10 Great Deadpool & Spider-Man Stories Marvel Should Adapt After Shawn Levy’s Comments

  • Deadpool & Wolverine director Shawn Levy wants to bring together Deadpool and Spider-Man in the MCU.
  • Deadpool and Spider-Man have teamed-up many times in Marvel Comics, so there are several brilliant stories that could be adapted for live-action.
  • Deadpool and Spider-Man could begin as enemies before becoming friends, and may battle the likes of Tombstone, Venom, the Chameleon, and Kraven the Hunter.
Marvel Studios could adapt any of Marvel Comics' brilliant Deadpool and Spider-Man stories into live-action after Shawn Levy's comments regarding a potential MCU team-up. Shawn Levy has recently been working on Marvel Studios' upcoming Deadpool & Wolverine, which is set to bring Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool and Hugh Jackman's Wolverine into the MCU proper for the first time ever. This team-up movie could set the tone for future partnerships for the Merc with a Mouth, including one with everyone's favorite Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man.
In the latest issue of Total Film (via GamesRadar), director Shawn Levy expressed his wish to bring Deadpool and Spider-Man together in the MCU. Deadpool and Spider-Man were one of Marvel Comics' most unlikely partnerships, but the pair embarked on many adventures together. Deadpool was also featured in pairings with other heroes, including Daredevil, but Marvel Studios has a huge wealth of Marvel Comics storylines available to be adapted into a potential Deadpool and Spider-Man team-up movie.
The thing about Deadpool is I think he makes everything more interesting because of his audacity. But, boy, I’d sure love to see Deadpool and Spidey. That's a movie I’d love to make. I feel like Tom Holland would run circles around everyone else.

10 Deadpool & Spider-Man Could Swap Costumes To Defeat The Chameleon The Chameleon May Already Have Appeared In The MCU Close One part of Deadpool and Spider-Man's epic team-up series in Marvel Comics saw the titular heroes take on the Chameleon, a master of disguise and one of Spider-Man's most memorable villains. When the Chameleon imitated people close to Peter Parker, driving the wall-crawler to the brink of paranoia, Deadpool devised a plan to play the villain at his own game. Swapping costumes, Deadpool and Spider-Man managed to fool the Chameleon, which would be an entertaining story to tell in the MCU.
Helping this is the fact that Marvel Studios may have already teased the Chameleon in the MCU. Spider-Man: Far From Home introduced Numan Acar as Dimitri, one of Nick Fury's associates who could be the MCU's Dmitri Smerdyakov, the real identity of Marvel Comics' Chameleon. While this hasn't been confirmed, bringing back Acar's Dimitri as the Chameleon could be a great way to bring Deadpool and Spider-Man together, wrapping up a five-year-old mystery.
Fred Hechinger will portray Dmitri Smerdyakov's Chameleon in the upcoming Kraven the Hunter movie in Sony's Spider-Man Universe.
9 Deadpool & Spider-Man Could Fight Life Model Decoys Together Life Model Decoys Haven’t Made Their Official MCU Debut Close Throughout the Spider-Man/Deadpool series, which ran between 2016 and 2019 in Marvel Comics, the web-slinger and the Merc with a Mouth battled a series of Life Model Decoys (LMDs). LMDs haven't been introduced into the MCU's main continuity just yet, but the robotic simulants had a massive role in Marvel Television's Agents of SHIELD, meaning they could make the move to the MCU soon. LMDs could pose a huge threat to Deadpool and Spider-Man, and would be a clear response to recent MCU events.
Marvel Studios projects, including Captain Marvel and Secret Invasion, have stressed the theme of notable heroes being replaced by stand-ins. In these cases, this has been thanks to the shape-shifting Skrulls, but introducing LMDs to the MCU could add an extra, man-made, flair to this trend. This could see Deadpool and Spider-Man come together to take down numerous Deadpool LMDs, perhaps even in an alternate future timeline where they are hilarious elderly superheroes.

8 Major Spider-Man Villain Could Pose A Threat To Deadpool In The MCU’s Future Tombstone Tried To Frame Deadpool In Marvel Comics Close 2009's five-issue Deadpool: Suicide Kings limited series saw Deadpool go up against the formidable Spider-Man villain Tombstone. During this event, Tombstone framed Deadpool as a terrorist, leading to the Merc with a Mouth coming into opposition with prominent heroes Daredevil, the Punisher, and Spider-Man. This would be a great story to explore in the MCU, particularly since Deadpool is about to be a completely new player in the franchise's main timeline, and therefore a potentially-easy target for villains.
Tombstone has been speculated to appear in Tom Holland's next Spider-Man trilogy, so this could begin to tease his vendetta against heroes such as Deadpool. A Shawn Levy-directed Deadpool and Spider-Man team-up movie focused on the Suicide Kings storyline would also constitute appearances by Charlie Cox's Daredevil and Jon Bernthal's Punisher. This could truly begin to establish Deadpool as a permanent cog in the MCU machine.

