Very soon Disney is going to release The Guardians of the Galaxy: Holiday Special as an MCU Special Presentation. If Ryan Reynolds‘ words are to be believed, then he along with Rhett Reese, and Paul Wernick planned something similar for the character of Wade Wilson long ago.

In an interview given to Big Issue, the 46-year-old actor revealed that he is still unhappy due to the Disney-Fox deal ruining his Deadpool project. He would still love to see a dance and a song number in a Deadpool movie.

“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.”

Further Ryan Reynolds added that he still hopes such a movie to be made on the character. He is up for a full-length movie related to Christmas and Deadpool.


“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.”

Although Disney broke The Adam Project actor’s dream Deadpool project, they made it sure to bring back the character in the MCU canon with a third installment.
