Disney Confirmed To Be Working On ‘Deadpool 3’ With Writers Of ‘Bob’s Burgers’ Attached
It was announced this week that the Walt Disney Company would indeed be going forward in producing Deadpool 3 and introducing the character to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It was further revealed that the writers Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux would be attached to the upcoming project. The two sisters are best known for serving as executive producers and writers for the Emmy Award-winning animated sitcom Bob’s Burgers. However, the writers from the first two Deadpool movies Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese will not be returning for the upcoming sequel under Disney. Director David Leitch will also apparently not return, paving the way for a new director to possibly take his place.
Most fans were excited by this news and were quick to celebrate on Twitter after the announcement. While there are people who are nervous that the film will be PG-13 under Disney, others are confident that the company will keep the Deadpool character rated-R. Either way, it has not been announced yet on if the the movie will keep its R-rating. With Ryan Reynolds being the only confirmed actor from the X-Men film series to be portraying the same character, it remains to be seen if other actors will return to the MCU as their characters like Zazie Beets as Domino or Josh Brolin as Cable, with it being even more difficult for the latter to come back since he already portrayed the villain Thanos in several of their movies. It has also not been disclosed if Deadpool 3 would follow the continuity of the previous two Deadpool films, as 20th Century Studios had already confirmed that Disney cancelled all of their plans for upcoming X-Men movies in favor of rebooting them for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
While there is still not that much information given on Deadpool 3, the film could still retain the vibe of the first two movies if Disney decides to continue the storyline, bring back the other characters and make the film rated-R. If it does allow for an R rating, it would make it the first R movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
