Deadpool, the quick-witted, regenerating mutant superhero, will be returning in Deadpool 3 shortly. Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, the film’s writers, have finally provided an update on the sequel, which will be produced in collaboration with Marvel Studios and set in the MCU. Here’s how Deadpool 3 will poke fun at the Marvel Cinematic Universe, disclosed by the Deadpool creators:
All we know about Deadpool 3:
Kevin Feige, the head of Marvel Studios, previously stated that Deadpool 3 is the sole R-rated Marvel film in production at the House of Mouse. Although production has yet to begin, a recent tweet from the official Deadpool Twitter account shows that the project is in the making! Deadpool 3 will be directed by Shawn Levy, who previously collaborated with Reynolds on Free Guy and The Adam Project. Disney has announced a number of forthcoming Marvel film release dates, with some films receiving specific dates and others being linked to Marvel films. While no precise date has been set, production is expected to begin in 2022. As a result, 2023 is most probably the release window, and the Disney/Marvel schedule’s open date of July 28, 2023, makes perfect sense for this film.
What the main writers revealed about the film:
As a result of Disney’s acquisition of Fox, all Marvel characters are now united under one umbrella, and Deadpool can now go about his wacky behavior within the MCU. Reese and Wernick are delighted to be there as well. When asked about their new Marvel home, Reese says “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”.
While talking about the possibility of discovering things to make fun of in the MCU, both Reese and Wernick exclaim, “Oh yeah!” in the same way they delicately teased the X-Men, Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine, Reynolds’ catastrophic gig as Green Lantern in the DC universe, and a slew of other pop culture icons in the first two Deadpool films.
“Don’t worry about that,” adds Reese. “They’ve [Marvel] been very supportive with regard to that. 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”.
