“You know, I just hope they can get it together,” Liefeld said in an interview with Variety at the premiere of The Rise of Skywalker. “Fans want it. Fans want to see it. The whole thing about Deadpool is that culture moves so fast now and two years ago feels like twenty. There were two R-rated movies — and they were R-rated movies — that together made $1.2 billion and yes, I looked at those and counted them up.”
He adds, “After the first weekend, I called Ryan and said ‘It’s a billion-dollar franchise!’ We were very excited. So I think Deadpool 3…X-Force …inevitable. I mean, come on. Josh Brolin, Ryan Reynolds, and now with Disney. How is that not the biggest thing, right?”
As mentioned above, Disney and Marvel are yet to reveal their official plans for the franchise. However, the first Deadpool movie grossed a staggering $783.1 million worldwide, while Deadpool 2 found similar success, earning $785 million and proving that they have a hit on its hands should they decide to continue the series.
