Ryan Reynolds Offers “Deadpool 3” Update

When Disney acquired 20th Century Fox and regained the rights to Marvel properties like X-Men, Fantastic Four and Deadpool, the world of geekdom was excited beyond description about would come from it all. Sure it was going to take some time as that is a lot of characters to integrate into the rapidly growing Marvel Cinematic Universe and just a short time ago, Ryan Reynolds offered an update on the progress of “Deadpool 3”. Let’s watch.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I don’t know about you but that sure seemed to be far too easy but you really can’t tell with these two. Are they clowning us or is Hugh returning as Wolverine for his third go-round? Now part of me is willing to believe this to be true since Jackman is ending his run as the lead in the Broadway smash musical “The Music Man” in January to do “other things” and this makes a lot of sense to me. For those who don’t know Broadway shows at all, I will tell you that “The Music Man” is pulling in financials that would make your head spin if you looked at the box office at the end of the shows that have been running over these last few months. Why would someone leave all of that amount of money behind unless they had an offer to make a lot of money doing something else that just happens to be in the planning stages. Disney sure does have the cash to entice someone like Jackman back into the fold and he is surely in shape after doing that energetic show about eight times a week for the better part of a year. This would be great for those who want to see him in action once more but sad for the Broadway side as when Jackman leaves “The Music Man” the show is being sunset. So wrapping this up I wonder what you out there in the readership think about the tease. Chime in down below in the comments section and I will see you next time.
