Deadpool 3 Moving Forward At Disney With New Writers

Deadpool 3 Moving Forward At Disney With New Writers

Bob's Burgers writers Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin are set to write the third film in the Deadpool movie series.

Deadpool 3 is officially happening at Disney, with new writers tapped to pen the script.

Disney has recently acquired the rights to Deadpool, following the company's purchase of Fox and its movie assets, including X-Men and Fantastic Four.

But while the last two films are known for having a PG-13/12 rating, which fits nicely with Disney's banner, Deadpool films are known for violence and explicit language.

Fans worried about The Merc with a Mouth's future with Disney, an entertainment company that primarily creates shows and movies for children.

Fortunately, fans should not worry about Deadpool changing to accommodate Disney's child-friendly image.

Deadpool is confirmed to return for a third film without being censored!

Sources revealed to Deadline that Deadpool 3 is expected to be R rated, just like its previous 2 installments. 


Ryan Reynolds is confirmed to reprise the titular role with the help of Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige.

Speaking about the film's transition from Marvel to Disney, Reynolds said back in May this year:

"It’s just all so new with it being over at Marvel now, and, you know, figuring out the ins and outs as much as I can, from where I sit. We’ll see," Reynolds said via Games Radar.

Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin are officially set to pen the script.

The sisters are behind Bob's Burgers, an animated sitcom that won an Emmy in 2017 and has been nominated for eight consecutive years.

They also serve as the creators, showrunners, and executive producers of the new Fox series The Great North, which is scheduled to release in February.

The Deadpool team teased the upcoming collaboration with an adorable picture of Bob Belcher holding a plate of burgers with a Katana on his back, just like Deadpool's. 


The Molyneux sisters secured the writing project after a series of writer meetings over the past month. Reynolds met with a number of screenwriters to hear their pitches for the upcoming film, and needless to say, the Molyneux sisters' idea stood out.

Adding to their list of accolades is the Annie Award in 2017, which they took home for their episode “The Hormone-iums,” and not to mention the three nominations for WGA Awards.

Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick wrote the previous Deadpool films. The two reportedly started working on a draft for the third film but has since been dropped.

Deadpool 3 is also expected to hire a new director. David Leitch, who directed the second film, has his calendar filled through 2021, and the fact that he was not present during the writer's meet makes it unlikely for him to join the team in Deadpool 3.

Deadpool 3 is yet to announce a release date, but the film can finally move forward with the new writers on board.
