Kevin Feige spoke on the possibility of R-rated Marvel Studios films other than Deadpool.
Ryan Reynolds and Fox hit a home run with the Deadpool franchise. With two films, The foul mouthed mutant has garnered over a billion dollars at the box office and was once the highest grossing R-rated film of all time. Needless to say Deadpool was a hit.
Fans have been waiting for news regarding a third Deadpool film for years and the merger of Disney and Fox definitely delayed development on the threequel. Now, we got some new information on Deadpool 3 from Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige and it seems as if Wade Wilson will have the only R-rated franchise.
I think we target everything we’re doing for kids and adults, so I think your question is more adult or R-rated. Other than Deadpool, which has already established itself as a certain genre and a certain rating, that we already said we would not mess with when we started working on Deadpool —which we have– other than that, we haven’t encountered a story or a storyline or a character’s journey that a PG-13, or the tone, or the ratings we’ve been using up to this point has prevented us. We haven’t been held back by. If we ever are, than certainly there can be a discussion that can be had now that there’s other outlets like Star. But that just hasn’t been the case. We’ve told all the stories that we wanted to with the tonality and the rating we have now.
