The Excitement Builds for Deadpool 3
The director of Deadpool 3 posted on X (formerly known as Twitter) to announce the release of new movie merchandise.
The highly anticipated third installment, featuring Ryan Reynolds as the titular character, has been in development since the release of Deadpool 2 in 2018.
In addition to the return of the Merc with a Mouth, Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine will also make an appearance. Prior to the SAG-AFTRA strike and the Writer’s Guild of America strike, the two were photographed fighting in a sandy location.
While the release of the movie is still a ways off, fans can look forward to gaining a more in-depth understanding of what the project has to offer.
Fans Are Urged to Get Hyped for Deadpool 3
On X (formerly known as Twitter), two new listings revealed the first-ever merchandise for Deadpool 3, a pair of Funko Pop! figures.
Unfortunately, the listings on Amazon UK for the upcoming Ryan Reynold’s movie did not provide any specific information regarding the Funko Pop figures associated with it.
The listings only displayed basic silhouettes of the standard Funko Pops, with each marked under the working title of the film, Tidal Wave. Additionally, no character names were associated with either figurine.
Nonetheless, Rob Liefeld, the creator of Deadpool, took it upon himself to generate buzz for the film by posting and teasing, “The hype begins…” During a prior interview with Nuke the Fridge, Liefeld claimed to possess knowledge about the movie that “will melt your face off.”
“The stuff I know it will melt your face, alright? That’s all I’m going to say, it’ll melt your face!”
When asked if any legacy X-Men characters would be showing up, all the creator had to say were good words regarding Marvel Studios asking for his input about some of their decisions for Deadpool 3:
“… Look, here’s the deal, guys. You know what, I was very honored. [Marvel Studios President Kevin Fiege] reached out to me late last summer wanted my input on some decisions. Then, we had a follow-up meeting with the producers. I was just honored that they wanted to have my input, and they would say, ‘We’re considering a lot of different roads, a lot of different paths.’”
Back in July, Rob Liefeld responded to a fan on social media who was worried about all the surprises being ruined. The creator assured him that “there is no way [they won’t be] surprised” when the movie finally lands.
Which Deadpool 3 Funkos Will Release?
Although the first two Funko figures released for Deadpool 3 reveal little, it’s promising that fans may soon see more merchandise from the project.
The initial Funko figures will likely feature Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool and Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. Following them, a variety of characters may be introduced, including former X-Men character Jennifer Garner’s Elektra, a TVA-associated figure, or a secret character not yet revealed to the public.
Unfortunately, due to ongoing Hollywood strikes, Deadpool 3 has been removed from Disney’s release calendar and delayed.
The release date remains uncertain until the strike concludes. Nonetheless, it’s safe to say that fan excitement for the movie will continue to grow despite any setbacks.
