Ryan Reynolds Teases An R-Rated Deadpool Coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Ryan Reynolds is excited about Deadpool joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Disney bought the rights to the franchise last year when it acquired Fox and fans have been wondering how the House of Mouse was going to incorporate the foul-mouthed character into the MCU ever since. If Reynolds has a say in the matter, fans can fully expect an R-rated Deadpool coming to the MCU.

Ryan Reynolds hijacks X-Men reunion

Deadpool has a long history of wanting to join the X-Men when the franchise was still with Fox. In the first two Deadpool films, several members of the X-men enjoyed cameos while Wade Wilson hilariously joked about trying to get Hugh Jackman to appear as Wolverine.

In a recent virtual X-Men reunion, Reynolds crashed the party and claimed membership following his appearance in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The Deadpool star appeared alongside Patrick Stewart, Famke Janssen, Ian McKellan, Jackman, and Halle Berry.

Reynolds also brought along James McAvoy and Sophie Turner, who more recently joined the X-Men cast, and they all reminisced about their time in the hit franchise.

It is unclear if Marvel plans on bringing any of these actors to the MCU. Considering how Dark Phoenix was a big flop at the box office, many fans expect the studio to completely reboot the mutant team.

After celebrating the “heroic acts of healthcare and other essential workers,” the actors began leaving the reunion until it was only Reynolds and Jackman on the line. At that point, Reynolds introduced Live Schreiber, making the X-Men Origins reunion complete. 

Reynolds teases R-Rated ‘Deadpool 3’

Unfortunately, Marvel has released very little details concerning Deadpool 3. We already know that the studio has plans to bring Deadpool into the MCU, but exactly what that looks like remains a mystery.

One of the biggest questions surrounding the third installment is whether or not the film will keep its rating. Marvel has yet to release an R-rated movie in the MCU and fans have serious doubts that Disney will approve it.

Reynolds has previously confirmed that they are in the early phases of development on the threequel, but we still do not know when the character will officially join the MCU. Fortunately, it sounds like the first two Deadpool movies might be coming to Disney+ a lot sooner than expected.

Jackman recently posted about how he was excited to see Disney release an “uncensored” version of X-Men: Days of Future Past on their streaming platform. In the comments, Reynolds teased that he hopes the studio will do the exact same thing with Deadpool.

“Excited for them to do the same for Deadpool, it’s time children knew,” Reynolds shared.

Reynolds didn’t reveal anything else about the upcoming project, but it is good to know that the first two Deadpool films might be coming to Disney+ soon.

Ryan Reynolds pokes fun at Brad Pitt

While fans wait for official word on Deadpool 3, Reynolds recently poked fun at Brad Pitt’s cameo in Deadpool 2. As fans will recall, Pitt enjoyed a very brief cameo in the movie as Vanisher, an invisible superhero who joined Deadpool’s X-Force.

Given how the character is invisible, fans didn’t know who played him until he died. Vanisher hit a string of power lines in the group’s first mission, which revealed that Pitt was the one playing the character.


‘Deadpool 3’: Morena Baccarin Has ‘Not Been Asked, or Approached’ to Return for Ryan Reynolds’ Debut in the MCU

Taking to social media, Reynolds hilariously posted a photo of him and Pitt posing on the set of Deadpool 2. The actor captioned the image by writing, “Worked with a lot of great bit players,” but only showed half of Pitt’s face.

Reynolds has gained a reputation for making fun of his fellow celebrities on social media, and even the likes of Pitt are not immune to his jabs.

Marvel has not commented on Reynolds’ post about releasing the first two Deadpool movies on Disney+. Deadpool 3 was not announced in Phase 4 of the MCU, likely pushing the project to Phase 5 or beyond.
