Halle Berry has sparked speculation about her return as Storm with a recent Instagram post.
Reliable scooper @CanWeGetSomeToast confirmed on Twitter her comeback in a recent tweet alongside Famke Janssen as Jean Grey and James Marsden as Cyclops.
While the details of their involvement in the plot remain unknown, it’s worth noting that Cyclops, Storm, Jean Grey, and Wolverine formed the original team in the now-defunct 20th Century Fox franchise.
One possibility is that Wade travels back in time to seek help from these mutant heroes, and only Wolverine agrees to go with him. But the roles of Janssen, Berry, and Marsden are expected not to be significant.
The working title for “Deadpool 3” is reportedly called “Tidal Wave,” and returning cast members include Morena Baccarin as Vanessa, Karan Soni as Dopinder, Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Rob Delaney as Peter, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, and Shioli Kutsuna as Yukio.
To add, Emma Corrin and Matthew Macfadyen are joining the franchise in undisclosed roles.
There is still no official confirmation on the return of Cable (Josh Brolin) or Domino (Zazie Beetz).
Most of the plot remains a mystery for now. But Wade Wilson and Wolverine will reportedly find themselves in the MCU.
The film reportedly ties to Loki’s TVA. Leakers suggest that Wade’s debut in the MCU will play a more significant role in Phase 5 and beyond than anticipated.
