Speculation Mounts: Ben Affleck’s Batman and Daredevil Characters May Appear in Deadpool 3


Deadpool 3, the highly anticipated sequel in the irreverent superhero franchise, has been generating a lot of buzz among fans and industry insiders. One particular rumor that has gained traction is the possible cameo appearance of actor Ben Affleck in the film. According to industry scooper KC Walsh, Affleck was spotted on the film’s set in London, sparking speculation about his involvement in the project.

Affleck, known for his portrayals of Batman and Daredevil, has a history with the Marvel universe. He starred as the Man Without Fear in Fox’s Daredevil film in 2003 and even had a cut cameo as the character in the spinoff Elektra in 2005. Given the rumors of Deadpool 3 featuring cameos from Marvel heroes seen in previous 20th Century Fox movies, including the X-Men and the Fantastic Four, it’s not surprising that fans are speculating about Affleck reprising his role as Daredevil/Matt Murdock in the film.

While the details of the story in Deadpool 3 have been kept under wraps, it has been confirmed that the film will integrate the Merc With the Mouth, played by Ryan Reynolds, into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Actor Owen Wilson will reprise his Loki role as Time Variance Authority (TVA) agent Mobius M. Mobius, further connecting Deadpool to the broader MCU. This has led to speculation that Deadpool’s upcoming adventure will involve time travel and exploration of different dimensions.

Fans are eagerly anticipating the possibilities of Deadpool interacting with other Marvel characters, and co-creator Rob Liefeld has teased that the upcoming film will feature some surprising and exciting moments. Liefeld stated, “The stuff I know, it will melt your face, alright? That’s all I’m going to say, it’ll melt your face!”

One of the biggest additions to Deadpool 3 is the return of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, reprising the iconic role he played across multiple X-Men films. However, Reynolds has clarified that this version of Wolverine will be a different take on the character, providing a fresh perspective for Jackman to explore. It’s important to note that Deadpool 3 will not undo Wolverine’s climactic death seen in Logan (2017), ensuring that the character’s arc remains intact.

Alongside Reynolds and Jackman, the film will see the return of other franchise regulars, including Morena Baccarin as Vanessa, Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Karan Soni as Dopinder, Briana Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Shioli Kutsuna as Yukio, Stefan Kapičić as Colossus, and Rob Delaney as Pete. The talented Emma Corrin, known for her role in The Crown, has been cast as the film’s unknown villain, while Matthew Macfadyen from Succession has also joined the cast in an undisclosed role.

Directed by Shawn Levy, Deadpool 3 has a script penned by Levy, Reynolds, Zeb Wells, and the previous Deadpool scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. The film is set to hit theaters on May 3, 2024, and fans are eagerly anticipating what promises to be an exciting and unpredictable addition to the Deadpool franchise. With the potential inclusion of Ben Affleck and the return of Hugh Jackman, the film is shaping up to be a star-studded extravaganza that will surely delight fans of the Merc With the Mouth.
