But the buzz extends beyond that. Toad, a different iconic Marvel villain, might be making a big-screen comeback in Deadpool 3 as reported by @DanielRPK. He goes by the name Mortimer Toynbee in comic books and has some extraordinary skills, like the ability to leap enormous distances, spit slime, and have a tongue that can reach a length of up to 13 feet. Toad has a fascinating past in the X-Men series, and fans are anticipating his reported return in the film.

History of Toad in Marvel

One of the first Marvel mutants, Toad, made his appearance in the X-Men 4 issue, which was co-written by the great Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. He was a founding member of Magneto’s Brotherhood of Evil Mutants in the comic books, a group dedicated to overthrowing Homo sapiens’ control and establishing a mutant-run society. Toad’s beginnings, however, took a tragic turn when he fell prey to the Black Womb Project; this tragedy marked the event that drew him into Magneto’s circle.

Toad’s portrayal in the X-Men films experienced a dramatic change. Toad was no longer a clownish figure in the first X-Men movie; instead, he posed a dangerous threat. His new set of abilities included the capacity to stick to walls, throw up green slime, and have a long prehensile tongue. Toad was transformed from a jest to a serious antagonist in this new interpretation of the character, and it took a lot of hard effort to defeat him.

In X-Men: Days of Future Past, Toad makes a second appearance as a soldier who had been saved from Vietnam by Mystique. Even without green skin, he still displayed his distinctive prehensile tongue.  And fans are giddy with anticipation over Toad’s possible comeback in Deadpool 3.
