Rumour: Disney has a few ideas on how to bring Deadpool into the MCU

2 min read

There was only one thing missing from Avengers: Endgame now that I think about it. A certain…buffoon, clad in red and able to spout insults that would make a sailor blush. A mercenary with a mouth, able to take on impossible levels of damage and still bounce back with a zinger of note while totally shirt-cocking his enemies.

I’m talking about Deadpool, that’s who I’m referring to in case you didn’t get the references that are the equivalent of a gigantic neon billboard that broadcasts a “MAKE DEADPOOL 3” message. Now that Disney happens to have complete control of all of 20th Century Fox’s assets, the future doesn’t just look like it’ll be stacked to the brim with the Fantastic Four and X-Men, but also primed for the debut of Ryan Reynolds as the titular crimson contract killer.

Here’s the question: How do you even introduce Deadpool into a universe where his greatest enemy is a harsher age rating? The previous two Deadpool films have been master classes in creative cursing, while also containing some of the gnarliest violence around. How do you take a character like that, and slap him with a more demographically friendly age rating that allows for younger fans to appreciate his unique slice of entertainment?

Disney has a few ideas.

According to sources speaking to MCU Cosmic (pinch of salt required of course), Disney has three options on its plate for making Wade Wilson a canon part of their universe. They can give him a solo film in the form of Deadpool 3 that probably mentions him falling through a wormhole or something, a limited series over on Disney+ and a guest role in Spider-Man 3: Even Further Away From Home.

Those are some tantalising choices, especially the last one which would see him trade quips with Spidey. Personally, I’d take a Deadpool 3 film that gives the merest mention to the new status quo and then gives him room to remark about how much Cable sounds like Thanos. That would be ideal especially if the film could squeeze in an age rating of higher than PG-13.

Marvel has one more film up its sleeves this year in the form of Spider-Man: Far From Home, after which they’ll be starting a new journey for their shared cinematic universe. Hopefully, Deadpool becomes a big part of it.

  1. Deadpool is perfect by himself. Why doesn’t Disney rather create a shared Deadpool universe where all the other Marvel characters have to mould themselves into his world, rather than him trying to mould himself into their world!!!

    Don’t. He doesn’t need to be shoehorned into the other franchises.

    If Deadpool joins the MCU, that’s all well and dandy… but if the Marvel cast join the Deadpool Cinematic Universe, we can joke about a DPCU and that seems way more fun, no?

    There is a certain logic as to why this makes sense.

    Robert Downey Jr carried most of the MCU with his character. With him gone, they need someone else to fill the personality void.

    Give Deadpool a family and he would have an in-character reason as to be a more PG-13 version of himself.

    I feel like typing a rage-filled something about Disney fucking up a brand but what good would it do? Already have two great Deadpool movies which will have to do.

    You forgot the missing Wolverine…

    But they could keep Deadpool movies as they are, and during crossovers you can have him start with a PG-13 curse word and then Spidey asks him to not swear so much and as he tries again Spidey webs his mouth 🙂 That way we get Deadpool as he should be and in crossovers!
