Deadpool 3: Official Announcement and Potential Release Date
Posted On June 10, 2022
Marvel acquired the rights for Deadpool from fox in 2019. After that, we have been anticipating Deadpool 3 from a long time. Ryan Reynolds has also gone back and forth to drop hints about this via his marketing techniques.
Deadpool Joins the MCU
Seems like the wait is now over. Marvel Studios is getting finally serious about Deadpool 3 and hence they’ve made an official announcement.
Deadpool 3 – Director and Writers
Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool 3 will be directed by Free Guy and The Adam Project director Shawn Levy.
As for the writers, at first Bob’s Burgers writers Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin were hired for Deadpool 3. But with Shawn Levy back, he has pressed on the original writers to write it.
Before, Marvel acquired Deadpool, this movie was going to happen under the banner of Fox. The creators had a script where Deadpool and Wolverine take a road trip. Yes, we were going to see this dream duo sharing the screen space.
But then the deal with Marvel happened and just after that, Hugh Jackman decided to step down as Wolverine and we saw his end.
So, with Deadpool in the MCU, there are a lot of possibilities with this movie.
Deadpool 3 – Plot and Crossovers
The plot of this movie is not clear yet now that the original script has been scraped off.
But one thing that was just confirmed recently was that Deadpool 3 is going to stay R-rated. The reason is because even when under the banner of Fox, both the Deadpool movies earned $780 million worldwide. So, Disney wouldn’t want to dig a grave for themself.
Hence, with all of this, Deadpool will still continue to stay separated from the rest of the characters although it will be a part of the MCU. Deadpool’s storylines won’t merge into major MCU movie storylines like the Avengers. But there can be a lot of characters crossovers now. Any of the MCU character may show up in this movie, it might not mean anything in the long run. Deadpool would just break the fourth wall and make fun of those characters.
