Much speculation is rife about Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool 3 coming to MCU, now a leak suggests his story will be retconned via Thanos’ snap
Aah, we all are waiting for the Merc with aa Mouth o enter the MCU and start breaking the fourth wall. Not a week pass by with new rumours coming in about Ryan Reynolds’ new MCU deal or Deadpool’s plausible way to enter the Marvel Studios. Now a leak suggests Reynolds has signed a 5 movie deal with Marvel, the announcement will be made on December 10th by Reynolds in character on his social media profiles.
Deadpool 3 is Titled Deadpool: Retcon
This new piece of information originates from 4chan so should be taken with a grain of salt. However, the accuracy of details makes it worth noticing. According to the leak, Deadpool 3 is titled Deadpool: Retcon and will be set during the snap. The movie opens with supporting cast of the Deadpool franchise getting snapped away. Deadpool will assume this happened due to him time traveling at the end of Deadpool 2. The running joke is that Deadpool has always been in the MCU and there’s definitely nothing strange about that. The leak further claims that T-Ray will be the villain of the movie.

Ryan Reynolds and Kevin Feige has decided to make Deadpool 3 a half sequel to the established Deadpool Series and half reboot. Writer Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese will return to write the script along with Reynolds. So this sets Deadpool 3 in the 5 year time gap between the Thanos’ snap and Endgame. Deadpool will be shown trying to fix the snap on his own.
While the plot sounds like a good way to retcon Deadpool’s universe the details leaked further is what grabs our attention.
Ryan Reynolds’ 5 movie Marvel Contract
Reynolds’ MCU deal has been the talk of the town for some time now. Reports suggests it is going to be a bigger one than Robet Downey Jr. Also, there’s the issue of Merc with a Mouth being an R Rated character that MCU still have to deal with. The leak suggests Deadpool 3 will indeed be rated R and will be released under the 20th Century banner. How that works is much similar to Marvel-Sony Spider-Man deal. Deadpool will be canon to MCU but not necessarily vice versa.
The leaker further claimed that Ryan Reynolds has signed a historic 5 movie contract and of course the money is insane! This makes sense given Reynolds might not want to stay attached to a character for more than another decade. MCU actors like Robert Downey Jr and Chris Evans did 9 and 11 films respectively in their time as Iron Man and Captain America.
The leaker says to expect this news by December 10th and it will be announced by Reynolds on Twitter/Instagram, possibly in character as Deadpool.
The accuracy of the date and contract details makes one take another look at the leak. Nonetheless, if any news does come by December 10 then we know to come back and consider this leak else it was a very well made rumour!
