Writers Can't Wait
To Drop A 'Lunatic'
Into The MCU
Deadpool is joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which has raised some concerns about how Ryan Reynolds' snarky antihero will be used in the franchise. However, recent comments made by the upcoming sequel's writers should ease some of those concerns, as the character won't be like the other heroes who occupy the MCU at the moment.
During an interview with the Post Cred Pod, "Deadpool 3" scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick said that Deadpool will stand out from the pack and retain his wacky individualism. Reese said, "Deadpool is a lunatic at the center of a movie [...] To drop a lunatic into a very sane world, it's straight butter. It's going to be really fun."
Furthermore, it seems that the character will retain his satirical edge and lampoon his new MCU friends. The writers didn't expect to be given this opportunity, so they're just trying to make the most of what they have to work with.
