The Marvel fans have a lot of hope for Deadpool 3 to revive the fans’ faith in the universe. The MCU is currently going through several troubles and is in urgent need of a savior. One of the biggest problems in the Kevin Feige camp right now is Jonathan Majors’ Kang. If a new theory is to be believed, then the Ryan Reynolds movie can solve this.

This came straight out of the coven of fan theories, rumors, and everything strange- Reddit. According to a popular Reddit theory, Deadpool 3 can see Ryan Reynolds, Hugh Jackman, and the team go after a Kang variant or several Kang variants and give a proper direction to the Multiverse Saga to get rid of the Jonathan Majors problem.

Following the release of Avengers: Endgame, there have been only a handful of Marvel projects that turned out to be impressive. Be it the Disney+ segment or the area of movies, the MCU has given out numerous average and mediocre projects. They even failed to set up their Big Bad on the lines of Thanos. Kang has been largely disappointing and didn’t seem like such a threat in the MCU.

According to a new Reddit theory, the Ryan Reynolds movie can solve this mess. The reports have already stated that the TVA will form a major element of Deadpool 3’s story. Rumors and leaked set photos also suggest that the movie would feature a crossover of several old characters, especially from 20th Century Fox’s Marvel Universe.

This new theory suggests that in the upcoming movie, TVA will form a Suicide Squad-esque team comprised of variants of several superheroes led by Deadpool and Hugh Jackman‘s Wolverine to go against a Kang Variant. Some fans are also of the notion that the Shawn Levy directorial can be the best opportunity to recast Kang or even write off the character from the MCU.


At the end of Loki Season 2, we spotted TVA on a mission to take care of all the Kang Variants in the Multiverse. This can lead directly to the events of Deadpool 3. Additionally, it can even pit the heroes against the Council of Kangs we were shown in the post-credits scene of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.

How can Deadpool 3 omit the Kangs from the MCU?

Kang was set up to be the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s new Big Bad after Thanos in their Multiverse Saga. Sadly, the MCU turned out to be highly unlucky with the whole Multiversal concept and only certain few projects were successful in generating the hype around the concept. On the other hand, Kang the Conqueror also failed to generate any interest in his character.


The Jonathan Majors character was written in such a way, that even Ant-Man could defeat him in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Now with Majors in prison and the character’s future in uncertainty, Deadpool 3 can very well pit the superheroes against the Council of Kangs and can have them permanently gone from the MCU.

Moreover, with the presence of R-rating freedom, the MCU can create an impressive and violently humorous end-battle sequence. If these theories are to be believed, then Deadpool 3 can not only recast Kang but can also permanently give him a send-off if the MCU plans for someone else like Doctor Doom to be introduced as the new Big Bad.


Nevertheless, as much as the possibility of Doctor Doom in Avengers: Secret Wars can excite the fans, it can backfire as well. It is to be noted that we are midway in the Multiverse Saga and Doom is a villain who needs to be fleshed out properly before introduction. So it will be exciting to see if Deadpool 3 can set the MCU into a new course of action.

Deadpool 3 is set to be released on July 26, 2024.
