Why Marvel Rejected Ryan Reynolds’ Original Deadpool 3 Pitch

“Deadpool 3” had a wildly different narrative before Marvel purchased Fox and Hugh Jackman signed on to star in the threequel. Ultimately, the film had to be restructured to fit into the wider MCU, becoming the franchise’s first R-rated entry. Since Marvel Studios faced its fair share of woes in 2023 and Disney CEO Bob Iger announced major changes to Marvel, all eyes are on how “Deadpool 3” will perform critically and commercially. Ryan Reynolds and Kevin Feige worked diligently to find the best possible story; Reynolds kept tinkering because it was crucial to get Deadpool’s MCU debut right. “I went back to the drawing board, and I wrote up about 18 different treatments,” he admitted. 

One of his ideas? A low-budget Deadpool flick that would have been a sight to see. “Some of them [were] almost like a Sundance film, a budget of under $10 million, sort of using the IP in a way that they previously hadn’t used, and I pitched bigger movies, and I pitched things in-between,” Reynolds said. Based on the “Deadpool & Wolverine” footage we’ve seen, the picture looks to strike a fine balance between Marvel’s typical shtick, while still delivering an emotional narrative that justifies Wolverine’s inclusion.

“Deadpool & Wolverine” arrives on July 26.
