Fans are waiting for when Disney finally fulfills their promise of keeping Ryan Reynolds around as Deadpool. Even though it was made obvious that Disney would recast/reboot the X-Men characters since acquiring them from Fox, even Disney knows you don’t replace Reynolds. So, when will we see him? Will his movies still be rated R despite being under the Disney umbrella?

According to Screen Geek, who found this leak on 4Chan, Disney will “retcon” Deadpool’s story – slightly. Enough to adjust Wade Wilson’s story to make it seem as if he has always been in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Here are the leaks provided by Screen Geek:

  • A new MCU Deadpool is indeed in the works. Reynolds and Feige have finally come to an agreement on what the movie will be.

  • It’s a half sequel to the established Deadpool Series and half reboot.

  • Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick will be returning to write the script along with Reynolds, who already has a barebones draft constructed that he used to pitch the movie to Feige.

  • It will be titled Deadpool: Retcon and will be set during the snap. The film will open with the entire established supporting cast of the Deadpool franchise getting snapped away. With Weasel getting snapped off screen to avoid using TJ Miller, which will be referenced in a 4th wall break.

  • Deadpool will assume this happened due to him time traveling at the end of Deadpool 2 and attempt to fix it. The running joke is that Deadpool has always been in the MCU and there’s definitely nothing strange about that. T-Ray is the villain.

  • The film will be rated R and released under the 20th Century banner. It will work a lot like the Sony Spider-Man films where the MCU is canon to Deadpool but not necessarily vice versa.

  • Reynolds signed a historically lucrative 5 film contract with Marvel Studios. This will be a big headline when this news breaks. The money is insane.

  • Expect this news by December 10th. Likely will be announced by Reynolds on Twitter/Instagram, possibly in character as Deadpool.

  • This is interesting on many levels. One is the villain, T-Ray. T-Ray was a nemesis of Deadpool during his solo comic book run and was the only villain who could also break the fourth wall, which could add to the hilarity of the film. Also, the talk of Ryan Reynolds’ lucrative contract has been rumored for a while now, so this only adds fuel to that fire. Being set during the Snap, we could get some scenes similar to the post credits scenes in Deadpool 2, like where Wade pops up in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and shoots the crappy Deadpool in the head.

What do you think about these leaks? It should be noted that since this was found on 4Chan, it should be taken as a rumor. Screen Geek does point out that previous leaks about Avengers: Infinity War, Endgame, and Spider-Man: Far From Home from 4Chan had all turned out to be true.

Either way, give us Reynolds as the Merc With the Mouth!
