Benedict Cumberbatch Explores the Potential Origin of Portals in ‘Deadpool & Wolverine’: “Maybe It’s an Acolyte of Mine”

Benedict Cumberbatch Explains the Possible Origin of Portal in ‘Deadpool Wolverine Maybe Its an Acolyte of Mine

About a month ago, the trailer for ‘Deadpool & Wolverine’ was released, sending fans into a frenzy of excitement. The trailer not only showcased but also confirmed several cameos and variants set to appear in the movie. It included references to some iconic moments from the comics, and notably, featured Deadpool & Wolverine using Strange’s Sling Ring, presumably to make an escape.

The Sling Ring is a mystical accessory worn on two fingers, granting its user the ability to create dimensional gateways to other locations or even different dimensions. Originating specifically for the MCU, it is primarily utilized by Doctor Strange and other practitioners of mystical arts. The question arises: how did Deadpool acquire such a powerful artifact?

Despite the resurgence of numerous fan theories, Cumberbatch, known for his portrayal of Doctor Strange, was prompted to share his thoughts on the origin of the portal. His response was laced with humor:

I don’t know … Maybe it’s an acolyte of mine or someone I’ve thrown out there to do my dirty laundry.

When the trailer initially debuted, rumors surfaced offering a plausible explanation for how Deadpool obtained the Sling Ring. According to speculation, Cassandra Nova herself pilfered it from a variant of Doctor Strange who held the title of Sorcerer Supreme in that particular reality.

While many fans anticipated Wong’s appearance in the film, this rumored explanation appears more feasible, especially considering Cassandra’s history in the comics, which is rife with bloodshed, violence, and genocide.
