Deadpool 3 is the only R-Rated MCU movie in development: Kevin Feige

While speaking at a Television Critics Association (TCA) panel, Kevin Feige talked about the PG-13 rating that every MCU movie has had up until now and whether Deadpool 3 will set a precedent for future R-Rated movies from the studio's stables.

Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige has revealed that beside Deadpool 3, the company has so far no plans to make an R-Rated movie. He also revealed that the movie is in development at the studio.

The idea of a fourth-wall breaking, self-aware, comic-book anti-hero mutant is still fresh and Marvel is continuining with the franchise, though the X-Men franchise will likely see a hard reboot.

While speaking at a Television Critics Association (TCA) panel, Feige talked about the PG-13 rating that every MCU movie has had up until now and whether Deadpool 3 will set a precedent for future R-Rated movies from the studio’s stables.

“We have never been held back by it,” he said, “If we ever are, then certainly there could be a discussion to be had …. but that just hasn’t been the case yet.” Deadpool 3 will bring back Ryan Reynolds as wisecracking, katana-wielding Wade Wilson who was disfigured after a guy promised him an experimental treatment for his cancer. The treatment also gave him near-invulnerability, superhuman strength and healing abilities.
