The writers of Deadpool 3 have shed some light on the status of that project and confirm that the current plan is for it to follow X-Force. Will the Disney/Fox merger put an end to that, though?

Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick wrote both Deadpool and Deadpool 2 so it's no great surprise that they're returning for the planned third instalment. However, they've revealed in a new interview that Fox is planning to release X-Force first (which debunks theories that Deadpool 3 will basically be Deadpool: X-Force). 

"According to the chronology that we’ve established, X-Force will be next, before Deadpool 3," Reese explains. "It’s a bit of the ‘Iron Man 1, Iron Man 2, The Avengers, Iron Man 3’ model, in that sense. X-Force isn’t being written by us. It’s being written and directed by Drew Goddard, or at least that’s the plan right now. We’re not involved with that one."

"We do anticipate there will be a Deadpool 3 at some point," he continued, "but it’s just a little
premature, because it will definitely take a backseat to X-Force for the time being." Honestly, talking about both projects is a little premature at this point as it's hard to imagine X-Force will start shooting before the Disney/Fox merger is complete in March. 

"We’re constantly in touch with Ryan, and we’re always throwing ideas back and forth via text and phone conversations," Wernick added. "So, it’s always at the front of our minds. We’ll get there when the time is right, but as of right now, X-Force is next up."

The Deadpool franchise will more than likely live on under the watchful eye of Marvel Studios but whether or not they'll want to make Goddard's X-Force movie is another matter altogether.
