Now that Disney owns the rights to X-Men, there have been concerns as to whether the Mouse House will keep Deadpool as the R-rated raunchy humor film that fans favor so much. While discussing the Disney+ streaming service and the Fox merger, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige assures that Deadpool will not change.
“When we were purchased, Bob said to us, ‘if it’s not broke, don’t fix it,’” said Feige in an interview with Variety. “There’s no question that Deadpool is working, so why would we change it?”
Although this is assuring news, Deadpool’s future remains a mystery as to how the franchise will coexist with the MCU. As the Avengers: Endgame is the culmination of a 23-film sage, Marvel is gearing up to introduce new TV series that will intersect with the movies in a very big way. There are still concerns as to where would Deadpool fit in.
It is possible that Deadpool will not be included in the MCU anytime soon, but this could probably be for the best.
