How Deadpool 3 Is Different Under Disney Explained By Returning Fox X-Men Franchise Star

Deadpool 3 will be the first of its series produced as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and one of the franchise’s returning stars is opening up about how the movie will be different as part of Marvel Studios. The X-Men may be getting rebooted for the MCU, but Wade Wilson will stay the same as Ryan Reynolds is officially joining the same world as the Avengers. Deadpool 3 will see Wade get integrated into the MCU, setting him up for more adventures down the line.
One of the big questions about Deadpool 3 is how it will be executed as a Disney/Marvel Studios movie, as they haven’t previously released andy R-rated movies. However, one of the returning cast members on Deadpool 3 stresses that nothing is getting toned because of Disney. In a recent interview with Comic Book, Karan Soni, who has played Dopinder since the first movie, spoke about his experience coming back for the sequel and how fans shouldn’t be worried about the quality of Wade’s latest installment, stating the following:

I have begun working on that one, so I can say that it is the same as the other two. It’s like hard R. There’s a lot of that stuff. So it does not feel different. The only thing that, for me, is different is that I have not gotten the script this time. The other two, we did get it, it’s a big difference, at least for me, the MCU part of it vs. the Fox/Marvel part of it. They’re so strict. So I’ve only seen glimpses of what I’m in.

When I did some of the stuff, I saw some things that I didn’t know were in the thing. I think, I would just say it this way: Ryan [Reynolds] doesn’t need to do any of these movies unless he gets to do his version of it and he is such a star, and, I don’t need to say this, a creative genius. He’s taking this opportunity and really pushing everything and, definitely, he’s doing a lot of cool stuff. I feel very optimistic about it. Him and [director] Shawn [Levy], they work so well together, that I think it will be really exciting for people to see how they take their collaborations that they’ve done, now successfully twice, in this new version and play in this massive sandbox with a lot of stuff. It is very, very exciting. I will not underestimate Ryan Reynolds.

Everything We Know About How Deadpool 3 Will Be Different In The MCU

While Deadpool 3 is going to be R-rated, it still begs the question of how the movie will still work through the MCU lens. With the movie still filming, Deadpool 3 is facing one restriction that the past movies didn’t have, as Reynolds isn’t allowed to do any improv. Because of the ongoing Writers Guild of America strike, Reynolds has to stick to the script that was written prior to the strike by him, Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick, Zeb Wells, and director Shawn Levy.
Whether that will be a problem for Reynolds as a performer remains to be seen, as he will likely be asked about it in interviews when they start promoting Deadpool 3. In general, it doesn’t seem like Kevin Feige has any plans to make significant changes to the Deadpool 3 character simply because he will be under the MCU umbrella. Knowing what made the Deadpool movies successful, it would be a big risk for Feige to mess with a recipe that has already proven to work.
For now, the bigger question is when a first proper look at Deadpool 3 will be released. Since Marvel Studios is skipping San Diego Comic-Con this summer, it will likely be some time until they start promoting the movie, which may have to wait until the WGA strike comes to an end. But with everything that is known about Deadpool 3, there is already a lot to look forward to when the movie arrives in 2024.
