Additionally, audiences can expect to see the return of the X-Force team, first introduced in Deadpool 2.

One of the most exciting rumors circulating about the movie is that the Juggernaut might be making a return. The Juggernaut, also known as Cain Marko, is a Marvel Comics villain who first appeared in X-Men #12.

His potential return has left fans wondering who will be portraying the iconic Marvel villain this time. However, it is likely that Ryan Reynolds will once again take on the role of Juggernaut, as he did in Deadpool 2. Reynolds played the character in a motion-capture suit, and his portrayal of the villain was praised by fans and critics alike.

Reynolds' performance brought a sense of humor to the character, which fit perfectly with the movie's irreverent tone. While there has been no official confirmation of Juggernaut's return to Deadpool 3, the fact that Reynolds played the character in the previous movie suggests that he may step into the role again.

If he does, fans can expect a fun and memorable performance that will add to the already impressive ensemble cast of the movie. And given that the movie is expected to include time travel and multiverse elements, it's possible that Reynolds could play both Juggernaut and Deadpool in the same scene.

Emma Corrin now has a range of intriguing roles to explore in Deadpool 3. One of the most captivating possibilities is Lady Deathstrike, a powerful female villain from the X-Men universe. Despite Kelly Hu's portrayal of the character in X2: X-Men United, a fresh take on the role would be welcomed in the MCU.

In the comics, Lady Deathstrike is infamous for her deep loathing of Wolverine and has a range of superhuman abilities, including adamantium-laced nails. Lady Deathstrike has had numerous intense clashes with both Wolverine and Deadpool in the comics, and bringing these confrontations to the big screen could result in some breathtaking action sequences.

Corrin could also portray Lady Deadpool (Wanda Wilson) or Spiral, a powerful sorceress with six arms. Both roles would be equally fascinating options for the actress.

Fans of Deadpool have been speculating about the upcoming third installment of the movie, as its plot has been kept tightly under wraps. There is much speculation that time travel and multiverse elements will be involved, possibly due to the recent events in Loki and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

If time travel is a part of the story, Deadpool may get the chance to rectify past mistakes and even alter events from previous movies. The multiverse elements suggest the possibility of various versions of known characters, including Deadpool himself.

One particular fan theory gaining traction is that the movie will draw from the popular comic storyline Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe. In this storyline, Deadpool embarks on a murderous rampage, taking down every character in the Marvel Universe, including some of the most iconic ones.

While it would be a daring move to adopt such a storyline, it would undoubtedly give Deadpool 3 a unique and edgy flair.
