Previously we talked about the status of ‘Deadpool 3’ and how it would likely stay with the other films and have an ‘R’ rating. Now Kevin Feige has confirmed this to indeed be true.
In and interview with Collider, Feige confirmed that there would be a third ‘Deadpool’ installment, it would be rated ‘R’ and it will be part of the MCU.
As mentioned in an article we did a couple of months ago, Molyneux sisters Lizzy Molyneux-Loeglin and Wendy Molyneux (Bob’s Burgers) are scripting the new film with Ryan Reynolds “overseeing” it. However the filming won’t be happening until next year at the earliest.
Kevin Feige told Collider:
“It will be rated R and we are working on a script right now, and Ryan’s overseeing a script right now… It will not be [filming] this year. Ryan is a very busy, very successful actor. We’ve got a number of things we’ve already announced that we now have to make, but it’s exciting for it to have begun. Again, a very different type of character in the MCU, and Ryan is a force of nature, which is just awesome to see him bring that character to life.”
Likely we won’t see a movie for a couple of years, but Collider does mention that it’s possible we will see him appear in other MCU shows or films as a cameo. Which makes sense as they want to establish him as part of the MCU now.
I’m just glad we aren’t losing Deadpool and he isn’t going to be watered down for Disney’s ownership of Marvel. That’s something fans of the franchise were very worried about. Since Reynolds is heavily involved it eases the mind a bit. Let’s just hope Disney doesn’t mess with what works too much on this one.
