Leslie Uggams has been appreciated for her work in the Deadpool franchise, even though the actress had small parts her character was loved. With the announcement of the third part, fans have been left to wonder if others from the prior two movies will return.
But we think we’ve got the answer; 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 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.
Thank you, Leslie. See you soon ⚔️⚔️⚔️ https://t.co/1nQ9oeN4Wb— Ryan Reynolds ( VancityReynolds) March 27, 2022Advertisement
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.
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.
