Deadpool writers waiting for right time to drop him into the MCU as Ryan Reynolds teases Marvel meeting

October 15th, 2019 by Marc Comments

It’s weird but out of all the X-Men movie characters that Fox created for the big screen the one everyone wants in the MCU – well, after Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine – is the one who is probably least suited to it… Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool.

And it looks like, as we suspected, Deadpool is making the jump, meaning he’s the only X-Men star to service the Fox – Disney purge.

“We’re just waiting for the word from on high,” writers, Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese have said, adding that there’s currently no solid plans for Deadpool 3.

“There’s a lot to be sorted out, like how Deadpool fits into the Marvel Universe with the other characters and into the release schedule of the MCU. Then it’s, do the X-Men get in there at some point? Fantastic Four? There’s a lot to be sorted out and I think we’re all getting a much needed rest from Deadpool – Ryan and us and everybody.”

But don’t worry, this isn’t just spin: “The promise is that there will be more Deadpool,” added Reese.

“He will live in the R-rated universe that we’ve created, and hopefully we’ll be allowed to play a little bit in the MCU sandbox as well and incorporate him into that. We’ve just got to land on the right idea and once we do, I think we’ll be off to the races. We wake up thinking about Deadpool and we go to sleep thinking about Deadpool, so there will be another Deadpool and we just have to make it the right way.”

Along with this, star Ryan Reynolds dropped the following tease that he has met with Marvel… about what though?

And, on top of all this, it seems that the writers are actually more excited for the potential Deadpool has in the bigger world of the MCU than he did in Fox’s X-Men world: “The long story short is the Marvel Universe is a very rich, deep universe,” added Wernick.

“With Deadpool, we were confined a little bit with certain villains, certain possible partners, but in the MCU it’s going to blow up and it’s just a question about finding the perfect foils.”

Can you imagine Deadpool finally meeting Spider-man? Or the Guardians of the Galaxy? I can live with Deadpool keeping the x-rated standalone and then bringing his self-aware meta-humour to the MCU for the crossovers.

And, for the record, I don’t feel the character will be compromised at all by toning down the violence or language. If you’ve seen Once Upon A Deadpool, you’ll know I’m right.

Thoughts? Let me have them…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
