The writers of Deadpool have spoken out about the future of the character on screen. While we’ve known that the film is getting a sequel, it’s looking like the merc with a mouth’s going to get his own trilogy. Not only that, but writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese would also love to see a Wolverine crossover film with the character.

“We’ve come a long way from 2009, when we couldn’t get the movie off the ground ’til now. And to have [this team-up]? It would be amazing to have Hugh resurrect Wolverine in the Deadpool universe, and again, Ryan’s making a hard push to make that happen, and hopefully the public gets behind it and we can all convince Hugh to put the claws on one more time,” said Wernick.

Reese continued by saying the current plan for two more Deadpool films and an X-Force spin-off would also change should a Wolverine crossover occur.

“Yeah, it would, if you think about it. If you’re looking at Deadpool 2, if you’re looking at X-Force, if you’re looking at Deadpool 3, there’s not necessarily room for [another] team-up movie. I think it does create real scheduling and universe issues and something that could be ironed out, but it would need to be ironed out. I don’t think any of us operated under the assumption that it would be even possible to do a Deadpool/Wolverine thing, so we just haven’t planned for it, it’s still not in the plan, but if it were to happen, it would require a hard look at the overall architecture of our storylines.”

So there you have it, should a Wolverine/Deadpool movie occur, it’d throw a bit of a wrench in FOX’s current plan. While they haven’t ruled anything out, a true film starring both characters seems increasingly unlikely.
