X-Force And Deadpool 3 Are Being Designed To Be Entirely Different

Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick, and Ryan Reynolds have repeatedly stressed their desire to keep the Deadpool movies unlike other comic book blockbusters, in that the nature of the character demands small scale stories rather than world-saving adventures. This will change a bit by the time he's ready to suit up as a member of X-Force, but Rhett Reese also noted that they are simultaneously developing Deadpool 3 to directly contrast the size of that project. Discussing the introduction of Cable and Domino to the Deadpool family, Reese explained,

It's working in an expansive way towards X-Force, which will really be more of an ensemble. But then that will allow us to do both an X-Force movie and a Deadpool 3, which actually contracts back down... So I think we'll be able to take two paths. One is where we're launching something bigger, but then another where we're contracting and staying personal and small. So I think best of all worlds, really.

To apply yet another colloquialism, this is a clear cut example of Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick having their cake and eating it too. They certainly recognize how fun it would be seeing a fuck-up character like Deadpool trying to save the world (as many comic book writers/artists have over the years), but they also don't have to betray the specialty brand that he brings to his own solo movies. Naturally, we fully expect that Deadpool 3 will directly reference how different it will be from the team-up project.

With Deadpool 2 still not having a release date, we don't quite know when we will next see the eponymous maniac back on the big screen, but production is expected to start before the end of the year. In the meantime, fans can go see the latest work from Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick on the big screen this weekend, as Life arrives in theaters this Friday.
