Another reliable scooper Daniel RPK shared a rumour late last year that Deadpool 3 will visit the original Fantastic Four played by Ioan Gruffudd, Jessica Alba, Michael Chiklis and, yes, Chris Evans. The latter famously went on to play Captain America in the MCU, but that doesn’t mean he can’t reprise his Human Torch.
In fact, Giant Freakin Robot’s latest scoop on the movie is that Evans is in talks to reprise the role. This is certainly believable given that Reynolds almost tried to get him to cameo as Johnny Storm in Deadpool 2 when he was recruiting his X-Force team. The outlet also claims that Howard the Duck, Loki and Jonathan Majors’ Kang The Conqueror will be in Deadpool 3, alongside Anna Paquin’s Rogue.
Whatever the case, what appears clear is this is all leading up to the MCU’s next Endgame. The current Multiverse Saga will conclude in 2026 with Avengers: Secret Wars and fans will know this is the title of a comic book run where the Marvel multiverse collided. It seems incredibly likely that Kevin Feige plans to top Avengers Endgame’s final battle charge by including superheroes from Fox and Sony universes of years gone by.
