Deadpool 3 is in the works with two Bob’s Burgers writers currently working on the screenplay.
Deadline says Ryan Reynolds has been hearing pitches from writers concerning the future of his biggest character. Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin won out and will write the script.
Marvel Studios and Kevin Feige are on board to work on the new movie, which is still in early development. It will be the first Deadpool movie produced directly by Marvel Studios.
The Deadpool Twitter account seemingly confirmed the news by tweeting out a picture of Bob from Bob’s Burgers with Deadpool’s dual swords on his back.

This will mark the first time in the franchise that the script will not be written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Deadpool 2 director David Leitch is reportedly also not on board and hasn’t participated in the meetings for a new writer so far.
Deadline says that Leitch has a schedule filled through 2021, but Deadpool 3 is far enough away that Leitch may still be able to direct.
There is no official word yet if the movie can secure an R-rating, but Disney’s former CEO Bob Iger, who is now the executive chairman of Disney, has already given his blessing to an R-rating.
Deadpool’s creator Rob Liefeld said last May that there was “no movement” on Deadpool 3, which he reiterated at Comic-Con in July.
Josh Brolin recently discussed his time playing Cable in Deadpool 2, but there’s no word yet on if he or any other cast members besides Reynolds will return for Deadpool 3.

If these new writers need any ideas then IGN has put together a list of the comic book stories that would make a great inspiration for Deadpool 3.
