Hugh Jackman is set to reprise the role of Wolverine for Deadpool 3, but he may not be the only original X-Men character joining the Merc with a Mouth (Ryan Reynolds) in his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut.
Halle Berry has already prompted speculation that she'll be back as Storm with a recent Instagram post, and scooper @CanWeGetSomeToast is now claiming to have confirmed her return... along with Famke Jannsen as Jean Gray, and James Marsden as Cyclops.
We have no idea how these guys will factor into the plot, but Cyc, Storm, Jean and Logan made up the very first team in the now defunct 20th Century Fox franchise, so perhaps Wade travels back to that timeline to ask the mutant heroes for help and only Wolvie agrees to accompany him? Just one of numerous possibilities, but however they end up being utilized, we can't see Jannsen, Berry and Marsden having anything close to substantial roles.
Deadpool 3 is reportedly filming under the working title "Tidal Wave."
Morena Baccarin (Vanessa), Karan Soni (Dopinder), Leslie Uggams (Blind Al), Rob Delaney (Peter), Brianna Hildebrand (Negasonic Teenage Warhead) And Shioli Kutsuna (Yukio) will all return as their respective characters, and they'll be joined by franchise newcomers Emma Corrin (The Crown) and Matthew Macfadyen (Succession), whose roles are still under wraps.
Still no official word on Cable (Josh Brolin) or Domino (Zazie Beetz).
Plot details also remain a mystery for now, but Wade and Wolvie are expected to find themselves (trapped?) in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. A recent rumor claimed that Loki's TVA, including Agent Mobius (Owen Wilson) and Miss Minutes, will be involved.
We have also been led to believe that Wade's MCU debut will be far more integral to Phase 5 and beyond than we first realized.
Deadpool 3 is set to hit theaters on September 6, 2024.
