One film left over from Marvel Studios’ San Diego Comic-Con panel was the upcoming Deadpool 3, a movie that many fans are extremely excited about. According to Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige, the development of the film continues and hinted at what fans can expect from it.
Talking to The Hollywood Reporter after their Hall H panel at SDCC, Feige was asked about the third Deadpool movie and teased that Marvel Studios has a history of taking big swings when it comes to the third entry in a film series. He went on to note that the studio is looking at how best to “elevate” the film in the same way they did with other third films such as Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity Warand Thor: Ragnarok.
“How do we elevate it in the way that we have been able to Civil warand Infinity War and Ragnarok?” Feige said before joking about coming to work with Deadpool‘s star Ryan Reynolds. “It’s a lot of fun to be in the world of the Ryan Reynolds show.”
Even if you don’t know too much Deadpool 3it is now being written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick from an earlier draft of Bob’s Burgers the duo Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has also previously assured fans that it will remain an R-rated film like the first two films, which would make it the studio’s first film with a mature rating.
It will also serve as the first film in Deadpool film series released after Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox. A release date for the film has not yet been announced.
The first two Deadpool films are both box office successes as they earned a combined global gross of over $1.5 billion. They are both written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, based on the Marvel character created by Fabian Nicieza and Rob Liefeld, with the former directed by Tim Miller, and Deadpool 2 directed by David Leitch.
