Walker is cute because he doesn’t keep sending me pictures of Deadpool so subtly. He gives me casting ideas very openly. I’m just saying that Ryan and I both love Walker, and we feel like we met him during this magical time between childhood and adolescence.

Who could play Walker Scobell in Deadpool 3?
Thanks to his well-received turn in his acting debut, many have already fancasted The Adam Project‘s Walker Scobell for various roles in Deadpool 3. One of the most popular ideas put forward is that of Kidpool, a younger version of the iconic Merc with a Mouth introduced as part of the Deadpool Corps comic strip alongside Dogpool and Squirrelpool, who were all brought together to defeat the cosmic entity consciousness. Given Scobell’s passion for the Deadpool franchise and love to perform with Reynolds, the idea of the Adam Project star taking on a younger version of the hero would be a fun and very self-confident character extension.

However, with Levy showing his interest in bringing The Adam Project‘s Walker Scobell back for the movie, and filming on Percy Jackson and the Olympians about halfway through, the timing could be perfect for the two actors to reunite. In the meantime, the public can revisit their first outing with The Adam Project streaming on Netflix now.
