The screenwriter of Deadpool 3 gives news of the film developed by Disney, and they are rather reassuring.
Each passing day is more and more painful for fans of Dead Pool. The observation is clear, we should not see the character portrayed by Ryan Reynolds before quite a while. While Marvel draws the contours of its program for the next few years, the trashiest hero in the Marvel stable has not yet found a release date. It will obviously be necessary to be armed with a lot of patience according to screenwriter Rhett Reese.
During an interview for the magazine playlisthe explains that he wants to take the time to think about a narration that pays homage to the previous opus, while including the protagonist in the larger universe that the Marvel Cinematic Universe represents. “We want to do it right. We’re in the lab working with Ryan Reynolds all the time, and we’re having a lot of fun.”
A balancing act
Since the takeover of 20th Century Fox, Marvel has had the difficult task of including new characters and new licenses in its cinematic universe. The problem: the tone is not really the same. While the Marvel Cinematic Universe makes a point of sticking to PG-13, Dead Pool has made its R-Rated classification its spearhead. Before Joker catapulted himself to the top of the box office, Wade Wilson had already made quite an impression on viewers.
“You know, it’s a marriage between Fox and Disney, they’re two very different universes and it’s not easy. But it is also a magnificent challenge.” But let the fans be reassured, Deadpool will not turn into a hero of virtue for the beautiful eyes of the firm with the big ears. Reese explains bluntly to Playlist that this new film will not be in everyone’s hands.
“They’re not going to spoil the tone. We were always told it could stay R-Rated. I don’t think that will change.”
The director of Stranger Things and Free Guy at the controls
The saga Dead Pool change hands again. After a first opus directed by Tim Miller, and a second directed by David Leitch, it is now on the Netflix side that Marvel is recruiting. The big-eared firm will call on Shawn Levy to produce this third opus. This is not the first time that the filmmaker has collaborated with Ryan Reynolds since he had directed Free Guy for cinema and Adam through time for the red N. He is also one of the artisans who worked on season 4 of Stranger Things.
While Deapool 3 doesn’t yet have a release date, hopefully things will pick up speed in the coming months. The recruitment of Shawn Levy is already a step forward for Marvel, who will no doubt not hesitate to tell us more in due course. In the meantime, we can console ourselves with the prospect of finding other darker heroes from the Marvel universe. After three seasons on Netflix, Daredevil preparing for his comeback under the aegis of Disney this time.
