Marvel Couldn't Use Lin-Manuel Miranda In Deadpool V Gambit – But They Do Anyway (UPDATE)

Today's Deadpool V Gambit #1 sees, well Deadpool V Gambit. But dressed as Spider-Man and Daredevil. Because, you know, comics.

But their heavily referenced fight over philosophy takes them into a Broadway theatre. Which seems to be where the current hit Hamilton is playing. And someone who may be its creator and star, Lin-Manuel Miranda, hidden behind a Hamilton face due, it seems, to legal problems.

Cue as many references to Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark as you can.

How are we sure that's Miranda and Hamilton? Well, Deadpool gets a song stuck in his head.

That's Right Hand Man from Hamilton.

Not just for one scene, he comes back as well.

He doesn't look that young does he?