7 Inferior Deadpool Could Introduce A Very Different Spider-Man Deadpool Teamed Up With The Superior Spider-Man In Marvel Comics Close While it would be fantastic to see Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool partner with Tom Holland's Spider-Man, it's also possible that the Merc with a Mouth could join forces with a very different Spider-Man. During Marvel Comics' Deadpool (Vol. 5) #10 in 2013, Deadpool teamed-up with Otto Octavius' Superior Spider-Man in the wake of Peter Parker's death and Octavius taking over his body. While Peter Parker had a short fuse for Deadpool's hilarious antics, Octavius' Superior Spider-Man had none at all.
There has been speculation that Tom Holland's career as Spider-Man could come to an end in his next MCU trilogy, opening the door for someone new to replace him. In a brilliant twist, this could be the MCU's Otto Octavius, introducing the Superior Spider-Man, and providing a future team-up movie between Deadpool and the wall-crawler with an interesting dynamic. However, this may lack the buddy-cop likability of Deadpool and Spider-Man's stories in Marvel Comics.
Alfred Molina portrayed Dr. Otto Octavius in 2004's Spider-Man 2 and 2021's Spider-Man: No Way Home, but Marvel Studios could still debut a new version of the villain in the MCU proper.
6 Spider-Man 4’s Possible Villain Could Bring Deadpool Into The Fray Marvel Comics Saw Symbiotes Bond With Dinosaurs (Accidentally Released By Deadpool) Close After Spider-Man: No Way Home's post-credits scene, one of the most likely villains expected to appear in Marvel Studios' upcoming Spider-Man 4 is the alien symbiote Venom. The SSU's Venom: The Last Dance may change this, but the prospect of Venom appearing in the MCU proper creates the opportunity for this wild Deadpool and Spider-Man team-up story to unfold. After Deadpool accidentally unleashed dinosaurs in New York in 2008's Cable & Deadpool #50, symbiotes bonded to the creatures, forcing Deadpool and Spider-Man to fight them together.
This story may be too outlandish for the live-action MCU, but Marvel Studios could make alterations to make it more believable and realistic. Symbiotes are expected (or at least hoped) to be a major part of Spider-Man's MCU future, and adapting this tale could allow Deadpool to further cement himself as part of the MCU's primary timeline. This would mark a powerful MCU debut for Venom, which is essential as Venom: The Last Dance will be his final SSU movie.
Tom Hardy's Eddie Brock left a piece of the Venom symbiote in the MCU in Spider-Man: No Way Home, and dinosaurs then briefly appeared in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, so an adaptation of this storyline is shockingly possible.
5 Deadpool & Spider-Man Could Travel To The MCU’s Weirdworld Weirdworld Plays A Big Role In Marvel’s Secret Wars Event Close Marvel Comics' Weirdworld was initially established as a magical realm separate to the main universe, but 2015's Secret Wars event ended with Weirdworld manifesting in Earth-616. This allowed Deadpool and Spider-Man to journey to the strange land in Spider-Man/Deadpool #13 during their battle against Itsy-Bitsy. This could be an interesting story to explore in the MCU, particularly since Marvel Studios has already introduced a huge number of alternate realms and dimensions, and the franchise is hurtling towards the release of Avengers: Secret Wars.
Weirdworld is a place of fantastical beasts, otherworldly characters, magical landscapes, and terrifying villains, including the powerful witch Morgan le Fay. With the world of magic set to expand following the 2024 release of Agatha All Along, now may be the perfect time for Marvel Studios to introduce Weirdworld. Trapping Deadpool and Spider-Man there for a potential team-up movie would be a great way to explore the pair's dynamic, as they would need to learn to work together to be able to escape.

