Ian McKellan back for Deadpool 3?

With Ian McKellan rumored for Avengers: Secret Wars, that might also mean we might see Magneto in Deadpool 3 along with Jackman and possibly Stewart and Berry.

What is the Multiverse war about?

It seems Kevin Feige’s Phase 4 plans have kicked off Multiverse war with the Disney+ WandaVision show which led to Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and a lesser extent Spider-Man: No Way Home.

The Disney+ Loki series also has a lot to do with the Multiverse war which introduced the idea of Variants to the MCU and also Jonathan Majors as Kang the Conqueror who we then saw in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. October sees the release of Loki Season 2, which follows the timeline getting reset at the end of Season 1.

It’s thought the Multiverse war in Avengers: Secret Wars will feature lots of Marvel Variants battling it out, in addition to the introduction and use of new characters to the MCU (likely Doctor Doom).

Avengers: Secret Wars is still a while off, which presently gets released on May 7, 2027. The flick has no director as of yet and recently saw it reported the film lost its writer and that Sam Raimi may direct.
