Marvel Reportedly Saving Its Big Plans for Deadpool Beyond Phase 4 of MCU

It's been a while since Disney's completed its acquisition of 21st Century Fox and the studio's film and television assets, yet Marvel has yet to announce its plans to integrate the X-Men, Fantastic Four, Deadpool, and the rest of Fox's mutant heroes, into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Things have been rather quiet on Marvel Studios end. Interestingly enough, not only has this silence encouraged fans to cook up insane theories about the X-men joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it's also allowed various sites to offer new "reports" about the mutants.

One of the most recent mutant reports focuses on Deadpool. According to Showbiz Cheat Sheet, Marvel Studios reportedly has big plans in mind for Ryan Reynolds and the actor's Merc with a Mouth film franchise.

Sure, the studio may have not released an official announcement just yet, however, the publication says that inside sources have revealed that Reynolds is set to reprise his role as Deadpool in several movies beyond Phase 4 of the MCU.

That's pretty interesting news. One, how exactly does Marvel manage to introduce Deadpool into the MCU? Number two, will Disney's version of the Merc with a Mouth allow the hero to have the same brassy and irreverent humor that he had when he was with Fox?

There aren't any answers to these questions yet. We'll have to wait for Marvel to make the announcement official before we begin clamoring for answers about Reynold's appearance in the MCU.

Phase 4 of the MCU begins when Black Widow premieres on November 6.
