Fans of the Merc with a Mouth have been worried about what Deadpool 3 might look like following Disney’s purchase of Fox, but writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are assuring them that the character will retain his off-color humor. There could even be more jokes now, as they have access to even more MCU content. Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige has said that Deadpool 3 will be R-rated. Wernick said that “Deadpool is gonna be Deadpool,” while Reese talked about Disney’s support for the team.

“It’s a thrill,” Reese says when asked about their new Marvel home. “It’s an absolute thrill to have the band back together, to have a new backdrop in the MCU with new characters, new villains, that kind of thing. You know, it’s never a marriage we necessarily saw coming—Fox and Disney, that was an external thing [separate] from our storytelling process. But we’re absolutely finding the serendipity and the gold in that situation, or we’re trying to.”

“Don’t worry about that,” adds Reese. “They’ve been very supportive with regard to that. Now when it comes to a particular joke, if we cross a line, maybe we’ll hear at some point, ‘Maybe not that joke.’ But I think they’ve been incredibly supportive of what we’re doing, because obviously we were doing it separate from them for a long time, and I think they’ve seen the success and they’ve had their own even greater success. So hopefully it’ll be a marriage made in heaven. But we’ve definitely got their support, and that’s a great thing to feel.”
