The red-suited anti-hero’s latest adventure, Deadpool 3, is going to shock the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as a solo entity is now rumoured to carry the weight of setting the stage for another massive event in the Marvel Universe, Avengers: Secret Wars.
Deadpool 3 promises to throw moviegoers into a multiverse maelstrom, a revelation made even more intriguing by the appearance of Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine. The sheer appearance of this clawed X-Man suggests a deep web of parallel universes, promising depth, surprises, and linkages to previous Marvel efforts.
Sources are buzzing with rumours, but one name jumps out: KC Walsh (@TheComixKid on X). According to Walsh, Deadpool 3 is about more than just introducing the ‘Merc with a Mouth’ into the MCU – it’s about averting a multiversal disaster, and the TVA plays a critical role in this mission. The plot is said to revolve around the TVA recruiting heroes from dying worlds to save the Multiverse.
‘DEADPOOL 3’ will reportedly lead directly into ‘AVENGERS: SECRET WARS’.
The film will showcase multiple realities collapsing and the #TVA’s plan to save certain heroes from each reality and place them on New Earth/Battleworld.

Logan from the Fox universe and Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) meet within the limits of the TVA, which is a fascinating aspect of the multiversal adventure.
Their unanticipated meeting has the potential to reshape the narrative borders between different Marvel organisations. Fans are already guessing that New Earth/Battleworld will be the setting for this dynamic duo’s shenanigans, based on recent set photos.
In addition, the inclusion of these legendary characters from other realms represents the MCU’s commitment to weaving diverse narratives together, making the narrative tapestry richer and more interwoven than ever before.
Deadpool 3 is said to set the tone and plot for Avengers: Secret Wars. This means that the film will serve as both a standalone story and a bridge to one of the most anticipated Marvel crossovers. Jennifer Garner’s comeback as Elektra has been confirmed, while rumours about Ben Affleck playing Daredevil have been disproved.
Many known figures from past Deadpool films will return, in addition to the primary cast. Morena Baccarin, Karan Soni, Leslie Uggams, Rob Delaney, Brianna Hildebrand, and Shioli Kutsuna are among the cast members. Emma Corrin (The Crown) and Matthew Macfadyen (Succession) will join the cast, albeit their roles are unknown.
Following the Infinity Saga, the MCU has been looking for a compelling narrative path. The unveiling of two new Avengers films at the San Diego Comic-Con offered fans reason to be optimistic.
With Deadpool 3 rumoured to connect directly into Avengers: Secret Wars with the latter finishing the ongoing Multiverse Saga in May 2027, Wade Wilson’s future appears to lie heavily on his shoulders.
Given Deadpool’s unorthodox storytelling technique, which includes breaking the fourth wall and a distinct blend of humour and action, this picture could give a fascinating spin on the standard MCU template.
Furthermore, its multiverse concepts are appropriate for the current era of the MCU, making it a product as well as a driver of the current Marvel zeitgeist.
