We spent a long time wondering what the plan for the Merc with the Mouth in the Marvel Cinematic Universe might be, but it was recently confirmed that Bob's Burgers scribes Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin are penning Deadpool 3's screenplay. There's no word on a release date yet, but Ryan Reynolds will return as Wade Wilson for this shared world's first R-Rated adventure.
Now, Reynolds has shared a photo in his Instagram Stories that's got Deadpool fans very intrigued.
As you can see, the actor posted an image of the hero's mask in a bag, leaving us to speculate about what he's been up to. While we're expecting Deadpool's costume to undergo some changes in the threequel once Marvel Studios talented team of concept artists get to take a crack at the anti-hero, it seems Reynolds may have taken his classic mask to a meeting of some sort.
It's worth noting that there have been comic books revolving around Deadpool's severed head in the past, so there's a slim chance this could be the actor's attempt to tease his sequel plans. After all, it would be pretty cool to follow a popular MCU hero (in a desolate future?) forced to transport Wade's head for some reason; for now, that's just speculation on our part, of course.
Deadpool 3 has yet to receive a release date from Marvel Studios.
