It's unknown why Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are not returning, who along with Reynolds wrote the first two movies, but according to Deadline, it's said that writer meetings have taken place over the past month with Reynolds recently meeting with a handful of writers to hear pitches for the next installment.
Some excellent news today for fans of Deadpool, with reports that the third movie is pushing ahead, and the writing team behind the beloved Bob's Burgers are involved. The article says that in the end, Marvel Studios and Ryan Reynolds saw the sisters' take as the ideal fit for what they wanted for Deadpool 3.
Deadline reports that Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin will write Deadpool 3, which sees Ryan Reynolds set to reprise his role as the raunchy superhero.
It's now unclear as to whether director David Leitch will return to helm the third installment in the franchise, with sources reporting that given his busy schedule through 2021, it's unlikely but that the door remains open should he become available, though no word has been given as to why Deadpool 1 and 2 writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are not returning to pen the latest outing.
Last December, Reynolds assured us that work was already underway on Deadpool 3 over at Marvel Studios, saying it felt "crazy" to be working with the comics giant. "We're over at Marvel, which is the big leagues all of a sudden".
The duo are also writers and executive producers on the long-running series Bob's Burgers, having won an Emmy Award for their efforts back in 2017.
