Molyneux sisters to write Deadpool 3
The writer duo is best known for their Emmy Award-winning work on Fox's Bob's Burgers
Emmy-winning writers Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin and Wendy Molyneux have been roped in to write Deadpool 3, with Hollywood star Ryan Reynolds set to return as the Merc With a Mouth.
Reynolds' Wade Wilson aka Deadpool moved into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) after Disney acquired 21st Century Fox in March 2019. Deadpool 3 is the first of the trilogy to be handled by Marvel Studios and its president Kevin Feige, officially bringing the character into MCU.
Reynolds, who is also on board as a producer on the franchise, had confirmed late last year that a third Deadpool movie was in the works at Marvel Studios. According to reports, the Canadian star has been actively involved in choosing the Molyneux sisters to write the film's script.
The writer duo is best known for their Emmy Award-winning work on Fox's Bob's Burgers. They also serve as creators, showrunners, and executive producers on the studios' animated comedy, The Great North.
