2024 seems to be the year, when the Marvel Cinematic Universe can finally live up to the name after the appalling setback last year. The fate of Marvel was restored by the miniseries ‘Echo‘, which set up the platform for ‘Dareveil: Born Again’, promising the return of the brutal combat Bullseye. The anticipated ‘Deadpool 3’ featuring the return of Hugh Jackman reprising the mantle of Wolverine is also in favor of Marvel. If MCU plays its cards right, all the above-mentioned projects will lay the foundation for ‘Black Panther 3‘ introducing a new element, stronger than Vibranium.
Vibranium has been an important plot point in the MCU since ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’, but it wasn’t until ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ and ‘Black Panther’ that its significance was truly explored. But now a stronger element might make its debut.
‘Black Panther 3’ Can Introduce Adamantium
After the untimely demise of the Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman, Marvel Studios refused to recast King T’Challa, but this does not stop the franchise from jumping in on the third installment of ‘Black Panther’. The film is expected to follow the continuation of the story arc of the second installment, with Letitia Wright’s Shuri in the lead and featuring King T’Challa’s grown-up son.
But with the introduction of Bullseye in ‘Daredevil: Born Again’, Marvel will feature Adamantium, the metal is also connected with Wolverine. But since the multiversal saga has begun, Adamantium will be an intrinsic part of these projects. ‘Black Panther Three’ might be setting up for a potential global arms race with the involvement of a metal alongside Vibranium.
Since Wakanda’s Vibranium is shown as a source of competition amongst countries in ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’, the substance intrinsically is connected to Wolverine and Bullseye could receive similar treatment. A potential arc for ‘Black Panther 3’, may see a global conflict translate into nations hungry for both Vibranium and adamantium as sought-after substances to increase and enhance their arsenal of weapons.
Adamantium’s Connection To Wolverine
Adamantium is frequently associated with Wolverine, who will make a comeback in ‘Deadpool 3’ along with Ryan Reynolds’ Wade Wilson. In the comics and Fox’s ‘X-Men’ Universe, Wolverine’s skeleton is laced with the nigh-unbreakable adamantium. It’s because of this he could have blades for claws. With his upcoming inclusion and Bullseye’s comic book history, Marvel’s strongest alloy’s incorporation in the MCU seems inevitable.

What Is The Relation Between Adamtium And Bullseye?
Wilson Bethel’s portrayal of Benjamin Poindexter instantly made him a fan favorite, the former FBI agent was manipulated and puppeteered by Wilson Fisk to impersonate Daredevil. However, the ultimate confrontation resulted in Kingpin shattering Dex’s spine, leaving him paralyzed. The comics’ explanation for the vertebrae’s breakage and the material utilized to reinforce it are the only differences between the source material and the series.
Poindexter’s spine was replaced with Cogmium Steel in the Netflix series. However, in the comics, it was one of Marvel’s strongest metal alloys, Adamantium. Although Adamantium was introduced along with Wolverine, the alloy became an integral part of Bullseye and the future of Adamantium may lie in the hands of ‘Blank Panther 3’.
