Deadpool 3 is rounding out its cast and two of the Deadpool series mainstays are returning for Wade Wilson’s debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Ryan Reynolds has been constantly giving updates about the upcoming film. The actor recently announced that fan-favorite characters Dopinder and Blind Al, played by Karan Soni and Leslie Uggams respectively, are returning for a third movie.
A new Deadline report then revealed that Morena Baccarin and Stefan Kapicic are returning to the Deadpool film series. Baccarin plays Wade Wilson’s wife Vanessa while Kapicic reprises his role as the X-Men member Colossus. Both characters were present in the previous two films.
The return of Vanessa confirms theories that the third film involves time travel. There has been speculation that Deadpool would cause Nexus events and shake up the multiverse due to his time-traveling antics.
It can be recalled that Wilson traveled back in time to save his wife Vanessa after the latter was killed during an attack on the couple’s home. Deadpool also messed with history, attempting to assassinate Adolf Hitler.
Deadpool 3 will bring Hugh Jackman back, who is reprising his X-Men character Wolverine. Fans will surely be excited to see Colossus join Wolverine as X-Men debuting in the MCU. Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige has teased that Deadpool 3 brings the X-Men closer to being part of the MCU.
Jackman previously revealed that his reason for returning to the role of Wolverine was largely because Marvel has time travel. Deadpool 3 does not alter the events of Logan, which the actor says is important to him.
Mobius and the TVA work behind the scenes to keep the sacred timeline from being disrupted. Deadpool’s time-traveling shenanigans may have prompted the TVA to go after him as he may potentially cause the collapse of the sacred timeline.
Zazie Beetz, who plays Domino in Deadpool 2, is reportedly returning in the upcoming movie. However, the actor remains mum on her return and the casting has not been officially confirmed.
"Unfortunately, I plead the fifth," Beetz said in an interview with Comicbook.com. "I'm sorry."
Fans are also hoping for the return of Negasonic Teenage Warhead and Yukio from the second movie played by Brianna Hildebrand and Shioli Kutsuna respectively. The two were responsible for handing Deadpool the time travel device which kicks off the plot of the third movie. It would also be possible for Josh Brolin's Cable to return given that he doesn't have the time-traveling device.
Deadpool 3 is coming to theaters on November 8, 2024.
