Starting the list with a new mutant who is also the villain of this story, Emma Corrin will be seen portraying the role of Cassandra Nova. Being a twin sister of Professor Charles Xavier, the professor realized Nova’s potential while they were in the womb.

Trying to kill Cassandra Nova in the womb, the sister survives and is back with vengeance on her mind. This is the first time that Emma Corrin will be seen in the role of Cassandra Nova, and the world is surely excited.

In a still from the film, Cassandra Nova has made the gigantic decomposed head of Ant-Man her home. With a wide shot, there are several characters visible, and people were able to establish certain X-Men with their features.

Callisto, appearing in X-Men: The Last Stand, is an iconic character who developed a rivalry with Storm and was eventually killed by her. In the mentioned wide shot, the features of Callisto were visible, which marked her return to the MCU.

Portraying the role of a brainwashed mutant who is an assistant to William Stryker, Kelly Hu portrayed the role of Lady Deathstrike in the 2003 film X2. As per reports, Hu is all set to reprise her role in Deadpool & Wolverine.

She was injected with Adamantium by Wolverine, which was lethal for her, but it seems that she has somehow recovered and is in the film to either kill Wolverine or help the anti-heroes.

4) Azazel

Jason Flemyng portrayed the role of Azazel in X-Men: First Class back in 2011. With an intriguing storyline to his character, it has been confirmed that Flemyng is slated to reprise the role of Azazel in the upcoming Deadpool & Wolverine film.

5) Colin Farrell As Bullseye?

Although this one hasn’t been confirmed, it could be a very real possibility that Colin Farrell could appear in a cameo and reprise his role of Bullseye from the 2003 film Daredevil. The cameo could also be a marketing idea for the release of the upcoming MCU show, Daredevil: Born Again. And overall, it would be a pretty awesome thing to do.

Whatever the case may be, all we know is that Deadpool & Wolverine is going to be one heck of a film. With Shawn Levy as the director and Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman in lead roles, the MCU film is set for a release date of 26 July 2024 in theaters across the U.S.
