Deadpool 3 Is Still Going Strong
Screenwriters for Deadpool 3 are confident that the third upcoming film, directed by Shawn Levy, will still go R-Rated just like before.
Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who writes the third film, will not change the overall tone from the other two films in the franchise. This movie will also mark the first from 20th Century Fox after the Fox-Disneymerge.
“It’s a thrill,” Reese said about the Ryan Reynolds-fronted franchise entering the Marvel fold. “It’s an absolute thrill to have the band back together, to have a new backdrop in the MCU with new characters, new villains, that kind of thing. You know, it’s never a marriage we necessarily saw coming — Fox and Disney, that was an external thing [separate] from our storytelling process. But we’re absolutely finding the serendipity and the gold in that situation, or we’re trying to.”
Reese has said that fans don’t need to worry that the film will become a family film just because it’s under Disney flagship.
“They’ve been very supportive with regard to that,” Reese said. “Now when it comes to a particular joke, if we cross a line, maybe we’ll hear at some point, ‘Maybe not that joke.’ But I think they’ve been incredibly supportive of what we’re doing, because obviously we were doing it separate from them for a long time, and I think they’ve seen the success and they’ve had their own even greater success. So hopefully it’ll be a marriage made in heaven. But we’ve definitely got their support, and that’s a great thing to feel.”
The pair has written Netflix Spiderhead with Chris Hemsworth and Shawn Levy has also directed Free Guy and The Adam Project. Tim Miller directed the first and David Leith did the second film with Ryan Reynolds.
