The multiverse may not reap as many dividends at the box office these days (unless it’s surrounding Spider-Man, apparently), but that isn’t stopping the third ‘Deadpool’ movie from going full meta with the concept.

Deadpool 3’, which features the return of Ryan Reynolds’ Merc with a Mouth, Wade Wilson already boasts the character heading into the MCU and meeting up with a version of Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine.

But from the sounds of it, the film –– which has Shawn Levy directing in his latest collaboration with the actor –– will feature a whole host of other Marvel characters.

And according to The Hollywood Reporter, we can add another confirmed person to the list, as Jennifer Garner is back to play the character of Elektra.

Who is Elektra?

Elektra Natchios, introduced into the pages of Marvel comics by writer Frank Miller in ‘Daredevil #168’ in 1980, has been a constant presence in Daredevil’s life, and frequently a love interest. The daughter of a wealthy Greek entrepreneur, she’s trained from a young age as an assassin and boasts a wide range of abilities, including lethal skills with Sai knives.

In the movies, Garner played her opposite Ben Affleck’s Matt Murdock/Daredevil in the 2003 movie 'Daredevil,' but despite that not launching its own franchise, she would return as the character in ‘Elektra’ in 2005, which suffered a similar fate at the box office.

How Elektra will show up in ‘Deadpool 3’ remains to be seen, but we’d put money on it being a cameo and one that likely came about thanks to Garner’s work with Levy and Reynolds on Netflix film ‘The Adam Project’. It’ll certainly be fun to see her back in action.

Who is back from the other ‘Deadpool’ movies?

Returning from either one or both of the established two Deadpool movies are Morena Baccarin as Vanessa, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Karan Soni as Dopinder, Shioli Kutsuna as Yukio, Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Stefan Kapicic as Colossus and Rob Delaney as Peter.

New this time are Emma Corrin and Matthew Macfadyen as unknown characters.

Who else is supposed to show up?

Besides the confirmed characters, there are also those who are rumored to be back in action. The internet has been abuzz that Affleck will return as Daredevil, while Chris Evans has also been rumored to be returning to Marvel as a character he’s played in the past. No, not Captain America (even if Evans is most famous as him these days), but Johnny Storm/Human Torch from ‘Fantastic Four.'

The latter is more intriguing (if true) given Marvel’s aim to launch a new version of ‘Fantastic Four’ within the MCU. Clearly Kevin Feige is giving Reynolds and Levy plenty of leeway.

‘Deadpool 3’ is currently scheduled to quip his way into theaters on May 3rd, 2024.
