Ryan Reynolds Travels With Deadpool Mask In New Image

Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds posts a mysterious caption-less picture on his travels showing his Deadpool mask stuffed in his backpack.

Ryan Reynolds travels with his Deadpool mask in a new image. The hilarious Merc with a Mouth was last seen on screen in 2018’s Deadpool 2. One year later, Deadpool officially became part of the MCU when Disney acquired 20th Century Fox and the rights to all the X-Men characters. Deadpool 3 has since been officially confirmed by Marvel president Kevin Feige and is the only R-rated MCU project in development.

Fans, Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld, and Ryan Reynolds have all been eager for a third Deadpool movie. Reynolds has always been one of the greatest advocates for Deadpool’s character development. He previously joked about how Deadpool’s first MCU mission would be finding out who killed Bambi’s mom. While skeptics might say it’s highly unlikely that such a plot point would occur, anything goes with the fourth-wall-breaking chaotic bundle of mayhem that is Wade Wilson.

In typical comedic fashion, Reynolds was a total tease during his latest travels. The Deadpool star shared a caption-less image to his Instagram stories, but his travel companion’s presence was loud enough. Check out the fun photo of Reynolds’ coffee and his Deadpool mask below.

The question is, why was Reynolds traveling with the iconic mask? Is he just trolling, or did he bring the mask for Deadpool 3 pre-production talks? Feige did confirm earlier this year that Deadpool 3 wouldn’t start officially filming until at least 2022, but that a script was being written. Reynolds was one of the co-writers for Deadpool 2, but the two confirmed writers for the third film are Bob’s Burgers executive producers and writers Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Logelin.

Although the reason for the presence of the Deadpool mask in Reynolds’ backpack is a mystery, it’s still a fun little treat for fans eager for more Deadpool content. There hasn’t been any official word either on plot details or an official release date for Deadpool 3. Marvel has already announced their full slate of films for the rest of 2021 and 2022, but 2023 only has two MCU movies on the roster so far. Thankfully the Merc with a Mouth will be able to debut in the MCU in all his R-rated glory. The mystery around Deadpool’s official return to the big screen is still shrouded in mystery, and while the wait is understandably frustrating for fans, it’ll be great if the cast and crew take their time to make the long wait worthwhile.
