… but nobody knows WHEN though
Avengers 4 directors Joe and Anthony Russo have confirmed that X-Men and Deadpool will definitely arrive in the MCU…
… and it’s all thanks to that Disney-Fox deal.
“I’m sure of it,” Joe Russo said during Business Insider Ignition (via Deadline). “The acquisition of Fox is showing us where the future of the business is going to go.”
Joe went on to say that Disney CEO Bob Iger has had a “historic” run, adding: “We haven’t talked to him about when he is going to do it.”
In September, Iger addressed whether Marvel is going absorb the X-Men franchise, and if Kevin Feige will oversee everything.
“I think it only makes sense,” he told reporters. “I want to be careful here because of what’s been communicated to the Fox folks, but I think they know. It only makes sense for Marvel to be supervised by one entity. There shouldn’t be two Marvels.”
When asked if that meant Deadpool could one day become an Avenger, Iger said: “Kevin’s got a lot of ideas. I’m not suggesting that’s one of them. But who knows?”
Meanwhile, the Deadpool 2 clean cut – officially titled Once Upon A Deadpool – is arriving in cinemas next week.
The original cut of Deadpool 2 is available now on digital download, DVD and Blu-ray. Once Upon A Deadpool is set to hit cinemas in the US on December 12 and in the UK on December 11.
