Ryan Reynolds is prone to all manner of cheeky social media posts, and his latest may be a tease as to when to expect more cinematic Deadpool.

Or it may not be.

Obviously his recent time as Detective Pikachu has rubbed off, as he’s donned the deerstalker again to come up with this wild and woolly investigative work:

While ostensibly an ongoing investigation into who leaked that test footage of Deadpool five years ago, it’s the term ‘Phase 5’ that has our interest piqued.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe ‘Phase 3’ has just wrapped with Spider-Man: Far from Home, and ‘Phase 4’ is set to tide us over the next few years with a wealth of more Marvel goodness.

MCU supremo Kevin Feige has recently announced that the ensuing ‘Phase 5’ will include movies featuring Blade, Fantastic Four and X-Men, as well as Black Panther 2, Captain Marvel 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy 3. Should we add Deadpool 3 to that?

Even if we’re totally barking up the wrong tree, it’s still fun to deep dive into the image and have a look around. Betty White, eh?
