Deadpool Rumored To Make Marvel Cinematic Universe Debut In 2021
After Disney's huge merger with Fox, the first thing that sprung to mind, especially those of us of a Marvel persuasion, was surely: "When will we be seeing those new characters?"
Now that Marvel own the likes of the X-Men, Fantastic Four and Deadpool - it's pretty much guaranteed that they'll be joining their pals in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
And recent rumours would suggest that Marvel fans are in luck, because we have it on good authority that none other but Deadpool may be about to make his entrance in the MCU. It's looking like it's going to be sooner rather than later as well, with a report from We Got This Covered saying it could be in just two years time.
Given that the news outlet has previously given us inside information on Ms. Marvel becoming a TV show - and also that Ewan MGregor would be returning as Obi-Wan - we're already getting excited for his return.
It's said that the appearance will come in the form of a post-credits tease. No other details are currently available though, so we're still not exactly sure when it will happen and at the end of which film.
Although it must be said, it's unlikely he'll return in the same full force as last time, thanks to his, erm, colourful language. But even so, Disney would be daft to get rid of such a successful character; Ryan Reynold's portrayal of one of the best loved comic book characters ever went down an absolute treat with fans.
However, the star of the film Reynolds told Entertainment Weekly in the past that he wasn't too sure how things were going to pan out after the studio merger.
He said: "I really genuinely don't know a thing about it. I read that [CEO and chairman] Bob Iger felt that there's plenty of room in that universe to have a rated-R character like Deadpool.
"This is completely conjecture on my part, but I wouldn't imagine that Disney bought Fox to dismantle it or something like that. I think that Disney bought Fox so it could have that in its arsenal."
Only time will tell when it's going to take place, but one thing's for sure, it's definitely not the last we've seen of Deadpool.
