Just weeks after casting doubt on the future of the Deadpool franchise, Ryan Reynolds has done a complete U-turn, confirming that Deadpool 3 WILL be happening after all.
Not only that, but he's determined to get Hugh Jackman to co-star as Wolverine…
When asked in a recent interview on Lorraine about whether round three would be happening, Reynolds revealed, "Yes, we have the suit. It's the role I feel most privileged to have in my entire career. I feel like I was sort of born for it. I love Deadpool. It's the miracle of the mask."
And as for Wolverine? "I badger Hugh Jackman weekly to put the claws back on," said Reynolds. Indeed, Deadpool and Logan are regular rivals / colleagues in the comic-books, and seeing Jackman's gruff badassery paired with Reynolds' motormouth antics is SO what we're here for.
Keep those fingers crossed, then. In the meantime, you can check out Deadpool 2 in cinemas now.
