Ryan Reynolds Says That He Doesn't Know If 'Deadpool 3' Will Happen
Deadpool 2 isn't even in the cinemas yet, but Ryan Reynolds has already said that he doesn't know whether there will be a third outing for the potty-mouthed antihero.
Completely aside from the fact that we haven't even seen the second instalment of the franchise yet, people have been asking the Canadian actor about whether he would be happy to jump into the famous red jumpsuit once more.
However, he did say that he'd be up for the motor-mouthed mercenary tipping up in ensemble casts for different superheroes, so that's something at least.
Speaking at a promotional get-together for Deadpool 2, he said: ''I don't know that there would be a Deadpool 3. I really don't.
''I feel like the character, in order for him to function properly within his own universe, you need to take everything away from him. I don't think that you can keep doing that...
''I just think if you're going to do another Deadpool solo film, you've got to really, like, get that budget down to nothing and just swing for the fences, and break all kinds of weird barriers, and do stuff that no one else can do.''
OK, so it would have to be even weirder than the first two. Sounds like it's still on the table, though.
He did say that he could see the character appearing in an X-Force movie - for those who don't know, X-Force are a band of mutants quite similar to the X-Men, but a bit more bloodthirsty. In the comic books they were led by Cable, who is played by Josh Brolin in Deadpool 2.
That means that we might find out a bit more about any future projects by watching the latest instalment.

Reynolds continued: 'I do see him as being a part of X-Force, obviously. I would love to see him in a team-up sort of thing, like a mano a mano, or a great female character from the X-Men universe.''
"X-Force is generally made up of people who are very morally flexible, they're the guys who do the work the X-Men wouldn't or couldn't do.
"So you're dealing with this sort of rag-tag group of men and women who, you know, don't have the strong moral compass that, say, the Avengers do, or X-Men."
He's also keen to take the franchise in a new and interesting direction, even if that means trying to appeal to a different audience.
Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, he said: ''Why do they all have to be big comic book movies? It could be anything. Deadpool could be a [independent cinema festival] Sundance film.'
''I do think that we could go to a lot of very unexpected places. I'll just put it that way, but I would love that.''
