Disney’s recent acquisition of 21st Century Fox is leaving many wondering what this will mean for the networks R-rated movies including Marvel’s Deadpool franchise.
However, according to a recent piece in the Hollywood Reporter, it looks like fans of the film will be safe. Bob Iger addressed the future of Ryan Reynolds’ character during a recent press conference.
According to Iger, ” Deadpool clearly has been and will be Marvel branded. But we think there might be an opportunity for a Marvel-R brand for something like Deadpool. As long as we let audiences know what’s coming, we think we can manage that fine.”
However, that didn’t stop Ryan Reynolds from making the following joke on his Twitter account earlier today:

Only time will tell what the merger means for more adult films using Marvels X-Men characters such as Deadpool, Wolverine and the Fantastic Four. But for right now the future looks promising.
