Deadpool was released back in 2016. At that time nobody believed it to be that much of success. It was R-rated and people never really thought it could be that much of success. It was a high risk but the Fox took it anyway. The movie turned out to be a huge success and everybody loved the movie and the concept. It made them believe that R-rated comic book movies could be a huge success. It opened the door for movies like Logan and even Joker. The movie was a great challenge up until now people were used to watching family-friendly Marvel heroic movies but with the Deadpool, it really broadened the vision of the audience.
Deadpool 2 also had the same success and it is proved now that the audience is willing to welcome the R-rated superhero movies. The movie earned 785 million dollars at the box office making it the highest-grossing R-rated movie. Now that Disney just bought Fox and all the movies and TV shows are under Disney. Fans are asking if Disney going to hand over Deadpool to Marvel? We mostly see family-friendly movies released by Marvel. But with the addition of Deadpool, will it change anything?
Deadpool 3 and MCU Phase 4.
For now, there is no official statement regarding whether or not Deadpool 3 is going to be released anytime soon. The movie was delayed due to the Coronavirus pandemic that has forced people to stay at home. Hollywood is facing a lot of challenges. Most of the movies are set to release directly to DVD. Even Kevin Feige has talked about on many occasions to introduce Mutants into the Marvel Universe.
Deadpool 3 might be the correct way to introduce them.
He even shared his thoughts about the merge and said this on Jimmy Fallon;
“I see infinite possibility in either version,” said Reynolds. “If Deadpool were to be in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, I think it would be explosive and amazing and what a sandbox to play in“.
“If Deadpool continued to get to just do his own thing and be his own thing, also just infinite possibility.”
It is not unknown when the movie is going to be released or whether both mergings are going to happen. But it seems like a possibility.
There are a lot of rumors regarding what new projects Disney is going to work on and what stuff they are going to remake and how. Recently, there were rumors about a live-action Dragon Ball-Z movie. Sadly, Deadpool 3 is not in the MCU phase 4 and it seems like it that the movie is not going to be released before 2022. But adding Deadpool in Marvel Universe could be a humorous adventure for fans.
It would be hilarious and thrilling to watch at the same time. With Avengers Endgame leaving fans heartbroken, introducing this humourous character would be soothing for the audience. You can never hate Ryan Reynolds Merc for a mouth character. But we do hope that Disney would do anything about it.
