Can fans expect to see Deadpool in a future X-Men film?

Deadpool featured many X-Men references like the X-mansion and even included Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead on his adventure. With the movie being a big hit, does that mean we’ll get to see the Merc with a Mouth appear in an upcoming X-Men film?

Writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have said that they’re open to featuring other X-Men characters in a Deadpool movie.

“If you look at the ‘Iron Man’ model they had two ‘Iron Man’ [movies] before they had an ‘Avengers,’ and if left up to us, I think that would be a very prudent path,” Reese said. “The second issue at hand is the ‘X-Men’ universe timeline. ‘The X-Men’ series is currently set in the 1980s, ‘Deadpool,’ is set three decades later in our present day.”

They are also keen on the idea of Deadpool being in an X-Men film, but ultimately it’s Simon Kinberg’s decision.

“It’s a timeline that will eventually catch up I would imagine,” Wernick added. “But [‘X-Men’ producer] Simon [Kinberg’s] more the keeper of that universe and maybe we’ll see more X-Men playing in Deadpool’s sandbox and probably Deadpool playing in their sandbox at some point. Deadpool’s now become a brand and franchise unto himself, independent of the ‘X-Men’ and that’s great. And that gives the studio two franchises in one, but I think it is its own franchise, and you’ll see synergy between those two properties, but they’re two very distinct brands.”
