It’s no mystery that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been going on a slump since the release of Avengers: Endgame, and after the box office underperformance of The Marvels, everyone is just wondering what will bring success back to Marvel Studios.
What’s interesting is, Matthew Vaughn, the director behind X-Men: First Class and the Kingsman franchise, thinks that the upcoming Deadpool movie from Shawn Levy is going to be the very project that will restore a bit of fire to the MCU. Talking to BroBible.com, Vaughn shares:
“The few snippets that I know about Deadpool vs. Wolverine — or Wolverine vs. Deadpool, I’m sure that argument between Ryan and Hugh is happening as we speak — are unbelievable. That’s going to be the jolt… the Marvel universe is about to have a jolt of them and it’s going to bring that body back to life. I think Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman are about to save the whole Marvel universe.”
We don’t know exactly what to expect with Deadpool 3, but it is rumored that the movie will neatly close the Marvel Fox cinematic universe after the disappointing reception of X-Men: Dark Phoenix. Not only are we expecting to see Hugh Jackman come back as Logan, but the movie is also said to be bringing back pre-MCU Marvel characters like Elektra (Jennifer Garner) and maybe someone from the first Fantastic Four movies (fingers crossed for Chris Evans’ Human Torch returning).
With the film having had to delay shooting thanks to the SAG-AFTRA Strike, everyone is hopeful that Deadpool 3 will manage to make its July deadline this year. Hopefully we get a trailer soon.
Deadpool 3 is set to come out in theaters on July 26.
