Marvel preps for a busy Phase 4
Marvel announced their full slate of Phase 4 projects last summer. Fans will see several projects hit the big screens over the next two years, including Black Widow, The Eternals, Shang-Chi and the Ten-Ring Legend, Doctor Strange in Madness's Multiverse, Thor: Love and Thunder, and Blade.
Marvel also has a slew of TV shows in Disney+'s works, like Falcon and The Winter Soldier, WandaVision, Loki, What If ...? Ms. Marvel, Ms. Hawkeye, She-Hulk and Moon Knight
Those projects were on schedule until production was delayed by the coronavirus pandemic. All of Marvel's Phase 4 films have since been pushed back for several months, with Black Widow now leading the charge instead of May in November (assuming things stay on track from here on out).
With Marvel having a packed schedule for the next two years, Liefeld will see no room for Deadpool 3 until after the end of Phase 4. The earliest slot for Deadpool 3 is in autumn 2022, depending on when Blade is released.
Rob Liefeld shares his thoughts on why ‘Deadpool 3’ has been delayed
With Deadpool 3 apparently a way off, Liefeld has placed the blame squarely on the shoulders of Marvel and Feige. Liefeld argued in an interview with ComicBook.com that Marvel delayed Deadpool 3 because the franchise does not fit the Marvel Cinematic Universe vision of the studio.
"I blame Marvel ...... that this hasn't happened yet," shared Liefeld. "They are the reason why it doesn't happen. Whatever conundrum or inconvenience fit your master plan, just commission it. Okay, have it commissioned.
There is no denying that in the last decade, Deadpool is very different from anything that Marvel has produced. The studio has built a family-friendly brand while Deadpool by Reynolds paved the way for R-rated superhero movies.
If Marvel doesn't know how to add Deadpool without abandoning the raunchy side of the character, Liefeld believes the studio should give creative control to Reynolds. This would probably keep Deadpool out of the MCU but much sooner would give fans a third movie.
The first Deadpool movie was made on a $58 million dollar budget. The movie went to the box office earning $782 million. Deadpool 2 had a $110 million bigger budget and earned $785 million a little more than the original.
Does Marvel have plans for ‘Deadpool 3’?
Last year Disney purchased Fox for $71 billion, purchasing the rights to Deadpool and X-Men. Fox was working on several projects at the time of the buyout, including an X-Force spin-off and a couple of X-Men related movies, such as Gambit (Channing Tatum) and Multiple Man (James Franco).
Marvel did not reveal what happened to these projects after the merger, but Liefeld, who also created X-Force, is questioning their future. He might be right in considering how we are now a couple of years out before Deadpool 3.
"I don't even know. This is what people do not want to hear, but I am a realist thank God. I feel like Deadpool, they've been sailing the movies, "he stated.
Liefeld added he is "not really that crazy" about the MCU plan for the studio. He then criticized Feige for allowing Captain America to walk away from Chris Evans and killing Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) in Avengers: Endgame.
He also took a shot at the fact that, despite having big plans for the character, Marvel almost lost Tom Holland's Spider-Man to Sony last year. He concluded he was not excited about Deadpool 3 because it might be another four years before that movie hits theaters.
Marvel has yet to respond to comments from Liefeld regarding the future of Deadpool in the MCU.
