It looks like we’re slowly getting more and more castings from the upcoming third Deadpool film. Deadpool 3 will see the return of Ryan Reynolds in the role of the Merc with a Mouth, but most notably also see Hugh Jackman once again reprise the role of Wolverine. While there’s no detail in what part of the MCU’s newly established multiverse this takes place in, it seems at least one casting addition has made its way online.
Fresh off of the final season of the hit HBO series Succession, it seems that Matthew Macfadyen has decided to join the ever-growing world of superheroes. There’s no word on who exactly he might be playing, but it definitely is a big get given he won a BAFTA for best-supporting actor in a Drama. We’ll have to see if he ends up playing someone that wears a cape or might even be part of the X-Men, who might have a role in the upcoming project.
The film will be the first produced by Marvel Studios with Shawn Levy of Stranger Things fame taking over directing duties. The script was originally written by Bob Burger‘s Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Logelin. Though the script was rewritten by former Deadpool writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese. So, we can expect a similar humor that made the first two entries so unique. Hopefully, it also carries over the heart that gave us some of the strongest moments in Deadpool’s journey.
