The script contains melodies and a dance number in a Deadpool movie. He said, “I would love to see a song and dance number in a Deadpool movie. Four years ago, [Deadpool co-writers] Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick, and I wrote a Christmas movie starring Deadpool. But it got lost in the shuffle of Disney acquiring Fox, and it never got made.
A Deadpool Christmas Movie Is Possible in the Future
Reynolds still believes that one day he could make the Deadpool Christmas movie, but “It’s not a musical.”
“Maybe one day we’ll get to make that movie. It’s not a musical, but it’s a full Deadpool Christmas movie. So one day.” he added.
