The Writers of Deadpool 3 React to Almost Being Replaced by Marvel Studios 

Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool series has been on pause since Disney purchased the former X-Men studio, after two successful solo features in 2016 and 2018. Deadpool 3 has just began to move forward, with the writers from the previous films returning to compose the screenplay and Free Guy’s Shawn Levy joining as director. 

Despite promises from Disney and Marvel Studios, Fox fans are anxious that the Merc with a Mouth may shed his R-rated outrageousness for an MCU mainstay PG-13 classification. These worries were exacerbated when the writers of the previous two films, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, were replaced with Bob’s Burgers writers, but thankfully, the original crew is back. 

The authors of the prequels have revealed the writing process for their first MCU attempt as the highly anticipated third feature approaches production and eventual release.

The authors of the prequels have revealed the writing process for their first MCU attempt as the highly anticipated third feature approaches production and eventual release. 

The Deadpool 3 Writers Discuss Joining the MCU The

Deadpool 3 writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who wrote the previous two installments in the trilogy, responded to Marvel Studios’ initial intention to replace them with Bob’s Burgers’ Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin in a recent interview with The Playlist. 

Reese said that “that did happen,” but added that they’re glad to be back “in the crazy scientist lab making entertaining stuff:” 

“Yes, it did occur. And have a peek… The basic line is that it simply happened the way it did, but we’re glad to be back. We couldn’t be happier right now in the mad scientist lab doing interesting things, and maybe we’ll be able to get a movie out to you guys soon.” The author then expressed their resolve to “make it amazing.” Reese referred to the third installment as a “marriage between Fox and Disney,” vowing to “blend those… worlds:” 

“We want to make it fantastic.” We’re constantly working on it in the lab with Ryan Reynolds, and we’re having a great time. So, hopefully, that translates and will eventually amuse the rest of the globe. But, you know, it’s a marriage between Fox and Disney, and it’s a marriage of two distinct worlds that won’t be simple. But it’s also a fantastic challenge and, you know, high-level issue to be able to connect those, those worlds. So, we’re having a good time.” 

The interviewer then inquired as to what has been delaying the picture, querying if the franchise’s R-Rated nature or Deadpool’s Mutant nature is an issue, to which Reese said, “yes and no.” He did, however, assuage fears about integrating the Merc with a Mouth into the MCU by pledging that Disney would “let Deadpool be Deadpool:” 

“I mean, both yes and no.” Obviously, it’s two whole distinct regimes, right? So there are two distinct bureaucracies. It was Fox, all these various individuals, and it’s no longer those people. It is these [Disney] folks that do things their way. And we were used to doing things our way, so there are differences, but I think the great part is that Marvel’s been incredibly supportive. They are gonna let Deadpool be Deadpool, you know? It’s not like any single joke will be the one that people say, ‘you know, that’s too far,’ but so far, it’s been nothing but support.” 

Discussing the support Disney and Marvel Studios have offered, Reese promised they have been eager to help, make their life easier, and offer up content from the MCU for use: 

“It’s all been ‘how can we assist you?'” ‘What would you want to utilize from our universe?’ ‘How can we make your life easier?’ And we’re just going to let Deadpool be Deadpool. We’re not… this is not going to be the Disney-fied ‘Deadpool.’ So they’re fantastic, and now it’s up to us to live up to that trust.” 

Reese finished by reiterating previous assertions that Deadpool 3 would “definitely” remain R-rated since Disney will not “mess with the tone,” although there is a slight possibility that this may change: 

“Unquestionably. They’re not going to change the tone. I mean, I’d never say never, and there’s always the possibility, but we’ve always been told it can be R-[rated], and we’re acting as if it is. We’ve always preferred R, and I don’t believe that will change.” 

What Will MCU Deadpool Look Like? The

Marvel Studios has yet to produce a project with the Deadpool franchise’s level of violence, vulgarity, sex, and outrageousness. The closest the Disney-owned company has gone to approaching the notorious heights of an R-rating was Moon Knight, and even that had a very PG-13 vibe about it. 

With these previous constraints in mind, there is reason to be concerned that Deadpool 3 will be “Disney-fied” to appeal to the PG-13 audience. However, if the movie’s authors’ remarks are to be believed, as well as previous assertions from Disney and Marvel Studios officials, the third part in the trilogy will be just as adult-oriented as the first two. 

In the comics, the Marvel world has always been immensely diverse; there is literally a hero and series for every age range. Hopefully, Deadpool 3 will be the first step toward introducing more adult material to the MCU, paving the way for R-rated movies starring The Punisher, Daredevil, and the Midnight Sons. 

