A rated-R entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been Deadpool 3 confirmed. This movie will be the third one starring actor Ryan Reynolds in the irreverent Deadpool franchise. The first Deadpool film premiered to immense success despite its low budget, and the subsequent sequel received the same positive reaction overall. This franchise was traditionally considered part of the continuity of the Fox-owned X-Men movies, which were narratively distinct from the Marvel Cinematic Universe owned by Disney.
After it was recently announced that Deadpool 3 will be the MCU’s first R-rated movie, Marvel fans feel much better about the chances of the Blade reboot receiving an R rating. Although the first two R-rated Deadpool films were extremely popular, there were fears among fans that Disney would not approve an MCU R-rated film. With new remarks from Marvel boss Kevin Feige, who verified that Deadpool 3 would not be toned down, those feelings were assuaged.
Deadpool 3 Kevin Feige
Ryan Reynolds’ schedule is so jammed, as Kevin Feige states, that he can’t film Deadpool 3 in 2021. But over the next year, with so many Marvel ventures happening, fans can always be happy. And now thousands of more fan theories are likely to pop up about how Wade Wilson is going to make his MCU entry, and with which characters he might actually connect.
As well as the upcoming release of WandaVision on Disney+, the next installment in the MCU is Black Widow on May 7th. To schedule your next movie experience, be sure to check out our 2021 release list.
Ryan Reynolds Deadpool 3
Since Disney formally acquired 21st Century Fox in 2019, it has been a long time coming for Deadpool: The foul-mouthed unorthodox superhero will enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe for Deadpool 3. The tongue-firmly-in-cheek response to the news is Ryan Reynolds, who wore the red-and-black mask for Fox’s Deadpool 1 and 2.
As of 20th Century Fox-owned Marvel’s X-Men characters, Reynolds’ first two Deadpool adventures came out, but Disney bought the media company (and the rights to those characters) in 2019. The actor said last year that it was “a win for everyone involved.”
Deadpool 3 Marvel Cinematic Universe
In 2020, the Marvel Cinematic Universe might not have had a major year, but it aims to compensate for the fall. All eyes are on the future of its biggest heroes, with 2021 shaping up to be much better for the franchise. This includes Deadpool now that Disney has won the mouthy mercenary rights, and Kevin Feige, head of Marvel Studios, has announced that the hero’s next film will be rated R.
This new news came from Collider, as Feige did interviews ahead of WandaVision’s Disney+ premiere. It was there that the Deadpool 3 producer opened up and he revealed that star Ryan Reynolds was helping to oversee the script.
Deadpool 3 Says Manager, Does not have to be R-Rated
Phase Four of the MCU was recently revealed by Kevin Feige, while also announcing a Blade reboot, and revealing that plans for X-Men and Fantastic Four were in motion. But for Deadpool’s swearing, crude, spandex-clad anti-hero, there’s still a lot of mystery.
Known for being an R-rated character (generally 15-rated, often 18-rated), dropping f-bombs and dismembering his enemies. The MCU’s brand is family-friendly, so far. But director David Leitch says that if Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool needs to be sanitized, it isn’t the end of the world.
It is not entirely foreign to the notion of Deadpool being a PG-13 (12A) hero. Last year, with Once Upon a Deadpool, Deadpool 2 was retooled for younger viewers. Fans would probably be upset if the character was censored too often, however.
DEADPOOL 3 FORGES AHEAD Head Forge
Deadline exclusively announced that Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin were brought on board by Marvel Studios to write the untitled Deadpool 3, with Ryan Reynolds being heavily involved in the search. It is also confirmed that just like the first two films have been, Marvel Studios is preparing to keep this latest sequel R-rated, even as it moves to the Marvel Cinematic Universe based in Disney.
This is very exciting news stating that Disney is completely committed to getting Deadpool into the MCU, after the Fox/Disney deal went through, just as fans of both franchises have wanted. The greatest concern was that Deadpool will remain the R-rated Merc with a Mouth that he was portrayed as in the first two Fox films, and Disney seems to be determined to give the fans just what they expect.
Now that Deadpool 3 is confirmed to be R rated by Kevin Feige once and For all, I hope Blade is considered for an R rating along with the MCU Wolverine in the future. pic.twitter.com/KV1xAicv6j

Everything We Know About Deadpool 3
Fans have been expecting Deadpool to join the MCU for a long time, as it was said before he was the one character linked to X-Men that Marvel would not reboot. There are a lot of hypotheses already on how the hero could end up meeting the Avengers or even using an Infinity Stone. The key problem for the screenwriters would be to explain the presence of mutants in the MCU since none of the big MCU films have mentioned mutants before. Some fans have spoken about the forthcoming WandaVision Disney+ series, theorizing that it could in some way help link the MCU and the X-Men movies.
It is possible that the screenwriters of Deadpool 3 would not take these problems too seriously, considering the tone of the Deadpool franchise. Deadpool’s ability to crack the fourth wall and see outside his own narrative is already established, so his leap into the MCU is likely to be handled with the same lightness and humor. Deadpool 3 might now be an MCU movie, but it’s still going to have the same Deadpool that fans love and know.
Since Deadpool 3 is gonna be Rated R (Big W). Can we go ahead and make Blade Rated R and could y’all make Moon Knight a little edgier for me🤔
Please and Thank You pic.twitter.com/zTsvG6e6e9

Deadpool 3 confirmed
For more mature fans, giving Deadpool 3 confirmed an R rating opens the door for Marvel to develop other movies. A great many of these fans are expressing their hopes on social media that this news means that the upcoming Blade reboot will also be R-rated. All the previous Blade films are R-rated, as with Deadpool, so giving the new Blade anything less would just make the new film feel a lot tamer, even if it’s a reboot.
Security is notoriously tight at Marvel Studios, allowing audiences to be fully immersed in each new release and not to know what could happen next. As such, all have been keeping mum about exactly how Deadpool, if at all, was going to factor into the MCU. And while we’re years away from Deadpool 3 hitting theaters, it’s exciting to learn that, after all these years, he will be officially brought into the shared universe.
Wow the first R-rated MCU movie
That’s something I wasn’t expecting lmfao https://t.co/bVHVm3Cg8v
