Chris Hemsworth has welcomed Ryan Reynolds to the Marvel Cinematic Universe by sharing a picture of Deadpool adorned with Thor paraphernalia.
Hemsworth shared the image on Instagram with the caption “Our love child.” The image itself shows Deadpool holding a mini Mjölnir and wearing Thor’s helmet. It also features an Avengers logo on Deadpool’s shoulder, along with a Mickey Mouse icon looming in the background. It’s not currently clear who created the image.
Last week, just before Disney officially acquired 21st Centry Fox for $71.3 billion dollars, Reynolds posted a picture of Deadpool wearing Mickey Mouse ears while riding in a Disney school bus. Per The Hollywood Reporter, “Reynolds’ Deadpool is expected to be the only iteration of the X-Men to make the jump to Disney,” suggesting the rest of the X-Men will undergo a reboot, though Deadpool may enter the MCU unscathed.
While Deadpool’s more adult-oriented content might have a hard time blending in with the MCU, Disney CEO Bob Iger has said on multiple occasions that Disney will keep R-Rated Fox properties as R-Rated.
