Dead Pool 3 Writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick revealed how Marvel Studios allowed them to retain the vulgarity of Merc With a Mouth that became a winning formula at 20th Century Fox. News on the third dead Pool the film has been slow to arrive, although fans recently learned that Free Guy and The Adam Project director Shawn Levy will be working with Ryan Reynolds again on Dead Pool 3. The involvement of Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick is also new information, although they are no strangers to Deadpool having written the scripts for the first two films. Since Disney is known as a family business, there have always been concerns about how Deadpool’s brand of raunchy would make the transition to the Mouse House. Luckily, Reese and Wernick confirmed that Disney had provided support in this regard.
“Don’t worry about it,” said Reese Geek’s Lair. “They’ve been very supportive about it. Now, when it comes to a particular joke, if we cross a line, we might at some point hear, ‘Maybe not that joke.’ But I think they’ve been incredibly supportive of what we’re doing, because obviously we’ve been doing it separately for a long time, and I think they’ve seen success and they’ve had their own even bigger success . So hopefully it’ll be a heavenly wedding. But we definitely have their support, and that’s a good thing to feel.”
Earlier in the interview, Reese talked about what a joy it’s been working with Marvel to reunite Deadpool’s team in their new home. “It’s a thrill,” Reese said. “It’s an absolute pleasure to reunite the band, to have a new backdrop in the MCU with new characters, new villains, that sort of thing. You know, it’s never a marriage we have necessarily seen coming – Fox and Disney, it was an outside thing [separate] of our storytelling process. But we absolutely find luck and gold in this situation, or we try to.”
To his credit, Ryan Reynolds seemed to approve of Shawn Levy as he once again directed him in Dead Pool 3. “That would be amazing,” Reynolds told ComicBook.com in an exclusive interview, showing his support for the idea of a Levy-directed Deadpool 3 and bringing Wolverine actor Hugh Jackman into the cast. “I say write Kevin Feige, care Marvel Cinematic Universe at any Buena Vista Way. I don’t know where it is, but yeah, that would be nice. That would be a dream. That would be a dream come true.” According to Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige in August 2021, Dead Pool 3 is in active development.
Levy explained her plans to reunite Jackman and Reynolds for a future project. “I’m not going to say where or how, but I will absolutely confirm my intention and determination to be the lucky son of a bitch who brings these two magnificent gods together in the same movie,” Levy told ComicBook.com. “It will happen and it will be me.”
