Ok, so a LOT of people are excited that Deadpool is FINALLY getting his own movie. But a good question is whether it’ll be a standalone title, or it’ll tie into one of the two Marvel movie universes.
Well we have that answer. As Deadpool is being made by Twentieth Century Fox, who made the X-Men movies, it wouldn’t have been out of the question to think Deadpool could crossover with the X-Men titles. Simon Kinberg however, has made it very clear it IS a part of the universe!
“There’s definitely a sort of overall plan that we’ve all been talking about for the X-Men universe now,” Kinberg explained to Comicbook.com, “and Deadpool obviously fits into that. So yeah, I guess I would say it’s part of certainly an overall timeline and thought process that goes into these films, some of which is inspired by the comics and some which is inspired by seeing what Marvel’s done with telling a larger tapestry and linking all those movies together, even as they stand independently as well. The same kind of thought is going to go into these X-Men movies at Fox.”
So there you go! There IS a plan here! We’ll have to see how it all unfolds when Deadpool releases on Feburary 12, 2016
