Shawn Levy Comments on the Inclusion of Numerous Cameos in ‘Deadpool & Wolverine’ & Confirms Something that We Were Afraid Of


‘Deadpool & Wolverine’ is less than a month away, and MCU fandom is ablaze. The movie is being heavily marketed online with goofy teasers, posters, and social media posts by the cast themselves.

The movie is bound to be important for several reasons, it’s Deadpool’s first foray into the MCU as well as Wolverine’s. The studio is expecting to cash in on the movie big time considering that long-term projections show that it might be the highest-grossing movie this year.

Over the course of the long marketing campaign, much of the focus was on cameos & variants. There are over 20 confirmed and rumored characters to be included in the film, most of them from the previous Fox ‘X-Men’ franchise, at this point, we’ve seen so many cameos that fans are asking whether the movie has a plot at all or if it’s just going to be a collection of random shots showcasing former X-Men, villains and other characters related to Marvel properties, such as CW’s Blade played by Sticky Fingaz.

In his recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Shawn Levy commented on the cameos in the upcoming movie and revealed that they aren’t going to be part of the story as much as they are going to be “peppered in throughout.”

We didn’t want any of the cameos or characters to be the story of the movie. But they are peppered in throughout. There’s a lot of characters. The internet is a delight of rumors about the multitude of character cameos that are in this movie. Some rumors are true, some are way off base.

This is something that fans have been afraid of, that cameos will be in large part unimportant and they are going to be included as fan-service, the lowest form of fan-service, something that ‘Multiverse of Madness’ managed to mess up as well.

There are also high expectations when it comes to cameos in ‘Deadpool & Wolverine’ in the sense that some impossible characters have been teased and rumored, such as Doctor Doom and even Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man, there’s no way that the movie can deliver all of that while keeping a cohesive storyline good.

In any case, we’re bound to see the result in just a few weeks since ‘Deadpool & Wolverine’ arrives in theaters on July 26.
