Director Talks Deadpool and Marvel Cinematic Crossover Ideas
In an interview with Fandango the director of Deadpool 2 David Leitch talked about the potential of Deadpool joining the MCU.
“I think it’ll be exciting for fans. What I like about Deadpool is I think that the more you can put Deadpool in a box, the more he wants to push outside of it,” Leitch said. “Pairing him with people that you think would confine him, it’s a challenge to be irreverent, and it’s a challenge to keep the same sort of subversive nature. I think there’s something interesting about that. I don’t know. Who would he pair with? Captain America, that’d be pretty funny. I don’t know. There are definitely some people. I mean, I’m a fan of that sort of whole Marvel universe. I think you could just throw a dart at a board and put Deadpool next to them, and it would be funny.”
We won’t see this crossover any time too soon with the Fox and Disney deal not likely to be finalized until late 2019. However, Leitch said there are going to be a few jokes about the MCU in Deadpool 2 that will be released May 18.
“I think we might have a couple comments in the film. That would be fun for people to hear those jokes. They’re definitely fresh and timely when they come up.”
Let us know what characters you would like to see Deadpool interact with in the MCU! I would say Star-Lord!
