DEADPOOL 2 Director David Leitch Rumored To Return To Helm A Third Instalment

With the Disney/Fox merger now official, we don't even know if X-Force will happen but a new report claims that the filmmaker is attached to helm a third instalment of the Merc with the Mouth's franchise.

We've previously heard that X-Force (which is being written and directed by Drew Goddard) will basically be Deadpool 3 but it's hard to imagine the Merc with the Mouth's solo adventures coming to an end. Now, rumour has it that David Leitch is already attached to another movie for the character and that does make sense seeing as the filmmaker previously said he wants to return to the series.

However, while Disney boss Bob Iger has said that the R-Rated Deadpool franchise could live on in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we don't know how realistic that is or whether or not Kevin Feige and company would reboot Wade Wilson (even if that means saying goodbye to the actor synonymous with the hero). It's also presumably Fox that wants to bring Leitch back but Marvel may not agree! 

For now, everything is very much up in the air and unless Deadpool 3 is shooting by the time the merger is finished, it may not happen. Leitch returning would be no bad thing, of course, but we'll just have to wait and see because this is very much a rumour right now. What do you guys think the future holds in store for the Merc with the Mouth? As always, let us know your thoughts in the usual place.
