    Ryan Reynolds Revealed The Reason Why His "Deadpool" Christmas Movie Never Got Made

    But fear not, Deadpool fans — you still might get a chance to see your favorite guy in a Santa hat soon enough.

    You know Deadpool. You love Deadpool.

    You've probably seen both Deadpool movies at this point — and maybe you've even seen Once Upon a Deadpool, the toned-down edit of Deadpool 2 that features Deadpool wearing a Santa hat.

    Once Upon a Deadpool

    Well, according to Mr. Deadpool himself — Ryan Reynolds, that is — there was almost a whole freakin' Christmas-themed Deadpool movie. But, it never happened.

    In a new interview with Big Issue, Ryan explained that he wrote an entire Deadpool Christmas movie back in 2018, along with co-writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.

    "But it got lost in the shuffle of Disney acquiring Fox, and it never got made,” he explained. That's a shame!

    But Ryan isn't giving up hope just yet, and he believes that the project could soon return, just like Santa on his sleigh.


    “Maybe one day, we’ll get to make that movie," he said. "It’s not a musical, but it’s a full Deadpool Christmas movie. So, one day.”
