In a recent interview promoting Zombieland: Double Tap, the screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who also wrote the Deadpool movies, confirmed that future Deadpool sequels will be R-Rated, despite Disney’s purchase of Fox. Wernick said:
“Marvel has promised to continue to let us play in the R-rated Deadpool universe, and the hope is that they will also let us veer into the Marvel Cinematic Universe a little bit as well and play in that sandbox,” he continued. “Our feeling and Ryan’s feeling is that it’s got to be the right idea, it’s got to be great… I think once we collectively agree what idea that great idea is, we’ll be off to the races. Ryan’s super-busy, we’ve got a lot of projects lined up, but we wake up thinking about Deadpool, and we go to sleep thinking about Deadpool.”
He also touched on other projects they’ve got in the works with Ryan Reynolds.
“We’ve got several projects with him in addition to the Deadpool universe. I think the party line and truth is we’re all still figuring it out.”
Reynolds recently posted a picture of him at Marvel Studios as well.
In addition to Zombieland: Double Tap, Wernick and Reese recently wrote 6 Underground for Netflix, which is directed by Michael Bay and set to release December 13.
