Deadpool 3: First Story Details Revealed
"Morbius" is also said to be the subject of some jokes
It was only recently that we reported on the upcoming "Deadpool 3" and the statements made by the two screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. They expressed confidence regarding the third installment, even though not every single joke may be approved by Disney. Now the two authors had a chance to talk in the Post-Credit Podcast, where, besides other things, the Sony flop "Morbius" was mentioned. Based on what they said, Reese and Wernick haven't seen the movie at all, but: given the amount of memes, they won't be able to avoid including a "Morbius" gag here and there. They likewise clarified that Deadpool would also be an integral part of the MCU in the future, although they remained silent on the exact plans to bring it all together.
Reese also spoke of a so-called "fish-out-of-water comedy" in the case of "Deadpool 3". This is a metaphor that in the world of movies means that the protagonist is plunged into a completely foreign world. A classic example of this would be a typical country dweller who is suddenly exposed to the big city life. In the case of Deadpool, we are talking more about a crazy anti-hero who has to survive in a world full of superheroes. The union of Deadpool and the MCU certainly holds some potential. A first preview is already provided by a video from Disney released in the Summer of 2021, which shows the mercenary together with Korg as they watch and comment on "Free Guy" in typical YouTube Reaction manner.
It is unfortunately not known yet when "Deadpool 3" will hit theaters, but a release prior to the end of 2023 is considered highly unlikely.
