If hired, Levy will be the third director in three Deadpool films. The first Deadpool movie was directed by special effects guru Tim Miller, while David Leitch of John Wick fame took over directing duties for the sequel.
Deadpool 3 has been confirmed to be officially part of the MCU and, yes, it will be R-rated according to Kevin Feige.
Bob’s Burgers writers Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Logelin are handling the script for the movie that will officially bring the Merc with a mouth to the Marvel universe.
The Deadpool movies, based on the character created by Rob Liefeld, were originally produced through 20th Century Fox alongside the other X-Men movies. But Disney acquired the company and with it the X-Men characters.
Deadpool isn’t the only character joining the MCU. The new trailer for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness suggests that the X-Men and other mutants are coming to the MCU sooner than you think.
