We have a first clue to confirm the return of one of the characters from the first two films of Deadpool also in the third: it seems that it is Leslie Uggams, who she plays Blind Al, Wade Wilson / Deadpool’s own blind roommate. The announcement is not official, but the exchange of messages on Twitter that took place a couple of days ago between Uggams and Ryan Reynolds seems to indicate it quite clearly – especially considering the light-hearted and “meta” spirit of both the two films, and the superhero in general, both of Ryan Reynolds himself. If you want to form an opinion:
Deadpool 3, or whatever it will be called the next film of the most irreverent superhero in the Marvel world, will be particularly important because it should “transfer” the character in the Marvel Cinematic Universewhile so far it has been part of a different universe / franchise, that of Fox – in which, moreover, the films of the X-Men and the Fantastic 4 have also been released. Disney has already bought Fox a few years ago now, and according to rumors and statements more or less official the mechanisms have already been in motion for a long time to integrate the huge pool of characters and stories, which have had mixed fortunes and have recently lost a bit of polish, with the already extremely vast one of Avengers and company.
For now, not much is known about the film, but it is true that with the concept of multiverse now cleared of customs (between What If …?, Spider-Man – A New Universe, Spider-Man: No Way Home and the upcoming Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness) it is at this point “easy” to justify the arrival of any superhero from any parallel universe. It is of course already confirmed that Reynolds will reprise the role of Deadpool – who else, for that matter – but for all the other characters the question mark remains. Will they be the same ones we’ve come to like or will there be parallel versions – maybe with different actors?
Unfortunately we will have to wait quite a while for the definitive answers: filming is expected to begin later this year and the film is expected to hit theaters in 2023, probably towards the end. For the moment we only know that the director will be Shawn Levy, who collaborated with Reynolds just recently with The Adam Project for Netflix, and that it will be forbidden to minors under 17 like the two previous chapters.
