10 MCU Movies That Could Fill Marvel Studios' Empty Release Slots
With Disney, and subsequently Marvel Studios, now having access to the cast of characters previously operating under the Fox banner, there has been a big question around how to integrate these new characters. Have the Fox movies been taking place in a separate universe, as would appear to be the case with Sony’s previous Spider-Man movies? Will there be a complete reboot? Should these characters be recast?
One character that simply cannot be recast, and the only one so far confirmed to be stepping into the MCU, is Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool. When tackling the issue of jumping from Fox to Disney, this is a character that could outright address it and make a joke of it in his next appearance.
The movie has already been confirmed to be the MCU’s only R-Rated project, with the Molyneux Sisters being brought in to write, with the help of Reynolds himself. Any other details on the project are currently scarce, including a release date.
However, with the development process at least under way, Deadpool 3 is likely to take one of the soonest blank release dates, with the Merc with the Mouth potentially returning to screens before the end of 2023.
