Deadpool is all about his way of never shutting up. Not just that but also in how foul he’s willing to talk about the world he lives in and those stuck in it with him. Luckily, his transition into live-action didn’t stray far from what made him so unique with the fittingly casted Ryan Reynolds selling the perfomance. Yet, the series is about to enter a new dimension with the Marvel Cinematic Universe that mainly plays around in the PG-13 world.
Many were nervous if they might take away from the series what made it stand out, but even Marvel Studios CEO Kevin Feige knew early on that not offering an R-rated film would go against the character and franchise. Luckily, director Shawn Levy has that same opinion and is seemingly having a blast exploring every crude way they could write a scene while “writing, rewriting, developing, prepping” Deadpool 3.
We are writing, rewriting, developing, prepping ‘Deadpool’ every day now. It is such a blast to laugh every day. It is so delicious to hear and write and come up with these scenes where people are just talking foul. And the violence is in your face and hardcore, and it’s very much a ‘Deadpool’ movie. And it has Logan in it. And it has Wolverine in it. It’s too fun. I’m having so much fun, and I haven’t even hit the shooting floor yet. […] I have to say, developing a ‘Deadpool’ movie is one of the most fun creative experiences of my life because it’s not just that it’s rated R. It’s that it’s so filled with self-awareness, and that makes in-writing very, very fun in a way that is unique to that franchise.
It’s an exciting prospect to see what they can do, especially with how he can technically interact with any character from across Marvel’s cinematic canon; perhaps Spider-Man being the only challenge. Still, with hints at a potential 20th Century reunion and Wolverine confirmed in a major role, we’re definitely in for a wild ride.
