Deadpool & Wolverine will be Marvel Studios’ first R-rated project when it hits theaters this July but it certainly won’t be it’s last. Even though horror films can do just fine as PG-13 projects, Mahershala Ali‘s long-gestating Blade project has already been deemed an R-rated film. That film, which is currently slated to hit theaters in 2026, has already been rumored to set up another, major team-up flick and a new rumor indicates that Marvel Studios may already be eyeing some candidates to helm it.

According to social media scooper My Time to Shine Hello, Marvel Studios may be interested in working with Fede Álvarez on the rumored Midnight Sons project.

While theres never been any official word or even so much as a tease from Marvel about a Midnight Sons project being in the works, it’s been a hotly rumored project for some time. Recently, Michael Giachhano, who helmed Werewolf By Night for the studio, was rumored to be attached. Having just worked with Disney on Alien: Romulus, which is exoected to be a big hit for the studio, Álvarez is at the very least a logical guess to be on a list of potential directors should the project ever move forward.

Should the studio truly be interested in Álvarez, it would almost certainly indicate at least a willingness to consider crafting Midnight Sons as another R-rated project. Álvarez has exclusively worked in R-rated or TV-MA content as a director and the type of stories that the supernatural team-up film might draw from almost all certainly could lend themselves to a more mature adaptation.
