New Deadpool & Wolverine Reveal Makes The Movie’s Wildest Theory Almost Inevitable

Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool seems to receive a helpful tool in a new image from Marvel Studios’ Deadpool & Wolverine, supporting a major theory for the upcoming MCU Phase 5 movie. Deadpool & Wolverine was confirmed to be in development by lead star Ryan Reynolds and Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige shortly after Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox was finalized in 2019. Hugh Jackman was revealed to be returning as James “Logan” Howlett’s Wolverine in September 2022, and, since then, official trailers for Deadpool & Wolverine have uncovered an epic multiversal journey for the merc-with-a-mouth and his clawed best friend.

Expected to bring Deadpool into the MCU proper on a permanent basis, Deadpool & Wolverine will bridge the gap between the MCU and 20th Century Fox’s X-Men franchise. This creates the opportunity for a huge number of exciting cameos, with the likes of Pyro, Lady Deathstrike, Azazel and Thor being confirmed, while there are sure to be many more surprises. Suspected MCU cameos in Deadpool & Wolverine gives weight to a theory regarding Deadpool and Wolverine’s massive journey in the upcoming movie, and a new image from the project hints at this mission being a lot easier than first expected.

In a new image featured in a May 2024 Entertainment Weekly article revealing more about Hugh Jackman’s role in Deadpool & Wolverine, the titular mutants can be seen in the halls of the MCU’s Time Variance Authority. The TVA is expected to send Deadpool and Wolverine on a dangerous mission in Phase 5, and this image suggests the organization will gift Deadpool a TemPad to aid in this journey. First introduced in Marvel Studios’ Loki series, TemPads allow for easy travel through time and across the branching timelines of the Sacred Timeline, revealing more about Deadpool and Wolverine’s upcoming journey.

Deadpool’s TemPad Can Make It Easy For Him To Travel Through The MCU’s History

The fact that Deadpool may be receiving a TemPad from the TVA in Deadpool & Wolverine gives weight to a theory that Deadpool and Wolverine will be traveling throughout the MCU’s history. A recent, since removed, report suggested that Deadpool and Wolverine would be revisiting some major, fan-favorite moments from the MCU’s Phases 1, 2, 3 and 4, opening the door for some massive moments to be reinvented with the mutants’ involvement, and for beloved MCU heroes to make cameo appearances. Wielding a TemPad makes this theory all but inevitable, as Deadpool can literally walk from one event to another.

After the release of Deadpool & Wolverine’s first trailer in February 2024, there was speculation that Deadpool may have been seen in Avengers: Age of Ultron’s opening forest scene, and on the Hulk’s bed on Sakaar from Thor: Ragnarok. Since then, many other major MCU events have been suspected to appear in Deadpool & Wolverine, perhaps most notably Avengers: Endgame’s final battle scene. Since Deadpool and Wolverine may have the help of a TemPad in the MCU’s Phase 5, this journey can be a lot easier for the two powerful mutants, but could pose a problem for the MCU’s future.

Deadpool’s MCU Journey Could Create Huge Problems For The MCU’s Phase 6

While it would be brilliant to see Deadpool and Wolverine travel throughout the MCU’s history in Phase 5, this could create some dangerous threats for the entire franchise heading into Phase 6. Deadpool using a TemPad to jump around the Sacred Timeline will seemingly create a number of branching timelines, and since Deadpool & Wolverine is suspected to take place prior to Loki season 2 establishing a safe multiverse, this could create Nexus events. The creation of these Nexus events has proven dangerous in the past, particularly with the threat of Kang the Conqueror looming in the Sacred Timeline’s branches.

Whether it be Nexus events of incursions being created in Deadpool & Wolverine, this Phase 5 movie can set up some major storylines for upcoming projects, including Avengers 5 and Avengers: Secret Wars. Even though these incursions could create huge issues for the MCU, this could tease Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman’s inclusion in Phase 6’s upcoming projects, with the latter perhaps returning for a final time before Marvel Studios recasts Wolverine for the MCU. Deadpool & Wolverine is expected to be a thrilling adventure that will revive passion in the MCU, but it could also create some significant issues.
