has revealed that the much-anticipated sequel, which would star Ryan Reynolds, isn’t on the latest docket compiled by film bosses.
“Until a movie is put on a schedule, it’s not taken seriously,” Liefeld tells io9. “And what people don’t like is that I have assessed the schedule for the next – give or take – five years and I don’t see ‘Deadpool‘ on it. I don’t see that it can arrive earlier than that.”
The writer also clarified that some of his past comments on the lack of progress on the production were not a knock on executives at Marvel, but rather a way for him to be honest with “Deadpool” fans.
“Do I know that there is no movement on a ‘Deadpool 3’ right now? I know that, yes. Does that worry me? No, not at all,” he adds. “What I did was I answered a question honestly, and what I learned this week is just lie. Just tell people everything is lollipop and unicorns and rainbows and you’ll be better off in your life, because people want to be lied to.
“Just because some guy goes, ‘Yeah, we’re still moving along’, that’s code for ‘there’s nothing to see here’.”
“Deadpool” was released in 2016 and it’s hit follow-up debuted in 2018.
