Deadpool 3 R-Rating, MCU Status Confirmed By Marvel Studios
While the COVID-19 global pandemic largely stalled Marvel Studios from releasing content and halted production on future projects, 2021 seems to show promise for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as several are set to resume very soon. Following Disney’s acquisition of Fox, one aspect MCU fans have been eager to hear about has been the potential for appearances from Marvel characters previously left exclusive to 20th Century Fox. Anticipated among them has been the return of the Deadpool series, with Deadpool 3 confirmed to be in the works with star Ryan Reynolds and a pair of writers from Bob’s Burgers set to pen the script. Now, Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige has disclosed some new deals, including the Deadpool 3 R-rating status.
In a recent interview with Feige, Collider associate Steve Weintraub revealed new comments from the Marvel Studios head regarding the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Deadpool 3 ahead of Disney Plus’ release of WandaVision later this week. In the exchange, Feige provides an update on Deadpool 3 and confirmed a Deadpool 3 R-rating will indeed be happening as the studio will be aiming for “a very different type of character” as far as the film’s tone. As Feige states:
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.”
With this, alongside the Deadpool 3 R-rating confirmation that fans had been hoping for, Feige also appears to confirm the movie’s status as existing within the continuity of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Considering the character’s ties to the Fox regime, it is not quite clear how this new third movie might play out. It’s possible for the Merc’s new adventure to essentially be a reboot set in the MCU, without including references to the first two Deadpool films. Perhaps Doctor Strange might utilize the multiverse to bring Wade Wilson into the fold? Nevertheless, this will surely excite many Marvel fans, and hopefully, this may finally bring some f-bombs into the MCU.
