Hugh Jackman's Wolverine and Reynolds' Deadpool have already appeared together in X-Men Origins: Wolverine in 2009. However, in the film, Deadpool was not in his regular costume as he was presented as an experiment in the Weapon X program and tasked to kill Wolverine.
Deadpool 3 will also mark as the first film in this franchise which will be produced by Marvel Studios and Kevin Feige. It is yet to be confirmed if the film will be set into the Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline, which includes The Avengers and all the current superheroes in the films produced by Marvel Studios.
Writers of the first two films Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are penning the script for the third film as well. They are currently rumored to have prepared an early draft of the film.
Reynolds' Deadpool is currently rumored to make his official MCU entry in the upcoming Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. After a Deadpool-like figure was spotted on the official poster of Doctor Strange 2, a rumor claimed that he will return for a cameo in the post-credit scene of the film along with Cable and Domino.
