Marvel Studios’ upcoming Deadpool 3 is reportedly bringing beloved characters from Fox’s X-Men and Fantastic Four. The announcement of the third installment of the franchise was made last year, with Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine returning to the screen.
Jackman revealed that a unique Wolverine arc is in the works, and the project is the actor’s first appearance in a long while after 2017’s Logan. After years of teasing a collaboration, Deadpool and Wolverine are finally sharing the screen in a much-awaited action-packed film.
Fox X-Men Characters Are Reportedly Set To Appear In Deadpool 3
Speaking with People, Hugh Jackman described his return as Wolverine and the excitement of finally bringing to life a comic book story that fans have requested for the longest time.
“When I keep thinking of me and Ryan, of Deadpool and Wolverine, which are classic comic-book rivals, there’s also a dynamic that I’ve never really got to do before as Wolverine. I just thought, ‘This is gonna be fun. Something I’ve never done before. I can’t wait.’”
Aside from Wolverine, the movie will also bring in characters from other Marvel teams. It has been announced that a reboot of the Fantastic Four franchise is in the works, and the characters are set to meet Deadpool, one way or another. But, they are not the only ones making an appearance.
Other Fox X-Men characters are also expected to appear in Deadpool 3. It may sound quite confusing because the Fox X-Men timeline is a bit incomprehensible, but Jackman may have revealed the strategy that Marvel will use to fit the pieces of the puzzle.
The actor spoke with Sirius XM and mentioned the word ‘timelines’:
“But all because of this device they have in the Marvel world of moving around timelines, now we can go back because, you know, it’s science. And so, I don’t have to screw with the Logan timeline, which was important to me, and I think probably to the fans too.”
Time travel is one of the many popular theories on the Internet, and now that the actor has confirmed the speculation, fans can only expect how intricate the story would be. Very little is known about the plot of Deadpool 3, but the studio, as well as fans, could clearly see that this massive crossover already spells victory.
