The Merc with a Mouth is back, and he’s going to change the Marvel Cinematic Universe forever.
The first teaser of the new film about Deadpool launched during the 2024 Super Bowl. The spot revealed the film’s final premiere date, the plot outline and the blockbuster’s official title. It also teased the return of Wolverine, AKA Logan.
Deadpool was originally part of the X-Men universe, the rights of which were held by 20th Century Fox. However, in 2019, The Walt Disney Company purchased the studio. The mutants were introduced to the world in Ms. Marvel and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and Deadpool thus became part of the MCU.
But what does this mean for the third film about his adventures, and when will Wade Wilson be back in cinemas? You can find out in our article.
Deadpool 3 official title
The film’s new title is Deadpool & Wolverine, and it will officially introduce Wade Wilson to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The story will be part of Phase Five of the MCU.
Deadpool 3 release date
Deadpool & Wolverine will debut in cinemas on Friday, 26 July 2024.
The release date of the third Deadpool film has changed more than once. Initially, it was set to hit cinemas on 6 September 2024. Later, the date was changed to 8 November 2024 and then pushed forward to 4 May 2024.
Deadpool 3 plot
Thanks to the first teaser, we know that the Time Variance Authority (TVA), the agency that controls timelines in the multiverse, will play an essential role in the new film. The organisation is well-known to fans of the Loki series, and all indications are that Deadpool will also make a closer acquaintance with the Authority.
The Merc with a Mouth will get a chance to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe and will surely use that invitation. In the teaser, Wade calls himself the Messiah and Marvel Jesus, and is fascinated by the idea of teaming up with the Avengers squad.
With Deadpool being a part of the MCU, we may see cameos from different superheroes. So far, the appearance of one beloved hero has been confirmed: Huge Jackman’s Wolverine.
Although the film Logan (2017) concluded the adventures of the mutant, the concept of the multiverse allows filmmakers to bring back characters in alternative timelines. Wolverine in Deadpool 3 is likely to be another incarnation of the original hero. This seems to be confirmed by Ryan Reynolds himself, who told ET Canada the following:
And what we pitched him was enough of a divergence from the character that he knows and the character that he’s left behind, that it gives him something completely new to play and something that he’s really excited to do.
For now, it is unknown under what circumstances Deadpool will meet Wolverine. Still, we assume that their interaction will be intense and full of raunchy humour.
Deadpool 3 cast
Ryan Reynolds will return to the role of Deadpool, while Hugh Jackman will star as Wolverine. His appearance was announced by the actors themselves:
We could expect the following cast members to reprise their roles:
- Leslie Uggams – Blind Al
- Karan Soni – Dopinder
- Morena Baccarin – Vanessa
- Stefan Kapicic – Colossus
- Brianna Hildebrand – Negasonic Teenage Warhead
- Shioli Kutsuna – Yukio
- Rob Delaney – Peter
Zazie Beetz, who played the role of Domino and Josh Brolin, aka Cable, won’t appear in the new film.
Emma Corrin, best known for her role in the Netflix series The Crown, is set to play the story’s villain. Matthew MacFadyen, who won an Emmy Award for his performance as Tom in HBO’s Succession, will also appear in the movie, as the TVA agent called Paradox.
Interestingly, Deadpool 3 will feature Jennifer Garner, who will once again star as Elektra Natchios. The actress already played the superheroine in the poorly received 2003 film.
There are also been some rumours that Deadpool 3 will feature Halle Berry as Storm, Liev Schreiber as Sabretooth, and Channing Tatum as Gambit. Daniel Radcliffe is also heavily rumoured to appear as another variant of Wolverine.
