The bromance between our favorite wall crawler and the merc with a mouth is one of the most iconic in the comic book world. Spidey and Deadpool have had comic runs together, Deadpool has been seen on the Disney XD show Ultimate Spider-Man, and there is a slew of memes portraying their relationship on the internet. Recently, Marvel has been hyping their fans up, with the release of a few more Civil War trailers, a Doctor Strange trailer, and talks from Fox producers of interest in crossing over with the MCU. Now, from the Deadpool Blu-Ray release press day, comes news that some groundwork is actually being laid to make a Spider-Man and Deadpool crossover movie a reality. Tim Miller and Simon Kinberg “have been trying to build bridges” between the franchises, and here’s what Kinberg had to say on the matter:
“With all of the deals that have recently started happening, we asked if they could get visitation rights to Sony’s friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. I would love to see it. Both of us are close with Kevin [Feige], we respect and love Kevin. If it were even remotely possible, we will find a way ’cause we’d love to see it.”
With these two already reaching out to see this project come to fruition, we can only hope that the heads of Fox, as well as Marvel, are on board with the idea as well. The deal that Kinberg refers to is the one that Sony and Marvel made to allow Spidey to appear in the MCU, as well as other MCU characters to appear in Spider-Man solo films. So it is possible that Marvel could strike up a similar deal with Fox allowing this crossover to happen, and could eventually allow for larger crossovers to happen, maybe even an Avengers/X-Men crossover that both Kinberg and Miller have stated earlier in the week they’d like to see as well.
What do you guys think? Are you stoked to hear that some hard ball might be played to get this team-up into theaters? Or would you rather these universes remain separate? Be sure to let us know in the comments as well as on Twitter and Instagram!