Even if Deadpool should stay as insane as ever in his own movie, it doesn’t mean the Merc with a Mouth can’t appear in PG-13 films. Perhaps Ryan Reynolds’ Mutant could still feature in different team-ups, but with the gore dialed down to Moon Knight levels and the profanity dialed down, all while maintaining the normal cheeky tone. 

Deadpool 3 looks set to bring the anti-hero out of Fox’s X-Men universe and into the main MCU timeline, presumably through Multiverse-hopping. This might mean goodbye appearances for certain classic X-Men characters while also allowing for the inclusion of MCU fan favorites – Chris Hemsworth’s Thor has already been mentioned as one option. 

With Reynolds back in the costume, the same writers handling the screenplay, and Shawn Levy at the helm, the future of Deadpool seems to be in safe hands. Deadpool 3 has yet to be released, but with scripting now underway, 2024 may be a fair prediction.

Doctor Strange 2 : Scarlet Witch vs. Strange Deleted Fight Scene – FanArt

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness stunned fans straight away by revealing that the Scarlet Witch will be the film’s principal adversary. This resulted in some really fantastic battle sequences between the MCU’s two most powerful magic-wielders, but there’s been a lot of talk about more of it appearing in deleted scenes.

The majority of that attention has been focused on the sequel’s abandoned opening scene, in which Wanda Maximoff would have killed Earth-616’s Baron Mordo. She would have decapitated him and gave Strange the severed head when they first met at the farm, leaving little mistake about who Strange would face during Doctor Strange 2.

Over the last several months, concept art has also hinted more deleted sequences, including a flashback to Strange losing his sister at the lake and a tease showing the wicked Nightmare in action. Fans can now see more deleted Scarlet Witch action, which would have pitted her against Strange once again early in the Multiversal sequel.

Doctor Strange 2’s Deleted Scarlet Witch Battle Illustrator David Allcock released a collection of storyboard drawings including a previously uncovered deleted sequence from Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness through Twitter user @itsjustanx. This scenario would have pitted Doctor Strange against the Scarlet Witch as Strange and America Chavez jumped across the Multiverse after leaving Kamar-Taj.

Strange uses his magic to free Chavez from the Scarlet Witch’s grasp while Chavez opens one of her star portals.

The scene when Chavez falls through with the blue light from her portal around her in-frame seems very similar to what appeared in the final cut of the film.

It would have had the Scarlet Witch really pursue Strange and Chavez into the star gate, employing images similar to those seen before when the villain was pushing through mirrors.

Along with Wanda pursuing the heroic team, they would have encountered other demons while traversing the Multiverse. There was even a chance they’d run across one of the more sinister Strange Variants, akin to how Earth-616’s good doctor confronted Sinister Strange at the conclusion of the narrative.

As the Scarlet Witch pursued Strange and Chavez, she would release more of her actual power, which she had garnered while delving into the pages of the Darkhold.

In her chase, the villain would have seized Chavez by the wrist, however it’s uncertain whether the action would have progressed as it did in the final edit of Doctor Strange 2.

Marvel Parallels Avoided With Deleted Scene?

New Doctor Strange 2 Art Reveals Deleted Scarlet Witch vs. Strange Fight

With Doctor Strange 2 clocking in at little over two hours, it’s hardly unexpected that so many deleted scenes and concept art have been published now that the film has come and gone. This sequence would have certainly added a couple of minutes to the running length, although it’s unclear whether it would have come with the universe-jumping scene or taken its place entirely.

Furthermore, given Marvel’s vast history, this deleted battle has some resemblance to another sequence seen by fans in 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok, which starred Thor, Loki, and Hela. This three got into a similar brawl when Loki summoned the Bifrost to transport him and Thor to Asgard, prompting Hela to leap in and fling them over the rainbow bridge into the uncharted realms of space.

In the end, it looks that this confrontation between Doctor Strange and the Scarlet Witch was never even pre-visualized, since this is the first time fans have seen this scene shown in public. While it would have undoubtedly provided another fantastic combat scene to the already packed film, leaving it out maintained some of the emphasis on Strange and America as they began their first journey across the Multiverse.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is now available to watch on Disney+.

Spider-Man: No Way Home Extended Cut Trailer Is Now Available

Spider-Man: No Way Home, the third-highest-grossing MCU film ever, is poised to return to cinemas across the globe in the coming weeks. Sony and Marvel are

Spider-Man: No Way Home, the third-highest-grossing MCU film ever, is poised to return to cinemas across the globe in the coming weeks. Sony and Marvel are preparing to send fans back to the MCU’s first real Multiversal event, “The More Fun Stuff Version,” when Tom Holland’s third and largest solo Spidey trip takes a second run on the big screen.

