Some time ago, Marvel Studios unveiled a significant development regarding the eagerly awaited third installment in the Deadpool film series, appropriately titled Deadpool 3. The upcoming movie, helmed by director Shawn Levy, introduces a surprising twist as it is slated to become part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), departing from its prior placement in the X-Men Universe, which was formerly under 20th Century Fox (now 20th Century Studios), currently owned by The Walt Disney Company.

Ryan Reynolds (Free Guy), renowned for portraying the beloved character Deadpool/Wade Wilson in the Fox X-Men Universe, officially shared the exhilarating news. He made this revelation in tandem with his longtime rival, Hugh Jackman, famous for his iconic depiction of Wolverine/Logan/James Howlett in the X-Men Universe. This announcement confirmed the thrilling prospect that both of these iconic superhero personas would finally be making their highly awaited debut in the central Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

What Is Deadpool All About?

The storyline of the inaugural film in the series, Deadpool (2016), revolves around Wade Wilson, a mercenary diagnosed with terminal cancer. In a desperate attempt to save his life, he undergoes an experimental procedure that triggers a dormant mutation, resulting in constant cell regeneration and granting him virtual immortality — which, unfortunately, also subjects Deadpool to constant agony.

Morena Baccarin assumes the role of Vanessa, Wade Wilson’s deceased fiancée, TJ Miller portrays Weasel, and Brianna Hildebrand embodies Negasonic Teenage Warhead from the X-Men. Tim Miller directed the first Deadpool film, while Shawn Levy, who is also slated to direct Deadpool 3 for Disney, helmed Deadpool 2 (2018).

The Deadpool series has experienced remarkable success, accumulating a total global box office revenue exceeding $1.5 billion, solidifying its position as one of the most profitable R-rated film franchises in cinematic history.

Deadpool 3‘s Plot: Spoiled By Its Stars

Known Hollywood insider MyTimeToShineHello has begun hinting at the future plot of Deadpool 3 — by revealing that leads Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman have in fact been spoiling the plot of the film since its very first announcement.

The insider quote tweeted a GIF of the actors in their initial announcement video depicting Reynolds stabbing Jackman in the gut, Jackman retaliating and punching Reynolds in the head, and Reynolds slumping over “dead” before  Jackman continually punches him and he “wakes back up again”:

Look carefully. They’re actually spoiling the movie

This could very well indicate that in the film, Reynolds’ Deadpool meets his demise — before being revived again somehow. He does have a similar healing factor to Wolverine, after all.

Previous reports have reported that several major X-Men stars are slated to return to join the new MCU film (including Channing Tatum), in a clear attempt to re-familiarize current Marvel audiences with the Fox Universe X-Men. Deadpool fans have also been getting excited over the planned return of Jennifer Garner’s Elektra in Deadpool 3 — a move that was more or less confirmed since Ben Affleck was reportedly spotted on the set of the third Deadpool film earlier this year — indicating his iteration of the Daredevil/Matt Murdock character from Marvel’s 2003 Daredevil would also be set to return. Currently, singer-songwriter Taylor Swift is also rumored to star, potentially as the hero Dazzler.
