The whole Disney-Fox merger will see 20th Century Fox’s Marvel properties finding a place for themselves in Disney’s Marvel house. This merger would bring the likes of the Fantastic Four, the X-men and of course Deadpool to the House of Mouse, possibly into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With this is mind, some may be a little worried that Disney might just PG-fy some of Fox’s more Rated-R content including the Merc with a Mouth.
With the critical and commercial success of the two Deadpool films, you gotta wonder if we’ll be seeing a third one with this impending merger between the two companies. Will this be it for Wade Wilson? and also the possibility of seeing an X-Force film? Well, not really as writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are her to alleviate our worries.
In an interview with Screen Rant, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick discussed their upcoming Youtube Premium series Wayne. Reese and Wernick wrote the Deadpool films so yeah, that topic came up along with X-Force in regards to whether they would be tackling both these films simultaneously. They clarified that these films are part of the plan but that X-Force is first in line. Reese said:
“According to the chronology that we’ve established, X-Force will be next, before Deadpool 3. It’s a bit of the “Iron Man 1, Iron Man 2, The Avengers, Iron Man 3″ model, in that sense. X-Force isn’t being written by us. It’s being written and directed by Drew Goddard, or at least that’s the plan right now. We’re not involved with that one. We do anticipate there will be a Deadpool 3 at some point, but it’s just a little premature, because it will definitely take a backseat to X-Force for the time being.”
That’s nice to hear and it looks like they’re also working pretty closely with Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds. Wernick added:
“We’re constantly in touch with Ryan (Reynolds), and we’re always throwing ideas back and forth via text and phone conversations. So, it’s always at the front of our minds. We’ll get there when the time is right, but as of right now, X-Force is next up”
Well, at least those plans are still in order… for now. It’s hard to really say what would happen in the future in regards to the Disney-Fox merger but I’m sure Disney isn’t dumb enough to ignore the Merc with a Mouth and friends. As long as we get Reese and Wernick back, things should be just fine.
