We all knew at some point, Marvel Studios was going to be bringing in Ryan Reynolds‘ Deadpool from the now-defunct Fox/X-Men films, but we didn’t know it could possibly be a soon as their next film!
Take this rumor with a grain of salt but Cosmic Book News is reporting:
Possible big spoilers follow for the Black Widow movie in addition to an Avengers 5 as rumors are offering that Ryan Reynolds and Deadpool will appear in those flicks.
According to TVO from Lords of the Long Box, who has been releasing all those Secret Wars and Phase 5 details, Deadpool will be a part of the Black Widow post-credit scene as well as whatever is Avengers 5.
It’s claimed the Black Widow movie will be introducing Fox Marvel characters and that the post-credit scene will feature Deadpool at a bar meeting Taskmaster.
It’s further claimed that Ryan Reynolds has signed a new deal with Disney and Marvel following the purchase of Fox Studios.
TVO points out the recent Dave Bautista Stuber movie was rated R and was released by Disney under the Fox banner, so Disney may be going the same route for the rated R Marvel films such as Deadpool. It’s known Disney CEO Bob Iger said they could still release the rated R Fox properties, just that they would need to separate the brand from classic Disney and Marvel.
Ryan Reynolds also recently teased that Deadpool will be a part of Phase 5(see image above), which is rumored to be announced at the upcoming D23 Expo.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige also recently said the new team of Avengers will be very different.
Now that’s a very interesting rumor and ingenious way to start sprinkling in some X-Men characters. Since Deadpool is the most popular X-Men film character currently, and the Reynolds is the only holdover from the Fox films this does make sense. What do you think?
