Deadpool 3 writers believe the movie, despite the MCU connection, can still be R-rated

In a new interview for the home release of  Zombieland 2: Doubletap, creators Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick got to talking about one of the movies we here are FTN are most excited for in the coming years: Deadpool 3.

The duo of course wrote the really rather superb Deadpool and Deadpool 2 and are on board for Deadpool 3 and have been talking about the whole conversatin about if the movie will be forced to be a PG movie under the MCU/Marvel banner but it seems that the duo believe that no, the movie can still be an R-rated outing like parts one and two.

“Absolutely [it can still be R-rated], because I don’t think it’ll be under the Disney banner.

“Like, I don’t think when you go to Deadpool 3, there’s going to be a Magic Castle that appears. I think it’s going to be under the Fox banner, so yes.”

There has been a rumour – or more of a speculation, really – that the movie will possibly be R-rated but the character of Deadpool will be able to pop up in other MCU properties without the adult content.

This would make sense, but I honestly can’t see Marvel boss Kevin Feige letting this happen and, with Once Upon a Deadpool tow years ago, it was proved that the character can tone down the blood and expletives and still be pretty funny.

What say you all? Does Deadpool need to be R-rated? Or can they do him justice with a toned-down approach? Let me know.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
