Ever since Deadpool Three was formally introduced as a Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) film, followers have theorized as to how the wisecracking superhero will make the soar to the money-spinning franchise.
Effectively, surprise no extra, as a result of it appears like a serious character from Loki’s TV present will play an integral position in how Deadpool (and Wolverine) will make their MCU debuts.
In keeping with a number of Marvel leakers, together with DanielRPK and CanWeGetSomeToast, Owen Wilson’s Agent Mobius could have an enormous position in Deadpool 3. Actually, the entire Time Variance Authority (TVA) could have a serious say in how The Merc With a Mouth’s first correct MCU outing will play out, though no person is aware of plot specifics at the moment.
Nonetheless, it makes whole sense why Agent Mobius and the TVA will play main roles – if the rumour is true – within the forthcoming superhero film.
For starters, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has already defined that Loki season 2 will instantly join all three phases of the MCU’s Multiverse Saga (per Marvel.com). That features Deadpool 3, which is able to both bookend Marvel Section 5 or start Marvel’s Section 6 slate.
Kang the Conqueror – the MCU’s subsequent major villain – was additionally first launched in Loki episode 6, aka the final entry within the present’s first season. So it is unsurprising that Loki’s second season will play a major half in shaping the Multiverse Saga’s overarching narrative.
However, there’s way more to the connection between Deadpool Three and Loki’s TV present than merely Kang’s MCU arrival. The TVA (and Agent Mobius) have been the division that oversaw the MCU’s Sacred Timeline, pruning any branching timelines that may have instantly impacted it, and stopping any of the infinite variety of universes from colliding with the MCU. These incidents are known as Nexus occasions and happen when a person tampers with the Sacred Timeline by way of their actions. In Loki’s case, this was stealing the Tessaract in 2012 through the Avengers’ time heist, which befell in 2023 throughout Avengers: Endgame, thus altering his whole MCU arc, together with his demise in Avengers: Infinity Warfare.
The demise of He Who Stays, certainly one of Kang’s multiversal variants, in Loki’s season 1 finale on Disney Plus, resulted in the breaking down of obstacles between the Marvel multiverse’s many timelines. Subsequently, the Sacred Timeline now not exists and characters from throughout the Marvel multiverse are free to cross over into the MCU.

That is the place Deadpool Three elements in. If Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman’s unique incarnations of Deadpool and Wolverine bleed over into the MCU – and the good cash says this would be the case – they’re going to current a serious downside for the TVA. Why? As a result of their time variants, i.e. people who aren’t speculated to exist within the MCU, however who’ve crossed over from Fox’s now defunct X-Males universe. Remember to learn our information on the right way to watch the X-Males films to ensure those extra particulars on that out-of-date movie franchise.
Whereas Sylvie, certainly one of Loki’s variants, is guilty of the Sacred Timeline’s breakdown – bear in mind, she killed He Who Stays within the MCU Section four TV collection – it is Mobius who’s prone to be the offender for Deadpool (and Wolverine) coming into the MCU.
Based mostly on what we learn about Loki season 2, the god of mischief and Mobius will attempt to forestall time totally breaking down because of Sylvie’s season 1 actions. Sadly for Loki, it appears he may not be utterly helpful in the battle to save lots of the Sacred Timeline and cease Kang from conquering the multiverse. A primary trailer for Loki season 2 was proven throughout Marvel’s D23 Expo 2022 presentation, which confirmed the trickster god will likely be affected by a glitching sickness. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse followers will already know why that is occurring to him.
Anyway, if Loki struggles to (actually) maintain himself collectively, it might fall to Mobius to save lots of the multiverse. And also you already know he’ll wish to accomplish that, what with him being an enormous participant within the TVA.
Nevertheless, if he is unsuccessful in doing so, his actions may inadvertently pave the way in which for Deadpool and Wolverine to cross over into the MCU. That might be an unbelievable approach to setting Deadpool 3’s story up, with the pair inflicting havoc throughout the MCU as Mobius and the TVA attempt to cease them. Hey, Deadpool already messed along with his personal timeline in Deadpool 2 – the movie’s mid-credits scene is proof of that – so he has type for tinkering with chronological occasions.
If we’re proper in our assumptions, Mobius could have an enormous say in how Deadpool 3’s plot performs out. We do not have insider data on both missions, so do not take any of this as gospel. However, if this finally ends up being right, we’ll settle for any plaudits that come with our approach.
