Collider

There were a lot of questions that arose when Disney bought 20th Century Fox, but one big question Marvel fans had was about the future of the Deadpool franchise. Only just a few short years ago, the low-budget, R-rated superhero movie paid off for Fox in a big way, becoming its most prized superhero property. A sequel was immediately greenlit, but the victory lap was short-lived as Disney swooped in and Fox’s future Deadpool plans were put on hold.

Clearly Disney wouldn’t throw away a franchise and character as valuable as Deadpool, but questions remained regarding how the R-rated property would fit into the exclusively PG-13 box of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Well as it turns out, pretty neatly.

Collider’s own Steve Weintraub recently spoke with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige in anticipation of Marvel’s first Disney+ series WandaVision, and during their conversation Feige gave a promising update on Deadpool 3, revealed when filming will begin, and most importantly, confirmed the sequel will be part of the MCU.

That’s right. When Deadpool 3 happens, it won’t be as some tangentially related property with a couple of jokes about the MCU. Ryan Reynolds’ foul-mouthed mercenary is officially joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe – and he’ll be keeping his R-rating. Feige said sisters Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin and Wendy Molyneux are hard at work on the script with Reynolds overseeing, but Deadpool 3 filming won’t begin until 2022 at the earliest:

“It will be rated R and we are working on a script right now, and Ryan’s overseeing a script right now… 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.”

This is an exciting update. Obviously Feige and Co. have their hands full production-wise, as they’re in the midst of filming Thor 4 and Spider-Man 3, and this year will also begin filming Doctor Strange 2, Black Panther 2, and Captain Marvel 2. So Deadpool 3 won’t be hopping onto the dance card until 2022, meaning the film probably won’t hit theaters until 2023 at the earliest.

But that doesn’t mean we won’t see Deadpool before then. Given the character’s meta-textual nature and Marvel’s knack for cameos, I wouldn’t be surprised if we see the character at some point this year or next in one of Marvel’s many films and TV shows.

WandaVision premieres on Disney+ on January 15th, but there's much more where that came from. Feige also told us about the upcoming Secret Invasion series and revealed that shows like Lokiand The Falcon and the Winter Soldierwill have longer episodes than some other Disney+ Marvel shows.

...

Well, it was only a matter of time! And I welcome it. That means we should probably expect Blade to be R too as that is another Marvel character you just can't do alone in that rating.

So Mutants exist!? Unless they are from another reality I doubt anyone would accept it. Its waaaaaay too late to have Mutants populate earth out of nowhere. I get that the X-Men always been secretive but its gonna be hard to tie-up lose ends.

Edit: Oh and glad to hear about Deadpool 3 is happening. Would love to see Ryan and Sam Jackson together again.

I 100% agree. Mutants have existed for a long time. It would be completely uncharacteristic of the X-Men or even the mutant brotherhood to not try and stop Thanos.

How they expect to incorporate the X-Men and mutants in general into the MCU is going to be a tall task. I've read pretty much every fan theory from the community out there, and seemingly, a parallel universe or alternate timeline is the only real way. How they merge, how this all becomes a new thing, is going to be interesting.... I have serious doubts about them pulling it off.

@sonic_spark: Multiverse of Madness seems like it would set that up pretty well.

I think it's maybe too much.

MCU is plenty hilarious and just the right mix of serious, levity, action, and drama. Adding a "wildcard" like Deadpool that has ties to people and places that are not mentioned in the MCU seems like too much of a good thing. I like pickles, and I like peanut butter....but not mixed together (I've tried, so I know).

Isn't that kind of the standard operating procedure for things like this?

  • Person A: Hey, this doesn't make sense
  • Person B: Well, what if the "_" travel to a different Earth where the "_ is unknown to _"
  • Person A: Like a....multiverse?
  • Person B: Sure, whatever
  • Person A: Brilliant! This way we can have our cake and eat it too.

And then, you know, like 100 "Earths" later they're still doing whatever they want.

@mrbojangles25: Kinda funny that DC will be doing a similar thing at roughly the same time with Flashpoint.

At least with Deadpool involved, Marvel will be able to wink at the audience and acknowledge it's all kind of a shitshow.

Since Mutants already exist in the first two Deadpool films, I would love to see something like Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe for the third entry.

It could be made into almost an Avengers-like movie with all the popular characters getting killed by Mr. Pool, but maybe by the end he ends up in the reality that the MCU takes place and somehow brings the Mutants with him. Maybe the Mutants chase after him when he goes on an inter-dimensional killing spree.

I would actually sort of want that, seeing as how Deadpool is all about breaking down the fourth wall and self-deprecation.
