As (supposed) Deadpool 3 plot details continue to circulate online, we've rounded up a few of the juicier rumors relating to everyone's favorite mutant berserker, Wolverine.
A previous report claimed that the Merc With a Mouth (Ryan Reynolds) is going to seek out Logan Variants over the course of the movie before coming to the realization that nobody can "replace Hugh Jackman," but over the course of this search, we may just catch a glimpse of the actor who will ultimately step in to the role as the Marvel Cinematic Universe's new Wolverine.
It doesn't sound like anything is going to be anything close to a blatant reveal, but according to KC Walsh, we will have a "good idea" of who the MCU's Logan is going to be by the end of the threequel.
Could it be Karl Urban, perhaps?
Best not to read too much into this one, but GFR is reporting that The Boys star will appear in Deadpool 3 as a Wolverine Variant. Urban is often fan-cast in the role, just like Daniel Radcliffe (who is also rumored to show up), so we wouldn't be surprised if there was some truth to this. Him being introduced as the MCU's Logan is probably less likely, however.
Finally, MTTSH has shared some possible details on the very end/final shot of the film, so if you don't want an idea of how Wade Wilson's latest adventure concludes, here's your final spoiler warning.
Deadpool 3 is expected to be similar to The Flash when it comes to its Multiverse elements, with Wilson and Wolverine dropping in on various alternate realities and timelines. It sounds like a lot of other cameos have been lined up, including several X-Men characters (Storm, Cyclops, and Jean Grey among them), and possibly even Channing Tatum and Taylor Kitsch as different Variants of Gambit.
A recent rumor claimed that Liev Schreiber is set to reprise his X-Men Origins: Wolverine role as Victor Creed/Sabertooth. Variants of the Merc With a Mouth are also rumored to appear, including Dogpool, Kidpool, Lady Deadpool, and more.
The one major return that has been confirmed by the trades is Jennifer Garner as Elektra, but it seems speculation that Ben Affleck would be joining her as Daredevil was unfounded.
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.
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 report 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.
Shawn Levy is directing Deadpool 3, which is set to hit theaters on September 6, 2024.
