The production of Deadpool 3 is back on track. The upcoming MCU movie will unite Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman, once again playing Deadpool and Wolverine, as the two set on an epic adventure throughout the Marvel Multiverse. Interestingly, some new Deadpool 3 set photos have surfaced as a result, and they include new spoilers regarding the project.
Many details regarding the highly-anticipated blockbuster have been kept under wraps. Nevertheless, it’s been expected that characters from Fox’s X-Men film franchise, among other properties, will be included in the film’s plot. Now new images seem to have revealed one familiar character from the series that will be making an appearance.
Of course, that means there are major spoilers below, so keep that in mind if you choose to continue reading. Nevertheless, it looks like fans of the previous films will be in for quite a surprise.
The new images, as first shared via UK’s Mirror, seem to indicate that Sabretooth is back for Deadpool 3. The character appeared in the original X-Men movie from 2000. In that film Tyler Mane played the character, and while it’s unknown if Mane returned to reprise the role for Deadpool 3, it certainly looks like they chose someone with the same look.
Additionally, it appears as though Wolverine and Deadpool battle the character, and that it ultimately ends in their favor. One of the images reveals Deadpool holding the character’s decapitated head high in the air.
