The first Deadpool movie had a clear connection with Marvel Cinematic Universe, but the next one, Deadpool 3, can revisit as a part of a newly combined franchise.
Deadpool, an American superhero film released in 2016, was directed by Tim Miller. It is based on a Marvel Comics character with the same name, Deadpool. The cast includes Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, Morena Baccarin as Vanessa, Ed Skrein as Francis Freeman/ Ajax, T.J. Miller as Weasel, Gina Carano as Angel Dust, Stefan Kapičić voicing Colossus, and Brianna Hilderbrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead.
The film Deadpool starts with the character Wade Wilson who is a mercenary, when he meets with the love of his life, Vanessa, a prostitute. They both fell deeply in love with each other, and eventually, Wade prosed Vanessa to marry him. Not long after Vanessa agreed, Wade was diagnosed with terminal cancer. A mysterious recruiter approaches Wade and tells him that his organization can cure his cancer. Wade leaves Vanessa without any warning and enters the experimental journey of curing his illness. There he was brutally experimented on, and in the end, his cancer was cured, but his body had burnt-like scars all over it. This is how the journey of Wade Wilson to Deadpool started.
Deadpool’s theatrical release involved an action sequence set on a decommissioned S.H.I.E.L.D Helicarrier; however, the movie didn’t give much attention to the vehicle, which was popular in MCU’s Avengers series. The first of the Deadpool series did include a major MCU Easter egg and a deleted scene that had a famous location of Marvel which appeared in Captain America: Civil War. As the Marvel Cinematic Universe is putting many of the superheroes together via phase four, Deadpool 3 would ideally be the perfect opportunity for the superhero to be added to MCU officially.
Deadpool 3 MCU
Wade Wilson, aka Deadpool, is going to be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the upcoming installment, Deadpool 3. The Deadpool 3 cast, which is confirmed, includes Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, James McAvoy, and Matt Damon. The premiere’s official teaser has been released, which says, “Coming Not So Soon.” The official Deadpool 3 release date hasn’t been announced yet.
It is possible that The Raft and/or Ajax might be referenced in Deadpool 3, as the first one had a deleted scene featuring The Raft, which was connected to MCU. The potential of MCU to adapt Thunderbolts can include Deadpool easily. As in Deadpool 2, released in May 2018, Deadpool had an experience as a team member of superpowered beings, and the Thunderbolts include antiheroes and supervillains.
Although Marvel Studios haven’t officially confirmed the inclusion of Thunderbolts, however, the recent events can build one up. As in the series Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Contessa Valentina Allegra de Fontaine, played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus, appeared, and in the Black Widow movie, John Walker and Yelena Belova, both the characters appeared. These events could gradually lead to a reimagined version of the Thunderbolts team in MCU, for which the ideal character would be Wade Wilson.
The character Deadpool definitely has the highest body count with only two movies so far, but we can’t describe him as entirely immoral. In both the premieres, Deadpool was shown to be motivated by money, but in particular, in the second one, he made the team to prevent a young mutant from becoming a supervillain, not for money.
The last two premieres, Deadpool and Deadpool 2 are not part of MCU; however, Deadpool 3 can feature Wade Wilson entering the franchise because of incursion. The Deadpool 3 would be amazing, and the connection of MCU will open infinite possibilities for Wade Wilson in the future.
