Deadpool 3 Will be Rated R and Be Part of the MCU
President of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige announced in an interview that Deadpool 3 would be Rated-R and is moving forward. The interview was about the upcoming streaming release of WandaVision on Disney’s streaming service Disney+.
Deadpool-star Ryan Reynolds is overseeing the script at Marvel and by implication, Deadpool will now be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Because of the pandemic and Reynolds schedule, production on Deadpool 3 will not begin until 2022.
Feige said this during the interview:
“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.”
Keeping the Deadpool franchise Rated-R is a wise move on Disney’s part. Disney would have been fools to mess with a winning formula, a formula that the Deadpool franchise has cultivated. Coming out of the pandemic and things opening up again, Disney will need all the prime assets that they can get their hands on to get their gigantic money-making-machine going again. A Rated-R Deadpool 3 will help in that endeavor. It will also serves to broaden the scope of the MCU.
