The development of the upcoming Marvel film Deadpool 3 has definitely been an interesting one to follow. The project switched studios once Disney purchased Fox, and although they’ve insisted the project will remain R-rated like its predecessors, fans are still curious. After all, there are plenty of routes for both Deadpool 3 and the franchise as a whole to follow. The latest rumor, however, promises some very exciting updates. As it turns out, actor Jim Carrey is reportedly in talks to join the cast of Deadpool 3.
According to Insider’s Daniel Richtman, via Patreon, actor Jim Carrey wants to join the cast of Deadpool 3,. This would put him alongside the likes of Ryan Reynolds who plays the titular character. This possibility should definitely get fans excited, as seeing the two comedy legends on screen together would be incredible. Unfortunately, there is a bit of a catch with the report. Apparently Jim Carrey has actually discussed doing several different projects, so there’s a chance he might end up somewhere else within the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
It would also be tricky to see him doing the project, considering his controversial stance against violence after he’d appeared in Kick-Ass 2. The Deadpool series is very violent, a reason why they’ve acquired R-ratings. So if this third film follows suit – it might be hard to see Jim Carrey join the cast after all. So in that sense, it does seem more likely that he’ll end up joining a different Marvel Cinematic Universe film instead.
So although Jim Carrey might not actually join the cast of Deadpool 3, which would no doubt be a fun experience, it seems there’s a chance he simply might not. That being said, if he’s discussing multiple projects with the studio, then it’s easy to see Jim Carrey joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe somewhere else. Personally, I think he’d also fit in right at home with something like the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise. Jim Carrey might not collide with Ryan Reynolds on such a project, but he’ll definitely be in good hands with Marvel’s plenty of other great cast members.
As such, fans should stay tuned to ScreenGeek for any updates on Deadpool 3 and the potential involvement of Jim Carrey in the MCU as we have them.
