The Deadpool franchise has been a huge commercial and critical success since the first installment was released in 2016.

What TJ Miller and Ryan Reynolds Reconcile Means for Deadpool 3
For better or for worse, on-set feuds can have an effect on the outcome of an upcoming project. While the negative press can certainly create more buzz around a movie, it can also run the risk of it not happening at all. For example, around the supposed voltage, press the don’t worry baby set may have indirectly contributed to the film’s box office success. On the other hand, the very public fight between Sarah Jessica Parker and Kim Cattrall may have been the deciding factor in taking away a third Sex and the city continuation. In addition, the dissonance between fiction and reality can come as a shock to audiences who have become familiar with, or even love, an on-screen friendship.
Happy, Deadpool fans can rest assured that all is well between Deadpool and Weasel, both on screen and in real life. While Miller is unlikely to appear in Deadpool 3, the chances of a surprise return are slightly higher now that the actor and Reynolds are on good terms. While the reconciliation is still fresh, Miller may reconsider his earlier promise to never work with Reynolds again, and audiences can hope to see the comic book friendship on screen again.
