Shawn Levy’s third installment in the Deadpool franchise is currently surrounded by tons of rumors and speculations about how Ryan Reynolds is planning on visiting plenty of characters from the Fox universe. Seeing how Hugh Jackman will be reclaiming his role as the X-Men mutant Logan, aka, Wolverine, the possibility of Deadpool 3 bringing back more such surprise characters isn’t completely lost.

Recently, Culture Spider, a popular reporter on all things Marvel, shared an interesting piece of information about Deadpool 3 via Twitter, seemingly confirming Chris Evans‘ comeback as Johnny Storm, aka, the Human Torch. This rumor comes just a couple of weeks after the Fantastic Four ensemble was allegedly said to be making an epic entry in the movie.

Now that Marvel is in the works to reboot the Fantastic Four franchise and introduce the superhero team into the MCU, its characters could very well be embedded in the Multiversal storyline starting with Levy’s Deadpool 3.

However, the following rumors are yet to be confirmed by Marvel Studios.

Could Chris Evans’ Human Torch Be A Part of Deadpool 3

This is not the first time talks about this crossover are being hinted at.

Famous insider Daniel Richtman claimed that Deadpool 3 will be introducing Evans’ Human Torch in the movie with Reynolds’ disfigured mercenary utilizing the time-traveling machine of Nathan Summers, aka Cabel to revisit the old Fox franchises in the MCU.

Whether Johnny Storm could be inculcated in the film as one of the major characters or could have a cameo instead cannot be said as of right now. But it would certainly be entertaining to see Evans’ superhero share the screen with Reynolds’ rebellious anti-hero. An encounter between Deadpool and the Fantastic Four squad could also set up the base for the latter’s MCU film which is scheduled to release in 2025.

Although these rumors have not yet been verified by either the superhero franchise or the actors portraying the characters, one thing is for sure that fans are definitely in for some major surprises with regard to Deadpool 3. 

Deadpool 3 will hit cinemas on November 8, 2023.
