First up is Professor Charles Xavier, who met his demise in a memorable cameo during 2022’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Given Deadpool 3‘s space-time continuum, the return of this cerebral mastermind is plausible. Moving on to Magneto, who stands as one of the rare adversaries to have bested Logan before. An epic clash between these characters would undoubtedly be epic.

In Magneto’s eyes, Wolverine wasn’t just a puzzle with metal claws, he represented a possible ally in the mutant hustle. Therefore, he could be the perfect character to throw a curveball at Jackman’s Wolverine, making him second-guess his allegiances. Since Deadpool 3 still has months left before hitting the screens, fans might see the rumor mill churning out more potential additions in the coming days.
