What If… In Deadpool 3 Wade Wilson Kills all the Fox’s Marvel characters? The studio has a plan for foul-mouthed mercenary’s MCU debut
Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool is one Marvel character fans are dying to see on the big screen. The character came back to Marvel along with the X-Men after the Disney’s Fox acquisition.
Deadpool 3 has been on fans minds since the news broke. Reynolds had prodded 21 Century Fox to bring Deadpool to life. He along with his team successfully revived the mercenary with a foul mouth. Deadpool and its sequel garnered $783 million and $786 million respectively worldwide.
MCU’s Deadpool Production Grid
Last month Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld blamed Marvel Studios for delaying Deadpool 3. However, scoopers at the time believed that a Deadpool grid does exist in the studio. Since Liefeld is not associated with the movie he surely wasn’t in the know-how.
Now, Marvel Scooper Roger Wardell has broken Marvel’s plan for Deadpool 3. The scooper posted on microblogging site Twitter, “Deadpool kills Fox’s Marvel Universe was one of the ideas pitched by Reynolds back in 2019. Michael Bay in talks to direct the movie.”
Wardell in the past has provided detailed scoops about Avengers: Endgame like, fat Thor, Captain America wielding Mjolnir and more. However, many of his leaks are yet to come true like Marvel’s Wolverine and X-Men plans.
Deadpool Kills Fox’s Marvel Universe
Post the Disney Fox acquisition Reynolds’ had posted a picture on Instagram about Deadpool entering the MCU. However, the big question remained How?
The R rated character is everything that Marvel doesn’t stand for. He is a foul mouth, the blood spills when he kills. Well, it’s safe to say he isn’t exactly children friendly like his MCU counterparts.
As per Wardell’s leak, Ryan Reynolds pitched the idea in 2019 to the studio. Further, it says director Michael Bay is in talks with the studio to direct the movie. As bizarre as it may sound there’s an actual comic series where Deadpool loses his mind and kills many Marvel superheroes including the X-Men and Fantastic Four.

The 2012 comic Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe written by Cullen Bunn is particularly a dark one. Wade Wilson is brainwashed by Psycho-Man to do his dirty deeds. However, conversely, the voices inside Wade’s head turn dark and compel him to kill many superheroes across 4 bloody issues.
This is what precisely Reynolds’ suggestion seems like. Imagine Deadpool go on a rampage and kill all Fox’s X-Men! Further, there is another connection there Reynolds’ recently worked with director Michael Bay in Netflix’s 6 Underground. The Netflix original movie was a hit.
Viability of the Scoop
Deadpool killing the Fox Universe doesn’t sound like a farfetched idea given the tone of the character on screen, and the comic book series. Further, this does sounds like one of those crazy Ryan Reynolds’ idea. It would also be an easy explanation for the absence of Fox’s X-Men characters into the MCU.

But it looks like something difficult to pull production wise. To get the original characters back only to kill them off one last time for the sake of continuity doesn’t add up. It also does not help in recreating Deadpool brand for the MCU in any way.
So as exciting as it might sound the probability of this one coming true is less. Like, so many of Wardell’s scoops this one can be parked to come to fruition someday.
