Part of the appeal of Deadpool is how sweary it is.
Fans can breath a sigh of relief after Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirmed that the third instalment will also be Rated R.
Feige was talking about the new Marvel Cinematic Universe TV series WandaVision, which debuts on Disney Plus this week. He was asked by Collider about Deadpool 3.
Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin have been asked to work on the script, it was revealed back in November. Feige confirmed it will be R Rated and set within the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
We’ve got a while to wait just yet though as filming won’t start until at least 2022.
Feige confirmed: ‘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,’ Feige added.
Reynolds has three films due for release this year – Free Guy (May 21), The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard (August 20) and Netflix’s Red Notice. He’s also scheduled to star in produce a new adaptation of the board game Clue, which may also be an R-rated project as well.
When Deadpool was released it took critics by surprise, grossing $782.6 million worldwide. It soon became the highest-grossing R-rated movie of all time.
It’s rare for sequels to ever do as well, but the 2018 followup Deadpool 2 took in just over $785 million. It set a new record, which stayed in place until Joker earned $1.074 billion worldwide.
Fans were worried after franchise distributor, 20th Century Fox, was acquired by Disney. Disney rarely releases R-rated fare and Deadpool fans were concerned they would see a watered-down part three.
Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds reacted to the news in his usual deadpan style. Of course, he had to tweet about it. He shared a headline from IGN reporting on the news, joking, ‘Full disclosure: I showed them Spiderman 1 & 2 and told them it was Deadpool 1 & 2. #Deadpool3.’
Fans have been sharing their hopes for the third film.
Fans are hoping to see many of the characters that were introduced in Deadpool 2.
