Kevin Feige Confirms That “Deadpool 3” Will be an MCU Film
One major puzzle piece that had been unaccounted for when Disney acquired 20th Century Fox has now been slotted into place—yes, folks, the Merc with the Mouth is joining the MCU. In a conversation with Collider, Marvel President Kevin Feige confirmed that Deadpool 3 would be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Not only that, but Feige said that the franchise will retain its naughty allure and stick to its R-rated roots.
“It will be rated R and we are working on a script right now, and Ryan’s overseeing a script right now,” Feige told Collider. “It will not be [filming] this year. 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.”
The script is currently being worked on by star Ryan Reynolds and sisters Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin and Wendy Molyneux. Currently, Marvel Studios, as always, has a lot going on. The current production slate includes Taika Waititi’s Thor: Love and Thunder, Jon Watts’ Spider-Man 3, Sam Raimi’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther 2, and Nia DaCosta’s Captain Marvel 2.
So it’ll be a while until we see just how many jokes Reynolds can make about Deadpool finally joining the MCU, but even if it’s 2023, we’re guessing it’ll be worth the wait.
