I think they would have Oked Deadpool (Marvel has pushed Deadpool in extended media for a while. XMLII, Marvel Ultimate Alliance, Hulk Vs Wolverine, the Deadpool game...) but I think it would have been a very different film than we got. I highly doubt Disney would have allowed the raunchy, hard R rated film that went out of its way to be snarky about the genre that made Marvel Studios billions of dollars. That said, it WOULD have had a better budget (though, I've always been a proponent of restrictions like budgets can lead to a better product).
On an unrelated note, I went out and finally bought Guardians of the Galaxy in preparation for the sequel (don't get me wrong, it's a good film, but unlike say, Ant-Man, where I had an invested interest in the character, I don't care AT ALL about the Guardians outside of the MCU). I've been putzing my way through the special features, and I find it interesting that the one thing brought up constantly by James Gunn, the actors, and the production staff isn't the humor, the story, or much about the CGI... the biggest thing they were thinking about was color. James Gunn's big push for Guardians of the Galaxy was to bring color back to space operas, and a LOT of care was taken to find just the right shades of green for Gamora, of pink for one of the major alien races, the colors for Drax... even the dreary, desolated planet the film opens on is balanced by a vibrant skyline. It's one of those things that sounds bizarre to talk about... until you look at the other side of the aisle and see the utter failure of color usage.
