DEADPOOL 3: Kevin Feige Confirms R-Rating; Ryan Reynolds' Merc Is Officially Part Of The MCU

DEADPOOL 3: Kevin Feige Confirms R-Rating; Ryan Reynolds' Merc Is Officially Part Of The MCU

We got word late last year that a third Deadpool movie was moving forward at Marvel Studios, and Kevin Feige has now confirmed that Ryan Reynolds' Wade Wilson is coming to the MCU with an R-rating!

After months of rumor and speculation, the trades announced late last year that Marvel Studios was moving forward on a third Deadpool movie, with Ryan Reynolds set to return as the Merc With a Mouth and Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin on board to pen the script.

Those initial reports seemed confident that the threequel would retain its R-rating, but would a Disney-owned studio really allow such a subversive, foul-mouthed, ultra-violent character like Wade Wilson to infiltrate the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

According to Kevin Feige, yes!

During an interview with Collider, the Marvel head made it very clear that Deadpool 3 will be rated R, and set firmly within the shared world of the MCU.

“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.”

It sounds like it'll be quite some time before production on Deadpool 3 gets underway, but there's always a chance Reynolds could film a short cameo for one of the many movies or shows currently in the works.

The prospect of Wade Wilson let loose in the MCU sandbox is certainly an exciting one, but we have no idea how Feige and co. plan on integrating the character to their family-friendly franchise.
