Disney Tells Reynolds No When it Comes to Deadpool/Bambi Crossover

It is clear that fans still love Deadpool.  After the release of the trailer for Free Guy featuring Deadpool and Korg, fans went crazy and the skit soon went viral.

What was surprising to learn was that this wasn’t the original plan as Reynolds actually pitched a different idea to Disney but was told no.

His original idea had Deadpool meet the hunter who killed Bambi’s mother.  This idea quickly got put down by Disney.

Reynolds outlined his idea for this unlikely Deadpool/Bambi crossover while speaking to Collider:

“I initially asked them to do a…actually I wrote it too, a short film that I wanted to put in front of Free Guy of Deadpool interrogating the hunter who killed Bambi’s mom,” Reynolds said. “And, the sort of rug-pull, they said no of course, but the rug-pull of it was that Deadpool really wanted to know the hunter’s secrets on being the most loathed Disney character there is. Deadpool was just a huge fan and wanted to find out how he too could become the most loathed Disney character, but they said no to that.”

Well Deadpool won’t be crossing over into any of Disney’s animated classics anytime soon; however, it does seem like his transition to MCU will be a fun one.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
