Hugh Jackman just made a major revelation about Deadpool 3.
When the X-Men star first confirmed his role in the film beside Ryan Reynolds, the audience went crazy with excitement to see the iconic duo of Logan and Deadpool share the screen. And ever since then, there has been an abundant flow of fan theories and speculation about Deadpool 3 and the potential appearance of various other MCU superheroes.
Up until now, there had been endless rumors of characters possibly using time travel in the upcoming movie, especially to visit other characters from the Fox franchise. But while the latter part still remains a mystery, Hugh Jackman seems to have confirmed that Deadpool 3 will indeed involve time traveling to a great extent.
Hugh Jackman Confirms Deadpool 3 Will Have Time Travel
It’s been almost three months since Hugh Jackman announced his reprisal as Logan in the third installment of the Deadpool franchise. Considering how the formidable mutant was seen to have met his tragic end in Logan (2017), fans were dying with curiosity to know just how the character would be revived in Shawn Levy’s Deadpool 3.
Although Jackman made it clear that they won’t be messing with the X-Men timelines in the film, he never gave a concrete explanation about any of it. So people resorted to the only plausible theory of using time travel to bring back Jackman’s metal-clawed mutant in Deadpool 3. But to fans’ relief, the Real Steel star has finally addressed the elephant in the room as he corroborated that Wolverine will indeed return with the help of a time-traveling device.
Talking about the Ryan Reynolds-led movie on Sirius XM, Jackman brushed upon the subject subtly enough to not blurt out any heavy spoilers, but conspicuously enough to reveal a major plot detail that everyone has been burning to know about.
“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.”
That certainly explains a lot. But now that the Van Helsing actor has confirmed time-traveling in Deadpool 3, the next big question in line is the role of the Time Variance Authority, yet another aspect that could be of great value to the movie’s plot.
Will the Time Variance Authority Appear in Deadpool 3?
A while ago, famous insider Daniel Richtman claimed that Owen Wilson’s Agent Mobius from Loki would reportedly have a role in Deadpool 3. Although the rumor hasn’t been verified yet, knowing how Logan and Wade Wilson will be jumping timelines, it wouldn’t be too shocking for the top-notch agent of the TVA to make an appearance in the movie.
The Time Variance Authority or TVA is a bureaucratic agency responsible for overseeing and managing all the alternate realities and timelines present in the MCU. And Mobius being one of the most valuable agents of this organization, holds immense power and authority.
Taking into consideration how Deadpool 3 will be exploring the Multiverse using time travel, the TVA could have a major part to play in the execution of the plot after all. Then again, nothing has been confirmed with regard to the same yet. But if Agent Mobius along with the TVA were to pop up in the film, it would certainly be a killer addition to the already amazing ensemble.
Deadpool 3 will premiere in cinemas on November 8, 2024.
