The scoops never stop coming in for Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman’s Deadpool & Wolverine. Several scoopers have reported the appearance of one crucial character from the original X-Men movies, specifically from Logan. It is reported that Dafne Keen’s Laura Kinney / X-23 will appear in the film alongside a bunch of other superheroes to fight Cassandra Nova’s league of supervillains. Keen herself has hinted at her potential role in the film in a recent interview.

Deadpool & Wolverine is expected to make several callbacks to Fox’s X-Men characters, with rumors spreading that many of these characters will appear in the film. One such character who was speculated to appear in the film was Dafne Keen‘s X-23. The actress revealed on multiple occasions, including an interview with Looper, that she would jump at the chance to reprise her role in the MCU (via ComicBook.com).


However, when she recently appeared in an interview with the Brazilian site Omelete, she gave an answer that made fans confirm that she was in the movie. When asked if she would be returning alongside Hugh Jackman in Deadpool 3, Keen shared that she couldn’t wait. She then went on to share that the trailer looked incredible and that she was looking forward to seeing the film. Here’s what she had to say (via @DeadpoolUpdate):

“I mean…I can’t wait. The trailer looked incredible! This is all really crazy and I’m looking forward to seeing it.”

Fans could say from her confusing answer that she was definitely appearing in the film. One fan shared that they were ready to see her in action in the film. Another fan commented that the fandom needed her back as X-23. One fan shared that the His Dark Materials actress’ appearance would be totally awesome, while another was happy for her excitement for X-Men to return to the screen. Some fan reactions read:



Marvel scooper @MyTimeToShineH reported earlier this week that Channing Tatum’s Gambit will appear in the film after years of speculation about him playing the character in Fox’s X-Men movies. The scooper also added that Jennifer Garner‘s Elektra and Dafne Keen’s X-23 would also appear in the film (via Murphy’s Multiverse).

Another Scooper Predicted The Possible Storyline Involving Dafne Keen and Hugh Jackman

Marvel scooper @CanWeGetToast also reported that Dafne Keen will appear in the film. The scooper had an interesting theory about the possible interaction between her character X-23 and Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine. The theory stated Laura Kinney would explain what happened to Logan in her timeline to the Wolverine variant in Deadpool 3. Fox’s Logan’s sacrifice will potentially make a huge impact on this Logan.


It would be a fitting narrative for Deadpool & Wolverine that seeks not to ruin the beautiful ending given to the character in James Mangold’s Logan. The story of the other Logan’s sacrifice could finally push this Logan to step up and save the multiverse along with Ryan Reynolds‘ Wade Wilson.

Deadpool & Wolverine is scheduled to be released in theaters on July 26, 2024.
