A major worry can seemingly be put to rest after the announcement that Disney CEO Bob Iger made during their first quarter earnings call. That worry being that Deadpool will allowed to remain as an R-rated property after the Disney acquisition of the Marvel properties owned by Fox.
This could be due to the fact that the first two films made over $1.5 billion between them.so there really isnt reason as to why Disney would need to rush into heading down the PG-13 route despite the popularity of Once Upon a Deadpool last year.
Iger however cautioned that any future Deadpool movies would be required to be “carefully branding [R-rated films]…so we’re not in any way confusing the consumer.” If you need a translator the beautiful Marvel Studios intro you seen on the beginning of MCU films will more than likely not apply to the merc with a mouth and he may not be able to join the MCU franchise.
Ladies and gentlemen it is now pretty set and concrete that once taboo word of “mutant” will not be forbidden anymore, as the X-men will be in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Disney CEO Bob Iger has confirmed the X-Men will fall directly under the supervision of Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Iger stated, “It only makes sense. I want tot be careful here because of what’s been communicated to the Fox folks, but I think they know,” he went on to say, “It only makes sense for Marvel to be supervised by one entity. There shouldn’t be two Marvels.”
When Iger was asked a question regarding the merger that many people were curious about and thats the inclusion of Deadpool in the Avengers, he said, ““Kevin’s got a lot of ideas, I’m not suggesting that’s one of them. But who knows?”
This news is going to fire up many fans especially as we get closer and closer to Avengers 4. Does this mean we get a special post-credit scene? We shall see.
