Deadpool 3 will see Hugh Jackman reprising his role as Wolverine. While having other X-Men characters in the film, people are wondering if Weapon XI will be back. Well, there is not any official news about the return of the character. However, Adkins expressed his wish to come back in the third and the last installment of the film. The Wrexham owner also dropped a major revelation about a fan-favorite character, Peter, from the first movie.

While reminiscing about his experience in the X-Men film, he said if the 46-year-old actor called him and asked to come back, he would love to do it. Even if it meant Deadpool would kill Weapon XI once again. Because Jackman had already revealed the timeline of Deadpool 3, it would make sense if the film saw the return of Weapon XI.
