With the acquisition of 20th Century Fox by the house that the mouse built, along with eventual addition of the X-Men to the Marvel Cinematic Universe many were wondering about the fate of everyone’s favorite foul-mouthed sexy and scarred hero, Deadpool. Of course his two previous films were R-rated and fully embraced that rating. Well now thanks to Marvel Sudios president, Kevin Feige and an interview from COLLIDER, it has been confirmed that the rating will remain the same when Ryan Reynolds brings the character over to the MCU.
According to Feige, “It will be rated R and we are working on a script right now, and Ryan’s overseeing a script right now… It will not be [filming] this year. Ryan is a very busy, very successful actor. We’ve got a number of things we’ve already announced that we now have to make, but it’s exciting for it to have begun. Again, a very different type of character in the MCU, and Ryan is a force of nature, which is just awesome to see him bring that character to life.”
Now even though we are being told that a full DEADPOOL film won’t be happening for some time, there s nothing that says that we may not see Wade Wilson pop up sporadically in the MCU throughout its numerous TV shows and films.
