The writers of Deadpool 3 have said Disney has taken a ‘very hands-off’ approach to the script for the upcoming flick.

Fans of the foul-mouthed antihero, played by Ryan Reynolds, were concerned that with Deadpool joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which is owned by Disney, the character’s usual R-rated antics would be cleaned up. 

However, you’ll all be pleased to know that writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have now confirmed that they’re being left to it when it comes to the script. 

In an interview with Discussing Film, Reese said the company had been supportive but ‘very hands-off’ allowing them to do what they wanted with the movie.

When asked how it was to be working under the MCU for the first time, he replied: “It’s almost like putting on a comfy old sweater.

"Marvel’s really given us the support to maintain the tone and the vision that we have for it. They’ve been very hands-off and supportive, but they’ve also let us do what we do. 

“So really, it’s just been fun. We’re mad scientists back in the laboratory again. Deadpool is our favourite who will always be the character I think we’re most associated with, and we’re very grateful for being allowed to write him again. 

“So it’s a blast. It’s like going back to school again after having summer off. It’s pretty fun.”

This isn’t the first time the writing duo have attempted to reassure fans that a switch to the MCU won’t change things for the character. 

Earlier this year, in an interview with Playlist, the pair insisted the sequel wouldn't be ‘Disney-fied’.

Reese said: “We were used to doing things our way, so there are differences, but I think the great part is that Marvel’s been incredibly supportive.

“They are going to let Deadpool be Deadpool, you know? It’s not like any particular joke may be the one that they say, ‘you know, that's too far,’ that could happen, but to this point, it’s been nothing but support.

He went on: “It’s been nothing but, ‘how can we help you? What from our universe would you like to use? How, how can we make your life easy?’ And we’re going to let Deadpool be Deadpool

“This is not going to be the Disney-fied Deadpool. So they're awesome, and now it’s up to us to come through and justify that faith.”
