    With Deadpool & Wolverine clawing its way to theaters in July, excitement is at a fever pitch for this multiversal Marvel mashup. The film promises a wild ride with Wade Wilson (Deadpool) and Logan (Wolverine) facing off against the villainous Cassandra Nova.

    While whispers hint at cameos from some of Fox's X-Men villains joining Nova's ranks, rumors also suggest appearances by heroic mutants! Here are a few X-Men who deserve a slice of the multiversal action:

    Bobby Drake (Iceman) might be the coolest X-Man who never got to be truly cool in the movies. Despite his impressive ice powers and potential to become an Omega-level mutant, Iceman stayed stuck in the background of the X-Men film trilogy.

    But wait! With Deadpool & Wolverine tearing through the multiverse, could Iceman finally get his chance to shine? Here's why:

    • Underrated Awesomeness: Fans love Iceman, but the movies never gave him the spotlight. Deadpool & Wolverine could be the perfect platform to showcase his frosty abilities.

    • Rematch Time?: Pyro, Iceman's fiery foe, is confirmed for the film. Could this set up a long-awaited clash between fire and ice?

    • Omega-Level Potential: The movies hinted at Iceman's immense power. Deadpool & Wolverine could explore this further, making him a force to be reckoned with.


    Rogue: Time to Recharge in the Multiverse?

    Rogue, a mutant mainstay in the X-Men universe, deserves a chance to redeem herself on the big screen. Played by Anna Paquin in the Fox X-Men films, Rogue grappled with her powers – both a blessing and a curse. Unable to touch anyone without draining their life force, she yearned for connection. Eventually, she learned to control her abilities, even stealing the powers of other mutants.

    Fans were left fuming by Rogue's conclusion in X-Men: The Last Stand, where she took the mutant cure. Though the "Rogue Cut" of X-Men: Days of Future Past offered a glimmer of hope, its canonicity remains murky.

    Deadpool & Wolverine's multiversal playground presents the perfect opportunity to:

    • Give Rogue Closure: Let fans finally know Rogue's fate. Did she keep her powers? Did she find a way to live a normal life?

    • Unleash Her Potential: Rogue's power absorption is a wild card, making her a valuable asset in any fight. Imagine her stealing Deadpool's healing factor or Wolverine's adamantium claws!

    • Redeem Her Arc: The Fox films never fully explored Rogue's emotional journey. Deadpool & Wolverine could delve deeper, showcasing her struggles and triumphs.


    X-23: From Clone to MCU Legacy?

    Laura Kinney, aka X-23, stole hearts in Logan as Wolverine's fierce and determined offspring. Created from his DNA, she possesses the same claws and healing factor, making her a formidable fighter.

    With Hugh Jackman's Wolverine clawing his way back in Deadpool & Wolverine, here's why X-23 deserves to join the fray:

    • Continue Her Story: Don't just reboot her! Pick up where Logan left off. Show how X-23 grapples with her father's death and the weight of his legacy.

    • Bridge the Gaps: X-23's inclusion could seamlessly connect the Fox X-Men universe to the budding MCU mutant world.

    • Future Avenger?: X-23's fierce loyalty and unwavering spirit make her a perfect candidate for a future Avengers team. Imagine her alongside established heroes!


    Jean Grey: Phoenix Rising (Maybe) in the Multiverse?

    Jean Grey, the powerful telekinetic and telepathic mutant, is a cornerstone of the X-Men. Famke Janssen brought her to life in the earlier Fox films, while Sophie Turner portrayed her in the more recent ones. Jean's connection to the Phoenix Force, a cosmic entity granting immense power, has been a central part of her story.

    While Fox's take on the Phoenix saga wasn't universally loved, rumors swirl that Jean Grey might grace the screen once more in Deadpool & Wolverine. Here's why her return could be epic:

    • The Phoenix Potential: Jean's untapped power, fueled by the Phoenix Force, could be a game-changer in the fight against Cassandra Nova.

    • Redemption Arc: Give Jean a chance to shine beyond the Phoenix. Showcase her telepathic and telekinetic prowess as a valuable asset to the team.

    • Closure for Famke Janssen?: If the rumors are true, this could be Famke Janssen's final farewell to the character, giving fans a chance to say goodbye.

    Deadpool's comedic chaos and Wolverine's battle-hardened wisdom, Jean Grey could find her niche in this multiversal adventure. Will the Phoenix rise again? Only time (and box office results) will tell!
