In just a few weeks, X- Men Apocalypse is going to hit theaters and in light of Deadpool and Captain America, we are anticipating success.
But one question still remains: Will we see the beloved “merc with a mouth” in the X-Men universe?
Bryan Singer, a veteran of the X-Men franchise, discussed the potential idea of Deadpool making a more substantial experience in the universe.
“If you take a character as irreverent and meta as Deadpool and connect him to something as grounded and serious as X-Men, you have to do it carefully and gently. When you drop them all in together it can be a disaster. That has to be done delicately, but there’s plenty of room to do it.” – Singer.
Saying “Deadpool” and “delicate” in the same sentence is weird, they don’t go together.
It’s unclear as to whether Singer will be directly involved going forward, however. There have been rumors that he’s planning to leave the world he created way back in 2000, particularly as star Hugh Jackman has said he’s finished with Wolverine. But Singer seems too invested still to fully let it go.
“When you spend nearly two decades in a universe, to simply say, ‘I’m done,’ or, ‘I’m going to abandon it,’ just wouldn’t make sense to me…I’m very connected to this universe and a lot of these actors, and also the characters, whomever plays them. So never say never.”- Singer
