Reynolds went on to explain the future of Deadpool and what audiences can hope to see down the line. "I would love to see a song-and-dance number in a Deadpool movie. Four years ago, 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." He continued, "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."

It has yet to be announced, but it looks like Reynolds is considering making a Christmas-themed Deadpool movie. This wouldn't be the first time he's done something like this. In 2018, he released a PG-13 holiday version of Deadpool 2 with the new title, Once Upon a Deadpool.

We are still determining if Deadpool will be made into a Christmas film in the coming years.
