Bruce Campbell’s fake “Deadpool 3” leak may be little more than a lighthearted joke, but some are no doubt wondering what the odds are that the actor would actually pop up in the movie when all is said and done. It’s certainly not out of the question, though it probably wouldn’t have Campbell as his Ash Williams persona. However, the circumstances of a possible Campbell cameo could be even more wild than that.
To date, Campbell has shown up in four Marvel movies — the Tobey Maguire “Spider-Man” trilogy and “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” all of which were directed by his frequent collaborator Sam Raimi. While some consider Campbell’s repeated appearances to be little more than fun little nods, one interesting MCU theory suggests that he’s secretly the Marvel multiverse’s most powerful god. With “Deadpool 3” likely retaining the series’ irreverent meta quality, an appearance from yet another multiverse variant of Campbell could be a surprisingly fitting part of the movie.
For what it’s worth, Campbell has already worked closely with Ryan Reynolds. In 2023, the actor became the host of the series “Discontinued,” which exclusively aired on Reynolds’ Fubo channel, Maximum Effort. “Honestly, it’s great to work with a guy like Ryan Reynolds because the guy has a plan,” Campbell said of his fellow actor in an interview with TV Insider. Perhaps a Marvel-themed collaboration could be in the duo’s future after all.
