Deadpool's sidekick Dopinder, played by Karan Soni, and roommate Blind Al, played by Leslie Uggams, are confirmed to return for the third movie.

Deadpool's fan-favourite characters Dopinder and Blind Al are confirmed to return for the upcoming threequel. 

Karan Soni, who plays Deadpool's taxi-driving sidekick Dopinder, and Leslie Uggams, whose character is the antihero's roommate Blind Al, have accompanied Deadpool throughout the first two movies.

Now the duo will join Ryan Reynolds in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) alongside Hugh Jackman and newest cast members Emma Corrin and Matthew Macfayden, reports Deadline on March 29.

The third Deadpool movie will be the first film of the franchise to join the MCU.

Reynolds shared the news on social media, sweetly captioning a tweet "BFF's" with accompanying heart and sword emojis. 

Reynolds and Shawn Levy are set to direct the upcoming movie and Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige will join them as producers.
