Several months ago, the film's co-writer Paul Wernick said that he and Rhett Reese were waiting on Marvel bosses to give them the green-light.
Speaking to Den of Geek, Wenick said "We're just waiting for the word from on high."
"There's a lot to be sorted out, like how Deadpool fits into the Marvel Universe with the other characters of the MCU," he added. "Then it's, do the X-Men get in there at some point? Fantastic Four? There's a lot to be sorted out and I think we're all getting a much needed rest from Deadpool - Ryan and us and everybody."

In another interview, Wernick reassured Deadpool fans that the R-rating is here to stay.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, he asserted, "We're always in touch with Ryan [Reynolds, who plays Deadpool].
"I think the party line and truth is we're all still figuring it out. Marvel has promised to continue to let us play in the R-rated Deadpool universe, and the hope is that they will also let us veer into the MCU [Marvel Cinematic Universe] a little bit as well and play in that sandbox," he continued. "Our feeling and Ryan's feeling is that it's got to be the right idea, it's got to be great."
"I think once we collectively agree what idea that great idea is, we'll be off to the races. Ryan's super-busy, we've got a lot of projects lined up, but we wake up thinking about Deadpool, and we go to sleep thinking about Deadpool."
