Recently we reported that on an episode of Live with Kelly and RyanRyan Reynolds told the co-hosts that the “whole team” was working on Deadpool 3and that it was going to be part of the Marvel family.

“Yeah we’re working on it right now with the whole team,” Reynolds said. “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.”

But one of the biggest issues with Deadpool coming into the Marvel (and Disney) family is the fact that the films as well as Ryan Reynolds’ character aren’t the most “family-friendly”.

“You know, I just hope they can get it together,” Rob Liefeld, comic writer and artist of Deadpool, told Variety before Deadpool 3 was confirmed. “Fans want it. Fans want to see it. The whole thing about Deadpool is that culture moves so fast now and two years ago feels like twenty. There were two R-rated movies — and they were R-rated movies — that together made $1.2 billion and yes, I looked at those and counted them up.”

Originally, Disney and Marvel had agreed on an R-rating for Deadpool 3but now it is being reported that they may be getting some cold feet and “re-thinking” that decision.

It’s also being reported that Ryan Reynolds apparently wants “full creative control” but that isn’t something Kevin Feige, the President of Marvel Studios, is willing to give up. Even though Reynolds seems to be fighting for it, it looks as though Disney isn’t going to commit. This isn’t uncommon though as no actor has ever gotten full creative control at Marvel Studios.

Though the R-rating is being reconsidered, that still doesn’t mean this film will be a flop. And even without the full creative control that Reynolds wants, Disney and Marvel could still decide to go with an R-rating.

Do you think Deadpool 3 should have an R-rating? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
