Now that Disney has merged with Fox, a big question on the minds of Marvel fans everywhere is how Deadpool will fit into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While it’s likely the X-Men will be rebooted for the franchise, Ryan Reynolds is expected to continue playing the hilarious anti-hero under the Marvel Studios umbrella. Well, it looks like a crossover has occurred more quickly than anyone expected. Jeremy Renner, the actor best known for playing Clint Barton/Hawkeye/Ronin, took to Instagram to share a hilarious photo of himself getting pinned down by “Deadpool.”

“The battle has begun,” Renner wrote.
Of course, this is all in good fun and not actually a confirmation of what’s to come in the MCU, but it sure is enjoyable!
Many fans commented on the post, clearly loving the idea of a Hawkeye/Deadpool showdown.
