Everyone’s favourite sarcastic, foul mouthed MCU superhero, Deadpool, will soon be back on screens for another bout of his witticisms. The third instalment in the Deadpool film series is currently in development. But ever since Disney acquired 20th Century Studios in 2019, fans were worried about whether or not the acquisition by the former would affect the character. Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who are writing the upcoming threequel, recently set the record straight and allayed fans’ fears.
In conversation with The Playlist, the writers revealed that there were obviously differences between the two ‘regimes’ referring to Disney and Fox Studios. Although both of the companies were used to doing things their way, the writers had received nothing but encouragement and supoort from Marvel, who gave them the greenlight for letting ‘Deadpool be Deapool’. Reese spoke about how Marvel had tried to help out with all the resources at their disposal and had assured the writers that the threequel will not feature a ‘Disney-fied Deadpool’.
Reese also confirmed that the upcoming film would be rated R. “They’re not gonna mess with the tone”, he said, although the writer agreed that there was a slight chance something might happen in the future. But for the moment, the writers were moving forward under the assumption that the film would be rated R, saying that they would like it to be that way.
Ryan Reynolds will return to reprise his role as the popular character.The upcoming film will be directed by Shawn Levy, who has previously collaborated with Reynolds on films such as Free Guy(2021) and The Adam Project (2022). In addition to writing the upcoming film, Reese and Wernick had also written the first two Deadpool films as well.
