Recently it was confirmed that Deadpool 3 is in development. However with Disney on the cusp of acquiring Fox’s assets, there is a good chance that by the time the movie is released, it should fall under Disney’s banner. However therein lies the question of whether or not, especially with Disney’s penchant for family-friendly movies, will Deadpool 3 maintain its R-rating?
Disney’s CEO Bob Iger had previously stated that such a movie was still possible, and he reiterated those sentiments during the company’s recent earnings call where he hinted that there could be more than just R-rated Deadpool movies.
According to Iger, “We do believe there is room for the Fox properties to exist without significant Disney influence over the nature of the content, meaning that we see that there is certainly popularity amongst Marvel fans for the R-rated Deadpool films, as a for instance. We’re going to continue in that business, and there might be room for more of that.”
Given how well the previous Deadpool movies have done considering their R-rating, we’re sure that this is something that Disney would not want to pass up on. According to Iger, he believes that there could be room for such movies at Disney, as long as they are branded in a way that makes it clear what they are.