4 Zenpool Could Team Up With Spider-Man In An Axis Adaptation Axis Inverted Heroes’ Powers In Marvel Comics Close Their partnership here has a very different feel that would be brilliant to see in the live-action MCU.
Deadpool, Deadpool 2, and the upcoming Deadpool & Wolverine have all showcased Ryan Reynolds' Merc with a Mouth as a violent and cold-blooded killer, but a future team-up between Deadpool and Spider-Man could put a more serene twist on Wade Wilson. Marvel Comics' AXIS event in 2014 saw the Scarlet Witch and Doctor Doom inadvertently invert the morality of most of Marvel's characters, making heroes into villains and villains into heroes. This transformed the usually-aggressive Deadpool into Zenpool, a fitting partner for Spider-Man.
Unaffected by the inversion spell, Spider-Man joined forces with Zenpool during the AXIS event to take down Evan Sabahnur, the new Apocalypse. While the pair are unsuccessful, eventually joining the other heroes in battle, their partnership here has a very different feel that would be brilliant to see in the live-action MCU. This would also gift Reynolds the chance to explore new layers of Deadpool that viewers have never seen before.
3 The Infinite House Of Civil Yet Secret Crisis War Invasion Could Tie Together Multiple MCU Stories Deadpool & Spider-Man’s Team-Up In Marvel Comics Ended With This Major Event Close Marvel Comics' Spider-Man/Deadpool run came to an end in a five-part finale, which explored a massive Marvel event known as the Infinite House of Civil Yet Secret Crisis War Invasion. Returning from an adventure in the Negative Zone, Deadpool and Spider-Man found themselves in a world ravaged by the appearance of a new villain known as the Manipulator. This caused a huge war between the Earth's heroes, with many being defeated or captured, leaving only Deadpool and Spider-Man to save the day.
The title of this event is a mash-up of many previous crossover stories, so adapting it for the MCU would be a great way of tying together some of Marvel Studios' recent, separate plots. This story also played with Deadpool's fourth wall-breaking ability, initially taking it away, before having Deadpool and Spider-Man both exit the comic to save the universe from the outside. A story such as this would fit perfectly in the MCU's Multiverse Saga, and could solidify Deadpool as the true "Marvel Jesus".
Related The Multiverse Saga's Biggest Threat Was Introduced 2 Years Before Kang According To Deadpool & Wolverine Theory Deadpool & Wolverine"s recently confirmed variants suggest that the Multiverse Saga"s most powerful weapon was introduced back in Phase 4.
2 Marvel Studios Could Adapt Deadpool & Spider-Man’s First Storyline For The MCU Deadpool Time Traveled & Impersonated Spider-Man In 1997 Close The first time Marvel Comics ever featured Deadpool and Spider-Man in a storyline together, the pair didn't actually meet in person. 1997's Deadpool (Vol. 3) #11 saw Deadpool travel back in time with Blind Al, inserting himself into a classic Spider-Man story, 1967's Amazing Spider-Man #47. In an effort to find Weasel and return to his home time period, Deadpool impersonated Peter Parker, calling the wall-crawler with an anonymous tip to remove him from New York while he masqueraded as Spider-Man.
In a red-and-blue costume, it was easier for Marvel Comics' Deadpool to disguise himself as Peter Parker's Spider-Man. This will be more difficult in the MCU, as Spider-Man and Deadpool have very different costumes and vastly different builds, but this would still be an entertaining story to explore in a potential team-up movie. This could see Deadpool battle a classic Spider-Man villain, such as the Vulture or Mysterio, or even Kraven the Hunter, who he fights in the Marvel Comics storyline.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson is set to debut as Sergei Kravinoff in 2024's Kraven the Hunter, releasing as part of Sony's Spider-Man Universe, though there has been no word of a crossover with the MCU proper.
1 Deadpool & Spider-Man’s First Real Meeting Saw Them Battle Deadpool & Spider-Man Could Be Enemies In The MCU Close Deadpool is a violent, R-rated antihero who does bad things for the right reasons, while Spider-Man is an outright hero.
It wasn't until 2006's Cable & Deadpool #24 that Deadpool and Spider-Man first officially crossed paths. This storyline began the pair's frenemy dynamic that would last throughout their extensive subsequent adventures, as when Deadpool was sent by Cable to investigate and disrupt a secret military program, Peter Parker was also sent with Daily Bugle employees to do the same. This brought the wall-crawler and the Merc with a Mouth together for the first time, but they certainly didn't get off on the right foot.
This is the kind of dynamic that could be expected for Deadpool and Spider-Man's first meeting in the MCU. Deadpool is a violent, R-rated antihero who does bad things for the right reasons, while Spider-Man is an outright hero who always tries to do the right thing. This will clearly bring them into conflict with each other, so having Deadpool and Spider-Man investigate the same nefarious organization, using their opposing tactics, would be a great story for Shawn Levy to explore in a potential MCU team-up movie.
Marvel Cinematic Universe The Marvel Cinematic Universe is a multimedia superhero franchise that began in 2008 with Paramount's Iron Man starring Robert Downey Jr. The franchise quickly grew in popularity, with Disney eventually buying out Marvel Entertainment in 2009.
