Deadpool 3:

What Does It Mean For The MCU?

By David Crow

Deadpool 3 is bringing Mutants to Marvel Studios. 

More than a year after Disney’s purchase of 20th Century Fox was finalized, the Mouse is embracing the Merc.

This means Deadpool 3 is the first X-Men related film produced by Kevin Feige’s Marvel Studios.

You can sense Wade Wilson’s excitement.

It was confirmed when producer/star Ryan Reynolds hired Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Logelin as writers.

This will be the first time Marvel Studios has openly played in the mutant sandbox.

Previously, Marvel movies couldn’t even use the word “mutant,” which led to Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch being “miracles.”

And Marvel did not put any X-Men movies on its calendar during its Phase 4 rollout in 2019.

Given how the original X-Men franchise petered out with Dark Phoenix, we can see why.

But Deadpool is a mutant, and one who can have a ball making fun of Marvel-Fox awkwardness.

It remains unknown if Deadpool 3 will have the “Marvel Studios” banner…

… Especially as the movie is expected to still be rated R.

But it is a chance for Marvel to start playing with mutants right after introducing the multiverse.

The studio could also test some ideas about mutants existing with their PG heroes…

Even if Deadpool 3 keeps its cast “lower-tier” with characters like Cable and Domino.

Still, who doesn’t want to see Spidey use four letter words?
