Karl Urban Playing Wolverine In Deadpool 3?
This report comes only a week after industry tipster Daniel RPK aka Daniel Richtman shared news that Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe will also reportedly be appearing as a Wolverine variant in the third Deadpool movie.
Despite these casting reports not being confirmed as of writing by the cast and crew of the upcoming MCU project, various online tipsters have now reported similar news for the movie.
Potentially adding weight to the claims, or just spreading false hopes, something that will only officially be revealed once the threequel releases next May.
Reportedly, most variants are seemingly being played by actors who have been included in popular fan cast lists, with Taron Egerton being another popular fan suggestion for the role.
Additional Deadpool 3 casting reports have included names such as Wesley Snipes’ Blade, Jennifer Garner’s Elektra (now confirmed), Ian McKellen’s Magneto, Halle Berry’s Storm, Ben Affleck’s Daredevil, Channing Tatum’s Gambit, among many others.
