Deadpool 3: Ryan Reynolds Confirms Blind Al Actor Return

Ryan Reynolds confirms the return of one Deadpool character for Deadpool 3, as Leslie Uggams' Blind Al is coming back. Marvel Studios and Disney are continuing the Deadpool franchise after the incredible success of the first two movies made by 20th Century Fox. Plans for Deadpool 3 have been in the works for a few years now with Ryan Reynolds returning to star as Wade Wilson in an R-rated movie set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The sequel took a big step forward recently when Shawn Levy signed on to direct.

With Shawn Levy directing and Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese returning to write the latest draft of the script, Deadpool 3's creative team is finally in place. This means that casting announcements should be on the horizon. So far, Ryan Reynolds is the only confirmed cast member for Deadpool 3, as fans have been left to wonder if others from the prior two movies will return. Domino (Zazie Beetz), Cable (Josh Brolin), and Vanessa (Morena Baccarin) are just some of the characters many hope will return.

Now, Ryan Reynolds has seemingly confirmed that Deadpool 3 is bringing back someone from the past two movies. In response to a tweet from Blind Al actress Leslie Uggams, Reynolds said, "Thank you, Leslie. See you soon ⚔️⚔️⚔️." The star's mention that he'll see her soon and the inclusion of three crossed sword emojis (a reference to Deadpool's duel katanas) points directly toward Uggams returning as Blind Al in Deadpool 3.

Leslie Uggams had small roles in both Deadpool and Deadpool 2, where she helped turn Wade's elderly blind roommate into a fan-favorite character. It is not clear what size of a role she'll have in Deadpool 3, but her return has major implications. Instead of Marvel Studios potentially shying away from using the franchise's supporting cast as Deadpool joins the MCU, it seems the threequel could keep familiar faces around. If Reynolds is ready to confirm Blind Al's return, there is a chance more returning cast members are announced soon.

Regardless of which former Deadpool cast members return for Deadpool 3, it will be fascinating to see how Marvel Studios handles it. Deadpool and his friends could all join the MCU through the multiverse and have a new universe to explore. It's also possible Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool will be the only one to transfer to a different universe and find variants of Blind Al and others who already exist in the MCU. In any case, Blind Al's Deadpool 3 return should provide plenty of optimism that Cable, Domino, Vanessa, the X-Force, Negasonic Teenage Warhead (Brianna Hildebrand), and others will come back.
