It’s defintely the era of superhero crossovers with the likes of ‘Avengers‘ and the recently released ‘Batman v Superman‘ blockbuster gracing cinema screens around the world – so it makes sense that another potential crossover would surface.
This one however would be particularly exciting were it to actually come off… I’m speaking of course of a Deadpool / Spider-Man extravaganza.
We all the know the success of Deadpool this year – becoming the highest grossing R-rated movie of all time, and smashing several records during it’s illustrious reign at the worldwide box office. So it’s most surprising that it’s star, and general, Ryan Reynolds, would want to capitalise on the brands colossal appeal…
…and who best to feed off of Deadpool’s foul-mouthed banter than New York’s very own web-slinger, Spider-Man.
Now that Deadpool 2 is officially in development (no surpise there), a possible crossover between the characters could very well happen, as Producer Simon Kinberg is hoping.
“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 ’cause we’d would love to see it.”
Considering it took Ryan Reynolds almost 8 years to get his vision for Deadpool realised by studio execs, if anyone can get this epic crossover to happen, Reynolds can. Stay tuned for more info.
