DEADPOOL 3 Writers Reveal Marvel Studios Has Been "Incredibly Supportive" Of R-Rated Content

Deadpool 3 writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have provided an update on the threequel's progress, confirming that Marvel Studios is in full support of the movie's more adult-oriented content...

When it was announced that Ryan Reynolds' Wade Wilson would make his MCU debut in a third Deadpool movie for Marvel Studios, fans assumed the Merc With a Mouth would be toned down a few notches in order to adapt to that PG-13 world.

We'd later learn that the project was being developed with an R-rating in mind, but there was still a lot of scepticism - after all, how violent/raunchy/sweary was the Disney-owned studio really willing to allow one of their superhero movies to get?

It remains to be seen if Deadpool 3 is able to harness the overall tone and irreverent energy of its predecessors, but Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who have writing credits on the first two films and are now working on the third with director Shawn Levy, have shared a very positive update with Den of Geek.

“It’s a thrill,” Reese said of bringing the character to the MCU. “It’s an absolute thrill to have the band back together, to have a new backdrop in the MCU with new characters, new villains, that kind of thing. You know, it’s never a marriage we necessarily saw coming — Fox and Disney, that was an external thing [separate] from our storytelling process. But we’re absolutely finding the serendipity and the gold in that situation, or we’re trying to.”

As for whether Kevin Feige or any other execs attempted to curtail some of the R-rated content to make the film more family-friendly, it doesn't sound like fans have anything to worry about.

“They’ve been very supportive with regard to that,” Reese added. “Now when it comes to a particular joke, if we cross a line, maybe we’ll hear at some point, ‘Maybe not that joke.’ But I think they’ve been incredibly supportive of what we’re doing, because obviously we were doing it separate from them for a long time, and I think they’ve seen the success and they’ve had their own even greater success. So hopefully it’ll be a marriage made in heaven. But we’ve definitely got their support, and that’s a great thing to feel.”

The scribes weren't willing to divulge any specific plot details, with Reese joking that the pair are working on the script in a “secret vault under an ocean somewhere”

No release date has been announced for Deadpool 3 yet.
