In case you haven’t noticed, superhero movies are kind of all the rage nowadays. We usually get more than a handful of them every year between Marvel Studios, Fox, Warner Bros., Sony, and the occasional oddball studio pulling in a lesser known hero.
This weekend will see the release of the big flagship release of the year, Avengers: Infinity War, and while many questions asked of the talent and filmmakers revolve around the film itself, there are some that revolve more around other films in the landscape. Speaking with CinemaBlend, Kevin Feige was asked about his thoughts on the Deadpool 2 trailer, which hit the web to fan acclaim last week.
“I thought it was very funny. I think that’s one of the great things about Deadpool, both in the comics and what Ryan has done with him in the movies, is you can break the fourth wall. They mention DC in the new trailer! They can get away with that, and it’s great. That was the only way to have done it, from the comics in the movies, and it’s great that they did. Versus earlier incarnations of Deadpool in earlier X-Men movies…”
If for some reason, you don’t know what earlier X-Men movies he’s talking about, consider yourself lucky. Also, I highly recommend checking out X-Men Origins: Wolverine…for no reason in particular.
It is interesting to look hear his comments, and I can’t help but wonder if his thoughts could affect how a property like Deadpool is handled should the Disney-Fox acquisition go through. Would they let that franchise continue without interruption, or would they feel the need to tamper with it in order to either retain Disney’s brand or incorporate it into the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a whole?
Only time will tell!
