After the Merc with a Mouth had a bad joke first appearance in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and some test footage got out, Ryan Reynolds broke the fourth wall as Wade Wilson in 2016’s Deadpool. The official Deadpool Twitter page celebrates 1 million followers with a joke that’s as rude as the character it represents. Deadpool and its sequel, Deadpool 2, are two of the highest-grossing R-rated movies of all time. Deadpool made over $783 million on a small budget, and Deadpool 2 made about $786 million.
After Disney bought Fox in 2019, Marvel Studios got control of the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, and Deadpool. Now, there are a lot of people who follow the Merc with a Mouth on social media. At first, there was no news about Deadpool 3, but Kevin Feige soon said that a third movie was in the works as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Reynolds has since made a sort of MCU debut with Korg to promote Free Guy while people wait for Deadpool 3. Which will be directed by Shawn Levy and written by the original screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.
The official Deadpool Twitter account recently made a phallic bad joke to mark reaching 1 million followers. With the caption “Underachieving since 2014.” The post compared Deadpool’s followers to those of several Marvel accounts. Including the Hulk, who fans were told to “ignore.” The post’s alt text says, “Next goal: a million dreams,” a line from Hugh Jackman’s movie The Greatest Showman. Look at it here:

Reynolds told Deadpool 2’s Josh Brolin, “Shut up, Thanos!” before Disney bought him, so it’s only natural that the movie’s official Twitter account pokes fun at other MCU characters before they appear onscreen. The decision to make fun of the Hulk comes simultaneously that She-Hulk: Attorney at Law starts on Disney+ this week. Tatiana Maslany makes her MCU debut in the new Marvel Studios show as Jennifer Walters/She-Hulk. A character whose history of breaking the fourth wall is almost as long as Wade Wilson’s.
Maslany, who plays She-Hulk, has the perfect idea for a Deadpool crossover as she talks to the audience before Reynolds. All MCU characters are fair game when Reynolds travels through the multiverse in his solo movie or before, with or without Jackman’s Wolverine. As the first Marvel Studios movie to get an R rating. Deadpool 3 and other mature projects could significantly change the MCU. You can watch Deadpool, Deadpool 2, and Logan on Disney+.
