Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has confirmed that Ryan Reynold’s Deadpool 3 will be an R-rated Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) film. In a recent interview, Feige said that his team is working on the script and Ryan is overlooking it. However, he also added that the film will not go on floors this year.
R-rated films are those which are restricted, which means children under 17 require accompanying parent or adult guardian to watch the film. This rating means the film contains adult material such as adult activity, harsh language, intense graphic violence, drug abuse and nudity.
In an interview to Collider, Kevin Feige, President of Marvel Studios, said, “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.” He added, “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.”
Sharing a picture of an article about Deadpool 3, Ryan Reynolds wrote, “First order of business: Find the guy who killed Bambi’s mom. #Deadpool3 (sic).”
On Twitter, Ryan Reynolds had a tongue-in-cheek response to the news of Deadpool joining the MCU. He wrote, “Full disclosure: I showed them Spiderman 1 & 2 and told them it was Deadpool 1 & 2.”
Fox’s Deadpool franchise began as a spinoff of the X-Men film series and introduced a new Wade Wilson to the film universe. This one is more faithful to the comic book series created by writer Fabian Nicieza and writer and artist Rob Liefeld. Unlike the majority of the X-Men films, Deadpool and its 2018 sequel were given an R-rating. Both the Deadpool films went on to become some of the highest-grossing films with such a rating, topped only by 2019’s Joker.
Written by Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin, Deadpool 3 stars Ryan Reynolds. The director of the film is yet to be announced. The first film was directed by Tim Miller and the second by David Leitch.
