The Deadpool 3 movie might look a lot different than what the franchise has presented over the past few years. New speculation has developed on major changes happening in the highly-anticipated flick.

Big Facts: According to fresh speculation, Marvel Studios could play a key role in Deadpool 3 having a different tone and possible replaced characters when it hits the big screen.

High-Key Details: In December 2019, Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds said the third franchise film is in the early stages of production.

“Yeah we’re working on it right now with the whole team. We’re over at Marvel [Studios] now, which is like the big leagues all of a sudden. It’s kinda crazy. So yeah, we’re working on it.” (“Live With Kelly & Ryan”)

Wait, There’s More: One of the film’s writers recently teased fans about a much-needed follow-up to 2018’s Deadpool 2.

couple of months ago, the film’s co-writer Paul Wernick said that, while a lot remains to be sorted, he and Rhett Reese were just waiting for Marvel bosses to tell them when. Speaking to Den of Geek, Paul said: “We’re just waiting for the word from on high. “There’s a lot to be sorted out, like how Deadpool fits into the Marvel Universe with the other characters of the MCU. Then it’s, do the X-Men get in there at some point? Fantastic Four? There’s a lot to be sorted out and I think we’re all getting a much needed rest from Deadpool – Ryan and us and everybody.” (LAD Bible)

Before You Go: Almost immediately speculation grew about whether or not Deadpool 3 would remain in the R-rated category.

How Deadpool will fit into the MCU, and whether or not it will still be an R-rated affair, are still lingering questions of course, but a few months back co-writer Paul Wernick said Marvel had given them permission to continue making R-rated films for the Deadpool franchise. Around this same time, Reynolds posted an image of his visit to Marvel Studios, which had fans speculating about Deadpool 3 meetings. (IGN)
