One of the biggest questions about the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s future post Avengers: Endgame is how Kevin Feige is going to bring in characters from Fox’s collection of Marvel characters. Marvel Studios now controls pretty much all of the Marvel characters’ film and television rights.
While the X-Men have yet to be hinted at within upcoming movies or even cameo appearances in other character sequels, one character is already rumored to be making his MCU debut albeit not in a movie solely owned by Marvel Studios. Yes, the merc with the mouth, aka Deadpool, has been rumored to make his MCU debut in the apparent upcoming Spider-Man 3 finally appearing alongside his recurring comic-book foil Spider-Man.
However, if Feige doesn’t want to share one of Fox’s most lucrative franchises, then he has two other options available to him for introducing Ryan Reynold’s Deadpool to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The first option is to go ahead with Deadpool 3 and complete the franchise in the same mindset as the first two movies were intended. The other option is to put Deadpool in a Disney+ series thus forcing him to soften the edges of the arguably outlandish character that the Disney brand is not famous for having.
Ryan Reynolds has all but been officially confirmed to return as Wade Wilson, aka Deadpool, and Feige is hoping to add the character’s lucrative box office feather to his already brimming cap. Deadpool has become infamous for appearing alongside Peter Parker in the comics and has been depicted as in a somewhat flirtatious relationship with the web-slinger.
While the Deadpool movies aren’t officially canon with the X-Men movies released by Fox, there was a direct tie-in with Deadpool 2, as well as running commentary and fourth wall jokes with both movies. However, because of the character that Deadpool is, it stands to reason that he and his movies can be their own entity and exist outside of the X-Men movies, and easily be included within the world of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
However, with X-Men: Dark Phoenix being the last X-Universe movie released by 20th Century Fox, the X-Men characters are readying themselves for an MCU reboot as Feige decides what he is going to do with everyone’s favorite Mutants.
Deadpool, Deadpool 2 and the PG-13 Once Upon a Deadpool are currently all available of DVD, Digital and Blu-ray.
