According to the most recent reports swirling around about multiple X-Men variants, it seems that the third installment of the Deadpool movie series just might be able to do the very thing with Sir Ian McKellen and Michael Fassbender that previous X-Men films have been unable to do.

Fans already know from all the leaked set pictures from Deadpool 3 that Hugh Jackman‘s Wolverine won’t be the only mutant returning to the big screen in Ryan Reynolds’ upcoming film.

But while these previously included two main antagonists from the villain’s panel in the original X-Men movie, i.e. Sabretooth and Toad, recent reports have been hinting that they might not be the only ones.

As per the newest reports shared by @Crytic4KQual on X, there just might be multiple different mutants from many different X-Men movies from the film series appearing in the next Deadpool installment.

Besides characters from X-Men (2000), as was previously hinted, these might also include mutants from the second and fifth movies of the X-Men film series, i.e. X2 (2003) and X-Men: First Class (2011). Further reports claim some other of them could come as variants.

On the one hand, while the former part of the report from the X account had fans hoping to see some of their favorite characters from the original X-Men movies, the latter part, on the other, ignited speculation about the return of the original Magneto mutant, i.e. Sir Ian McKellen‘s Erik Lehnsherr.

This also gave rise to one major question: Could Deadpool 3 actually make the two Magnetos, i.e. Michael Fassbender‘s reboot one and Sir McKellen’s one from the original film series, meet? Though it hasn’t been confirmed yet, this report has indirectly hinted at the possibility of the event.

Moreover, since the MCU is currently in its Multiverse Saga, it won’t really be out of the ordinary if they are truly planning to bring Sir McKellen back as a variant. And if he does come back, the sight of his Magneto meeting Fassbender’s would frankly be a mind-blowing one.
