“Deadpool 3” Director Confirms It Will Be Rated R
Recently, Ryan Reynolds revealed that Hugh Jackman would be returning as Wolverine in the third “Deadpool” film and that it would be coming out in cinemas on the 8th of November, 2024.
During a recent interview with Collider, about the new Disney+ Original film, “Night at the Museum: Kahmunrah Rises Again”, Deadpool’s director Shawn Levy shared an update on “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.”
One of the things many Marvel fans have been worried about since Disney purchased 20th Century Fox, was if the next Deadpool film is toned down, and thankfully it looks like that won’t be an issue.
With the film due to be released in cinemas in late 2023, Shawn was asked if filming was going to be starting soon on the third instalment in May, to which he replied:
“On or about. Yep. The truth is the more digitally CG-heavy a movie is, the longer time you need in post. But obviously it’s the first Deadpool movie in the MCU. There’s going to be no lack of visual effects. But it’s also a North Star priority for Ryan and I to keep Deadpool raw, gritty, grounded in the ways that those movies have been and that all of us love.”
The first two “Deadpool” films are available to stream now on Disney+.
