Ever since the launch of Disney’s streaming service, Disney+, the company seems content to stick to its successful model. There is no R-rated content on the platform, at least in the US. UK-based platform Disney+ added a Star section (via Tech Radar), doubling down on its content which included several R-rated productions. So where does that leave “Deadpool 3?”
While fans eagerly await news on other former Fox properties initially omitted from the Marvel Cinematic Universe like F4 and X-Men, there’s some hesitation accompanying Ryan Reynolds’ fourth crude wall breaker. The two dozen MCU movies and a handful of series are firmly in PG-13 territory, making them safe for the whole family. So what does Rob Liefeld think about his character now being in the hands of the House of Mouse?
in an interview on “The Big Thing” podcast, the creator insisted, “Am I nervous? YES!” He continued, citing concerns about the limited money-making potential of age-restricted movies: “Do I trust Disney is going to make an R-rated movie? Can you wake me up in two years and show me that it worked?” As Marvel properties begin to take darker turns with the addition of characters like Moon Night and Blade, the MCU looks set to create a more adult-friendly section of offerings. But it remains to be seen if they are ready for the “Deadpool” levels of maturity.
