The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU)

He/him
Well I'm here for it. Ryan and Hugh are good fun. The Deadpool movies are great. Hugh is Wolverine. It should be good. I agree that a cute little multiversal movie ending with Wade joining the MCU, where we meet the new Wolverine, might be the best way to go.

Not sure people need to be so stressed about Wolverine being the gateway. I mean, they already brought in Xavier. This also isn't out for another 2 years. I'd expect we'll have seen a couple of X-Men long before that. Storm would definitely be my guess.
 
Wolverine was the gateway to the X-Men for a very long time but not so much now. The Singer movies reducing most other main team characters to small parts to inflate Logan’s role made sense at the time but cost these incredible characters fans. Everyone who read the comics growing up or watched the cartoon has multiple favourite characters - and Wolverine is rarely anyone’s ultimate favourite.

Now…he’s a great Marvel character. So many brilliant stories are Wolverine-focused. But give it a rest. They nailed Logan.

Most people’s faves - especially online - will feature almost any of the other main iconic 90s team before Wolverine. From my experience.
 
I’m sure this will work with some multiverse explanation but… I want them to start putting distance between the Fox X-Men at some point before introducing them in the MCU.

I’m guessing this basically means they don’t have any MCU X-Men films/shows lined up for the next few years. It makes sense to do this if that’s the case but I really do hope this is the end of the Fox Actors coming back.
Like I get it, Hugh is popular but if the character is to be used going forward they need a recast. Hugh may be iconic in the role but he’s nothing like the character should be! I also always felt like they made the character fit the actor rather than the actor fit the character.
The Fox films completely sidelined so many great characters in favour of him, they never even had a chance to be honest.
 
So many complaints about this! For anyone who has seen the other Deadpool movies, it’ll clearly just be a one off adventure with Logan as fan service. Nothing more than that.

I very much doubt that Feige would introduce the Xmen using Wolverine, especially Hugh Jackman’s version, as it would just be a carbon copy of Singer’s franchise.

I don't think they'll be using Wolverine as the gateway to the X-Men/Mutants. Like someone said, this comes out in 2 years. We're getting *checks notes* Black Panther 2, Ant-Man 3, Guardians 3, The Marvels, Blade, Captain America 4 and Thunderbolts before this release date. That's a lot of films to potentially introduce more mutants. Not to mention the upcoming shows that could have them as well. The only movie that I think will have mutants (for now anyway) is The Marvels, because I really like the theory that
Mystique and Rogue are in it as secondary? villains and it ends with Rogue putting Carol in a coma.
But anyway, it's clear they're probably going for a slow build-up to introduce mutants gradually before debuting the X-Men as a team. I think this movie will be set in the Fox-verse and end with Deadpool crossing over. Like @SHYGUY said, an adaption of Deadpool Kills The Marvel Universe, but make it Fox could work really well, as long as the tone is in line with the first two films and it makes sense why he's doing it. I don't know who they'll cast as Logan, but I don't think it'll be Hugh as I can't see him wanting to come back for another decade+ as the character. If he did though, I wouldn't be mad about it, because I love him in the role. That's just me though I guess.

I think this is probably it? It’ll be a final hurrah for Hugh and the Foxverse, while Deadpool crosses over to the MCU. I’m expecting a few more cute cameos and then all-new mutants in the MCU from here on out.

Deadpool movies have never been my favourite but this is such a fun concept. I hope they go wild with it and being as many of them back as possible one final time. Then kill the Foxverse.
 
Despite the messiness of another Hugh-Wolverine picture coming now, Logan was the perfect closing chapter for an already overused character. Bringing him back again now kind of invalidates that.
This being a DeadPool movie I’m sure he’ll address this in his usual comedic banter.


I’m glad my comment triggered this discourse. Of course I don’t see Wolverine spearheading the X-Men. But this is the start of potential “X-Men” team members in the MCU. I think it’s obvious that Feige is peppering the MCU with mutants before the X-Men show up. There needs to be a reason why the X-Men is formed and the sudden appearance and eventual fallout of mutants in the MCU is the perfect catalyst.
 
I'm pretty sure Wolverine will only be there for the action and 4th wall breaking meta-humour. It's a Deadpool movie. They can practically do whatever. Whether you like the comedy or not, the 2 first movies were tonally a lot better for what they were aiming for than the Guardians movies, Ragnarok and Love and Thunder.

I can't imagine Fox Wolverine really factoring into the MCU X-Men (when they get there).

Eventhough I like Hugh Jackman, it's such an easy move by Disney to make lots of money. Also, I don't see how it harms his role in 'Logan'. If so, just don't watch Deadpool 3.

What's funny is the Marvel Cartel used to insist you watch everything, lest you be lost in the next film and that's on you, definitely not the storytellers, and now two years out from the film we're at "Just don't watch it!"

Of course, Hugh Jackman bears no ethical responsibility to hold up 'Logan' as an untouchable finale (but... it was marketed as such!), he's an actor and he wants to get paid. And Ryan Reynolds will do anything for a dollar. It's just all so telegraphed, so predictable, so traded on nostalgia (Disney's number one product). You know it will be some meta-commentary about Disney buying Fox, and these two outsiders looking for a new home and adapting to the Disney-approved MCU. They'll throw in enough "fucks" to get their R-rating, a high-profile cameo (like bringing Evans out of retirement, or teasing Fantastic Four, another Fox to Disney property) to call back to the original Avengers, and it's on to the next one.

They used to be good at this.
