Rhett Reese, the writer of Deadpool 3, talks about what fans can expect from the forthcoming Marvel three-part and how it will add to the Marvel Universe.
Ryan Reynolds will reprise his role as the Merc with a Mouth in this third installment, directed by Shawn Levy of The Adam Project.
The plot of the film has been kept under wraps since it was announced, mainly because it was in danger for a year and a half as a result of the transfer of film rights to Disney. Yet now, screenwriter Reese has teased that Deadpool 3 will be a "fish-out-of-water."
"It''s a great opportunity for fish-out-of-water." Deadpool is a lunatic at the center of a film. To drop a lunatic into a very sane world, it''s straight butter. It''s going to be really fun," he told Post Cred Pod.
Although he does not go into too much detail, this "fish-out-of-water" tale suggests Wade Wilson''s introduction to the MCU timeline after being removed from his reality in the Fox universe.
Despite the transition to Disney, the filmmakers recently assured viewers that the film would retain its R-rated character as well as its engaging appeal.
"It''s these [Disney] people, and these people do things their way," said Reese.
"And we were used to doing things our way, so there are disagreements," says the author. Marvel''s are extremely supportive, but it''s not like that they say anything, ''You know, that''s too far,'' that might happen, but this point, it''s been nothing but support."
This is usually contradicting the rest of the MCU''s PG-13 content, so Deadpool being a "lunatic" dropped in a "sane world" makes perfect sense for his introduction to the timeline, while his ability to break the fourth wall will no doubt allow him to make jokes about this different reality he''s now living in.
Deadpool 3 isn''t having a date yet. Deadpool and Deadpool 2 are now available on Disney+, and are now available on both platforms, including on the internet, DVD, and Blu-ray.
