How Will Deadpool Be Introduced in the MCU and Does It Involve Spider-Man?
Deadpool may get introduced to the MCU through a possible Spider-Man: Far From Home sequel. Marvel studios recently acquired the Merc with a Mouth in Disney’s huge Fox acquisition earlier this year and many Marvel fans are trying to figure out where he’s going to fit into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, if at all. The R-rated humor seems to be one of the biggest road blocks for including Deadpool in anything related to Disney and the MCU. With that being said, the studio reportedly has a few idea they are considering for the foul-mouthed character.
The first, and most interesting, idea for the Deadpool franchise is bringing him in with Peter Parker in a sequel to Spider-Man: Far from Home. If this rumor proves to be true, it would also confirm Tom Holland signed a three-movie deal with Marvel Studios, which is big on its own, even though it was already assumed. The Merc with a Mouth and Peter Parker have met up in the comics before, so there is a precedent already set. However, fans may be bummed to see Wade Wilson introduced in a PG-13 way, though he has been portrayed that way in the comics more than once. Avengers: Endgame seemed to push the envelope in terms of language, so we could see more of that in the near future.
The second rumored possibility continues in the PG-13 vein. According to sources, a Deadpool Disney+ series is being considered. It is believed the streaming platform will be a family-friendly affair, which would make Wade Wilson stick out like a sore thumb. Plus, fans might not be into this idea, though it would mean at least a good six hours of screen time with plenty of time to explain his MCU debut. Whatever the case may be, it’s interesting that the studio is even looking down this road for the franchise.
The third, and most plausible, rumor introduces the Merc with a Mouth in Deadpool 3. Disney CEO Bob Iger has already stated more than once that the studio will be making R-rated movies. This would allow the franchise to keep going like it has for the previous two installments, which has worked out pretty well for Fox. But, would this bring Wade Wilson into the MCU? While a lot of fans, and actors in the MCU, would love to see this, it might not work out that way when the time comes.
Regardless of anything, this is all very much a rumor for the time being, even though it comes from a generally reliable source. For now, the future of the Deadpool franchise is unknown. Hopefully, some more official information will be announced later this summer at either San Diego Comic Con or at D23 when Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige gives us some MCU Phase 4 updates. MCU Cosmic was the first to report on the Deadpool and MCU news.
