Ryan Reynolds Teases Uncertain Future of Deadpool

How long will Ryan Reynolds continue to play Deadpool after the upcoming Deadpool and Wolverine movie? Even he is unsure.

In a recent interview with Variety, Reynolds pondered the future of his role as Deadpool. While there is a possibility that Deadpool and Wolverine could be his final appearance, he also acknowledged he could continue to play the character for years to come.

Reynolds admitted that he is uncertain about the longevity of his tenure as Deadpool. He mentioned that he can envision various futures, including continuing in solo films or being part of an ensemble, but he also considered that Deadpool and Wolverine might be his last effort.

“I can imagine a solo movie, being part of an ensemble,” Reynolds said. “I can imagine that this is also the last time.” He concluded by saying, “I never feel anything other than that.”

The ensemble Reynolds referred to could be the Avengers. With two more Avengers movies on the horizon, including Secret Wars, which is expected to feature over 60 characters, there is speculation about Reynolds’ potential inclusion.

To add fuel to the fire, Reynolds has shared images of the Avengers flag on his Instagram. Additionally, there are rumors that Shawn Levy, the director of Deadpool and Wolverine, might helm the next Avengers film. This could pave the way for Reynolds’ appearance in the Avengers.

Ryan Reynolds first played Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, though this version differed from the comic book portrayal. It wasn’t until nearly seven years later that Reynolds starred in Tim Miller’s Deadpool, a film that depicted a more faithful rendition of the character, much to the delight of comic book fans.

Deadpool became a financial success, grossing over $780 million worldwide on a $58 million budget despite its R-rating. The sequel performed similarly, earning $785 million on a $110 million budget.

Now, fans eagerly await the third installment, Deadpool and Wolverine, set for a July 2024 release. This film marks Deadpool’s first appearance within the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) timeline, following Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox.

In Deadpool and Wolverine, Wade Wilson, played by Reynolds, finds his peaceful life interrupted by the Time Variance Authority (TVA). The TVA enlists him for a mission with significant consequences for the entire MCU timeline.

During this mission, Wade teams up with a reluctant Wolverine, portrayed by Hugh Jackman. Fans needn’t worry, though — this is a different version of Wolverine than the one who died in Logan. Together, they will face Cassandra Nova, played by Emma Corrin.

The movie will see the return of several actors from previous Deadpool films, including Morena Baccarin, Rob Delaney, Leslie Uggams, Karan Soni, Brianna Hildebrand, and Stefan Kapičić.

Additionally, members of the Fox X-Men universe will appear, with Jennifer Garner reprising her role as Elektra. She originally played the character in the 2003 Daredevil movie and its 2005 spin-off, Elektra.

Shawn Levy, who directed the film, has a history of working with both Reynolds and Jackman. He first directed Jackman in the 2011 film Real Steel and began collaborating with Reynolds in 2021, directing Free Guy and The Adam Project.

Deadpool and Wolverine is set to be released on July 26.
