When someone talks about a “hit man movie,” or a film about a contract killer, certain images spring to mind: a lonely soul, hollowed out on the inside and waiting across a street with a sniper rifle; a merciless killer who takes no pleasure in life while dealing out cold, calculated professionalism in his trade; […]

Although its hard to feel bad for noted movie star, mobile phone magnate, gin baron Ryan Reynolds, there is a bit of irony to the fact that the handsome actor’s breakout role forces him to play a man with a mangled body. Fortunately for Reynolds, the Merc With a Mouth’s first adventure in the MCU involves the hit franchise’s conceit de jour, the multiverse.

So when he and Wolverine, played once again by Hugh Jackman, but in comics/cartoon accurate yellow spandex, come to the MCU in this summer’s Deadpool 3, they’ll be doing so alongside a bunch of variants. And at least one of those Wade Wilson variants will be very handsome.

In a series of set photos leaked on Twitter, we see Reynolds unmasked and back in his Deadpool costume, but this time, his character sports perfect skin and flowing locks, gathered in a man bun.

However, it looks like Handsome Deadpool doesn’t get to monopolize all the cooing the audience will certainly do. Because he’ll be one-upped by one of the most long-awaited Deadpool Variants, Dogpool.

Judging by the brighter colors and Hemsworth-ready hair of Handsome Deadpool, we might guess that he’s the MCU version of Deadpool, a PG-13 take on Wade Wilson who will toss out a quip when dealing with an emotional moment. Given his haircut, this may also be Ronin-pool aka Watari, a samurai variation of Deadpool.

In the comics, both Ronin-pool and Dogpool are members of the Deadpool Corps, a multiversal group of Deadpool’s who fight together to do… Deadpool things. Tell inappropriate and self-aware jokes, mostly. The Deadpool Corps includes a teen variant called Kidpool, a zombie version called Headpool, a version with a beard made of bees named Beard of Beespool, and the most popular member, Lady Deadpool.

Although there has been much speculation that Lady Deadpool and Kidpool will make appearances in the film, the above pictures are the only confirmation we’ve had thus far of multiversal shenanigans. Of course, there’s always room for even more Deadpools when we’re talking about infinite alternate universes.

Deadpool 3 will reportedly involve the Time Variance Authority, having been thrown into realignment by the events of Loki‘s second season, recruiting a multiversal team to fight some big bad (probably not Kang). They recruit Deadpool, but Deadpool being Deadpool, he not only picks up Wolverine, but also runs the TVA across a bunch of other people in the 20th Century Fox Marvel Universe. Rumors suggest that members of the Fox X-Men will appear, including James Marsden as Cyclops, as well as Ben Affleck‘s Daredevil and Jennifer Garner’s Elektra.

By the end of the movie, Deadpool will presumably join in the MCU. What this means for the other characters he meets, we still don’t know. But unfortunately for Reynolds, we can probably bet that Handsome Deadpool isn’t going to make the cut.

Deadpool 3 will hit theaters on July 26. In the meantime, check out our guide to all the Marvel movies and TV series coming in 2024.
