Deadpool, which was director Miller’s first feature film, grossed over $750 million internationally, labeling the film the most successful R-rated movie ever. Quite an achievement!
Not prepared to rest on the laurels, the team behind the movie are gearing up towards Deadpool 2, with screenwriters Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese also in the mix.
To make things even more interesting, producer Simon Kinberg told SuperHeroHype, he’d love a crossover pitting Spiderman and Deadpool together in the same movie.
“I would love to see it. Both [Tim Miller and I] are close with [Marvel’s] Kevin [Feige], we respect and love Kevin. If it were even remotely possible, we will find a way ’cause we’d would love to see it.”
We’re just as excited as anyone to see that kind of project come to life, and hope that the recent deal between Sony and Marvel, will help solve any licensing issues between Fox and Marvel to enable said crossover.
