Kanye West wants in on the soundtrack for future Deadpool sequels, but Ryan Reynolds doesn't seem to be too keen about it. The Merc With A Mouth will have to learn to share screen time for the time being as Wade Wilson's next appearance will be on Drew Goddard's X-Force spinoff where Reynolds' Wade Wilson will reunite with Josh Brolin's Cable and Zazie Beetz' Domino. Plot details for the offshoot are still scant at the moment so who knows what state Deadpool will be in by the time he sets off for his third standalone movie? Even now, the given threequel is already garnering interest not just from fans, but for other personalities who wants to be featured in the Fox's R-rated franchise.
While Deadpool's soundtrack feels a lot less curated than say, Guardians of the Galaxy or even Suicide Squad (which copied GOTG in this respect), fans are digging all the musical choices that Ryan and his team have made with the last two films. They've embraced a varied mix of genres and singers, from DMX's “X Gon' Give It To Ya” to Alicia Morton's "Tomorrow." And if Kanye gets what he wants, one (or two) of his songs might end up in Deadpool 3's official track listing.
Kanye took it to his official Twitter account to reveal that he's a massive Deadpool fan. Citing how innovative both of the films' writing was and saying how fascinated he's with all the 4th wall breaking in the Fox projects, the rapper offered to work with Reynolds and his team for the soundtrack of future sequels. While his fans may be excited about the idea of Yeezy lending his services to a superhero flick, Ryan, himself, didn't seem to be impressed, responding to Kanye's offer with a subtle shade. Check out the tweets below:
Obviously, having Celine Dion to record a film's official soundtrack is a massive honor, especially since the Canadian songstress doesn't really dabble much on TV or film OST anymore after she did Titanic's iconic "My Heart Will Go On." But even if Dion didn't agree to sing Deadpool 2's Ashes, there is actually another reason why Ryan won't jump on Kanye's offer and it involves Taylor Swift. Ryan and wife, Blake Lively, are actually good friends with the "Bad Blood" singer, whom Kanye, and wife, Kim Kardashian, have a long convoluted conflict which started all the way back in 2008. In fact, the latest Fox superhero flick even included an easily missable Swift Easter Egg.
Does this mean, however, that Kanye will never record a Deadpool track? No. Anything is possible in Hollywood, and if the 41-year-old has a solid song for any of the follow-up films moving forward, it's difficult to think that Ryan and his team won't contemplate about it. But if it happens, at least it won't be in the foreseeable future.
