For the record there is pretty much a zero chance of this ever happening but it’s still fun to think or talk about. Superheroes and crossovers are the the bread and butter of the blockbuster genre now and people have been asking if we were ever going to see the Avengers and the X-Men together since the credits rolled on Avengers in 2012. The deal between Sony and Marvel has just given people more hope. One of the people involved with the X-Men universe has weighed in. In an interview with Total Film Ryan Reynolds talks about the crossover of his dreams.
“That sounds like a great idea but a very expensive idea. Can you imagine the shit-talking contest with Iron Man? Oh, that would be great. But it would have to be rated R to completely unharness everybody. Unbridle the merriment and watch them go…”
An expensive idea is an understatement but even if Disney and Fox could agree to something there is no way it would be rated R. Fans of the various team-ups will have to stick to the comics for now. Disney has no use for making a R-rated comic book movie because they keep that stuff over on Netflix even if it would be fun to see Wade Wilson and Tony Stark snark at each other for 90 minutes.
Deadpool 2, directed by David Leitch, stars Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, T.J. Miller, Josh Brolin, Brianna Hildebrand, and Zazie Beetz. It will be released on June 1st, 2018.
