For the past ten years or so, Kevin Feige has guided Marvel Studios, leading the renowned superhero empire inspired by Marvel Comics. During his leadership, he has made an unforgettable impact on the film industry through the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), now under The Walt Disney Company.

The realization of Phase Three of the MCU was achieved with the release of Avengers: Infinity War (2018) and Avengers: Endgame (2019), marking a tremendous victory for the franchise. These movies evolved the superhero genre, solidifying its position in the entertainment world. The conclusion of this era also marked the conclusion of the initial three Phases of the MCU, collectively referred to as the Infinity Saga.

SPOILERS:

The events of Deadpool 3 take place after the Loki S2 finale. The TVA got word that the Kan gs are gathering and a new Multiversal War is about to start so they create an army of Multiversal heroes, mostly from dying worlds, to fight the Council of Kangs. Mr. Paradox is replacing Mobius (Mobius was going to be in it for awhile and could still have a cameo but they decided to just leave him out of this story. He’ll be back in full in the Avengers films) and is trying to recruit Wolverine. Deadpool who’s a prisoner at the TVA after messing with time hears about it and escape. His plan is to get Wolverine to come with him instead so they could become BFFs.

It’s clear that Marvel has definite plans for the character of Mobius, so fans of Owen Wilson’s TVA analyst likely have more to look forward to — it might take a few years to get there, however.
