Ryan Reynolds Wanted a Deadpool-Bambi Crossover

Yeah, you read that right. In a recent interview with IGN, Deadpool leading man Ryan Reynolds revealed that he pitched a Deadpool-Bambi crossover short film to Disney. It was immediately shot down.

I wanted to do a short film of Deadpool interrogating the hunter who killed Bambi’s mom. But the whole gist of it is that Deadpool is actually just a huge fan. He’s not interrogating — he just wants to know how he could be the most loathed Disney character in the history of Disney. And of course, Disney was like, ‘Well, I don’t think that’s ever going to happen.’

The rug pull of it though is that you think that Deadpool’s going to kill the hunter, but Deadpool was actually just a huge fan. He wants to know how he too can be as loathed as the hunter is in the Disney universe. And they just shut that down immediately. Like; ‘There’s absolutely no way you’re doing [that].’

I have no idea how Reynolds even conceived of this outlandish crossover idea, but it’s still pretty hilarious. Deadpool did get a different crossover however, appearing with the MCU’s Korg to react to Ryan Reynold’s new movie Free Guy. That video has over six million views on Reynolds’ Twitter alone with millions more views across the Internet.
