Deadpool & Wolverine: The Dynamic Duo Returns!

Ryan Reynolds is back in action as Deadpool, this time teaming up with Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine in the highly anticipated Deadpool & Wolverine. But before this epic collaboration came to be, Reynolds had a few wild ideas for Deadpool 3 that never made it to the big screen.

In a candid chat with Entertainment Weekly, published on June 2, Reynolds, known for his witty charm and comedic prowess, shared some of the quirky concepts that were considered for the third installment.

The Rashomon-Inspired Plot

One of the scrapped ideas was a Rashomon-style story. This version of Deadpool 3 would have examined three different viewpoints on a single event, drawing inspiration from the classic 1950 Japanese film. Reynolds, 47, fondly recalled this unique narrative approach, which would have added a complex layer to the Deadpool universe.

The Indie Road Trip Comedy

Another intriguing concept Reynolds discussed was an indie road trip comedy. Picture this: a $5 or $6 million budget, minimal special effects, and a lot of dialogue. Reynolds envisioned a “talkie-talkie road trip” featuring Deadpool and Dopinder, played by Karan Soni.

“It was just a talkie-talkie road trip with me and Dopinder and some of the things we collected and saw along the way,” Reynolds explained. “It wasn’t meant to be an event movie. If we’re on our way to Point C, it was meant to just get us to Point B. That was the weirdest one. I liked it. I thought it was kind of fun.”

Why These Ideas Were Scrapped

While both ideas were creative and unconventional, they didn’t make the final cut. Instead, the decision was made to pair Deadpool with Wolverine, promising a blockbuster hit filled with action, humor, and the unique chemistry between Reynolds and Jackman.
