"Deadpool 3" Will Retain Its R-Ratedness Despite Disney Takeover


Disney has emphasized the development of its own original streaming service as it looks to compete with industry giant Netflix and stave off the effects of the cord-cutting trend that has weighed on its bottom line. During a call with investors, Disney Chairman/CEO re-itterated that Disney plans to do R-rated Marvel movies - following the "popularity" of the Deadpool franchise, the Hollywood trade reports. The revelation came from an earnings call with investors which took place recently.

However, Iger's comments do offer fans anxious about Deadpool's fate in the new Disney-Marvel some major relief. Per The Verge, Disney CEO Bob Iger told investors that Disney wants to move its licensed content to Disney+ and forgo its licensing revenue, which now totals $140 million.

Even then, fans have to wonder how much they could add around Foles after paying him as the Jags' offense has multiple holes. Knowing that they were going to go back to Wentz when he was healthy, the Eagles considered trading away Foles in 2018.

Men's Brain Diminish Faster Than Women's With Growing Age, Says New Study
But there was some variation across individuals with a typical deviation of roughly 5.4 years, varying from -18 to +16 years. They found out that the algorithm yielded brain ages an average of 3.8 years younger than the women's chronological ages.

Bob Iger also hinted that the R-rated Deadpool films (and whatever else) might have a different brand to separate it from Disney products and the regular Marvel products. Except it will have exclusive countless blockbusters from the Marvel, Lucasfilm, Jim Henson, Pixar, National Geographic and Fox catalogs - something that Netflix can't touch. That's because Disney isn't expected to debut the service until the end of the year. Even though many of Disney's games that have been published in the past reached vast numbers in terms of sales, past titles like the aforementioned Disney Infinity and others like Epic Mickey were always rather well-received critically.

"We're good at making movies and television shows and theme parks and cruise ships and the like, we've just never managed to demonstrate much skill on the publishing side of games", CEO Bob Iger said when asked about Disney potentially dipping into video games once more.
