Will Thor Be In MCU's Deadpool 3? Chris Hemsworth Responds

Chris Hemsworth jokingly proposes a cameo from Thor in Deadpool 3. After Disney’s acquisition of Fox’s movie and TV assets, the upcoming threequel has been integrated as a part of the MCU. Deadpool 3 will see Ryan Reynolds return to play the titular wisecracking mercenary Wade Wilson, with his Free Guy and The Adam Project collaborator Shawn Levy directing. Despite the property now being in Marvel’s hands, Kevin Feige has confirmed that Deadpool 3 will remain R-rated, although now the character may play around in the PG-13 sandbox for other MCU appearances. So far, a release date for Deadpool 3 hasn’t been set in stone, but there are plans to commence filming in late 2022.

It has been quite a while since the last Deadpool movie came out. But given the Fox-Disney merger, the delay isn’t totally unexpected. In fact, it is considerably positive news that Deadpool 3 is steadily making headway, after facing a precarious future when its original writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick were briefly replaced by Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Logelin. Reese and Wernick know what to do with Deadpool, and even under a new studio, they seem to have big plans for the Merc with a Mouth. Recently, after collaborating with him for Spiderhead, Reese and Wernick also spoke up on the possibility of Chris Hemsworth appearing in Deadpool 3 as Thor. The pair remained tight-lipped on if the cameo was actually happening, although they did welcome the prospect.

Now, with the word coming from the horse’s mouth itself, Hemsworth has a reply to whether he would appear in Deadpool 3. During an interview with BBC Radio 1, Hemsworth played off the Jackman/Reynolds feud and joked about breaking Jackman’s record of playing a superhero for 16 years. The actor sportively jested that he won’t let Jackman do a cameo in Deadpool 3. Rather, he’d make some calls, and get himself in the movie instead. Of course, this was just a witty banter between him and the host, although it does prove that Hemsworth is just as interested in a Deadpool 3 cameo as any other franchise fan. Read what the actor said below.

“I make might some calls to make sure [Jackman doesn’t appear in Deadpool 3]…I’ll put myself in Deadpool instead. That would be the offering.”

After playing the mighty Asgardian King for a straight decade, Hemsworth is now headed to reprise his role as Thor in Taika Waititi’s upcoming film Thor: Love and Thunder. Waititi has suggested that he currently has no plans for Thor 5, and Hemsworth believes that the upcoming movie could be his last MCU appearance. This information has not been officially confirmed, and will only become known once the endgame of Marvel’s Phase 4 becomes clear. However, there is speculation that, as the last surviving member of the big three Avengers, Thor might show up in other MCU projects, potentially to set up new stories and introduce new characters. For this reason, a cameo in Deadpool 3 seems logical, as Disney can use an established player to familiarize MCU fans with Wade Wilson.

If Thor does end up appearing in Deadpool 3, their scenes together will surely be hilarious. The goofy/aloof God of Thunder’s old-school humor paired with Wade Wilson’s explicit jokes will be a joy to behold, something that will absurdly up the ante of the Deadpool franchise. Because of different content ratings, and presumably different universes, it is hard for Wade Wilson to mix with the Avengers. But to incorporate the character fully into the franchise, it is necessary that he encounters a heroic Marvel mainstay and they fight side-by-side. A potential meeting between Thor and Deadpool may require one to travel to another world or timeline, but these specifics can be ironed out creatively before production commences. Right now, it’s too soon to tell if Thor will show up in Deadpool 3, but hopefully, forthcoming set videos and images can give fans a clear idea.
