Following a change of schedule, Dead Pool 3 will be the first MCU movie of 2024. Marvel has moved Dead Pool 3 to May 3a date that once belonged to Captain America 4. In turn, The best of worlds has been postponed until the end of July. As I explained earlier, switching to May puts Dead Pool 3 in great company. It’s the time of year when Marvel avengers films come out, as was the case for Infinity War And End of Game. The Kang Dynasty And Secret Wars will also be launched in May.
So i think that Dead Pool 3 will be hugely important to the MCU. The main purpose of the crossover will be to bring Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) to the MCU from the Fox universe. But yes, it is a crossover because Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) will appear alongside Deadpool. Leaks have also suggested that other X-Men will be in the film, which isn’t a huge spoiler. It’s something fans realized when Reynolds and Jackman appeared in a video together last September to tease the film.
But as for the specific mutants that will appear in Dead Pool 3it’s still a big spoiler and the one I’m going to address in this article, in addition to another related to the X-Men Dead Pool 3 plot detail that could have leaked. You should know that big spoilers will follow belowyou might want to skip this if you’d rather be surprised next May.
The X-Men we want
Colossus (Stefan Kapicic), Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand), and Yukio (Shioli Kutsuna) are X-Men from Deadpool 2 which will apparently appear in the sequel. We would certainly expect to see some legacy characters from the Fox movies as well.
But these aren’t the MCU’s X-Men. Now that Marvel controls the rights to the characters, it will be making its own X-Men movies and shows. But until that happens, Marvel will rely on Fox’s mutants, like Deadpool or Wolverine. And rumors indicate that other characters from the Fox universe will appear in Dead Pool 3 Also.
Potential additions include Storm (Halle Berry), Jean Gray (Fame Janssen), and Cyclops (James Marsden). Add to that Professor X (Patrick Stewart) and Magneto (Ian McKellen), and Dead Pool 3 suddenly becomes a must-have watch if it wasn’t already.
On that note, Stewart teased that he and McKellen aren’t done with their roles as mutants just yet. And Berry also teased her return as Storm on social media.
I’ve already told you how excited I am to see Storm back in action. But there’s another X-Men I’ve been dying to see on screen since Marvel didn’t buy Fox.
It’s Channing Tatum’s Gambit. And if MyTimeToShineHello’s recent scoop is correct, Tatum has already filmed his Gambit cameo for Dead Pool 3.
This would be fantastic news and matches another unconfirmed rumor that Ben Affleck’s Daredevil could have a cameo in the sequel.
The Mess of X-Men Continuity
The Gambit cameo is just one of the exciting Dead Pool 3 weekend leaks. A different initiate who bears the name CanWeGetSomeToast took to TikTok to share another Dead Pool 3 spoiler (after the mess of a weekend on Twitter):
The leaker mentioned one of the worst things about the Fox universe when it comes to X-Men movies, and that’s continuity. Dead Pool 3 could use Fox’s disdain for continuity as a plot point. Although the lessor didn’t share specific details, we can still speculate.
Remember that time travel does not allow you to change the past. Instead, it creates different realities that the VAT can quickly prune, assuming there is a VAT.
Fox wasn’t afraid to introduce time travel into his x-men movies. Marvel can fix everything by simply separating the different realities of the Fox universe. I’m just speculating here, of course.
About a certain Wanda from the multiverse
Speaking of different realities, another insider mentioned an MCU timeline that Dead Pool 3 could explore. According Alex Perezwe will see Wanda-838 (Elizabeth Olsen) in the sequel:
As a reminder, Wanda-838 is the character that the MCU’s main Wanda had in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Principal Wanda has used her variant’s body to wreak havoc in this universe. And given that Earth-838 has its own Avengers, Fantastic Four, X-Men, and Illuminati, it’s one of the most exciting universes to explore.
Also, I can’t help but wonder if Wanda-838 is Magneto’s daughter in this universe.
The Return of Jean Gray
Finally, Perez also dropped another exciting tidbit on Dead Pool 3, the one we had already heard. Responding to a question about Jean Grey’s arrival, Perez shared the following GIF:
Having Jean Gray meet Wolverine is definitely on my bingo card for Dead Pool 3.
Hopefully all of these rumors will come to fruition and Marvel will deliver these cameos in a way that serves the overall story.
