Bob’s Burgers Writers Penning Script
Deadpool 3 has now been confirmed, with Ryan Reynolds and Disney hiring Bob’s Burgers’ Molyneux sisters to write the script.
According to Deadline, meetings have reportedly been taking place with writers over the past month, with Reynolds hearing an assortment of pitches from a variety of talented scribes, finally settling on Bob’s Burgers duo Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin to pen the highly-anticipated Deadpool threequel.
Before Deadpool 2 even hit theatres, star Reynolds said back in 2018 that he expressed doubt that Deadpool 3 would happen, saying –
“For Deadpool 3, you know, it’s an odd thing to say but I don’t think there will be a Deadpool 3. I think going forward it would be an X-Force movie, which would be his team, so to speak.”
By 2019, though, Reynolds was saying that he and franchise co-writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick were working on Deadpool 3 and that they were “looking to go in a completely different direction” with the new movie. Then, to further complicate matters, in 2020 Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld said that Marvel had “zero plans” for a third film.
The Deadpool franchise has been a huge success so far, both critically and financially, so it will be interesting to see what Disney and Marvel will do with him.
