Deadpool Producer Emma Watts Leaves the Franchise in Favor of Kevin Feige


In the last hours, Ryan Reynolds has confirmed the development of Deadpool 3 by Marvel Studios, obviously produced by the forward-looking and esteemed Kevin Feige, a reason that has forced – let’s say – the historic producer of the franchise, Emma Watts, to abandon the film project in favor of the colleague.

It is Variety to report the indiscretion that has been circulating in the last few hours among professionals, a decidedly reliable source. Watts was previously president of a production at 20th Century Fox, the same one that has strongly Deadpool l and Deadpool 2 branded with a strong Rated R. Also Watts also oversaw the success of the trilogy, The Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and of the X-Men, especially of Logan, always forbidden to minors at home and with an excellent collection.

The producer instead remains on board the action-comedy Free Guy directed by Shawn Levy and always starring Ryan Reynolds, Just like all sequels Avatar from James Cameron, the West Side Story by Steven Spielberg and The Last Duel of Ridley Scott. Let’s say that he lost only a small part, in short. However, it is difficult to oppose, given the extra-power of Feige and his incredible work with Marvel brand products.

Deadpool 3 doesn’t have a release date yet.
