Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick confirm the next film in the series will be R-rated, even though it’ll be at Marvel. Earlier this year, Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox became official, meaning the Mouse House now has the film rights to the various Marvel characters Fox controlled, like the X-Men and Fantastic Four.
During July’s San Diego Comic-Con, Kevin Feige revealed new movies for both of those properties are in development, though it is unknown when they will actually be released.
As exciting it is to see Wolverine, the Human Torch, and more become part of the MCU after all these years, the Disney/Fox deal raised many questions about the Deadpool film franchise. That series, of course, is noted for its R-rated take on the comic book genre, gleefully incorporating brutal violence, excessive profanity, and other adult-orientated elements that clash with the MCU’s four-quadrant, PG-13 approach to filmmaking.
