Marvel Fans Think They’ve Found Proof That Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool Will Make MCU Debut In ‘Doctor Strange 2’

LOOK: Proof That Deadpool Will Make MCU Debut In 'Doctor Strange 2'

Marvel Studios/20th Century Fox


  • Marvel Studios dropped a new trailer for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness during the Super Bowl.
  • In addition to the new trailer, a new poster for the film was also released online.
  • Some eagle-eyed fans believe they can see a reference to Deadpool, and other Marvel characters, in the poster.

Of all of the talking points to follow in the wake of Marvel Studios’ new trailer for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the most intriguing has been which Marvel characters might pop up in the film as the 2016 sequel to Doctor Strange is expected to have tons of cameos from across the history of Marvel Movies.

Not only did the trailer explicitly confirm that Patrick Stewart’s Professor X would appear in the film, but there’s also been speculation that other characters such as Mister Fantastic, Namor, and even an alternate universe version of Iron Man played by Tom Cruise.

One of the most tantalizing theories, though, is that Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will serve as the debut film for Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool, who is expected to make the jump to the MCU in the coming years. While there are no references to the character in the trailer, some fans think they’ve spotted his famed mask in the official poster for the film.

It’s already been confirmed that an R-rated Deadpool 3 is in the works at Marvel Studios so perhaps this is the movie that will introduce the character into the main MCU timeline before cutting him loose in his own film.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which was directed by Spider-Man filmmaker Sam Raimi and stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Elizabeth Olsen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Benedict Wong, Xochitl Gomez, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Rachel McAdams, is set to hit theaters in the United States on Friday, May 6.