The extended edit of No Way Home will feature 11 minutes of material that did not make the initial theatrical release in December 2021, according to reports. More material starring Charlie Cox’s “very smart lawyer,” Matt Murdock, as well as other exchanges with Holland and the two other Spider-Men, portrayed by Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield, are possible.

The advertising tour for the new No Way Home extended cut began with a new poster that included all three Spider-Men, as well as all five villains and a scattering of supporting characters. This promotional tour now continues with a new trailer for the film, however it doesn’t exactly include any…new stuff.

New Trailer for No Way Home Extended Cut

Watch: Spider-Man: No Way Home Extended Cut Trailer Released

Sony Pictures has published a 30-second clip for Spider-Man: No Way Home’s theatrical re-release, which begins on August 31 in Indonesia.

Surprisingly, despite the promise that fresh material would be added in this edit, this teaser has no new footage.

The commercial focuses mostly on Peter’s struggles with the film’s five Multiversal antagonists, including Happy Hogan’s phone conversation in which he asks Peter who they are all. The closing scene of the teaser depicts Peter leaping into fight against the criminals, with the other two Spider-Men cut out, but the Lizard is still hit by the air, exactly as he was in the second trailer.

The whole trailer is available below:

Sony is back with another Spider-Man trailer.

Sony Pictures rocketed to the top of the entertainment business with the original release of Spider-Man: No Way Home, despite a difficult couple of years of releases. The studio had its most successful film ever, shattering box office records and generating over $2 billion in its first run.

Despite the hype for the “More Fun Stuff Version,” Sony made no attempt to tease anything new that would be presented in this new edit of the threequel. The studio didn’t even bother to replace the scene of all three Spider-Men leaping into fight on the Statue of Liberty, instead settling for the error-filled picture in which the Lizard is assaulted by a secret figure.

Regardless of these gaffes, anticipation is growing for what Sony and Marvel have in store with material not included in the initial December 2021 edit. And, if nothing else, the threequel is still one of the most popular superhero films in history, which should be plenty to entice fans to return to the big screen a few more times.

Marvel’s Biggest Multiverse Reveal Is Wasted

This article contains Edge of Spider-Verse #2 spoilers.Marvel Comics squandered their most significant multiverse disclosure. Multiverses may be trendy rig

This article contains Edge of Spider-Verse #2 spoilers.

Marvel Comics squandered their most significant multiverse disclosure. Multiverses may be trendy right now, but Marvel Comics has been using the notion for decades. The finest multiverse tales allow you to ponder the question “What If…?” – to picture universes where heroes were beaten instead of triumphing, planets were broken, or entire new champions created. Sometimes these “What If…?” tales help to establish concepts that will ultimately make their way into the regular comic book narrative, and maybe even into the movies themselves. In the comics, Jane Foster initially appeared as Thor.

Edge of Spider-Verse #2 features “A Single Thread,” a short narrative by Dan Slott and Paco Medina that has just been used to change the history and nature of the entire Marvel world. The universe started untold billions of years ago, long after the ancient Elder Gods were expelled, according to Edge of Spider-Verse #2. Gaea and Oshtur started producing new gods and demigods, and they entrusted the construction of the universe to the early spider-goddess Neith. She fashioned the Web of Life and Destiny, which is centered on Earth-001. Finally, the Spider-hidden Verse’s genesis has been exposed.

Marvel has just rewritten the structure of the whole multiverse.

It’s odd, though, that Marvel practically squandered such a big disclosure. The real nature of the universe is introduced in what seems to be a tangent or side-story to the main event, rather than in a large ” event ” issue with a great amount of hype behind it. This choice is even more astounding considering the importance of multiverses in popular culture, and Marvel Comics’ own multiverse is now serving as inspiration for the MCU’s. Spider-Man: No Way Home, like the comics, has established spider-characters as prominent players in the universe.

Marvel Wastes Its Biggest Multiverse Reveal

To be fair to Marvel, Edge of Spider-Verse #2 does have some backstory. The first Edge of Spider-Verse miniseries debuted with the original Spider-Verse storyline in 2014, and its second issue featured the famous Spider-Gwen. Marvel may have decided to make the second issue of this new Edge of Spider-Verse miniseries seem just as important – but if so, the comic book publisher could have pushed it more aggressively.

It’s enthralling to discover the real genesis and nature of the MCU’s cosmos. The important issue is whether it will survive much longer; this tie-in is tied with the End of the Spider-Verse event, implying that the multiverse’s laws are going to be altered. Marvel’s universe has been defined, but it may not last.
