Avengers: Endgame director Joe Russo explains why Deadpool would NEVER fit into Infinity War – watch exclusive video

Unless you’re living under a rock, you would be aware that Walt Disney has acquired the entertainment properties owned by 21st Century Fox. This deal brought several Marvel characters like the X-Men and Fantastic Four under the mouse house banner. Ever since this announcement, Marvel Cinematic Universe fans are eager to know how Marvel Studios will treat these characters, especially Deadpool. While we’ll have to wait until Marvel Studios makes the announcement, BollywoodLife wondered if the Disney-Fox deal were to have happened a few years ago, would Joe and Anthony Russo introduce the beloved Merc with a mouth through Avengers: Infinity War or Avengers: Endgame. So, we asked Joe if he would have introduced Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool in Infinity War and Endgame.

The Avengers: Endgame co-director said that Deadpool would never fit into Avengers: Infinity War. “His tone is so unique, he breaks the fourth wall and talks straight to the camera. Infinity War doesn’t do that. So, I don’t know if Infinity War would be the right film to introduce him,” Joe said.

Joe Russo was in India to promote Avengers: Endgame. The director was in Mumbai to launch the Marvel Anthem composed by AR Rahman and interact with fans. The filmmaker was also seen treating his palate to different cuisines. He was spotted relishing a and was photographed binging on street food too.

The filmmaker also spilled a few beans about Avengers: Endgame. Joe confirmed that while Avengers: Infinity War was told from Thanos’ perspective, it wouldn’t be the same in Avengers: Endgame.

Avengers: Endgame releases on April 26. The movie sees the core Avengers reuniting (maybe for the last time). The star cast includes Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Brie Larson, Paul Rudd, Karen Gillan, Gwyneth Paltrow, Bradley Cooper, Don Cheadle and Josh Brolin to name a few. The movie is jointly directed by Joe and Anthony Russo.
