The ink has barely dried on Disney’s historic deal to purchase 21st Century Fox for $52.4 billion in stocks, but for weeks many fans have looked at what it will mean now that all of Fox’s Marvel movies will finally be under one roof. If the mischievous nature of one Marvel hero is any indication, it could get out of control rather quickly.

Like many fans, Ryan Reynolds—aka Deadpool—has wondered what the Disney/Fox deal would mean for the Deadpool franchise. And when talks picked back up, he imagined, alongside former Johnny Storms Chris Evans and Michael B. Jordan, what new mashups he could be part of.

One of the fears about the deal—outside of Disney becoming more like a monopoly and what it means for Hollywood—is that because Disney would tone down Deadpool’s raunchiness. And while it’s still unclear if Disney will change up Deadpool at all, Reynolds hints that the Merc with a Mouth is already getting into all kinds of trouble at Disneyland.

Paging Tony Stark to Disney Jail.
