Deadpool’s Ryan Reynolds wants to have Ben Affleck’s Batman in his latest foray into the MCU in Deadpool 3. According to a report from Giant Freakin Robot, Reynolds intends to make fun of Bruce Wayne in Deadpool’s Marvel multiverse adventure.
Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool loves to make fun of anything, if possible, everything. And with his special ability to break the fourth wall, his antics would be interesting to see. Even though Deadpool is a Marvel character, he never shied away from making jokes about DC.
Deadpool has made jokes about Green Lantern in both Deadpool films. He also referenced the “Martha” joke that was used as a plot point in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. He even called himself Batman when Cable, played by Josh Brolin, asked who he was. Nothing is safe under the eyes of Deadpool.
Now that it seems that the new DC will not be using Ben Affleck’s version of Batman, it seems like it would be an interesting thing to joke about. And if it does happen, it means that the DCEU exists in the MCU multiverse.
Come on, since anything and everything can happen in the multiverse, it is a possibility. In other words, would there be a chance to see Henry Cavill’s Superman too, at some point? Will the DCEU crossover finally with Marvel?
Ryan Reynolds Wants Deadpool To Meet Batman
While it might be years away before we see Marvel and DC crossover officially, Deadpool 3 could be a loophole that could make it happen. Maybe not the new DC Universe, but maybe the DCEU? I know that would be wishful thinking, but hey, why not?
Before James Gunn was appointed as the co-CEO of DC Studios, he had conversations with Kevin Feige about making a DC and Marvel crossover. He did reveal this while promoting his take on The Suicide Squad.
He mentioned he wanted to see King Shark, Rocket Racoon, Weasel and Groot come together. That in itself would be interesting to see.
But I doubt that there is any chance of that happening anytime soon. DC Studios will be focused on working on their universe first before they can consider making a crossover at this point.
The question is, will Gunn (or Warner Bros. Discovery) allow Deadpool to make fun of the defunct DC Universe? I’m sure there is nothing stopping Ryan Reynolds and his team working on Deadpool 3 from making jokes about it. But I do wonder how far they can take it if they do.
Ben Affleck has played Batman four times so far. This also includes his reshoots for Zack Snyder’s Justice League. His fifth would be in Ezra Miller’s The Flash, which is still set to be released on June 16, 2023.
We don’t know if it’s going to be his last, because we know he has shot scenes for Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom. We just don’t know if DC Studios will be keeping those. It has already been confirmed that the actor won’t be Batman for the new DC Universe.

As far as I’m concerned, I actually enjoyed Affleck’s portrayal of the character. I just wish he was able to do it justice, he just needed a solo film. I just wonder if they’ll get the chance to talk about this in Deadpool if Ryan Reynolds gets Bruce Wayne.
Deadpool 3 already has Hugh Jackman returning as Wolverine. There are also reports that the film might also dive into previous 20th Century Fox properties like the X-Men and the Fantastic Four.
It would be interesting if they could add DCEU’s Batman into the mix, even for just a cameo. We did get to see a split-second cameo of Brad Pitt in Deadpool 2, so why not Affleck?
