Shawn Levy is one director who is connected to two of the biggest franchises at the moment. He is not only the producer and director of Stranger Things but is also helming the third Deadpool film with Ryan Reynolds.

During his recent appearance at the Emmy Awards red carpet, Levy was asked by Variety about the development of a Stranger Things Cinematic universe and he mentioned how he has been taking tips from Marvel boss Kevin Feige to do so. Speaking about the same, Shawn said that he has been spending time with Kevin Feige and added, "I’m learning a lot about how to manage a universe,So I’m taking those skills and applying them to the STCU."
When asked if he has any thoughts on merging the two worlds of Marvel and Stranger Things together with a Deadpool and Stranger Things crossover, the director replied saying, "Ryan [Reynolds] and I were trying to figure out how in the world could we do a ‘Deadpool’-‘Stranger Things’ crossover. We haven’t cracked it yet, but it’s on the table."
While this comment was enough to get fans excited and even begin to weave theories around how it could happen, Levy later took to his social media to mention that nothing serious was in the works. Taking to Twitter, he wrote, "Wade Wilson can’t stand the sight of blood, unless it’s his own or his enemies. Nose- bleeds are a hard Pass. No DP/ST crossover coming, folks. Sorry my dumb joke led to misleading headlines."
