Disney purchased Fox, and as such, the Marvel properties that fell under Fox’s umbrella also returned to their Marvel roots. That includes Deadpool, who is arguably one of the biggest fan-favorite Marvel characters. However, with that purchase, fans had become concerned about whether Disney and their “squeaky-clean” image would even allow the gory and hilarious nature of the Deadpool films to even exist any longer. Well, co-writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick of Deadpool 3, have shed some light on the new partnership with Disney and Marvel. According to Reese, “it’s a thrill.” He added, “It’s an absolute thrill to have the band back together, to have a new backdrop in the MCU with new characters, new villains, that kind of thing.”

Both men had been asked about the relationship with Disney and Marvel, and how it pertains to writing Deadpool 3. Reese added, “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. So hopefully it’ll be a marriage made in heaven. But we’ve definitely got their support, and that’s a great thing to feel.” That might come as a shock to many of the fans waiting to see this new entry, but Disney has clearly seen the success of the first two films and has seen fit to not mess with that formula.

Deadpool is known to make fun of practically everyone that employs him. From Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine to Reynolds appearing in Green Lantern, practically nothing is sacred for the character. When asked about finding tons of material within the MCU for the new film to make fun of, both Wernick and Reese exclaimed, “Oh yeah!” We aren’t sure if that means Disney will allow themselves to be made fun of in Deadpool 3, but it would be hilarious to see if that happens.

Deadpool 3 has long been talked about but has seemingly been stuck in developmental hell. Deadpool 2 was released in 2018. The reasoning behind the wait between films has a ton to do with Disney’s acquisition of Fox, and as such, there were likely a lot of talks about what would be next for The Merc with a Mouth. Also, Ryan Reynolds had wanted to take a short break from acting, as the man has been busy for the better part of two decades. However, that hasn’t seemed to pan out just yet. Thankfully, we are now starting to see the shape of this new film. The first of those announcements was that Shawn Levy signed on to direct as he and Reynolds spent time on The Adam Project and Free Guy. Next was the first casting announcement. Leslie Uggams otherwise known as Blind Al had been cast in the third entry. When the men had been asked about plot details for Deadpool 3, they gave the stoic and typical MCU entry answer. Reese stated, “We have an answer,” he added, “But we’re really not supposed to divulge any plot details.”

There are now a lot of characters that Deadpool 3 could incorporate, one of which excited the writers more than anything. A showdown between Thor and Deadpool was questioned, and Reese answered, “Oh man, if he did, we certainly couldn’t talk about it,” He added, “[But] it’d be super cool.” This is in relation to Reese and Wernick working on Spiderhead, which is a new film that employs Chris Hemsworth.

There seems to be a ton of excitement that has been attached to Deadpool 3, even though Disney now owns the rights to the character. The growing worry was always going to be if the third entry can remain raunchy and true to its artistic style, but it sounds like that is certainly the case. We can’t wait to see where this third entry takes Deadpool, and who he is going to anger enough to rip him in half. We vote for The Hulk.
