In the grand spectacle of Deadpool 3, the tables had turned as it brought together a huge crew of cinematic superheroes. The spotlight gleamed on none other than Hugh Jackman, making his triumphant return as Wolverine. This highly anticipated threequel, slated to be the 34th film in the MCU, is not shy of rumors. Whispers echoed about the potential appearances of X-Men stars like Laura/X-23 and Sabretooth.

As if this roster were not thrilling enough, rumors even danced around the possible inclusion of Channing Tatum. With Emma Corrin in the villain’s role, rumors swirl about another X-Men villain joining the cast, and surprisingly, it is not Apocalypse.

In the world of Deadpool 3, a Marvel movie demands an array of villains to spice things up. The rumor mill was abuzz with speculations about Corrin taking on the role of Lady Deadpool or even Loki’s Mobius making a surprise appearance, but confirmation remains a distant promise until the film hits the screens—an entire year away. Adding to the intrigue, another whisper surfaced, suggesting that the X-Men villain Toad might join the fray, poised to challenge Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman.

The details about the plot remain elusive. Ray Park originally portrayed the character 23 years ago. Although Toad is a significant figure in X-Men comics, the film franchise featured him sparingly, with notable appearances in X-Men and X-Men: Days of Future Past. What truly cemented his cinematic legacy was a memorable scene where he battled Storm. In Deadpool 3, Toad’s return hints at more cameos and an opportunity to mock superhero movie conventions, much like the franchise has done before.
