Hugh Jackman Returning as Wolverine in Deadpool 3 with Ryan Reynolds

Deadpool will become a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe on September 6 2024, and actor Ryan Reynolds is teasing a long-awaited reunion with his old pal Wolverine.

Reynolds appeared in a surprise teaser video on his Twitter account, where he said he was “very sad” to have missed D23, where there had been no news regarding Deadpool 3.

Shortly after, Hugh Jackman appears in the background and Reynolds asks him, “Hey, Hugh. You wanna play Wolverine one more time?” to which he replied, “Yeah. Sure, Ryan,”.

Jackman last played Wolverine in James Mangold’s R-rated Logan in 2016. Since Wolverine famously died at the end of the movie, Jackman has frequently said that it was his final performance as the clawed mutant. Jackman played Wolverine in nine different movies, and Logan served as the most ideal possible send-off. But for fans, finally seeing Jackman and Reynolds together in their superhero roles will provide a sense of closure.

Deadpool 3 will be directed by Shawn Levy, who is known for films such as Free Guy, The Adam Project, and Night at the Museum.

“I’ve had to really search my soul on this one,” Reynolds says sarcastically in the announcement video for Deadpool 3. “His first appearance in the MCU obviously needs to feel special. We need to stay true to the character, find new depth, new motivation, new meaning. Every Deadpool needs to stand out and stand apart. It’s been an incredible challenge that has forced me to reach down deep inside and I… have nothing. Yeah… Just completely empty up here and terrifying. But we did have one idea.”

Now that Disney has acquired the assets of 21st Century Fox and the rights to the X-Men, Deadpool 3 will be Wolverine’s MCU debut. Fans have been wondering how the present Earth-616 will introduce mutants, and Deadpool 3 will undoubtedly take a significant step in that direction.
