Ryan Reynolds's Deadpool 3, which does not yet have a date set to be made public, is rapidly becoming one of the movies fans are looking forward to seeing the most from Marvel Studios' lineup.
Fans are already enthusiastic about having the Merc with a Mouth take place in the same universe as the Avengers, even though specifics of the story are being kept under wraps and the cast is still being put together.
Although the first two Deadpool movies unquestionably take place in a world separate from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), the third installment in the trilogy has been confirmed on multiple occasions since it was announced to bring that world into the MCU.
This puts Deadpool 3 in an unusual position. It is exciting to speculate about which established characters Deadpool could interact with upon his arrival to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), but doing so opens the door to the possibility of further issues being added into the mix.
Deadpool 3's MCU Impact Teased By a Quote
Regardless of how the story develops, Marvel will need to find a method to incorporate Deadpool into the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) while preserving most of the history established in his first two films.
This will be a difficult task. As the production of this R-rated comedy continues, one of the film's writers has revealed that this is exactly what the crew plans to do to keep the momentum going.
In an interview for BroBible's Post-Credit Podcast, the writer of Deadpool 3, Rhett Reese, hinted at some of the first information for Ryan Reynolds' debut film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for people who are fish out of water. The protagonist of the film, Deadpool, is a deranged individual. Everything will go smoothly if you put a crazy person in a fairly normal environment. It is going to be a lot of enjoyable.”
Even though no concrete details have been disclosed, Reese has hinted that this will be somewhat of a “fish-out-of-water” scenario for Wade Wilson, played by Ryan Reynolds. He brought up the point that Deadpool is considered to be something of a “lunatic” in an otherwise mundane world, and they discuss how much fun it will be to watch: “We haven't seen ‘Morbius. We haven't even seen the memes. But we are keeping an eye on it now.”
Dropping Deadpool into the Marvel Cinematic Universe
Reese and her co-writer Paul Wernick addressed the memes that tie back to Sony Pictures' Morbius during the same interview, and both of them admitted that they hadn't watched the movie or the memes.
However, they did address the memes that tie back to Morbius. The two joked that now that it's “on their radar,” they'll “had to” work a Morbius pun into Deadpool 3 in some way:
The fact that Deadpool can break the fourth wall in his unique way makes it pretty simple for Marvel Studios to decide to bring him over from the Fox universe to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Even though the particulars of that transition are still being worked out, it seems as though Ryan Reynolds will be able to carry over the same version of Wade Wilson from his first two Deadpool movies into his third one.
As Wade struggles to get used to his new environment and the new people he can communicate with, the “fish-out-of-water” storyline should make for an exciting movie.
#Deadpool3 writers say it's a 'fish-out-of-water' story
“Deadpool is a lunatic at the center of a movie. To drop a lunatic into a very sane world, it’s straight butter”

Finally, getting the opportunity to meet some of the heroes and villains that he's referenced in his fourth-wall breaks is going to throw him for a loop, but it's not going to take him too long to settle in, so don't worry about him being too out of place.
Regarding Morbius, the flop superhero movie starring Jared Leto that Sony Pictures produced appears to be the prime candidate for receiving the Deadpool treatment of any film released in the recent past.
The movie did poorly at the box office, but that was just the beginning of its problems; once it left theatres, it became the target of one nasty meme. It is safe to conclude that if there is somebody who could genuinely shout the words “It's Morbin Time” and get a reaction out of viewers, it would be Ryan Reynolds' potty-mouthed jokester and prankster character in the show.
Now that it will be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), the third solo Deadpool movie has an incredible opportunity to leave its mark on the world of comic book movies regardless of how the story specifics come together.
