Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe is a popular comic book series that has been a topic of discussion among Marvel fans for years. The series features the beloved anti-hero Deadpool taking on the entire Marvel Universe, killing off some of the most iconic characters in the process.
But will we ever see this storyline adapted into a movie? Let’s explore.
What is Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe?
Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe is a four-issue comic book miniseries written by Cullen Bunn and illustrated by Dalibor Talajić. The story takes place in an alternate universe where Deadpool has gone insane after being subjected to mind control by Psycho-Man. In this universe, he sets out on a mission to kill every superhero and villain in the Marvel Universe, including popular characters like Spider-Man, Wolverine, and Thor.
Could Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe be adapted into a movie?
The short answer: it’s unlikely. While there has been no official word from Marvel or Disney about adapting this storyline into a movie, it’s important to consider why it may not happen.
Firstly, the storyline is incredibly dark and violent. While Deadpool as a character is known for his irreverent humor and violence, this storyline takes things to another level entirely. It’s not something that would fit into Disney’s family-friendly brand or even Marvel Studios’ more mature films like Logan or Deadpool.
Secondly, many of the characters that are killed off in this storyline are owned by other studios. For example, Spider-Man is owned by Sony Pictures and X-Men characters are owned by Fox (which was recently acquired by Disney). This means that if Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe were adapted into a movie, it would require complex legal negotiations between studios to make it happen.
So what are our options?
One possibility could be an animated adaptation of the comic book series. Animation allows for more creative freedom and could potentially capture the dark and violent tone of the storyline without worrying about a rating or fitting into the larger Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Another option could be a loose adaptation of the storyline in a future Deadpool movie. While it’s unlikely that we’ll see every character in the Marvel Universe killed off, elements of the storyline could be incorporated into a future film. For example, Deadpool could go on a killing spree against some lesser-known villains or even alternate universe versions of himself.
While it’s unlikely that we’ll ever see a faithful adaptation of Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe, fans can still enjoy the comic book series and speculate about what could have been. As the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to expand, there may be opportunities for elements of this storyline to be incorporated into future films or TV shows. Until then, we’ll just have to settle for imagining what a Deadpool versus Spider-Man showdown would look like on the big screen.
