Surprisingly enough, Kevin Feige did confirm that Deadpool 3 would be set in the MCU even though the first two were made by 20th Century Fox Studios. Ever since then fans have been speculating on how Deadpool will connect to the MCU.
With rumors that the Merc with a mouth would be appearing as a cameo in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (2022), fans thought that Strange’s involvement in the Multiverse would bring Deadpool into the MCU, but it seems this is not the case.
Moth Culture reports that there is a rumor that Deadpool will end up with the TVA after killing his infamous variant from Wolverine: X-Men Origins (2009):
RUMOR: (Deadpool 3) After slaying Wade Wilson from X-Men Origins, Deadpool corrupts this timeline and is captured by the TVA to stand trial. The film ends with Deadpool reviving Vanessa and rescuing the X-Force. It’s a prequel to the post-credit scene in #MultiverseofMadness.

While this isn’t an official confirmation, it wouldn’t be too hard to introduce Deadpool through the TVA. Knowing that Doctor Strange 2 is cutting several cameos due to their short runtime, it’s likely that Deadpool’s introduction won’t even be made clear in the movie as the antihero may not make the final cut.
If Deadpool does appear in Doctor Strange 2, his cameo wouldn’t focus on how he is in the MCU, but rather tease a future project or be a funny MCU moment. Additionally, Deadpool 3 is in early development meaning that any details about the movie could easily change because the story isn’t finalized.
Knowing that Deadpool’s introduction is highly anticipated by fans, Marvel will make sure to keep any details under the wraps so it won’t be easy to learn what they are up to anytime soon. This report does make the most sense and it would allow a lot of funny moments to happen between Loki or Mobius (Owen Wilson) with Deadpool.
Hopefully, fans will get to learn more about what will happen to Deadpool soon, even though Reynolds plans to take an acting break before starring in the MCU movie. For all we know, Loki Season 2 could easily pave the road for the two characters to meet and make Deadpool 1 and 2 canon.
The MCU is just beginning to add more superhero teams into the Marvel universe because now, the Avengers need all the help they can get. It is only a matter of time before we see the Young Avengers, Illuminati, Defenders, Midnight Sons, X-Men, Fantastic Four, and the Thunderbolts enter the MCU.
Do you think Loki will introduce Deadpool instead of Doctor Strange 2?
Phase Four has started off with a lot of content for Marvel fans to look forward to in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. On Disney+ you can expect more episodes of Moon Knight on March 30, Ms. Marvel on June 8, and She-Hulk to debut this year. For movies, Doctor Strange In the Multiverse of Madness comes out on May 6, followed by Thor: Love and Thunder on July 8, and of course, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever on November 11.
