People are going to be so shocked and disappointed when it comes out and is nothing like what they want/expect, despite it being an open secret for years that "R-Rated Deadpool 3" was never going to happen. Liefeld himself said that part of the hold-up was because Disney was trying to figure out how exactly to cut the balls off and do it PG-13 without inciting a riot.

I promise you, it's only even gaining traction right this minute because the first two movies were cheap, and Disney can't afford to make another $300 million blockbuster anytime soon. 6 months ago it hadn't even been on their radar in forever.

People should definitely keep their enthusiasm in check for this. Anybody who really thinks it's going to be like the original is kidding themselves and setting themselves up for a huge disappointment.

I mean, anyone who WANTS a PG-13 Deadpool might be fine with it, but... WHY would anyone want that? Kinda defeats the entire purpose.

PG-13 Deadpool won't happen. They've told us it'll be R more times than Trump has denounced white supremacy... yet people still insist.

Plus Reynolds isn't like a starving artist anymore. If it ever becomes a PG-13 hackjob I suspect he'll just walk away. They need him way more than he needs them.

From the Deadline Article

Quote:
Besides Reynolds’ return, there are many factors being worked out, but sources say the film is still expected to be rated R like the previous two installments.

According to Geekosity, Deadpool will be showing up in the Marvel Cinematic Universe but will also headline his own feature films. When he is palling around with the Avengers and Spider-Man, the Merc With a Mouth will be on his best behavior and won’t be cursing up a storm or decapitating any supervillains. When he gets to go on his own solo adventures, Wade Wilson will be as vulgar and violent as audiences would expect him to be.

We'll see, but don't play this game for money, squire. "They" haven't said a word in years, period. And every single word spoken from people "in the biz" about WHY is, "They're absolutely not going to do an R-Rated comic book movie but they don't want to say that out loud and piss off people like Andrew." Why they'd reverse course all of a sudden NOW would be a mystery ("desperation" would be one reason, but I doubt that they're there just yet). They've been doing nothing BUT trying to figure out how not to do it for a couple of years now.

When they still had blockbusters in the pipeline, "Deadpool 3" was simply not going to happen, period. They were going to very quietly wait until everyone forgot about it. They have NO impetus to start making R-rated comic book films when their entire business model is based on Saturday morning kiddie CBM stuff. One phone call from an angry Karen upsets the entire business model. It ain't happening.

Now, they can't make a blockbuster, so they dig in the drawer for something "cheap" to release instead. Thus, the revived interest in "Deadpool 3", which they haven't talked about at all in ages. But this isn't the same Disney from 30 years ago that would let "risque" projects out under other banners. This is the 2020, "No Risk/High Reward" Disney that doesn't want to "offend" anyone.

Ryan Reynolds might not be a "starving artist" anymore, BUT he also doesn't exactly do a whole lot outside of Deadpool, either. There's every chance that he just takes the check. OR, they let him go and say "So what?"

I mean, it's Disney. They'll be just fine with OR without "Deadpool 3". People operate under this silly idea that they NEED to make that movie, and that they HAVE to do it "the way fans want", but neither of those things are true in the slightest. YOU need Deadpool 3. Disney absolutely does not. "But the first made a billion dollars! They'd be STUPID not to do it!" Seriously? They made a billion dollars with a talking racoon and a bunch of no-name Z-listers. They could make "Howard the Duck" tomorrow and make a billion dollars. They crap a billion dollars.

If they think even one soccer mommy might accidentally take their kid to Deadpool 3 because they thought it was an Avengers spin-off and that they'd get an angry phone call afterwards, they're not gonna make the movie that way. It's that simple. The fact that they still want to have him be in "neutered" movies palling around with Spider-Man only lends more credence to the idea that they're not gonna go "hardcore" with the solo flicks. Disney doesn't do "market confusion" or "tiered entry" anymore. They're all-kids, all the time.

I mean, we'll see, obviously. But again, ALL I've heard for years is, "They're either not making it, OR they will but it's gonna be neutered." The PG-13 release of Deadpool 2 was a test run to see what they could get away with. Disney DOES NOT WANT to make R-Rated Deadpool movies. It's silly to think they want or have to. They don't want to, and they don't have to.

We'll see, but I'll be shocked. To try for three years to bury the entire project because they didn't wanna make it R-rated, only to abruptly reverse course and do exactly that just because they need a quick influx of cash, well... that's generally not how this company operates. So I'll be incredibly surprised to say the least. There's much less risky ways they can make a fast billion.

"Deadpool 3," particularly the first one "within" the MCU, is an event. Each of the first two made a cool billion, and that was in its own isolated corner of the lame Fox-Men verse. Something like "Shang-Chi" is... more like, "Hm, let's see what happens. Let's try this experiment."
