‘Deadpool’ star Ryan Reynolds has been trolling Marvel even before
Fans of the actor are obviously familiar with his social media humor, and his latest Instagram update is absolutely hilarious:
The reference to the MCU couldn’t be more clear, and Reynolds and Marvel must have discussed Wade Wilson during the meeting rather than that “Anthony Stark” character, who perished after a terrible confrontation between Earth’s mightiest heroes and alien armies.
As easy it is to speculate on Reynold’s presence at Marvel, there’s no official announcement from Kevin Feige concerning the Merc with a Mouth, so we’re going to have to wait a while for a Deadpool 3 release date.
We still have some good news for Deadpool fans, though. Writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who made the Zombieland films as well as the Deadpool flicks, indicated to Entertainment Weekly that Deadpool is definitely coming to the MCU. It’s still unclear when it’ll all happen, but the writers suggested Deadpool 3 will also get to keep its R-rating, while any addition to other MCU films would probably feature a tamer Wade Wilson. Here’s what Wernick had to say:
We’re always in touch with Ryan. We’ve got several projects with him in addition to the Deadpool universe. I think the party line and truth is we’re all still figuring it out. Marvel has promised to continue to let us play in the R-rated Deadpool universe, and the hope is that they will also let us veer into the MCU a little bit as well and play in that sandbox. Our feeling and Ryan’s feeling is that it’s got to be the right idea, it’s got to be great… I think once we collectively agree what idea that great idea is we’ll be off to the races. Ryan’s super-busy, we’ve got a lot of projects lined up, but we wake up thinking about Deadpool, and we go to sleep thinking about Deadpool.
The two writers also worked with Reynolds on an upcoming Netflix film that’s set to debut in early December, Michael Bay’s 6 Underground action flick.
Finally, the creator of Deadpool Rob Liefeld is apparently very aware of Reynold’s meeting at Marvel, having reposted the star’s Instagram with some trolling of his own:
The feet reference is a joke that comic fans will get, as it’s related to Liefeld’s way of drawing feet in his works.
In other words, everyone involved with the first two Deadpool films seems to be ready for more Deadpool fun now that the character belongs to Marvel. But we’ll have to wait a while for the official Deadpool 3 announcement — unless someone leaks it first, of course.
