Marvel has made a few allusions to the Fox X-Males universe throughout the Marvel Cinematic Universe — the previous X-Males animated theme in Ms. Marvel, a Patrick Stewart cameo as Professor X in Physician Unusual within the Multiverse of Insanity — however the first full on MCU film for a Fox alum shall be subsequent yr’s Deadpool 3, which is shortly shaping as much as be a full-on return for an enormous chunk of the corporate’s previous Marvel solid.

In addition to the title character, performed by Ryan Reynolds, and Wolverine, performed by Hugh Jackman, the movie may even apparently characteristic the return of Jennifer Garner as Elektra, Marvel’s tortured murderer anti-hero.

That’s in line with The Hollywood Reporter, who trace of their report that there could also be extra returning Fox Marvel heroes within the movie…

Shawn Levy is within the director’s chair with the undertaking to be the primary film that can characteristic a personality, or on this case, two or three or extra, from the steady that after belonged to twentieth Century Fox.

The MCU already has its personal Elektra, Élodie Yung, who performed the function in Season 2 of Marvel’s Daredevil sequence on Netflix. The existence of a multiverse makes it simple sufficient to clarify a number of Elektras — though if Garner’s character goes to have greater than a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it-cameo, that might seemingly indicate that Deadpool 3 shall be set throughout the Fox X-Males universe (or some different beforehand unseen alternate dimension) and never the principle MCU. (Wow, that’s the nerdiest factor I ever wrote. Go me.)

Garner’s Elektra is routinely ranked among the many worst Marvel films ever made, and the Daredevil film she was in wasn’t too a lot better. However that wasn’t her fault, and it might be actually enjoyable to see her again because the character — particularly if Deadpool 3 goes to have a complete bunch of (farewell?) appearances by the massive names of the Fox Marvel Universe. Are you able to think about if Chris Evans’ Human Torch had a cameo? Or Nic Cage’s Ghost Rider confirmed up? May very well be wild.

Deadpool 3 is scheduled to open in theaters on Might 3, 2024.
