MCU is reportedly opting for the Endgame route for the new Wolverine variant.

“It’s gonna be a same situation as Gamora”: Dafne Keen’s X-23 is Reportedly Following an Endgame Storyline in Deadpool & Wolverine According to Insider

From Marvel cameos to Wade Wilson breaking the fourth wall, and Wolverine dropping F-bombs, the second trailer had something for everyone, with more fans now joining the threequel hypetrain. The new trailer for Deadpool & Wolverine also gave us a proper glimpse of Hugh Jackman’s Logan in his classic yellow spandex, who looks better than ever as Wolverine.

But despite a plethora of references, there was no sign of Dafne Keen’s X-23 from Logan in the trailer. However, per Insider, not only will she be incorporated into the story, but she’ll reportedly be the one to break the news of her Wolverine’s sacrifice to this variant.

One major problem that some fans had with Wolverine’s return to the MCU was the ending of Logan, which gave a deserved send-off to the most beloved member of the X-Men. But from the trailer, it’s evident MCU is not interfering with the iconic ending, instead, we’ll follow a new variant, who apparently blames himself for not being able to save his universe.

If it turns out to be the case, this will be similar to the route the MCU opted for Gamora in Endgame, whose previous self was notified of her future self’s sacrifice in Infinity War.

Moreover, considering how heavy the ending of Logan was, Dafne Keen’s X-23 breaking her story to this Wolverine will definitely make for a strong moment. This could also serve as a catalyst in this Wolverine’s journey, as knowing about the other variant’s sacrifice might finally push him to get over his past failure and step up to save the multiverse.

Considering Brown had earned universal acclaim following her work in Stranger Things, which debuted a year prior to Logan, she tuned in to audition in front of Hugh Jackman and James Mangold. While she failed to earn the gig, the Enola Holmes star described her audition for the film as her best to date.
