Deadpool Technically Enters The Marvel Cinematic Universe Via A Reaction YouTube Video

When it comes to breaking the fourth wall, there just isn’t one anymore when it comes to Deadpool. The wall is non-existent. It has been obliterated. It has ceased to be. The latest video from Ryan Reynold’s Merc with the Mouth manages to promote both Reynolds’s upcoming movie-Free Guy– whilst also teasing Deadpool finally making it into the MCU (kind of) and spoofing all of those reaction YouTube channels. In short, it us the video that we all wanted but never thought would actually come to fruition and yet here we are.

The video stars Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool (I mean, obviously. Plus it’s his YouTube channel that uploaded it) and we get to see him interacting with an actual Marvel Cinematic Universe character: Korg, the loveable rock giant played by New Zealand born actor and director Taika Waititi whose first appearance was in Thor: Ragnorak. This team up isn’t all that surprising seeing as Waititi is playing the villain in Free Guy. These two characters work crazily well together, with Korg’s innocent sweetness and random, hilarious commentary (“I was raised by avocadoes”) playing off of Deadpool’s irreverent cynicism beautifully. I also appreciate that whilst Korg refers to his actor Waititi as “quite nice actually”, Deadpool states that his own actor- Reynolds- has a very “punchable face.” This better be a pair up that we see in the MCU at some point. Deadpool continues to rip on Disney throughout, including the streaming service Disney Plus- especially the Marvel shows- Disney live action remakes and the acquisition of 20th Century Fox by Disney. Because of course he does. Self-referential humour, remember? It’s kind of his thing.

The reaction video has had many people campaigning for Taika Waititi to direct the upcoming Deadpool 3– which was confirmed at the beginning of the year to be a part of the MCU and maintaining its R rating. Thor: Ragnorak was such a pleasant surprise after the monotony of Thor: The Dark World (no matter what Deadpool says) and I think that Waititi’s personal style of filmmaking and storytelling could work really well with the Deadpool film franchise. Make sure to check out the whole video above for more fourth wall mutilation.
