Deadpool Expected To Be Only Fox Marvel Franchise To Survive Disney Merger

What world are we living in that the most anticipated and successful franchise of the numerous X-Men and Fantastic Four characters is Deadpool? Somehow, over the course of the past 20 years, Fox has managed to drive interest away from their bread and butter franchise and toward the little Merc that could. Now, the Ryan Reynolds-starring series seems to be the only one fans really want to see.

And it sounds like Disney knows that. In a new report from THR, it is stated that Deadpool is the only character expected to survive Disney’s acquisition of Fox. This coming June comes the release of Dark Phoenix, and it is expected to be the last film of the current iteration of that franchise before it gets put on ice (until it’s inevitably integrated into the MCU).

And then there’s The New Mutants. This was a horror film by Josh Boone that was expected to hit last year, but has been delayed to August 2 of this year. It’s a film that is reportedly full of troubles that led to extensive reshoots — which is unfortunate because I thought it looked pretty unique and fun. But will it even hit theaters this year? The outlet is reporting that Disney execs will decide its fate after watching it. If nothing else, a streaming release for it is a possibility.

So while it’s far from a sure thing, the only one set to survive this transition of the Merc with the Mouth, and my fingers are crossed that the X-Force movie will ultimately happened. But, as Disney has said on more than one occasion, and R-rated Deadpool is possible under this leadership, so keep up the hope!
