Deadpool 2 writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick share what Marvel Cinematic Universe characters they’d like to see interact with Deadpool.
With the Disney acquisition of 21st Century Fox due to begin its processes next year, fans have been quick to imagine a version of the Marvel Cinematic Universe including the Marvel Comics characters whose film rights were owned by Fox. The idea of a crossover between the X-Men and the Avengers has fans excited, and co-writer Reese was quick to agree; his preferred character for a Deadpool crossover would be Captain America himself:
“I mean I sure wish Chris Evans would stay in the role a little bit longer because I’d love to see Deadpool and Captain America going at it … Just because he’s so honorable and so serious and a great character and Deadpool’s pretty much the opposite and that could be fun. We’re always looking for good foils for Deadpool.”
Co-writer Wernick agreed, but had someone else on the forefront in his dream crossover:
“Iron Man, too … I mean imagine Tony Stark and Wade Wilson back and forth, you’d literally, there wouldn’t be a moment to do anything else but to jabber back and forth and my God, it would be exhausting.”
Regardless of however the Fox acquisition may end — Comcast has presented a huge cash bid for the media conglomerate in an effort to outbid Disney — the Marvel character rights would return to Disney regardless, as the deals issued out were mere leases. Within these lease contracts are contingencies such as that all Marvel rights leased by a company would return to the parent company in the event of a sale, and even include expiration dates for the use of these characters, explaining the rushed production for Fox’s failed 2015 Fantastic Four reboot. This means, to the joy of fans around the world, that there could potentially be an MCU-Deadpool crossover within the next five years at the earliest.

Every ‘Star Wars’ Movie Ranked From Worst To Best
Star Wars was released in 1977 and has become one of the biggest film franchises in the history of cinema. Han Solo. Luke Skywalker. Princess Leia. Darth Vader. These characters have become synonymous with pop culture around the world.
Star Wars has transcended generations but when Revenge of the Sith was released in 2005, many fans assumed that this galaxy far far away had come to a close and we wouldn’t be seeing any new films. It wasn’t until 2012 that everything changed. On October 30, 2012, Disney announced a deal to purchase Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion. Since that purchase, Disney has brought Star Wars back to the main folds of pop culture with The Force Awakens and even Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
