Part of what makes She-Hulk such a fun character in the comics is her knack for breaking the fourth wall, which has already been shown in the first episode of her Disney+ series, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law starring Tatiana Maslany and Mark Ruffalo. But while she may have been the first to use this classic trope in Marvel comics, Wade Wilson/Deadpool has become arguably the most popular character in all media to do this during his own run in comics and movies.
Now that Disney has officially brought the X-Men into the MCU, Ryan Reynolds is already prepped and ready to bring Deadpool 3 into play, which will be Marvel Studios’ first R-rated movie. This threequel will once again feature Wade Wilson referencing the audience as he adjusts to his new Marvel Studios setting, which should make for arguably one of the funniest projects in MCU history.
With two fourth-wall breakers either already in the MCU or coming soon, fans are naturally wondering how they will affect one another. Well, Ruffalo may have an answer to that inquiry thanks to his latest interview.
Mark Ruffalo on She-Hulk’s Ties to Deadpool
Speaking with IGN, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law star Mark Ruffalo teased how She-Hulk could have an impact on Deadpool’s MCU arrival.
When asked if this series will reassure people that Disney will do Deadpool right, Ruffalo praised Marvel for letting “the filmmakers make the film they want to make” throughout the MCU.
He also looked back to his time on Thor: Ragnarok, in which they basically “reimagined” his Hulk and Chris Hemsworth’s Thor, even tying it back to She-Hulk by saying that the show opens the door to what Deadpool can do in the MCU.
