DEADPOOL 2 Director Reveals How It Ties To The X-MEN Movies And Disney/Fox Deal Ramifications

Deadpool 2 director David Leitch has shed some light on how the sequel will link up to the wider X-Men Universe and weighs in on the impact the Disney/Fox deal could have on the Merc with the Mouth...

Deadpool 2 could very well be the final Deadpool movie set in Fox's X-Men Universe as Disney's acquisition of the studio looks set to conclude by next summer. That means the studio will never get chance to make the likes of X-Force and Deadpool 3 but there is still a chance the Merc with the Mouth will live on in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. So, what does director David Leitch make of this deal? 
 
"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. 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."

There's no denying that seeing characters like Captain America and Spider-Man interact with Deadpool will be a lot of fun but we have no idea whether or not Kevin Feige intends on rebooting the hero. 

After all, randomly throwing him into the mix could be hard to pull off without first laying the groundwork for how mutants are going to factor into the MCU. As for how Wade Wilson fits into the X-Men Universe, the director went on to say that we should expect more references to that in the sequel.

"I think because we needed to expand the world, in terms of where we were going to be, obviously on the day and date, but also because Deadpool's got to go somewhere," Leitch said. "So yeah, he's part of the X-Men lore. We did find some natural tie-ins, and I think it's really going to be fun."
