Reynolds says Deadpool in the MCU is “a win for everyone involved”

May 2nd, 2020 by Marc Comments

Ryan Reynolds is talking about Deadpool coming into the MCU (here), so he has our attention…

Despite – or perhaps because of – the world being in lockdown (although, thankfully, it is starting to relax) we’re all still yearning to know what’s happening in our favourite franchises and Deadpool joining the MCU is still one of the things that has me – and many other fans – giddy.

In a recent interview, the star was slightly tight-lipped on the topic, but still added some new stuff: “It’s just all so new with it being over at Marvel now, and, you know, figuring out the ins and outs as much as I can, from where I sit. We’ll see.”

“I don’t feel like an insider at all. I think once I’m more intimate with it – if we get to make a Deadpool 3… if or when we get to make a Deadpool 3, I’ll probably have a better perspective on that. But I’m a huge fan of Marvel, and how they make movies. So when Disney bought Fox, I only saw that as a good thing.

“Deadpool hopefully being allowed to play in that sandbox, I think is just a win for everyone involved. But we’ll certainly see.” 

While there’s no doubt that the current situation is causing everything to slow down on the news front, it’s great to know that it’s still on the cards to bring Reynolds’ take on the character into the MCU – personally, I still think Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness is a way to bring this all together (and yes,I still think we could see Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart appear even briefly (here)) and I’m as excited as all hell for it.

How excited are you all to see Deadpool drop into the MCU? Let me know, folks…

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….
