The Deadpool movies existed outside of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and 20th Century Fox’s X-Men series. However, that likely won’t be the case forever. Deadpool fans want to see their anti-hero enter the MCU, but they want to see it done correctly. Some Redditors shared how they want to see him introduced, which is actually comic-accurate.

Deadpool fans worried that their favorite anti-hero would turn PG-13 after Disney purchased Fox. However, The Playlist reported that they don’t have anything to worry about regarding the vulgar nature of the character. They interviewed Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who talked about it at length in relation to the MCU.

“It’s been nothing but, ‘How can we help you?’ ‘What from our universe would you like to use? How, how can we make your life easy?’ And we’re gonna let Deadpool be Deadpool,” the writers said. “We’re not … this is not going to be the Disney-fied ‘Deadpool.’ So they’re awesome, and now it’s up to us to come through and justify that faith.”

Reese responded to the question if MCU Deadpool will stay rated R: “Oh, absolutely. They’re not gonna mess with the tone. I mean, I’d never say never, I guess there’s an outside chance, but we’ve always been told it can be R-[rated], and we’re proceeding as if it’s R. We would like it to be R, we always have, so I don’t think that’ll change.”

‘Deadpool’ fans hope for a specific entrance to the MCU

Reddit discussed how MCU mastermind Kevin Fiege will use Deadpool 3 as the franchise’s first rated R installment. However, the writer acknowledged that it won’t be appropriate for the MCU’s younger fans. As a result, they will have to find some way of working around that for when the character joins the other heroes. The initial post suggested that Doctor Strange should send Deadpool to the Mirror Dimension, where he has his own “twisted” adventures until heroes need him.

However, the most upvoted comment suggests a very specific MCU introduction for Deadpool: “I’m hoping it’s in a non-Deadpool film when there’s a very important meeting going on, and all of a sudden you hear a slight tapping, then a knocking, and then finally pounding that the meeting has to be put on hold just so someone could answer the door, and look who it is … it’s Deadpool and he’s thanking everyone for letting him finally in.”

Deadpool commonly breaks the fourth wall and interacts directly with the audience. As a result, Fiege has a lot of options for how he can include the anti-hero in the MCU.

One Redditor mentioned that one specific way to introduce Deadpool into the MCU would actually be comic accurate.

“Someone once suggested that a cool way to have Deadpool interact with everyone, is to make him aware that he can’t swear,” the Redditor wrote. “Make it meta. Like, he keeps trying and can’t, like on The Good Place, or some kind of bleeping or loud noises happens, and he’s all ‘C’mon. I gotta curse!’ That could be funny.”

Another writer responded to that comment that it’s actually comic-accurate: “That happens in the comics, the words come at as random characters: $<¥{ ?|€]%.” Another commenter responded that if it’s done correctly, it could be absolutely hilarious.
