After Disney bought 20th Century Fox back in 2019, fans of the R-rated "Deadpool" film franchise started raising concerns that the Regenerating Degenerate would become kid-friendly and white-washed under the Disney curtain. However, in a recent interview with Den of Geek, screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick put those fears to rest.
“Deadpool is gonna be Deadpool,” said Wernick.
The duo, who wrote the first two "Deadpool" films, talked about their excitement in having a "new backdrop" in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“It’s an absolute thrill to have the band back together, to have a new backdrop in the MCU with new characters, new villains, that kind of thing," Reese said. "You know, it’s never a marriage we necessarily saw coming, Fox and Disney, that was an external thing [apart] from our storytelling process. But we’re absolutely finding the serendipity and the gold in that situation, or we’re trying to."
The two also assured fans that their brand of superhero humor would not change as a result of partnering with Disney.
“Don’t worry about that,” said Reese. “They’ve been very supportive with regard to that. Now when it comes to a particular joke, if we cross a line, maybe we’ll hear at some point, ‘Maybe not that joke.’ But I think they’ve been incredibly supportive of what we’re doing because obviously, we were doing it separate from them for a long time, and I think they’ve seen the success and they’ve had their own even greater success. So hopefully it’ll be a marriage made in heaven. But we’ve definitely got their support, and that’s a great thing to feel.”
