How will Deadpool join the MCU? Every theory

dead Pool finally joins the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Dead Pool 3, and since the details of his arrival in this connected universe have not been revealed, there are a few theories as to how the Merc with a Mouth will become part of the MCU – and here are each of them. Deadpool has become one of Marvel Comics’ most popular and beloved antiheroes. So there was a lot of anticipation surrounding her first appearance on the big screen, but sadly, it didn’t go down well.

Wade Wilson/Deadpool made his first appearance on the big screen in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, where he was played by Ryan Reynolds, but the way he was portrayed was heavily criticized and mocked endlessly. Fortunately, Wade got another chance years later in his own movie, simply titled dead Poolwhich brought back Ryan Reynolds to tell the origin story of the chaotic antihero who often breaks the fourth wall. dead Pool was a critical and commercial success thanks to its sense of humour, comic book fidelity and Reynolds’ performance, breaking numerous records and making way for an equally successful sequel two years later, simply titled Deadpool 2.

Deadpool 2 introduced Cable (Josh Brolin), Russell Collins (Julian Dennison) and Domino (Zazie Beets), who accompanied and battled Deadpool in a story that included time travel, revenge and a team called X-Force which, unfortunately , could not fulfill its mission. A sequel was reportedly in development in 2016, but after the Disney/Fox merger, all X-Men movies were canceled, including Dead Pool 3. However, the mutants and Mr. Pool are now part of the MCU, and Dead Pool 3 is now in development at Disney, with Shawn Levy directing. Of course, the biggest questions now are how Deadpool will fit into the MCU, and there are already various theories about how Deadpool will join the MCU without him and his stories feeling disconnected.

Deadpool will be caught by VAT

Deadpool theory brings Wade Wilson to the MCU

One of the biggest theories about how Deadpool will join the MCU involves Lokiof TVA and connects to the hilarious mid-credits scenes of Deadpool 2. As mentioned above, Deadpool 2 introduced time travel through Cable, a cybernetic soldier from the future who traveled back in time to kill Russell. However, Deadpool’s plan to protect Russell backfired and the young mutant formed a partnership with Juggernaut to kill the abusive headmaster of the orphanage he was living in. This led to Deadpool and Cable teaming up to stop Russell, with Deadpool sacrificing himself, but Cable decided to use the last charge from his time travel device to go back a few minutes and save Deadpool, even if it meant not not be able to return to the future with his family. In Deadpool 2In the mid-credits sequence, Negasonic Teenage Warhead and Yukio repair Cable’s time travel device for Deadpool, who uses it to go back in time and save his girlfriend, Vanessa (Morena Baccarin), kill her. X-Men Origins: Wolverine version, and Ryan Reynolds after he finished reading the script for The Green Lantern.

Now, the MCU’s Phase 4 has dealt with the multiverse and its many dangers and branches, and the TV series Loki introduced the Time Variance Authority (TVA), an organization located outside of space and time and tasked with preserving the Sacred Timeline by preventing branching timelines from being created through “Nexus Events”. Loki was captured by the TVA and imprisoned for escaping with the Tessaract in Avengers: Endgame and create a new branch in the timeline, and after messing up so many events at the end of Deadpool 2, TVA could come after him, especially now that it’s run by Kang the Conqueror (Jonathan Majors). Deadpool could then get away with it or partner with the TVA, but either way, he’d be brought into the MCU through that organization.

Cable’s Time Travel Device Is Tied To The Avengers

Cable's gruesome death would be hilarious in Deadpool 3.

Another way to tie Deadpool’s previous adventures to the MCU is through Cable and his time travel device. Deadpool 2 did not explore Cable’s backstory and only shared important details about his life, family, and why he wanted to kill Russell. This leaves the door open for different theories about the origin of his time travel device, and one of them connects him to the Avengers and the Time Heist in Avengers: Endgame. The theory, posted on Reddit, suggests that in the future, Cable discovered the Avengers’ time travel device buried under what was once the Avengers compound, which was destroyed in Avengers: Endgame when Thanos and his armies arrived. Cable then used his technology and modified the bracelet with his own technology so that he could go back in time without the need for special suits. The theory is supported by the similarities between the bracelets used by the Avengers for the Time Heist and the one used by Cable in Deadpool 2. This, of course, would also mean that Deadpool has always been a part of the MCU, which can make for some very Deadpool-like jokes.

In addition to time travel, the MCU also explores the multiverse and the many dangers and chaos it can unleash. Loki, Spider-Man: No Coming Homeand Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness explored the MCU’s multiverse in different ways, and this might be the best way to bring Deadpool into the MCU. Deadpool’s journey through time and space in the mid-credits scene of Deadpool 2 might leave him stranded in a different universe (after all, as seen with Cable, the device gives him limited travel), this is the MCU. Dead Pool 3 could see the Merc with a Mouth trying his best to adapt to a whole new world with superheroes and villains unfamiliar to him. Some theories around this idea have gone so far as to suggest that it could reveal that Deadpool’s time travel shenanigans created the MCU which is why he always breaks the fourth wall and knows so much about others franchises and worlds.

Ajax’s connections with the Red Room or HYDRA

Ed Skrein as Ajax in Deadpool

Another way to connect Deadpool’s previous adventures to the MCU and ease his transition is through Ajax (Ed Skrein) and the people he worked for. Ajax was an artificially mutated member of the program that created Deadpool, who along with Angel Dust (Gina Carano) injected Deadpool with the serum to awaken latent mutant genes and also tortured him. In the comics, Ajax worked for Weapon X, but in Deadpool it was unknown who he worked for, which gave way to different theories. The bigger ones suggest Ajax’s employers were tied to the Red Room, those responsible for the Black Widows, or he could have worked for HYDRA as well. It would bind dead Pool to some of the darker parts of the MCU, integrating it more seamlessly.
