Can you use many F-bombs in a Disney movie? I guess we’ll find out.
Ever since Disney acquired Fox – and therefore bought back the rights to make X-Men movies based on Marvel’s beloved comics – fans have been waiting to see what will happen to dead Pool, which has already appeared in two wildly popular but highly R-rated cinematic adventures that don’t seem to fit comfortably into Disney’s wholesome branding. Would Disney continue dead Poolis the tradition rude?
We may soon find out, because, for The Hollywood Reporter, Dead Pool 3 finally reunites at Marvel, with Ryan Reynolds obviously returning in the lead role. Additionally, Reynolds’ frequent collaborator Shawn Levy is “in negotiations” to direct the film. Levy and Reynolds teamed up last summer on the popular video game action comedy Free guy. Their Latest Effort, The Time Travel Sci-Fi Movie The Adam Projectjust aired on Netflix.
Levy replaces David Leitch, who directed Deadpool 2who replaced Tim Miller, who directed the first dead Poolwhich defied all expectations when it opened in 2016 and grossed over $780 million worldwide, becoming the highest grossing of the entire X-Men film franchise. The screenplay for this sequel is written by Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Logelin of the animated television series Bob’s burgers.
It’s unclear just how adult and, well, Deadpool-y the film will be, though in the past Reynolds and various Marvel and Disney execs have insisted the film will be true to the spirit of those made at Fox. If they make a tamer, PG-13 Dead Pool 3, I don’t see it going well at all. Currently, the film does not have an official release date.
