Actor-filmmaker Bryan Singer discussed a possibility of bringing Deadpool into a future X-Men movie.
Singer revealed it’s not a simple equation to connect the two franchises, reports variety.com.
“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,” Singer said.
“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,” he added.
One of the ways to bring Deadpool into the X-Men universe could be through an X-Force movie, the paramilitary superhero spin-off group that Deadpool has called home over the years.
Singer had brought the title up to his Fox bosses and Ryan Reynolds previously revealed a project centering on the group is a priority.
He is bringing X-Men franchises to TV with series like Hellfire and Legion. Singer serves as executive producer for both shows.
“I think the underbelly (could be explored). There is always something interesting about a school that has got a military aspect beneath its classrooms. Is there another layer to all of that? Is there another layer to the Hellfire Club? The idea of, ‘Who’s running the world?’“ he added.
