Many fans of Deadpool have been nervous about the Disney/Fox merger as it seemed that our rated R friend was going to be shelved for more PG-rated films once the merger took place. Disney hardly seems the place to make an R rated film so it seemed that Mr. Pool was all but a thing of the past. However, it seems that it has been confirmed that there are no plans to retire the Deadpool franchise! As a matter of fact, we may see more of it very soon! Disney confirmed at the recent Cinemacon that Deadpool, played by Ryan Reynolds, will be featured in future movies!
“You’ll be seeing more of Deadpool in the years to come”
Disney chairman Alan Horn said, assuring consumers over the beloved character. Ryan is a brilliant actor who has brought laughter on and off the screen. He is already a Disney fan and has been welcomed by both actors in the Disney and Marvel Universe with open arms.

The 2016 film “Deadpool” grossed $783 million worldwide while its 2018 sequel “Deadpool 2″ grossed $785 million worldwide, according to Box Office Mojo. The first “Deadpool” was the highest-grossing R-rated film ever, and the biggest box office success for Fox since “Avatar.”
“There are clear upsides and intrigue around a potential meet-up between Deadpool and the Avengers, but it shouldn’t be done just because they can”
said Shawn Robbins, chief analyst for Boxoffice.com. “Disney doesn’t have any pressing need to mix Deadpool into their existing universe because it’s proven enormously successful without him, and he without it. A managed coexistence could be just as or more lucrative.”

“We do believe there is room for the Fox properties to exist without significant Disney influence over the nature of the content, meaning that we see that there is certainly popularity amongst Marvel fans for the R-rated Deadpool films, as a for instance. We’re going to continue in that business, and there might be room for more of that.”
Iger continued: “There’s nothing that we’ve really seen in the Fox either library or in the activities that Fox is engaging in today from a standards perspective that would be of concern to us as long as we’re very carefully branding them and making sure that we’re not in any way confusing the consumer with product that would be sort of either Disney product or the more traditional Marvel product.”
