The last time we saw Wade at the end of “Deadpool 2,” he was jumping around his timeline thanks to the transporter device he stole from Cable (Josh Brolin). It was there he shot the muted version of himself in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” and saved beloved X-Force member Peter (Rob Delaney) from certain death. Now, though, with the surprise appearance of Shatterstar, are we to presume that Wade went back and saved other X-Force members after their botched mission? If so, has Wade wandering through time and potentially saving his former ally led the TVA to call him into service and fix whatever he’s wrecked?
Should Wade be sent to put things right, there’s a chance that Shatterstar might find himself as another bleak punchline, just as he was before. If it’s not death by helicopter propellor, might the TVA be trying to iron out any comic-book-movie kinks causing issues that lead to an anomaly like Shatterstar disappearing from existence altogether in a “Back to the Future” style? Honestly, it’s a sacrifice we’re willing to make. But if they so much as touch a hair on the head of that sugar bear, Peter, there will be riots in the streets. That’s an X-Force member we really can’t live without, and we can only hope he makes it through the carnage when “Deadpool & Wolverine” arrives in theatres on July 26.
