ComicBookMovie.Com: LOGAN Star Dafne Keen Rumored To Have Closed Deal To Return As X23 For DEADPOOL 3

We had heard that Dafne Keen was in talks to reprise the role of Laura, aka X23, in Deadpool 3 prior to the strikes, and the Logan star is now rumored to have closed her deal to return…

Earlier this year, a rumor did the rounds that Logan star Dafne Keen was in talks to play an older take on X-23 in Deadpool 3 before the strikes for underway, and we’re now hearing that she has signed on to reprise the role in the upcoming MCU-set threequel.

Negotiations reportedly resumed shortly after the strikes were resolved, and insider Daniel Richtman (via Patreon) is now claiming that the His Dark Materials star will appear as Laura in the Merc With a Mouth’s next big-screen outing.

After Keen’s acclaimed performance in James Mangold’s film, it was generally assumed that she would get the chance to reprise the role down the line. Of course, that was before Disney acquired 20th Century Fox’s assets in a highly publicized takeover that same year.

Keen has previously confirmed that there were tentative talks for her to return as Laura in a future project prior to the Disney deal, and she has been hoping for an opportunity to unleash the claws again in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“I’m trying not to get my hopes up too high in case it doesn’t happen, but I really do hope it does because I loved playing Laura,” Keen told ComicBook.com in a 2020 interview. “She holds a very special place in my heart and she’s an incredible character. And to be fair, the whole Deadpool 3 situation really, really made me happy because, obviously when Disney bought Fox, I suspected they weren’t going to do any more R-rated films, but then greenlighting Deadpool is a great sign for other R-rated movies.”

We’d be very surprised if Laura had anything close to a substantial part, but if things do pan out, we could potentially see Keen suit-up as X-23 in the eventual X-Men reboot.

It sounds like a lot of other cameos have been lined up, including several X-Men characters (Storm, Cyclops, and Jean Grey among them), and possibly even Channing Tatum and Taylor Kitsch as different Variants of Gambit.

A recent rumor claimed that Liev Schreiber is set to reprise his X-Men Origins: Wolverine role as Victor Creed/Sabertooth. Variants of the Merc With a Mouth are also rumored to appear, including Dogpool (since confirmed), Kidpool, Lady Deadpool, and more.

The one major return that had been confirmed by the trades is Jennifer Garner as Elektra, but the Alias alum declined to confirm anything in a recent interview.

Morena Baccarin (Vanessa), Karan Soni (Dopinder), Leslie Uggams (Blind Al), Rob Delaney (Peter), Brianna Hildebrand (Negasonic Teenage Warhead) And Shioli Kutsuna (Yukio) will all return as their respective characters, and they’ll be joined by franchise newcomers Emma Corrin (The Crown) and Matthew Macfadyen (Succession), whose roles are still under wraps.

Plot details also remain a mystery for now, but Wade and Wolvie are expected to find themselves (trapped?) in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. A recent report claimed that Loki’s TVA, including Agent Mobius (Owen Wilson) and Miss Minutes, will be involved. We have also been led to believe that Wade’s MCU debut will be far more integral to Phase 5 and beyond than we first realized.

Shawn Levy is directing Deadpool 3, which is set to hit theaters on July 26, 2024.

Collider: ‘His Dark Materials’: Dafne Keen & Amir Wilson on Their Character Journeys in Season 3 and Their Favorite Scenes

They also discuss what the final day of filming was like and share what they got to take home from set.

The eight-episode third and final season of the HBO series His Dark Materials, based on author Philip Pullman’s The Amber Spyglass, follows Lyra (Dafne Keen) and Will (Amir Wilson) on their journey to The Land of the Dead, a dark place from which no one has ever returned. At the same time, Lyra’s parents, Mrs. Coulter (Ruth Wilson) and Lord Asriel Belacqua (James McAvoy) begrudgingly come to understand that working together may be the only way to succeed in their ultimate goals.

During this interview with Collider, co-stars Keen and Wilson talked about whether it was hard to say goodbye to these characters and this series, what they most enjoyed about their character journeys in Season 3, spending time in the Land of the Dead, Keen’s experience working with her daemon puppet, what their last day on set was like, and their favorite scenes this season.

Collider: You guys really grew up on this show, and you grew up with these characters, because you played them over a span of a few years. Does that make it harder to say goodbye to them because you’ve taken such a journey with them, or does it make it a little bit easier because you’ve gotten to explore them so deeply?

DAFNE KEEN: I think it makes it easier because it has a good ending. We get closure with the characters. We get to say goodbye to them properly. And yeah, because we knew it was coming from the beginning, that helped.

AMIR WILSON: That’s what I was going to say. We knew it was happening, of course. We read the books, and we knew that, at some point, this moment was going to happen, and it was going to get to that point. I prepared for it in my head, subconsciously, years in advance.

What did you guys most enjoy about the specific journey that your character took in Season 3? How do you feel about where they end up?

