Kevin Feige Promises Deadpool 3 Is Going To Be Even Bigger Than The First Two Films
| Last updated
“How do we elevate it in the way we’ve been able to with Civil War, and Infinity War and Ragnarok?” said Feige.
“It’s very fun to be in the world of the Ryan Reynolds show.”
While 20th Century Fox produced the first two films, Deadpool 3 will be under the helm of Marvel studios, making it the first R-rated movie in the MCU.
Although little is known about the film’s plot, Bob's Burgers writers Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin have been commissioned to write the threequel.
The writers jumped onboard after Reynolds and the team at Marvel decided their pitch was the ‘perfect fit’ for Deadpool's introduction into the MCU, according to Collider.
The film's official release date has still not been disclosed; however, Feige told the outlet last year that production would commence sometime in 2022.
He added: “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.”
Entertainment reporter Daniel Richtman reports that Reynolds has also been campaigning for Deadpool to come out as bi-sexual.
According to Richtman, despite the character being portrayed as heterosexual in the first two films, the 45-year-old actor 'very much wants' to touch on his sexuality as the fast-talking superhero is openly pansexual in the comics.
Vanity Fair reports that Reynolds was asked about potentially exploring queerness in the franchise during Comic Con's Hall H panel.
He responded: “I certainly think that this universe . . . needs to represent and reflect the world in very real ways.”
“The great thing about Deadpool is that we’re allowed to do things that other superhero movies don’t necessarily do, and that’s probably one of them.
"It’s something that I’d love to see more of, certainly through Wade, certainly through this universe, because it’s something that we’re building out more. We have a lot of tools in the shed that we get to play with.”
