Ryan Reynolds Discusses Deadpool 3’s ‘Tightrope Walk’ of Tone

The duo of Wolverine and Deadpool are all set to team up in the upcoming sequel Deadpool 3and in a recent interview, star Ryan Reynolds talked about how the couple’s two very different tones will work in a movie.

Talking to The packaging recently, Reynolds noted that it would be a “tightrope walk” to get the characters to work together in a way that audiences love, before joking that they’ll both come from the “Marvel Ancillary Universe” to the real Marvel Cinematic Universe .

“I think it’s once in a while,” Reynolds said. “I mean, most of these movies are always a tightrope walk of tone, so in this case, though, you have a collision of two pretty iconic characters that exist in Marvel’s auxiliary universe [laughs] – We’re in the Marvel Cinematic Universe at this point.”

Reynolds went on to discuss the fact that their goal in making the film is to find a way to “serve both” characters and not take anything away from what makes them beloved.

“It’s really kind of finding a way to serve both of these characters that feels extraordinarily authentic to each of them, and I think that these two injustices are actually going to do justice in a pretty big way,” Reynolds said. .

Deadpool 3 was 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 previously assured fans that it will remain an R-rated film — just like the first two films, which would make it the studio’s first film with said mature rating.

It will act as the first movie in Deadpool film series released after Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox. The film is currently scheduled for release on November 8, 2024.
