Say it isn’t so!

There’s a possibility that a second sequel to Deadpool won’t happen and it comes from the horse’s mouth, aka the Merc with the Mouth, Ryan Reynolds himself.

The actor told Entertainment Weekly that Deadpool 2, which is coming to Irish cinemas on May 15th, could very well be the superhero’s last solo outing. 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."

Mind you, this doesn’t mean that Deadpool won’t appear in future X-Force movies. As Reynolds clarifies, "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.

"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."

Deadpool 3 was put into development nearly two years ago, but much has changed since then, most especially with the studio that Deadpool hails from, 20th Century Fox, being purchased by Disney. There’s even been talk of integrating Deadpool into the MCU.
