Deadpool 3: What Do We Know So Far & Fun Props You Can Bet on It

Deadpool 3

Deadpool fans have been waiting since 2018 for a sequel, and that wait may have paid off with something more ambitious than what could have just been a typical Deadpool 3 cash grab all these years later.

We are instead getting Deadpool & Wolverine, and not only is Hugh Jackman reprising his most famous role, but it is officially part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) now.

With the original Deadpool having so much success as an R-rated superhero movie, could there be big changes ahead for Ryan Reynolds and company? Even Logan (2017) was an R-rated success the last time we saw Jackman as Wolverine in a non-cameo appearance.

We have gathered what we know about Deadpool & Wolverine so far, and there are also some fun props you can bet on at top-rated sportsbooks before the film releases this summer.

Who Is Making Deadpool & Wolverine?

Deadpool & Wolverine is now a property of Marvel Studios and Disney. Director Shawn Levy is new to the series, but he is no stranger to star Ryan Reynolds. The duo has collaborated recently, as Levy directed Reynolds in Free Guy (2021) and The Adam Project (2022).

Levy is the director of the Night at the Museum films, and he also directed Hugh Jackman in Real Steel (2011), the sci-fi movie about human-controlled robots taking part in boxing matches.

Ryan Reynolds

Before you question Levy’s credentials, keep in mind screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are also working on this script after writing Deadpool and Deadpool 2 together. Reynolds and Levy are also getting screenwriting credit for Deadpool & Wolverine, and comic book writer Zeb Wells, who has done comics for X-Men and Spider-Man, is also part of the deep writing team here.

Is Deadpool & Wolverine Going to Be Rated R?

This is of great interest to fans as a big part of the Deadpool character has been to swear, f-bombs included, and to have more intense violence in the action scenes than the typical Marvel movies.

Barring a twist, Deadpool & Wolverine is going to be the first R-rated movie in the MCU, something the previous 33 films did not do. Director Levy has said they are not going to mess with the DNA of the series even if this is very new territory for the character of Deadpool.

What Do We Know About the Plot of Deadpool & Wolverine?

To fit these characters into the MCU when none of their previous films exist in that timeline, Deadpool & Wolverine is going to utilize the Time Variance Authority (TVA). This is the organization that monitors the timeline that we saw in the Disney+ Loki series that Owen Wilson’s character was part of, though he is not listed in the credits so far.

In this film, Matthew Macfadyen (Succession) is the TVA agent known as Paradox, who is enlisting Wade Wilson (Deadpool) on a mission to change the events in the MCU along with Wolverine, a character we have seen collaborate with Deadpool in past forms of media.

The trailers have been very light on showing Wolverine’s involvement in the plot, but you can expect the duo to have to find a way to work together to accomplish their goal. Jennifer Garner is expected to reprise her role of Elektra from the Daredevil universe, and Patrick Stewart (Professor X), Josh Brolin (Cable) and Aaron Stanford (Pyro) are among the many actors expected to appear from past comic book movies.

When Does Deadpool & Wolverine Come Out?

Deadpool & Wolverine will be released on July 26, 2024, in the United States. It will be considered part of Phase Five in the MCU.

Fun Deadpool & Wolverine Props to Bet

At BetOnline (visit our BetOnline Review to learn more), you can find several fun props to bet on for Deadpool & Wolverine. Some are silly like giving Deadpool odds of -900 to use the f-word more than Wolverine (+500), which should be a lock for Ryan Reynolds’ chatty character.

But we look at the more interesting ones below.

Opening Weekend U.S. Box Office

Odds are found at BetOnline:

  • Over $125 million (-170)
  • Under $125 million (+130)

It would be a shock if this was anything but over $125 million. Deadpool was over $132 million in 2016, and that was a February release, which is harder to do than the summer period. Deadpool 2 also opened at just over $125 million in 2018 in a May release.

Yet, you throw in the addition of Wolverine and slapping the MCU brand on this one, even with the R rating, this one is going to put up numbers this summer and go over $125 million on opening weekend.

Which Characters Have More Kills in the Movie?

Odds are from BetOnline:

  • Deadpool (-200)
  • Wolverine (+150)

There is no context on whether the kills have to be explicitly done on screen to count or not. According to a fan site like the List of Deaths Wiki, Wolverine killed 34 people in Logan, his best and only R-rated film in 2017. Meanwhile, Deadpool is averaging a solid 80.5 kills per his 2 movies, though several dozens of those are off-screen kills.

This could be a close race, but with the way Wolverine is more about brute force and using his claws, we think Deadpool will prevail as the lead and rack up more kills in a variety of ways.

Number of 4th Wall Breaks in the Movie

Breaking the 4th wall is when the character looks directly at the camera and speaks to the audience. It has been popularized in the films Alfie (1966), Annie Hall (1977), Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (1986), and it is something Ryan Reynolds has done often as Deadpool.

Odds are from BetOnline:

  • Over 6.5 (-220)
  • Under 6.5 (+165)

Breaking the 4th wall has been part of Deadpool’s character for a while, and it is something Reynolds is very effective at doing. With Reynolds part of the screenwriting team with his pal Levy again, you can expect a good share of these in the movie as we already see one in the first trailer that was released.

According to a 2016 article by Mashable, there were 23 4th-wall breaks in Deadpool, and the sequel likely was up there too. We’ll take the over 6.5 times speaking to the audience in Deadpool & Wolverine. We assume it counts if Wolverine tries it too, as it does not mention it explicitly has to be done by Deadpool.

To Happen to Dogpool in Deadpool & Wolverine

With this movie taking place in the multiverse, you might expect to see different versions of Deadpool appear. One of those is confirmed to be Dogpool, who is in fact Deadpool in canine form. You can bet on what may happen to Dogpool in the movie at BetOnline:

  • In Closing Scene (+300)
  • Finds a Mate (+300)
  • Die (+500)
  • In Opening Scene (+800)
  • To Lick Elektra (+800)
  • Drink a Beer (+800)
  • Becomes a Father (+800)

This is a bit out of left field, but smart money would be on the first two choices, which could both hit.

Since the movie starts with Deadpool being sucked into the MCU by the TVA, Dogpool is likely not going to be in the opening scene. But the closing scene? He could even find a mate to be happy with for that closing scene, killing two birds with one stone. But we’ll draw the line at becoming a father. Save something for the sequel.

It would also be on brand for a joke like Dogpool licking Elektra, but exactly how much of a role will she really have in this? Dogs dying is also something people absolutely hate to see in movies, and while Deadpool is no stranger to subverting the audience, we think Levy and Reynolds will avoid doing that in this one too.

It’s the closing scene as the best bet, and finding a mate is right up there.

When Deadpool & Wolverine comes out this summer, it should be quite the spectacle to see how the MCU handles its first R-rated film. A big success could greenlight plenty of other more mature stories going forward.
