Deadpool 3 shot up to everyone’s must-watch list the moment it was revealed that they were including Hugh Jackman in the cast. The actor may have said farewell to the character of Wolverine in Logan, but he finally gets the chance to unite with Ryan Reynolds. It also is fitting given his way of destroying the fourth wall and ongoing jokes about Jackman throughout his first two entries.
Now, a new casting call courtesy of Daniel Richtmann has been making the rounds, which includes two new additions to the cast. Very little is known about the film outside of the return of Jackman, but it does seem like they are seeking to add a female villain, who’ll face off against both in the upcoming film. Marvel Studios is looking for someone in the age range of 30 to 50 for the role.
When the first teaser arrived online, there was a short shot of Reynolds in costume on the toilet. What stood out (don’t go there) was that he’s reading a comic that features an iconic X-Men villain in the form of Danger. She was the physical embodiment of the training room known as the Danger Room, which became a massive threat to the mutants. With this casting, that might be another hint at Danger potentially being added to the sequel.
There’s also a description for a BIPOC male lead they are looking to add. It’s uncertain what role he might have, but perhaps it’ll connect to another rumor for the addition of Owen Wilson’s Mobius to the Deadpool sequel. He might not be the only TVA agent that ends up stuck with an unlikely duo traveling through the multiverse.
