Summary: Robert Downey Jr’s recent tweet about Deadpool 3 has sparked excitement among fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Iron Man star hinted at a possible collaboration with Ryan Reynolds’ popular anti-hero, leading many to speculate about what the future holds for both characters.
1. RDJ’s Tweet
On October 26, Robert Downey Jr took to Twitter to share a photoshopped image of himself as Tony Stark alongside Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds. The caption read “Re̷̸͘҉̛̕̕à̵͠͠l̛ ̶̛̈́͗̓̆̈́̅̂̔͘̚͝͠į̷̶̵̬̩̱̖̯̘s̸̡̛̜̫̺̹̼̪t̵̡̡̨̢̖̬̭̥͍̬̘i̶̛͐̓́̇̎͑̂̀͛͌̊͑͌̕̕͘͝͠͝c̸̸͑̏̓̑̈́͛̽̀̋̐̒͐̾̂̐͘̚e̸̴̙̮̙̲̞̱̭̣͖̭ ̶̛̣̲̬̻̓͆͋͊̊͋̏̽̃̕͘̕L̴̢̜͓̯͉͂̏̈́̑͆̇̋̃̈Į̷̢̧͚̲̤̪͐͝͠F̸̨̛̣͖̫̗͊È̴̳͕̂̈͛̌̀̇̀͋̀̈͗͋̽̓̔͋̚͝ͅ”
This cryptic message left fans wondering whether the two actors would be teaming up for future movies, with many speculating that this could mean a crossover between Deadpool and the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
In the past, Reynolds has been vocal about his desire to collaborate with fellow Marvel superheroes on the big screen. With Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox, which owns the rights to Deadpool, it seems like this dream may become a reality.
RDJ’s tweet could also be a nod to the fact that his character Tony Stark sacrificed himself in Avengers: Endgame, leaving a void that needs to be filled in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Could Deadpool be the anti-hero to step up and take Iron Man’s place?
2. Deadpool: The Perfect Addition to the MCU?
With its R-rated humor and graphic violence, Deadpool might seem like an odd fit for the family-friendly Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, the anti-hero’s irreverent tone and fourth-wall breaking antics have won over fans and critics alike, making him one of the most beloved characters in the comic book world.
Some fans have speculated that Deadpool’s next outing could involve a multiverse storyline, which would allow him to interact with characters from different universes and timelines. This would make him the perfect addition to the MCU, as his meta humor and self-awareness could help to bridge the gap between the different worlds and storylines.
Additionally, Deadpool’s tendency to break the fourth wall and address the audience directly could introduce a new level of interactivity and engagement into the MCU. Imagine Deadpool popping up in the middle of a serious Avengers scene to question why they’re all so serious, or making snarky comments about the plot holes and inconsistencies in the storyline.
3. RDJ’s Legacy and Ironheart
Since Robert Downey Jr’s departure from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, fans have been speculating about who will take on the role of Iron Man. One popular theory is that RDJ’s character Tony Stark will be replaced by Riri Williams, a young inventor and engineering genius who takes on the mantle of Ironheart.
Ironheart has been described as a ‘spiritual successor’ to Iron Man, and her inclusion in phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe seems likely. If RDJ’s tweet is a nod to this upcoming storyline, then it could mean that Deadpool will play a role in introducing Ironheart and setting up her solo movie or TV series.
Additonally, RDJ’s tweet could be a tease for an Ironheart/Deadpool team-up, as both characters share a irreverent sense of humor and a tendency towards offbeat gadgets and inventions. Could we see Ironheart create a new suit for Deadpool, or vice versa?
4. The Possibility of a Deadpool 3
After the success of Deadpool and Deadpool 2, fans have been eagerly awaiting news of a third movie. However, with the acquisition of 20th Century Fox by Disney, the future of the franchise has been uncertain.
RDJ’s tweet could be a sign that a new Deadpool movie is in the works, possibly as a joint venture between Marvel Studios and Ryan Reynolds’ production company Maximum Effort. Fans have also speculated that the movie could explore a wider range of characters and storylines, including characters from the larger Marvel universe and crossovers with other upcoming projects.
Regardless of whether a third movie is in the works or not, RDJ’s tweet has certainly created buzz and excitement among fans of both Deadpool and the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Robert Downey Jr’s tweet about Deadpool 3 has sparked excitement and speculation among fans of both the comic book anti-hero and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. From potential crossovers to character introductions and team-ups, there are numerous possibilities for how these two worlds could intersect.
While nothing has been confirmed yet, it’s clear that fans are eager to see more of both Robert Downey Jr and Ryan Reynolds on the big screen.
