Ryan Reynolds' Latest Disney Joke Will Make You Say, 'Oh, Deer'

Here’s to the deerly departed.

The internet rejoiced on Monday as news broke that Ryan Reynolds’ “Deadpool 3” will not only be in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but will also get an R rating.

“A very different type of character in the MCU, and Ryan is a force of nature, which is just awesome to see him bring that character to life,” Marvel boss Kevin Feige told Collider in an interview. “Deadpool 3” will be the first MCU movie to get the rating.

No one seems more excited than Reynolds, who shared the news on Instagram and immediately cracked a joke now that Deadpool is technically a Disney character.

“First order of business: Find the guy who killed Bambi’s mom. #Deadpool3,” he wrote.

“Bambi,” released in 1942, was, of course, responsible for one of the most traumatizing movie moments of your childhood when you realized his mom was shot by the ominous villain, “Man.” Sure, that’s almost 80 years ago, but somehow it still seems too soon to bring it up.

Though, if anyone could take down “Man,” it would be Deadpool, who even went after baby Hitler in a deleted scene from “Deadpool 2.”

Speaking of that baby Hitler moment, it remains to be seen how an R-rated “Deadpool” movie would work in Disney’s MCU. Reynolds joked about that himself, tweeting, “Full disclosure: I showed them Spiderman 1 & 2 and told them it was Deadpool 1 & 2.”

Fox also once infamously made Reynolds remove a Disney joke from the “Deadpool” sequel. Does this mean more joke censoring going forward?

Whatever the case, if the actor can really bring Bambi’s mom’s killer to justice, “Deadpool 3” should be a fawn time.
