“Deadpool” star Ryan Reynolds has confirmed that a third chapter of his vulgar superhero hit is coming, and that he’s working intimately with Marvel Studios to bring it to life.

“We’re working on it right now with the whole team,” Reynolds said. “We’re over at Marvel, which is the big leagues all of a sudden. It’s kind of crazy.”

The first two Deadpool films were rated R, which poses an interesting conundrum for Kevin Feige. Could this be Marvel Studios’s first “mature” film?

Deadpool was one of the few characters owned outright by a studio other than Disney, but came home to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and his team in Disney’s $71.3 billion Fox acquisition in March. Reynolds, who stars as the titular mercenary with lewd jokes and impressive regenerating capabilities, developed the first two films with Fox film leadership.
