Ben Affleck Rumored for Marvel’s Deadpool 3

The latest rumor suggests Ben Affleck will return to “Deadpool 3” reprising his role as Daredevil.  The film is scheduled to arrive in theaters on May 3, 2024.

The rumor comes from KC Walsh  a.k.a. @TheComixKid, who reports that Affleck was seen on the Deadpool 3 set, with the threequel having begun principal photography in England towards the end of last month. While Walsh has “no idea who he is playing,” the mere mention of Affleck being around this production has set off speculation that he’s reprising Matt Murdock, a.k.a. Daredevil, whom he played in the 2003 Daredevil movie. Walsh acknowledged in a separate tweet that this is “likely,” but at the moment, there isn’t any information available to verify that.

As always, since nothing has been confirmed by Marvel or Disney, we will treat this as a rumor for now.

In “Deadpool 3,” a weary Wolverine finds himself recovering from his injuries when he comes across a loudmouth Deadpool who has time traveled forward to heal his greatest pal in the hopes to befriend the wild beast and to team up to take down a foe they both have in common.

Ryan Reynolds will star and Hugh Jackman has been confirmed to return as Wolverine.  Emma Corrin (The Crown) and Matthew Macfadyen (Succession) have also joined the project.

Recently, it was announced that Morena Baccarin and Stefan Kapicic will also reprise their roles as Vanessa and Colossus, respectively, in the upcoming “Deadpool 3.”  It was also recently announced that Karan Soni and Leslie Uggams would return as Dopinder and Blind Al, respectively, from the first two films and Brianna Hildebrand and Shioli Kutsuna are set to return as Negasonic Teenage Warhead and Negasonic Teenage Warhead’s girlfriend Yukio.  Additionally, Rob Delaney will return to portray Peter who was first introduced in Deadpool 2.

Shawn Levy will direct.  Paul Wernick & Rhett Reese are returning to pen the script along with Zeb Wells. Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Logelin wrote a previous draft.   Kevin Feige will produce along with Shawn Levy and Ryan Reynolds.

Filming on the third Deadpool film is currently underway.

Recent rumors indicate Owen Wilson will reprise his “Loki” role as Time Variance Authority Agent Mobius in “Deadpool 3” however nothing has been confirmed.  Additional rumors suggest several X-Men characters will appear as well.

“Deadpool,” “Deadpool 2” and Season 1 of “Loki” are available to stream now on Disney+.  The second season of “Loki” will premiere on Disney+ on October 6, 2023.
