  • James Marsden’s appearance near the Deadpool & Wolverine set sparked speculation about his return as Cyclops.
  • Marsden may have hinted at a possible role in the film but was reluctant to give a definitive answer.
  • Marvel’s preference for tight-lipped stars may suggest Marsden’s return, as he called the topic a “Pandora’s box.”



James Marsden has responded to speculation about his potential return as Cyclops in the upcoming MCU movie Deadpool & Wolverine. Marsden previously played Scott Summers aka Cyclops in Fox’s X-Men movie franchise. Marsden last appeared briefly in X-Men: Days of Future Past, and there hasn’t been any official announcement about his return to the role. However, his proximity to the Deadpool & Wolverine set has led to speculation that Marsden will be one of the film’s many cameos.

Marsden recently appeared alongside former Batman Michael Keaton on The Playlist. During the discussion, Marsden was asked about him potentially appearing in Deadpool & Wolverine as he had been spotted near the film’s sets. Marsden said he was nearby finishing up work on the upcoming Sonic 3 movie, but seemed reluctant to discuss Deadpool in detail. Marsden’s comments can be seen below:

“I keep hearing about that. I can’t walk down the street without someone asking me so evidently there’s a lot of chatter about that. It’d be fun. […] We just wrapped [Sonic 3] actually. We were near the Deadpool stages up there in Pinewood actually. […] Yeah, this is a little bit of a Pandora’s box.”

Marsden calling the topic of Deadpool & Wolverine a “Pandora’s box” and his reluctance to give a definitive answer might suggest that he will be returning. After all, Marvel likes their stars to stay tight-lipped about spoilers.
