Deadpool 3 is moving forward at Marvel Studios. Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin are penning a script for the Ryan Reynolds sequel, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
This is the first project from the properties Disney inherited from Fox when it acquired the studio, which held the rights Marvel characters such as Fantastic Four and X-Men.
There will be new writers this time around, however. According to Deadline, Reynolds and Disney have tapped sisters Wendy Molyneaux and Lizzie Molyneaux-Loeglin to write Deadpool 3. While they may not be household names just yet, the Molyneaux sisters are writers on the rise, having worked on Bob’s Burgers for several years. Their new series, The Great North, is set to premiere on FOX in 2021 and has already been renewed for a second season.
Deadline’s Justin Kroll, who broke the news, took to Twitter to clear some things up about the Deadpool franchise, noting that the third installment is still going to be R-rated. There have been concerns that Marvel would want to tone Deadpool down in order to work him into the MCU. Fortunately, those two things are not mutually exclusive, and his foul mouth will continue in the third movie.
