Deadpool’s Presence In The MCU Confirmed by Writers
With Disney now holding the rights to all the Marvel characters, fans are excited to see the upcoming cast reveals of Fantastic Four and X-Men. Fear not for Deadpool fans, however, since Ryan Reynolds will most likely reprise his role as Wade Wilson thanks to Disney.
Confirmation Of Deadpool’s Involvement
Deadpool’s screenwriters have revealed that they are more than prepared to introduce Deadpool to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The prospect of Deadpool interacting with other characters in the MCU is simply exciting. Rhett Reese recently announced Deadpool’s involvement, stating:
Rhett Reese On Introducing Deadpool
“We definitely we want to play in the sandbox. One of the great things about the MCU is how rich and broad it is. For instance, just think about the world of villains, how great the world of villains are. We’re never able to use a lot of those villains because they were on the MCU. Well, now we can. So, right away, we’re definitely excited about getting the shot to do that. I think Ryan is too. I think the MCU people are too, just the idea of throwing Deadpool into the mix is exciting to them.”
Getting Into The MCU
One thing that will definitely be missed once Deadpool becomes an official part of the MCU is the sheer independence he had as a solo character. His lack of affiliation towards the other X-Men was able to highlight several aspects of his own journey. However, all the same, it makes it much easier to introduce him into the MCU without bringing in any other major characters along.
