Ryan Reynolds Wants A Spider-Man and Deadpool Team Up Despite Disney-Sony Negotiations. It seems the “Merc with a Mouth” was not afraid to say that he still holds hope for a Spider-Man and Deadpool team up.
Ryan Reynolds responded to tweets from fans who are disappointed about the reported Disney-Sony split that exploded online yesterday. The split would mean Disney, Marvel Studios, and Kevin Feige would no longer be involved in future Spider-Man films, despite leading man, Tom Holland, and Director, Jon Watts, are still contracted for a minimum of two films about our favorite web head.
Reynolds expressed his interest by reaching out to a fan who asked for a Spider-Man and Deadpool team up movie via his verified twitter account, @vancityreynolds.
You can. But you can only see it in my heart.

As heartbreaking as the idea of no more Spider-Man in the MCU is, there is a shred of hope for Spidey yet!
Sony released this statement regarding the reports online about the Disney-Sony negotiations to clarify any confusion, “Much of today’s news about Spider-Man has mischaracterized recent discussions about Kevin Feige’s involvement in the franchise. We are disappointed, but respect Disney’s decision not to have him continue as a lead producer of our next live-action Spider-Man film.
We hope this might change in the future, but understand that the many new responsibilities that Disney has given him – including all their newly added Marvel properties – do not allow time for him to work on IP they do not own.
Kevin is terrific and we are grateful for his help and guidance and appreciate the path he has helped put us on, which we will continue.”
The response from Sony is relatively vague, but the tone states that the studios are NOT done discussing a new deal and plan to come to terms soon, though what terms they seems to be agreeing to are unbeknownst to the media and public.
Marvel Studios has yet to release a formal statement other that saying that the negotiations are on-going and nothing is set in stone. Reportedly, Sony was much more willing to discuss a new agreement after stocks started to fall and investors began to panic merely hours after the split was reported.
With reports that Disney and Sony are still in negotiations over the financial aspects of the Spider-Man films, we will hold out hope that our “friendly neighborhood Spider-Man” is here to stay in the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe).
