Deadpool’s R-Rating Isn’t Going Anywhere
In an interview with Variety, Kevin Feige reiterated that Deadpool‘s R-Rating will be sticking around. The first film proved that there is a place for well-written R-Rated comic book films. Something that Logan took in a slightly different direction, but still executed extremely well.
Feige, referencing Bob Iger, said, “When we were purchased, Bob said to us, ‘if it’s not broke, don’t fix it.’” Also, “There’s no question that Deadpool is working, so why would we change it?” Of course, things could still change though. If the X-Men get brought into the MCU before the current run of Deadpool films is complete, they’ll need to find a way to work him into that Universe. . . which could be as simple as a line of dialogue or even not mentioning it at all and making that part of the gag.
While we know of a few films in development, like The Eternals, after Spider-Man: Far From Home, there’s nothing on the slate that actually has an official release date. Also, as far as we know, there’s nothing else that’s currently shooting. And that leaves room for some changes that would allow for the new properties to be introduced.
Like several others, I’ve long wanted to see what Marvel Studios could do with the Fantastic Four and having the ability to use Galactus as a villain. While ‘Phase 4’ would be the ideal time, I’m not sure how likely it is that they’d fast track them. While I’d love to see Reed Richards and the rest of the crew team up with the Guardians to go find the Ultimate Nullifier, I’m just not so sure it’s in the cards.
But what about you guys? Which storylines that Marvel couldn’t use before do you want to see come to life in the movies? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
