This might be a blow to some fans, Director David Leitch says the upcoming movie for Deadpool 3 might not have an R-rating.
Disney is in debate to keep the R-rated Deadpool film in sync with the two major successful previous films at Fox, while also finding a way to merge the character crossover into the family-friendly Marvel Cinematic Universe(MCU).
The Marvel heroes which include X-Men, Deadpool, and Fantastic Four now fall under the direction of Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige.
Editor Brent Lang said there may be debates inside Disney and Marvel Studios as to whether or not Deadpool can still remain as an R-rated standalone while also appearing in PG-13 rated films.
Iger notes X-Men, Deadpool, Fantastic 4 are now under Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige's control. Hear from sources that there are debates about whether Deadpool can move seamlessly between R-rated solo outings and PG-13 rated MCU movies.
