Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has confirmed that Deadpool 3 will be set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

In a recent interview with Collider to promote the January 15th premiere of Marvel’s first Disney+ series WandaVision, Feige briefly gave an update on the pre-production of the Deadpool sequel and mentioned in passing that the Ryan Reynolds movie is going to be part of the MCU.

“It will be rated R and we are working on a script right now, and Ryan’s overseeing a script right now,” said Feige. “It will not be [filming] this year. Ryan is a very busy, very successful actor. We’ve got a number of things we’ve already announced that we now have to make, but it’s exciting for it to have begun. Again, a very different type of character in the MCU, and Ryan is a force of nature, which is just awesome to see him bring that character to life.”

As expected, Feige’s confirmation that Deadpool 3 is an MCU movie has delighted fans. But the news has also brought up some burning questions about what does it mean to the X-Men franchise and how the Merc with a Mouth’s fondness for vulgar language will be handled in the Disney-owned media franchise. See some of the fan reactions below:

For Deadpool and Spider-Man fans, the news is extra special as it means that a buddy film featuring Wade Wilson and Peter Parker is one step closer to becoming a real thing.

Reynolds took to social media to confirm Deadpool’s arrival in the MCU. On Instagram, the actor shared a screenshot of a tweet featuring the news and captioned it: “First order of business: Find the guy who killed Bambi’s mom. #Deadpool3.”

Reynolds is of course referring to the unseen main antagonist of the 1942 animated film Bambi who killed the titular deer’s mother ― a doing which is widely acknowledged as one of the most infamous and upsetting acts of villainy in any Disney film ever made.
