The film rights for the Marvel Universe are complicated, with Deadpool falling outside the Marvel Cinematic Universe because his cinematic rights are owned by Fox, who also makes the X-Men movies. Therefore, it’s safe to say that fans shouldn’t expect the character to cross paths with any of the Avengers, show up in court for Daredevil, or make witty jokes with Spider-Man. Although, if there was ever one of those things that fans would want from Mister Pool, it’d be for him to crack jokes with Spidey.
According to The Independent, this is something Deadpool Director Tim Miller wants, as well.
“With all of the deals that have recently started happening, we asked if they could get visitation rights to Sony’s friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man,” Simon Kinberg said at an event promoting Deadpool’s home release.
“I would love to see it. Both of us are close with [Marvel’s] Kevin [Feige], we respect and love Kevin. If it were even remotely possible, we will find a way because we would love to see it.”
A recent deal between Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures has brought Spider-Man back to the MCU. And we reported earlier this week that Marvel Studios will be the creative producers on Spider-Man: Homecoming for Sony, who’ll serve as the distributor. Do you think Fox and Marvel should strike up some sort of deal that’ll allow Spidey and Deadpool to appear on screen together? Sound off in the comments below!
