Apart from Marvel’s own series of movies, Deadpool was one of the few non-Marvel owned movies that did exceptionally well, especially considering that it was an R-rated movie which meant that it limited the scope of its audience. Now that Disney owns Fox, and thus Deadpool, we’re sure many are wondering how Deadpool will fit into the MCU.
Will it continue the existing storyline? Will it be rebooted? There are definitely some complications, such as how Thanos and Cable were both played by Josh Brolin, something that was allowed given that they were of different cinematic universes. However, we could find out in the next few years because in a post on Instagram, actor Ryan Reynolds teased that Deadpool 3 could arrive in Phase 5 of the MCU.
Now, there is no way to confirm if this is true, but when asked about Deadpool 3 at Comic-Con 2019, Marvel’s Kevin Feige confirmed that Deadpool will be part of Marvel’s mutant series of movies which could possibly be part of Phase 5. The company did confirm a slew of movies for Phase 4, none of which are X-Men or Fantastic Four related, so it stands to reason that could arrive in the next phase.
How exactly they plan on tying it all together remains to be seen as it does seem like quite a massive undertaking, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
