Owen Wilson, who played the role of the agent of the Time Variance Authority in the first season of Michael Waldron’s Disney+ series, Loki, is reportedly going to appear in the upcoming MCU film, Deadpool 3 as Mobius.
With Hugh Jackman already set to reprise his role as Logan, aka, the Wolverine, in the movie beside Ryan Reynolds, this new rumor about Mobius’ feature has led to even more anticipation with regard to Deadpool 3.
Initially, Mobius was presumed dead in the fourth episode of Loki season 1, but fans were later relieved to know that the detective didn’t actually die and would, in fact, be returning for the show’s second season in 2023.
Agent Mobius is rumored to be in Deadpool 3
According to a Twitter account named DeadpoolUpdate, Marvel fans will get to see Owen Wilson as Mobius in the third installment of Deadpool which is set to release in 2024. Although Wilson’s appearance in the film hasn’t been officially confirmed yet, rumors claim that he will be playing a rather important role in the movie.

Wilson’s Mobius is the meticulous bureaucrat who happens to be a valuable agent of the Time Variance Authority in Loki, the superhero fiction series starring Tom Hiddleston.
Fans were delivered with quite the blow when Ravonna Renslayer ordered the TVA agents to prune Agent Mobius, implying it to be the end of Wilson’s character in season 1 itself. However, it was later clarified that Mobius is indeed alive when his return was confirmed in Loki season 2.
Will Wolverine and Deadpool jump timelines in the new film?
Though nothing about Wilson’s reprisal as Mobius in Deadpool 3 is official yet, if he were to feature in the film, then it might just bear a significant outcome for the characters of Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds.
Previously when Reynolds and Jackman announced Wolverine’s comeback to Shawn Levy’s Deadpool 3, they also mentioned that the death of Jackman’s character in the 2017 film Logan, is a “totally separate” aspect that they intended to keep distinguished from their upcoming movie.
Besides that, now that both Logan and Wade Wilson are going to be exploring a new universe in the film, it does make sense for Mobius to have a vital role as well. Especially given the fact that Loki’s first season ended with the multiverse getting splintered into various timelines and universes, Wilson’s character could very well claim a role in Deadpool 3.
So far, the film’s cast has only been revealed to have Ryan Reynolds, Hugh Jackman, and Leslie Uggams who is set to play the role of Blind Al. And if Owen Wilson does end up taking a place amongst them, he would certainly be a great addition to the crew.
Deadpool 3 is scheduled to release on November 8, 2024.
