As the summer box office heats up with new releases, it acts as a much-needed warm-up before the highly anticipated arrival of Deadpool & Wolverine in theaters. However, Shawn Levy’s keen foresight means the film not only has a pre-workout but also a post-workout strategy. Although Deadpool & Wolverine has yet to hit theaters, Levy has already decided that the next superhero he envisions teaming up with Deadpool is none other than the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, Peter Parker.

Until now, the mercs and claws kept the world on edge with excitement. But with the potential for Deadpool and Spidey's antics, the chaos is undoubtedly set to double.

In the latest issue of Total Film via Games Radar, director Shawn Levy shared his desire for Wade Wilson, played by Ryan Reynolds to team up with Peter Parker (Tom Holland) in a future film. Discussing Deadpool’s antics and “audacity,” Levy emphasized that this boldness is what makes the character so intriguing. He believes this audacity would soar if Deadpool joined forces with “Spidey.” 

“I feel like Tom Holland would run circles around everyone else,” Levy remarked, expressing his enthusiasm for such a project. While Levy envisions a Deadpool and Spider-Man collaboration, producer Wendy Jacobson expressed interest in a showdown between Deadpool and She-Hulk villain Titania. Although Deadpool & Wolverine open the door for Marvel’s Merc with a Mouth to engage with various heroes and villains, one still needs to await its theatrical arrival to experience such a dramatic unfolding.
