“Deadpool 3” is officially in the works, and it’ll finally be apart of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It's also likely to be the first MCU movie that's rated R--but fans won't see it for at least a couple of years. 

This new film is still in the scriptwriting stage, so production isn’t set to begin until 2022, at the earliest, according to Collider.

With the move from Fox to Disney, many believed that if "Deadpool" were to move over to the MCU it would have to be rated PG-13, but Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirmed that's not the case.

“It will be rated R and we are working on a script right now, and Ryan’s overseeing a script right now… It will not be [filming] this year,” Feige said, blaming the delay on both star/producer Ryan Reynolds' schedule and the jam-packed Marvel Cinematic Universe slate.

Reynolds is working on the script with writers (and sisters) Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin and Wendy Molyneux.

“Ryan is a very busy, very successful actor. We’ve got a number of things we’ve already announced that we now have to make, but it’s exciting for it to have begun. Again, a very different type of character in the MCU, and Ryan is a force of nature, which is just awesome to see him bring that character to life.”

Deadpool is considered an “anti-hero,” but he still fights crime to save civilians. He’s known to have a foul mouth and make inappropriate jokes. He also has the power to regenerate, AKA healing powers because of the Weapon X program. 

The character was part of the separate X-Men universe, which was owned by 20th Century Fox. Now that Disney owns the movie studio, Marvel Studios is incorporating the Fox characters into the MCU, which includes heroes like The Avengers and Black Panther. 

“Deadpool,” “Deadpool 2” and “Deadpool 3” are all rated R. While the plot hasn’t been revealed yet, it’s sure to bring audiences to theaters since the first two movies did incredible at the box office. 

“Deadpool,” released in 2016, made $782.6 million globally, while “Deadpool 2,” released in 2018, made $785.7 million worldwide.

Many fans are ecstatic about “Deadpool” moving to MCU and can’t wait for the premiere.
