Deadpool 2 just released its final trailer before its May 18th release. But that isn’t stopping Deadpool 2 director David Leitch from looking into the future. Leitch revealed he wants to see Wade Wilson in a crossover with the one and only Steve Rogers aka Captain America.
In an interview with Fandango, David Leitch was asked about the future of the Merc with a Mouth since it looks like Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox is going through. He gives an interesting answer and teases the epic crossover with Captain America:
“I think it’ll be exciting for fans. What I like about Deadpool is I think that the more you can put Deadpool in a box, the more he wants to push outside of it. Pairing him with people that you think would confine him, it’s a challenge to be irreverent, and it’s a challenge to keep the same sort of subversive nature. I think there’s something interesting about that. I don’t know. Who would he pair with? Captain America, that’d be pretty funny. I don’t know. There are definitely some people. I mean, I’m a fan of that sort of whole Marvel universe. I think you could just throw a dart at a board and put Deadpool next to them, and it would be funny.”
Personally, I agree Deadpool could share the screen with just about any current Marvel Cinematic Universe characters and it would be a hell of a funny film. And it wouldn’t be too far off from what we’ve seen in the comic world either.
Here’s a taste of what we might expect.
However, the big question for a possible Deadpool and Captain America crossover is if Captain America will even survive the events of Avengers: Infinity War. It’s quite possible at least one or more of the Avengers will meet their end at the hands of Thanos. One of the most obvious people would be Steve Rogers given Chris Evans’ contract is up following Avengers 4.
While David Leitch pointed at Captain America, who would you want to see Deadpool crossover with?
