Now that the Disney/Fox deal has been completed one of the biggest questions will be what happens to Deadpool one of the hottest film characters today? Well Bob Iger is aware and plans to move forward with the character.
According to Ben Fritz of The Wall Street Journal, Deadpool now being a Disney property doesn’t rule out the possibility of seeing more R-rated installments under the Marvel banner. Check out Fritz’s full tweet below to see what Iger had to say on the matter:
Iger specifically calls out "Deadpool," wants to keep making sequels. "There may be an opportunity for an R-rated Marvel brand as long as we let audiences know what’s coming."

Igers comments should encourage some fans out there who were worried that Disney might water down the character moving forward. Igers comments could possibly open the door for other R-rated films in the MCU maybe Ghost Rider? It’s unlikely today’s deal affects the X-Men films coming out this year (X-Men: Dark Phoenix, The New Mutants, and Deadpool 2) however a lot of questions will for 2019 and beyond will need to answered.
What do you think of this? Would you like to see the Marvel Cinematic Universe take on an R-rated film or two? Let us know in the comments.
