The multiverse concept has opened a ton of possibilities for the Marvel Cinematic Universe in terms of storytelling and fan service. Since the beginning of the Multiverse Saga in 2021, Marvel Studios has utilized it although the stuff they've put out so far has been either a hit or a miss.

After Spider-Man: No Way Home and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness featured several mindblowing multiversal cameos, Wade Wilson's highly anticipated MCU crossover is set to take things up a notch, with Deadpool 3 reportedly serving as a love letter to the now-defunct Fox X-Men film franchise.

Most of you are probably aware by now that the Merc with a Mouth's first adventure in Earth-616 will also feature the return of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, seven years after he ended his tenure as the iconic mutant in Logan. However, despite the excitement shown by fans of the Australian star, one person is seemingly not thrilled about Wolverine crossing over to the MCU.

Speaking with Variety, James Mangold, who helmed the 2017 R-rated blockbuster admitted that if he had things his way, he'd keep Hugh Jackman's Wolverine away from the MCU.

The Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny director did state that he understand's the studio's decision to bring him back and isn't surprised at all.

Mangold said: "There was always going to be another Wolverine ... As much liquid as they can squeeze out of that rag, they're going to try to."

We totally get where Mangold's concern is coming from but it's already been confirmed that Deadpool 3 won't have any effects on the events of Logan, despite all the potential shenanigans that could come with it.

Deadpool 3's release date has been moved up from Nov. 8, 2024, to May 3, 2024.
