Taron Egerton Thinks a ‘Kingsman’-‘Deadpool’ Crossover Would Be a Great Idea
In the world of cinematic crossover fantasies, anything is possible. What would any of us give for the Avengers to meet the Justice League, or the G.I. Joe soldiers to meet the Transformers (which might actually happen), or for every character ever created by Wes Anderson to team up and fight crime? Most of these could never happen, just due to budgetary concerns or two series being owned by different companies, but it’s great fodder for all the fanfiction websites out there. And sometimes actors give us their own input on which crossovers they’d love to see.
When Taron Egerton, star of Kingsman: The Secret Service, spoke to MTV about the new animated movie Sing, in which he plays a Gorilla named Johnny, he was asked which movie he’d love to mash Kingsman up with. His answer was not so surprising:
Wow. That’s a hell of a question. I guess the tone of Deadpool would probably lend itself best. You know, some of the others are maybe a bit more family oriented, whereas Kingsman and Deadpool are both pretty ‘R’, so I guess maybe that would work quite well. Ryan’s a great guy.
It would make for quite a crossover. Both films had an emphasis on unfiltered violence and both involved people being trained in multiple fighting styles and firearm usage, not to mention some pretty fantastic fight scenes. And, hey, both franchises are owned by 20th Century Fox, soooooo. When asked what exactly a Deadpool/Kingsman (Kingpool? Deadman?) movie would include, Egerton was overwhelmed by the possibilities.
Who knows, who knows. I don’t know. I dread to think what those boys would get up to.
