Warning: This post contains spoilers for Loki episode 6
A new piece of Loki crossover art sees Deadpool becomes a TVA agent in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Marvel Studios’ latest Disney+ series, Loki, followed Tom Hiddleston’s titular trickster after being arrested by the Time Variance Authority (TVA). Throughout the series, the God of Mischief is introduced to concepts like variants, alternate timelines, and Nexus events. This leads to him and another version of himself, Sylvie, embarking on a quest to dethrone the TVA’s puppet master, liberate the Sacred Timeline, and restore free will.
In episode 6, “For All Time. Always,” Sylvie and Loki arrive at the Citadel at the End of Time and meet He Who Remains, the man behind the curtain. The resulting events of this meeting led to what has seemed inevitable since the reveal of upcoming titles like Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Following Disney’s acquisition of Fox in 2019, which brought Marvel Comics’ X-Men, Fantastic Four, and Deadpool under the control of Marvel Studios, Loki’s finale paves the way for a slew of new and familiar characters to appear in the MCU. Ryan Reynolds’ Wade Wilson/Deadpool is one of the characters fans are most excited to see.
Digital artist Mizuriau recently posted some art to Instagram depicting the Merc with a Mouth as a TVA agent. Like other official Loki posters, this fan art shows Deadpool with Loki’s TVA jacket fading away to reveal his red and black suit. Check out the original post below:

The day before Loki released its finale, Reynolds shared a promotional Free Guy video. In it, Deadpool prods Korg about getting into the MCU and/or his own Disney+ series while reacting to Free Guy’s trailer. Like Deadpool, Free Guy was produced by 20th Century Studios (previously 20th Century Fox) but now belongs to Disney. Reynolds’ video marked the first time Deadpool ever interacted with any MCU characters, and it certainly won’t be the last. Unlike other Fox mutants, Deadpool’s irreverent and meta nature negates the baggage that comes along with retconned timelines, mismanaged character arcs, and continuity issues.
