There is a lot you can accuse Disney of, but ignoring surefire ways to make more money is not one of them.

In an interview with Collider, Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, confirmed not only that work on the third installment is underway, but also that it will be a part of the MCU.

Feige added that actor Ryan Reynolds, who will reprise the leading role, is also working with sisters Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin and Wendy Molyneux on the script.

"It will not be [filming] this year", Feige said. The first Marvel Disney+ series, WandaVision, will debut on the streaming service on January 15th.

Marvel is owned by Disney, the parent company of ABC News and "Good Morning America". While speaking with Collider, Feige said, "We're interested in the political paranoia aspect of Secret Invasion and really showcasing the stars with Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn, two awesome actors that you want to have in any series, and we're very lucky to have them for that".

The first Deadpool movie arrived in 2016, and quickly became the highest-grossing R-rated movie of all time, making almost $782 million at the box office.

Marvel Studios has its hands full production-wise, as the team are in the midst of filming Thor 4 and Spider-Man 3, and this year will also begin filming Doctor Strange 2, Black Panther 2, and Captain Marvel 2.

The only post-2022 MCU release confirmed so far is Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 for 2023, but we know that Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, Fantastic Four, and X-Men, as well as all the recently revealed Disney+ series like Blade, Secret Invasion, and Armor Wars are still in the pipeline as well.
