Owen Wilson’s Mobius quickly became a fan favorite in the first season of Loki. While Wilson is set to reprise his role for season two, which recently wrapped filming, Marvel Studios reportedly has big plans for his character.
According to industry insider Daniel Richtman, Wilson is set for the highly-anticipated Deadpool 3. Richtman took to his Patreon to share the news saying, “Owen Wilson will have a big role in Deadpool 3. He will reprise his role as Mobius from Loki.”
Ryan Reynolds is back as the merc with the mouth with Hugh Jackman returning as Wolverine. There are rumors that Lewis Tan is returning as his Deadpool 2 character Shatterstar, but as of now, that is unconfirmed. Production on Deadpool 3 is expected to begin early next year.
Currently, it’s unclear if the film will follow the continuity – or at least have the main character remember the continuity – from the first two films, or if this will be a soft reboot of sorts. Could the upcoming Multiverse arc be used as a way to shoehorn him in? Or was he always there? With a meta character like Deadpool, the possibilities are endless.
Deadpool 3 is set to be directed by Shawn Levy (Free Guy, The Adam Project). Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick return to the franchise to write. Kevin Feige will of course produce. The film will hit theaters on November 8, 2024.
