Deadpool's writers on when to expect a full-blown X-Men/Deadpool crossover

02.26.2016

While DEADPOOL is set within Fox's X-MEN universe, the filmmakers couldn't exactly start playing with X-MEN franchise big boys like Wolverine and Professor X. Now that DEADPOOL has exploded in popularity and made Fox mucho dinero in just two weeks, I'd imagine that the studio will be much more likely to share their top-tier characters with their new belle of the ball. However, a full-blown crossover between DEADPOOL and X-MEN is something which screenwriters Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese hope to avoid, at least in the near future. The pair spoke with The Playlist recently where Reese revealed his hope to get a few more DEADPOOL sequels out there before launching into a full crossover.

If you look at the ‘Iron Man’ model they had two 'Iron Man' [movies] before they had an ‘Avengers,’ and if left up to us, I think that would be a very prudent path. The second issue at hand is the 'X-Men' universe timeline. 'The X-Men' series is currently set in the 1980s, 'Deadpool,' is set three decades later in our present day.

I can't imagine that something so insignificant as time could keep Deadpool from popping up in an X-MEN film before the timelines catch up, but Paul Wernick also believes that the timelines need to sync up before that event takes place.

It’s a timeline that will eventually catch up I would imagine, but ['X-Men' producer] Simon [Kingberg’s] more the keeper of that universe and maybe we’ll see more X-Men playing in Deadpool’s sandbox and probably Deadpool playing in their sandbox at some point.

Wernick went on the say that he's very pleased that DEADPOOL has become its own franchise independent of the X-MEN, as it "gives the studio two franchises in one, but I think it is its own franchise, and you’ll see synergy between those two properties, but they’re two very distinct brands." Much like Simon Kinberg is the "keeper of the X-MEN franchise", Wernick says that Reese and himself will have a hand in anything Deadpool is involved in, as it's "a universe that Ryan [Reynolds] and us are very close to and very protective of, so if it’s Deadpool related, I think you’ll see some of our fingerprints on that." The sequel to DEADPOOL, which Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese are currently working on, will feature the character of Cable (sound off on who you think should play the character is the latest installment of Cast This!) and hopefully make things bigger, bloodier, and more obscene.

Which X-Men would you like to see Deadpool rub shoulders with in future films?

The way I see it...

So if the studios reaallllyy feel the need to throw Deadpool in the X-men's timeline I think it would be best as a mere cameo at first and since its already been confirmed that Cable will finally be introduced in the sequel there's honestly no reason that Cable and Deadpool couldn't time travel back to the timeline that the X-men are currently in to lend a hand since Cable is a time traveler anyways. Although I completely agree with the majority of the comments here that it is not needed to

Although I completely agree with the majority of the comments here that it is not needed to cross these character's over with the X-men until further establishing Deadpool and Cable's character's a bit further and introducing them into the X-men universe. On the other hand, with Deadpool being it's own "franchise within a franchise" the studio now has the opportunity to create a more R rated universe with X-Force since they have already established that with the Deadpool movie and make the new mutants within the X-Force universe a more gritty hardcore crew. Either way its amazing to be a comic book fan right now!! And on that note I'll just end with saying I love me some Deadpool and I'm very happy for his success!!!!!

there's absolutely no need to have Deadpool in Simon Kingberg's X-Men universe. unless maybe as a cameo. no. not even a cameo. they have enough X-Men characters that they still have to get right.

Deadpool's universe, on the other hand, can do whatever it wants. they can get Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. they can get Hugh Jackman to play Professor X. it doesn't matter. it's the one franchise that can do stuff like that.


i'd like to see every actor rumored to replace Hugh Jackman in the

i'd like to see every actor rumored to replace Hugh Jackman in the movie at the same time as the Wolverines.

The Deadpool hype is gonna fade soon.....

Its just a fluke Deadpool made so much money.
It was an "ok" movie that just happen to be released when nothing else was coming out.
Audiences can only take Ryan Reynolds (and Deadpool) in small doses.
I am sure by Deadpool 3 the well is gonna dry up.

Are you really gonna take someone with the name Ghostbusters206WIN seriously?
I really enjoyed Deadpool, a lot of people did. Get over it.


(p.s. I actually hope GB2016 doesn't suck)

I think the two franchises should take their time in wanting to do a crossover with one another. They're both doing fine financially and critically and because of that they should just wait and not force each other's characters and universes into one another's until it makes sense story wise.

And the only X-Men I want to see in a future Deadpool film is Wolverine. I think Jackman would be a fool to not want to come back as Wolverine as least one more time after how well the first Deadpool
