When Disney purchased Fox in March 2019, Marvel fans were rightfully excited about the prospect of the newly acquired X-Men and Fantastic Four characters making their way into the MCU. There was some uncertainty, however, about the future of Deadpool. After two massively successful films, plans for the Merc with the Mouth’s next outing were seemingly put on hold.

With previous entries in the MCU sticking to a strictly PG-13 rating, fans were left to wonder how Kevin Feige would fit Ryan Reynolds’ R-rated version of Wade Wilson in. Rumours of a watered-down version to fit Disney’s family-friendly image have continued to circle. There have also been suggestions that Reynolds’ third outing would continue to be R-rated but outside of the MCU. Deadpool’s co-creator Rob Liefeld even went as far as to say that Disney has no immediate plans for a new Deadpool movie.

Thankfully, Kevin Feige has put to bed all of those rumours during an interview held ahead of the release of WandaVision. When asked by Collider about Deadpool 3, Feige confirmed that the foul-mouthed character is officially joining the MCU. Most importantly, he’ll keep his R-rating from the previous movies. Feige also confirmed earlier reports that sisters Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin and Wendy Molyneux are working on the script with Ryan Reynolds overseeing.

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.”

News that Deadpool 3 will keep its R-rating will be especially welcome for fans of the previous films. Unfortunately, it looks like we’ll have to wait a few years to see his introduction in the MCU, although there is a chance we could see some cameos in other movies before then!
