Deadpool 3’s MCU Coming-Out Plot Teased by the Writers


Fans have been asking for more details ever since it was revealed that Deadpool would join the MCU and that his films would remain R-rated. In order to promote their new film, Spiderhead, authors Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese have now issued a small tease. After the Fox/Disney merger, Deadpool’s third film was in doubt for a spell, putting him in a precarious position.


Fans might have lost out in this situation because they thought the brand would either be dropped or compelled to adhere to the MCU’s standard PG-13 classification. All bets were off, though, once it was revealed that Deadpool 3 would aim for its customary R rating.


Now, Reese has given a first hint at the type of movie we can expect when Deadpool presumably forms part of the MCU’s Phase 5. Speaking to Post Cred Pod, the writer said:


“It’s a wonderful opportunity for fish-out-of-water. Deadpool is a lunatic at the center of a movie. To drop a lunatic into a very sane world, it’s straight butter. It’s going to be really fun.”


We might have a more precise timeline for Deadpool’s return in the coming months because Marvel Studios CEO Kevin Feige is prepared to lay out the MCU’s future roadmap.

I'm not as much of a "CoMiCs NeEd MoAr DiVeRsItY & iNcLuSiOn" advocate as my girlfriend often is, but we both love funny books, crispy bacon, straight bourbon and hip hop. Add yet, we never vote the same, so we cancel each other out... and that works perfectly in my book!