WILSON: I enjoy that Will is now more confident in himself, in Season 3. That’s the main thing for me. It was fun to be able to explore a different type of world to what we see in Season 2.

KEEN: I personally enjoyed the complications of Lyra, and the traumas that she’s having to process. And I enjoyed her relationship with Will. I think that was really fun to play around with. And her relationship with Mrs. Coulter was also really fun to play around with. The whole Land of the Dead section, where we got to reunite Lyra and Roger, and Lyra and Lee (Lin-Manuel Miranda), and have them meet Will, was very instrumental and very fun.

We’ve seen different worlds on this show, but the Land of the Dead is such an interesting one because they go on such a journey inside there. What was it like to really figure out what those aspects of that world would be, as they go on that journey?

WILSON: Will’s story, in particular, comes full circle in the Land of the Dead, in some way or another. He sees a familiar face. For Will, he was satisfied with that and gained something that he felt he was missing. A piece of him that was always missing was then filled. In that sense, the whole experience was okay for him, as sad as it is, because he got something good out of it.

KEEN: I personally enjoyed the complications of Lyra, and the traumas that she’s having to process. And I enjoyed her relationship with Will. I think that was really fun to play around with. And her relationship with Mrs. Coulter was also really fun to play around with. The whole Land of the Dead section, where we got to reunite Lyra and Roger, and Lyra and Lee (Lin-Manuel Miranda), and have them meet Will, was very instrumental and very fun.

KEEN: For Lyra, it’s good that she finally got to realize that it wasn’t her fault that Roger died. I think that’s very important for her. It was also the best way to find out that Lee had died. That was very helpful for Lyra, and I think it really made her mature. It is a very painful experience to see your loved ones dead. I can’t imagine what that must have felt like. She’s also leaving Pantalaimon behind. It’s a very emotional section of the show, and it’s very heavy. It has a lot of very dark themes. There’s the whole self-sabotage section. All those other elements of it just make it that much darker, but it was really, really fun to investigate.

What was the last day on set like for you guys? Who did you shoot with? How did it feel to reach the end of this? Was it much more anti-climactic than people would expect?

WILSON: We filmed stuff from episode seven, and it was over before we knew. We went in and did what we normally would do, and got into makeup and wardrobe, and we went to set. We knew it was our last day, of course. And then, at the end, they were like, “Okay, and that’s a wrap on Amir and Dafne.” It was like, “Oh, this is really happening.” I got given the knife as a present, Dafne got given the alethiometer. It was nice. The next day, we had a wrap party, and we got to properly say goodbye to some people. It’s less of a sad thing and more of being a celebration of what we’ve achieved so far. That was my approach to it.

KEEN: Same.

WILSON: And it wasn’t really emotional, in theory.

KEEN: For some people, it was.

WILSON: For some people, yeah.

Dafne, how different do you feel, personally, from who you were when you walked on set your first day, as opposed to who you were, walking off set on the last day?

KEEN: It’s really strange because it was my whole teenage years. I’ve been through everything during that show, and they’ve been with me through so many things that have happened in my life, in that time. It’s just really weird to be leaving that part of myself there. I feel like it’s really strange. I recently went to Cardiff again, and I got flashes of all the different moments that we had there, just little memories and stuff. It’s just really weird because that’s a section of our lives that’s just been left there. It’s really weird thinking that it’s over. I haven’t clocked it yet, but it’s really strange.

The last day on set was so anti-climactic. We were just filming some running around stuff, with us two, and then Ruta Gedmintas. It was us three, and it was just really chill. In terms of the content that we were filming, it was actually really relaxed, and it wasn’t a big emotional moment, or anything. We were walking around, and then suddenly, they said, “That’s a wrap with Amir and Dafne,” and it was just really weird. I got home, and I was like, “Wow, I’m done. That went really quickly.” When we started, we were like, “Oh, my god, this is gonna be so long. It’s like seven months.” And then, it went really, really quickly.

Do you guys each have a favorite scene or a favorite episode in this last season?

KEEN: I love our last scene.

WILSON: Yeah, our last scene together is nice. The Episode 8 stuff is all really good.

KEEN: I love Episode 8, to be fair.

WILSON: The Land of the Dead stuff will look really cool. As much as it was a pain to be in a dark studio all day, it will look really, really epic. And I had my friends on set to be extras, which was funny. A couple of my mates came in to be extras on set, so you’ll see them lurking about in the back of takes.

KEEN: One of them got COVID, though.

WILSON: One of them did get COVID. He filmed the whole morning with us, and then, I saw him, halfway through the day, getting ushered off. I texted him, and I was like, “What’s going on?” He texted back, “Got COVID.” I was like, “All right, then.” He’d been staying with me and everything. I was negative, thank God. We didn’t have to shut anything down.

His Dark Materials airs on Monday nights on HBO and is available to stream at HBO Max.
