Deadpool 3

Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin, Emmy-winning authors, have recently been roped in to write Deadpool 3. Ryan Reynolds, the Hollywood actor who played the lead role in the previous films, is also expected to return as the Merc With a Mouth. Following Disney's acquisition of 21st Century Fox in March 2019, Ryan Reynolds' Wade Wilson alias Deadpool moved to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

According to Deadline, Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin have been tapped by Ryan Reynolds and Disney-owned Marvel Studios to write the script for 'Deadpool 3,' with Reynolds reprising his favourite fan role as the foul-mouthed superhero. The Molyneux Sisters are the makers of the new Fox animated series titled The Great North, a gig that they picked up after scoring Emmy as writers and executive producers of Fox's much-acclaimed show Bob's Burgers.

It is also reported that over the past month, writer meetings were held with Ryan Reynolds recently meeting with a handful of writers to hear their pitch for the next installment. Ultimately, the studio and Reynolds saw the take on the sisters as the best match for what they needed. The film is still in early production, but the hiring of the Molyneux sisters marks the first significant step towards the next 'Deadpool' film being made.
