The Deadpool 3 writers seem highly confident that the Ryan Reynolds film will get an R-rating.
Fans have been worried that the third film in the Deadpool franchise won’t be rated R due to Disney’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox. However, according to writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, fans of the Ryan Reynolds films have nothing to worry about as Deadpool 3 will more than likely released under the Fox banner.
Speaking to ScreenRant to discuss the future of the Zombieland franchise, the writers were asked if there would be any issues for Deadpool 3 to be rated R now that the Ryan Reynolds franchise is under the hands of Disney. Rhett Reese replied with a resounding positive statement that should excite Deadpool fans.
“Absolutely, because I don’t think it’ll be under the Disney banner. Like, I don’t think when you go to Deadpool 3, there’s going to be a Magic Castle that appears. I think it’s going to be under the Fox banner, so yes.”
There’s been much speculation as to what would happen to the third Deadpool film as the Disney and Marvel Cinematic Universe banner have essentially become family-friendly fare, whilst the Ryan Reynolds films are certainly not that. Despite being R-rated, the Deadpool films have received critical and financial acclaim, subverting the expectations of naysayers. Marvel Studios is hard at work imtergretating Fox properties into the MCU, but according to the Deadpool writers, the Ryan Reynolds character could remain in his own realm.
Currently, there is no indication as to what’s going on over at Marvel Studios, but it would be counter-productive to get rid of the main claim to fame that made the Ryan Reynolds Deadpool films such a smash success. If Deadpool were to remain a separate entity under the Fox banner, but still be able to seamlessly enter the MCU, then fans are certainly in for the best of the both worlds.
