It seems like there is no stopping Deadpool from being himself. Deadpool 3 writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick confirmed that the fan-favorite anti-hero will keep his vulgar mouth despite operating under Disney’s Marvel Studios.
Breaking The Fourth Wall (And The Record)
Deadpool is portrayed by Ryan Reynolds, and the merc with a mouth is known for his not-so-polite manner of speaking. The character first debuted on the big screen in the 2009 X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Unfortunately, it received so much backlash that they had to redo and reboot the character.
Reese and Wernick worked on bringing the original comic book version of Deadpool to life in its first film in 2016. It was a commercial success despite receiving an R-rating, garnering over $782 million at the box office.
The sequel to the movie was released in 2018 and Disney has already acquired the rights to Deadpool, Fantastic Four, and X-Men. In 2019, Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed that Deadpool and the other franchises are now welcome to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Reynolds announced the third movie in the same year, with Shawn Levy taking the wheel as the director.
Deadpool 3 Will Keep The Expletives
Fans have been asking whether Deadpool would tone down his vulgar sense of humor now that it is under Disney’s control. The writers have assured fans that “Deadpool is gonna be Deadpool.” When asked about writing the story, Reese said:
“They’ve 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.”
Now that it has been established that Deadpool will keep his trademark expletives and offbeat jokes, fans can only wait until Disney releases the film and gets its own rating. Deadpool 3 has not been given a release date yet.
