There are a lot of lingering questions about how exactly Deadpool 3 will fit into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including ones about the R-rating and whether or not it will maintain established canon, but we unfortunately don’t have any answers at the present moment. Lizzie Molyneux-Logelin and Wendy Molyneux, filmmakers best known for their work on Bob’s Burgers and The Great North, have come aboard to write the script, but we still don’t know when the movie will actually go into production.
Jon Watts, who directed both Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home, is back in the director’s chair for Spider-Man: No Way Home, and Tom Holland and Zendaya are confirmed to return as Peter Parker a.k.a. Spider-Man and MJ, respectively. Currently there are no plot details available, but the film is expected to pick up where the last one ended, featuring the titular hero trying to survive in a world where everyone knows his secret identity and blames him for a terrorist attack in London. Additionally, it looks like the film will be having a bit of fun with the multiverse and feature characters from the pre-MCU Spider-Man movies, such as Jamie Foxx’s Electro from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock from Spider-Man 2.
As they have since pretty much the beginning, Marvel’s plans moving forward will include mixing things up between sequels and original projects. After all, while the latter allow things to constantly feel fresh and new, the former lets us see a lot more of the characters we’ve previously fallen in love with. This most definitely extends to Doctor Strange, as Marvel President Kevin Feige confirmed to CinemaBlend in summer 2018 that a Doctor Strange 2 was in development, and now we know that project is taking form as Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness.
