Logan was a huge movie because it allowed us to say goodbye to our favorite mutant from Fox’s X-Men, i.e. Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine. But James Mangold also did a terrific job of introducing X-23 into the mix. Dafne Keen played Laura Kinney in Logan pretty well and Fox would definitely have continued with an X-23 centered project if they were still a separate studio. But new rumors suggest she might have a chance to return in Dead Pool 3or maybe even Avengers: Secret Wars.
Goodbye Fox’s X-Men, hello MCU mutants!
It is well known that Kevin Feige was also involved in the first 3 Fox X-Men movies released in the early 2000s. This is where his career really took off and now we have a rumor suggesting he wants to make his farewell to the original X-Men characters on the big screen within the MCU. Trusted Insider Grace Randolph said in her latest video that Kevin Feige is using the multiverse saga to say goodbye to his OG X-Men, and then he’ll bring his own version of the team based on MCU Earth-616. Here, watch the video if you haven’t:
An interesting snippet of this video was about Laura Kinney/X-23.

The potential return of X-23
While Randolph primarily focused on the OG X-Men members throughout the video, she also talked about a potential return for Dafne Keene’s X-23. According to her, Dead Pool 3 might also feature Keene’s X-23, as it’s proven to be such a great addition in the past. Nothing is concrete yet. But Grace’s insights and scoops have proven true time and time again. So maybe we could see a cameo, or even a team-up of Deadpool, Logan, and X-23, plus Cable, Domino, and Colossus. It really would be a team of killers!

Dead Pool 3 obviously brings Wolverine back, but we reckon he’d be a variant of the one who died in Logan. After all, Hugh Jackman promised that Dead Pool 3 will not touch this end. But maybe it could still involve Logan‘s X-23, reprising his character a few years later Logan. This way, she would get closure by teaming up with a variant of Wolverine that resembles the one she lost. Or maybe she could also play a different variant that comes from the same Earth as Jackman’s next Wolverine variant. Both Logan and Laura could enter a combo in this case.

So adding it would just be a plus for Dead Pool 3who will be the next one No coming home kind of cinematic event closing 2024 for the MCU. It will make us nostalgic for the characters we loved in the past. But nothing about X-23 is set in stone yet. So as always, take this rumor with a grain of salt!
