Deadpool 3: Bob's Burgers Writers Tapped For MCU's First R-Rated Film

After almost two years of the highly speculated Disney-Fox merger, Marvel Studios is yet to integrate the Fantastic Four and the X-Men into the gigantic, intertwined Marvel Cinematic Universe. But fortunately, fans of the Merc with the Mouth might be in for a surprise as the latest developments have confirmed that Deadpool 3 is finally in the works.

Earlier this year, reports of Ryan Reynolds meeting with executives of Marvel Studios had surfaced for the third sequel to Deadpool. With rumors of Ryan Reynolds pitching the famous Deadpool Kills The Marvel Universe storyline making rounds, it was unclear how the House of the Mouse would approach such a notorious, irreverent, and violent character. But now, Deadpool 3 is officially in the works.

Reports of writer meetings taking place over the last month have finally yielded results as Deadline first confirmed that Ryan Reynolds and Marvel Studios have tapped Bob’s Burgers writers Lizzy and Wendy Molyneux for the script. Earlier, Ryan Reynolds had stated that Deadpool would remain R-Rated, despite Disney’s strong inclinations to steer away from mature content.

The Molyneux sisters are the creators of Fox’s animated sitcom The Great North that is scheduled to release in 2021. For their outstanding work in Bob’s Burgers, the sisters had won a Primetime Emmy Award and Annie Award for The Hormone-iums, the fourteenth episode of the sixth season of the critically acclaimed sitcom.

Deadpool 3 will mark the first collaboration between Ryan Reynolds and Marvel Studios. While it is yet to be seen how Disney will handle this fourth wall breaking, motormouth mercenary, fans are still hopeful since Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Feige is also expected to be involved in the movie.

Director David Leitch, best known for Atomic Blonde and John Wick had directed Deadpool 2. However, the stylistic auteur was absent from the writer meeting, hinting that a new director might be helming the third sequel. Nonetheless, with Deadpool 3 in the works, fans might have their first glimpse of the Fantastic Four and the X-Men soon enough.
