The writers of the nextDeadpoolsequel are confident that the franchise will remain as irreverent as ever.
Rhett ReeseandPaul Wernick, who have writing credits on the first twoDeadpoolfilms and are working onDeadpool 3for director Shawn Levy, toldDen of Geekthat joining theMarvel Cinematic Universewill not change the overall feel that fans loved about the previous movies. The upcoming film willbe the firstsince Disney acquired 20th Century Fox, which releasedDeadpool(2016) and its 2018 sequel.
“It’s a thrill,” Reese said about theRyan Reynolds-fronted franchise entering the Marvel fold. “It’s an absolute thrill to have the band back together, to have a new backdrop in the MCU with new characters, new villains, that kind of thing. You know, it’s never a marriage we necessarily saw coming — Fox and Disney, that was an external thing [separate] from our storytelling process. But we’re absolutely finding the serendipity and the gold in that situation, or we’re trying to.”
