Director of Guardians of the Galaxy, James Gunn, just joined the club of Deadpool 2 fans, tweeting about the film after watching it and having thoroughly enjoyed his experience. Ryan Reynolds responded to the tweet asking for a ‘crossover’ and when Gunn replied in the affirmative, fans lost their chill over the Twitter exchange.
James Gunn must be one of the last few people left on Earth to watch the new Deadpool movie, over a week after its release. He tweeted about the film, “Yesterday I finally saw @deadpoolmovie 2, which I love, and also the brilliant #Revenge. Two completely different, fantastic films – cinema’s alive! Thanks @DavidMLeitch @VancityReynolds @coraliefargeat @MatildaLutz for a great day at the movies.”
His praise was met with an interesting comment from Ryan Reynolds, who wrote, “Thank you James! Crossover?”. To which Gunn replied saying “Yes, please”.
Fans are super excited about the possibility of seeing their favourite anti-hero in a film with beloved characters like Groot and Star Lord from GotG . Many cannot contain their excitement exclaiming phrases like ‘Yes’ and ‘Please’.

Deadpool and Groot can both re-grow their limbs. That’d be a fun competition to watch pic.twitter.com/8c0h4SOdGK

While most fans think that Reynolds may be asking for a crossover between GotG and Deadpool, others are convinced he meant a crossover between Revenge and Deadpool. The latter two films are both R-rated, albeit for different reasons.
The action-packed thriller Revenge is directed by French filmmaker Coralie Fargeat and tackles heavy themes like rape-revenge. Deadpool is rated-R for the sexual references, explicit humour and strong violence in the film. Both films have been receiving great reviews from audiences and critics.
Naw man, a deadpool/revenge crossover

I think Ryan meant Deadpool and Revenge

As of now, chances of Deadpool and GotG crossover are slim as Marvel does not own film rights to Deadpool. Film rights for the Marvel character belong to 20th Century Fox, same as with Wolverine and X-Men. However, fans are still not willing to lose hope, and some are downright emotional about the possibility.
Man I’m getting so excited seeing this conversation, that I’m even getting tears in eyes. And I’m not a crier

Reynolds is yet to confirm what crossover he was referring to, but knowing the snarky star he will probably just leave fans wondering.
