Deadpool and Wolverine are coming for Kevin Feige’s neck! Dopinder actor Karan Soni recently teased that the film will be taking full advantage of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Ryan Reynolds is set to make his MCU debut in Deadpool and Wolverine. He’s even bringing his fellow Fox friends along from the ride, including Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine and Karan Soni’s Dopinder, in what seems to be a true celebration of Marvel movies up until this point.

Deadpool and Wolverine also isn’t wasting its shot at playing with all of Kevin Feige’s sacred toys. Ryan Reynolds seems set to truly shake up the MCU in the upcoming film. During a recent interview, Karan Soni teased that the film takes full advantage of the Marvel brand in an exciting collaboration between some of the greatest minds in superhero media.

“I can say that I think it’ll be really good, this movie, and from my little experience of my part of it, it’s definitely… Ryan’s taking full advantage of the MCU and playing with all the toys.” Soni told Collider. “It also feels like it’s coming at a perfect time for the MCU because it’s ready for a little bit of a shake-up, and he’s definitely shaking it up. And so I think like, this is great that it’s coming at this time, and they’re very willing to make fun of themselves, which is important.”

“And I got to meet Kevin Feige, and I was surprisingly starstruck.” He continued. “I was a little bit like, oh my gosh, it’s him. Which I was surprised that I was. But it’s very cool to see those minds together. You know, him, Kevin’s obviously completely changed the industry, and then Ryan who’s such a genius, like them combining their power, it’s pretty exciting.”

It’s good to hear that Kevin Feige and Marvel seem to be taking Ryan Reynolds irreverence in stride. So many recent MCU projects have been hampered by last-minute changes and chaotic productions, like Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania. Giving Reynolds and his team the breathing room to make something truly great with Deadpool and Wolverine may be the exact shake-up Karan Soni was talking about, ushering in a new age of creative freedom for the universe.

Ryan Reynolds Takes Aim At Kevin Feige

While fans expected Ryan Reynolds to throw in some MCU jabs during the production of Deadpool and Wolverine, it seems not even the Marvel executives are safe from his ridicule. Continuing with Collider, Karan Soni teased that Kevin Feige is the butt of a lot of jokes in the upcoming film, but that Feige himself had a good sense of humor about it.

“It was just like, this one was so different for me because we didn’t get a script or anything.” He explained. “It was very secretive. And so we were just in this, I got the scene like the day before or whatever, and we walked into the sound stage, and [Kevin Feige] just appeared next to Hugh Jackman, and I was just like, I don’t know what’s happening.”

“It was very crazy, but he was very sweet, very kind. He came up and said hi to all of us from the original movies and stuff, and he seemed excited himself by what was happening. And then Ryan is definitely like, you know, calling him out a lot at the moment. There’s a lot of Kevin jokes [in the movie]. You have to have a good sense of humor and he does. So that’s cool.”

It’s good to hear Kevin Feige didn’t have any objections to Ryan Reynolds making fun of him in Deadpool and Wolverine. The Marvel executive has never shied away from jokes at his expense, with the most infamous example being the finale of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.

Karan Soni’s comments suggest that Deadpool and Wolverine will truly be something special for the MCU. While the Marvel brand has been struggling in recent years, Ryan Reynolds seems set to pull Kevin Feige’s universe back into the good graces of the public.

Deadpool and Wolverine is currently expected to be released on July 26, 2024. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more content!
