Deadpool 3’s Wolverine Backstory Could Retroactively Justify X-Men Movie Death

Key Points: 

  • Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine in Deadpool & Wolverine may be a variant from a different universe.
  • This version of Wolverine potentially failed to stop Jean Grey’s Dark Phoenix, leading to catastrophic consequences.
  • The film could provide a redemptive arc for the botched Dark Phoenix storyline in X-Men: The Last Stand.

Wolverine’s Multiverse Mistake and Jean Grey’s Death

The upcoming Deadpool & Wolverine film has set the stage for Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine to be a variant from a different universe. In the second trailer, Matthew Macfadyen’s Paradox character states that this Wolverine “let his universe down,” hinting at a crucial mistake that led to disastrous consequences. One popular theory suggests that this mistake could be directly tied to the controversial death of Jean Grey in X-Men: The Last Stand.

In the 2006 film, Wolverine is forced to kill Jean Grey after her uncontrollable Phoenix powers threaten to cause immense destruction. However, the Dark Phoenix storyline was rushed and poorly executed, leading to widespread criticism from fans and a subsequent retcon in the X-Men timeline. Deadpool & Wolverine could provide a redemptive arc for this botched narrative by exploring a universe where Wolverine failed to stop Jean Grey’s transformation.

An Alternate Universe Where Wolverine Couldn’t Kill Jean Grey

According to a Popular Theory  the Wolverine featured in Deadpool & Wolverine comes from a universe where he couldn’t bring himself to kill Jean Grey, leading to her Phoenix powers running rampant and causing the deaths of millions of people and mutants. As Wolverine has a healing factor that protects him from Jean’s powers, he would be left as the sole survivor of this cataclysmic event, haunted by the knowledge that he failed to stop her.

This backstory would not only provide a compelling narrative for Wolverine but also retroactively justify the controversial death of Jean Grey in X-Men: The Last Stand. By exploring an alternate universe where the consequences of Logan’s inaction were catastrophic, the film could add weight and significance to a pivotal moment in the X-Men franchise that was widely criticized for its rushed execution.
