Marvel fans can be happy: The MCU boss Kevin Feige himself confirmed in an interview what the plan for “Deadpool 3” looks like officially.
When Disney bought the film division of the media company 21st Century Fox in March 2019, the film rights to the X-Men and the Fantastic Four were returned to Marvel Studios. And with the X-Men also Deadpool, the mercenary with the loose mouth.
The question rightly arose whether and to what extent Disney wants to integrate the wild anti-hero into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The former Disney CEO Robert Allen “Bob” Iger emphasized back then that Deadpool would not be trimmed for a low age rating. But the studio wanted to reserve the right not to include Deadpool in the family-friendly MCU.
As early as November 2020 it was revealed that Ryan Reynolds ‘ plans for ” Deadpool 3 ” had finally picked up speed – with a focus on an R-Rating, which in this country will probably correspond to an age rating of 16 and over. In other words, Deadpool is allowed to shoot around to their hearts’ content and mood, rivet downloads of bad boys and girls, and does not have to hold back verbally. That in itself is fantastic news for fans who crowned Kevin Feige, Marvel Studios’ CEO and COO of Marvel Entertainment. Feige told Collider that “Deadpool 3″ will definitely be part of the MCU:
“There will be an R rating and we are currently working on a script that will be overseen by Ryan Reynolds. There is no filming this year. Ryan is a very busy and very successful actor. We have some things that we have already announced that we need to do now, but it’s exciting that it has finally started. Again, [he’s] a very unusual character within the MCU, and Ryan is a force of nature. It’s just breathtaking to see how he brings this character to life. ”
The script for “Deadpool 3” is written by the “Bob’s Burgers” authors.
What a surprise – Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are not responsible for the script, but a completely different duo: Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin. The sisters were responsible for the wacky animation series “ Bob’s Burgers ”, for example. This is surprising insofar as there was nothing to suggest that there should be a change of authors. Reese and Wernick had already written the scripts for the first two “Deadpool” films and were previously optimistic about “Deadpool 3”.
It is said, however, that the Molyneux sisters had a better idea. And if that’s true, the fans can only please. After all, the MCU debut of Deadpool should be as bombastic as possible. But since filming will probably only start in 2022, a theatrical release before 2023 can no longer be expected. But until then there will be quite a bit of film and series feed for Marvel fans anyway because phase 4 of the MCU already has a number of highlights in store.
