Deadpool will finally join the MCU in Doctor Strange 2 and you can blame Spider-Man.
And before you ask, yes, this will be Ryan Reynolds‘ Deadpool.
The one and only. Not a variant.
There will quite likely be spoilers ahead for Spider-man: No Way Home (and Deadpool, but if you aren’t caught up on that – for shame!), so proceed cautiously.
A new scoop from Mikey Sutton over at Geekosity breaks down how Deadpool enters the MCU, with Spider-Man’s help.
According to Sutton (who basically had a dozen No Way Home scoops confirmed last month), Deadpool will enter the MCU via the same spell Dr. Strange used.
You know, the spell Spider-Man messed up?
With Deadpool’s use of the fourth wall, it would make sense that he would know Peter Parker is Spider-Man.
How many times did he mention Hugh Jackman as Wolverine in the previous Deadpool films?
Spider-Man Brings Deadpool To The MCU In Doctor Strange 2
The report at Geekosity states that Deadpool’s entrance into the MCU will be in Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness.
As we saw from the trailer Doctor Strange will be dealing with the Multiverse and the fallout from Spider-Man: No Way Home.
With the sheer number of characters we witnessed in the trailer, we have to assume that what they’re hiding is even bigger.
The trailer alone included Wong, Mordo, Scarlett Witch, and a dark version of Doctor Strange himself.
Some theorize this is the Doctor Strange we saw in Marvel’s What If?.
This leaves a lot of room for other characters and even variants to show up.
Moreover, with all the hype surrounding Deadpool’s entrance into the MCU, why not have our favorite Merc with a Mouth show up?
Deadpool Enters The MCU In Doctor Strange 2. But When?
Geekosity revealed that a post-credits scene would be where our foul-mouthed friend appears.
That begs the question, will The Merc With A Mouth swear in the new Doctor Strange movie?
It’s unlikely as the movie is PG-13, but even those movies allow for one f-bomb.
Would they save that one curse for an after-credits scene?
With Deadpool, that would make sense, though anything is possible.
Does this affect Deadpool in his own movies moving forward?
In a word, no.
We have been assured that the chimi changa assassin will remain Rated-R as he moves from his former home at Fox to the new digs in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Does this mean we could finally see Spider-Man and Deadpool trading jabs back and forth?
One can only guess, though that is putting the cart before the horse.
For now, all we can do is wait and watch as Deadpool joins the MCU.
