On Twitter, Dylan Beattie pointed out that Disney’s ownership of Deadpool, along with Star Wars, Mary Poppins, and other properties opens the door to a variety of beloved characters appearing in the next Deadpool movie.
Also, can we have a bit in the next Deadpool movie where Deadpool figures out that Disney now own the IP to so many franchised characters that legally there’s no reason he can’t rope in Wolverine, Chewbacca and Mary Poppins for the big showdown in the final reel?— Dylan Beattie ?? @ ???

So… here’s the premise for #Deadpool3….
Deadpool 2 starts off with Wade and Vanessa deciding to start a family. The new movie takes place perhaps eight years later; they have two kids, a boy and a girl, and they realize, they need to hire a nanny. And it’s Mary Poppins.
The overall plot is still hazy, but a few highlights spring to mind… The “Mary is cruder/more violent than Wade” twists are too obvious. But mid-movie, the entire cast breaks into a musical number? That’s got potential.
I’m picturing a general melee with both sides fighting, and singing at the same time. In the midst of this mayhem, Poppins moves around in her usual “practically perfect” calm and collected way, moving fragile items moments before a body flies through that spot.
In the middle of the fight, Deadpool picks up a priceless vase to hit someone over the head.
The music halts as Poppins glances sharply at him.
“Oh. Sorry Ms. Poppins.”
Deadpool puts the vase down and shoots/decapitates the thug instead.
“Much better. Carry on.”
The music and singing resumes.
At the end of the song, Deadpool addresses the camera.
“I know what you’re thinking. How can we have a Mary Poppins scene without a Dick Van Dyke cameo? It’s like he wouldn’t return my calls.”
Dick Van Dyke is in the background, waving to the audience, a finger on his lips.
