The Fox superhero movie franchise Deadpool, now owned by Disney, is trending on social media, but not due to any updates on its sequel.

p>After a turbulent period of delays, digital releases, and more in the wake of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, companies like Warner Bros. are finally starting to film projects like Denis Villeneuve's Dune again thanks to waning restrictions. Some may be curious as to whether this return to filming has anything to do with Deadpool 3 currently trending on Twitter, but fans should not hold their breath.

Deadpool 3 is trending, alongside other potential sequels in movie franchises such as John Wick 4 and the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Thor: Love and Thunder, thanks to a hypothetical posted by entertainment news website Discussing Film. In its tweet, the site asks fans to choose three movies out of a list of 10, with the rest being potentially cancelled. Other projects listed include DCEU's The Flash, Sony's Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2, and Indiana Jones 5.

This is not the first time that Twitter's trending page has featured popular culture subjects due to hypothetical questions gaining traction rather than any official announcements being made. Earlier this month Pokemon's Dynamax phenomenon was trending not because of the DLC expansion for Pokemon Sword and Shield being released, but because fans were voting for it to be removed as a series gimmick.

As the world slowly transitions into re-opening after coronavirus shutdowns, the movie industry has had some growing pains. Originally the theater chain AMC announced masks would not be mandatory to attend showings, but changed its guidelines after that received backlash.

Deadpool 3 may be in development at Disney.
