A lot of fans blew their collective lid when they said that Hugh Jackman would be reprising Wolverine for Deadpool 3, and while that news is big enough, a rumor has come out that suggests we’re going to be seeing some other Bryan Singer-era X-Men show up in the movie.
As per @CanWeGetToast on Twitter, Deadpool 3 is also said to be featuring Cyclops (James Marsden), Jean Grey (Famke Janssen), and Storm (Halle Berry). Here’s the post:
Take note, this is just a rumor for now, but with the alleged multiverse/time travelling plot of the movie, it definitely makes sense for other characters in Wolverine’s timeline to appear—even if it’s just for a cameo.
So far, other reported appearances in the film include several Deadpool movie vets including Dopinder (Karan Soni), Blind Al (Leslie Uggams), Vanessa (Morena Baccarin), Colossus (Stefan Kapicic), Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hidelbrand), and Yukio (Shioli Kutsuna). They’re even bringing back Peter from the X-Force (Rob Delaney).
Personally, I’m just waiting for confirmation for Cable (Josh Brolin), Domino (Zazie Beetz), and Firefist (Julian Dennison). The first two because I thought they were great casting; and the Firefist because the entire plot point of the last Deadpool movie was all about Wade becoming his adopted father (besides Dennison is also good fun whenever he’s onscreen).
Hopefully all these rumors will be confirmed before the end of the year. Catch Deadpool 3 in theaters when it comes out on Nov. 8, 2024.
