The creator of Deadpool 3, the highly anticipated sequel to the 2018 hit film, recently shared exciting news on social media. As fans eagerly await the return of Ryan Reynolds as the Merc with a Mouth, this announcement marks a significant milestone in the buildup to the movie’s release.

The Road to Deadpool 3

Ever since the success of Deadpool 2, fans have been eagerly awaiting the next installment of the franchise. With Ryan Reynolds reprising his role, the anticipation has only grown. Notably, the movie will also see the return of Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine, promising an epic showdown between these iconic characters.

Merchandise Teasers

Recently, on X (formerly known as Twitter), two new listings surfaced, revealing the first-ever merchandise for Deadpool 3: a pair of Funko Pop! figures. These listings, however, kept details about the movie and the characters shrouded in secrecy. Each figure was labeled under the film’s working title, “Tidal Wave,” leaving fans guessing about their identities.

Despite the lack of specific information, Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld couldn’t contain his excitement. He posted and teased, “The hype begins…” on social media, building up anticipation among fans.

Rob Liefeld’s Teasers

In a previous interview, Liefeld hinted at having insider information about the movie that would “melt your face off.” While remaining tight-lipped about specific details, he did confirm his involvement in discussions with Marvel Studios regarding Deadpool 3. This collaboration with the studio suggests that fans can expect exciting developments in the upcoming film.

What to Expect from Deadpool 3 Funkos

While the recently revealed Funko Pop! figures remain enigmatic, it’s safe to assume that the first two releases will feature Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool and Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine. Beyond that, the possibilities are vast. Former X-Men characters, such as Jennifer Garner’s Elektra or unexpected surprise appearances, could make their way into the Funko Pop! lineup.

Release Date Uncertainty

Unfortunately, due to ongoing strikes in Hollywood, Deadpool 3 has been removed from Disney‘s release calendar, resulting in delays. The exact release date remains uncertain until the strikes are resolved. Despite these setbacks, fans’ excitement for the movie continues to build, ensuring that the hype remains undiminished.

The unveiling of Deadpool 3 merchandise, albeit shrouded in mystery, marks an exciting development for fans eagerly awaiting the movie’s release. With the return of beloved characters and the involvement of the creator, Rob Liefeld, the anticipation for Deadpool 3 is at an all-time high. While delays may test fans’ patience, there’s no doubt that the excitement surrounding this threequel will only continue to grow.
