Ryan Reynolds metioned "Phase 5" in his instagram post, which some fans figured out could hint at when the Merc With a Mouth could make his MCU debut. Kevin Fiege confirmed that Fantastic Four and the X-Men are coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Deadpool was not included on the announcement at San Diego Comic-con, but some have suggested that an announcement might come soon.
David Leitch, the director of Deadpool 2 revealed in an interview:
"I don’t, honestly.","And it’s not for my lack of trying. And I also want to give – I’m just giving everybody their time.""I know Marvel announced their slate and I think people were like, 'Deadpool’s not on it.'" Leitch added.
"I would never say never. And I think, obviously, he’s such a beloved character and it’s such a compelling world people want to go back to. And I think they will find a way to do it. But I’m just being patient and let everybody take a breath and see how it works for them in the new Marvel, Disney world. And, hopefully, I’ll get the call. And that would be cool.
