ANN/THE STAR – Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are currently writing Deadpool 3 for director Shawn Levy and star Ryan Reynolds. Reese is assuring fans that the script is not going to be “Disney-fied”.
The upcoming third instalment of the Deadpool franchise will be the first made under Disney, which acquired Fox in 2019, after Fox found immense success with two Deadpool movies.
Fans have wondered how a Disney-backed Deadpool will look, and whether or not the studio’s family friendly brand will sanitise the rude Deadpool tone.
“It’s these (Disney) people and these people do things their way,” Reese recently told The Playlist. “And we were used to doing things our way, so there are differences, but I think the great part is that Marvel’s been incredibly supportive. They are gonna let Deadpool be Deadpool, you know? It’s not like any particular joke may be the one that they say, ‘You know, that’s too far’, that could happen, but to this point, it’s been nothing but support.
“It’s been nothing but, ‘How can we help you?’ What from our universe would you like to use? How can we make your life easy? And we’re gonna let Deadpool be Deadpool. We’re not… this is not going to be the Disney-fied Deadpool’,” Reese added of Marvel’s views on the franchise’s future. “So they’re awesome, and now it’s up to us to come through and justify that faith.”
The Deadpool movies are the top-grossing X-Men films of all time, each earning over USD780 million worldwide. The first two films, which debuted in 2016 and 2018, were released by 20th Century Fox before Disney acquired that studio. Deadpool 3 currently does not have a release date.
