Deadpool 3 will see Hugh Jackman return as Wolverine, release date confirmed
Deadpool 3 will see the return of Hugh Jackman as werewolf, Ryan Reynolds has confirmed in typical Ryan Reynolds fashion. The actor posted a video on his social media platform to give fans an update on the upcoming Deadpool movie. After some “soul searching,” Reynolds revealed that the best way to mark Deadpool’s first appearance in the MCU is to bring back Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine. The video ends with Wolverine’s claws appearing on Deadpool’s logo.
So it looks like Ryan Reynolds and Deadpool 3 director Shawn Levy managed to convince Hugh Jackman to bring back Wolverine for the final ride. Jackman will reprise his role as Wolverine for the first time since Logan in 2017. Deadpool 3 will also be the protagonist’s first time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe following Disney’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox in 2017.
The appearance of Hugh Jackman in Deadpool 3 is not surprising because many people associate Jackman and Wolverine compared to the previous two Deadpool movies. Reynolds and Jackman are close friends off-screen and have had an ongoing on-screen fake relationship for years.
The MCU has so far only teased about the existence of mutants. We’ve seen Patrick Stewart reprise his role as Professor X (albeit an animated series version of Professor X) in Doctor Strange in Madness’s Multiverse. Mrs. Marvel also gave a hint that Kamala Khan is a mutant. We expect more X-Men characters to appear in upcoming MCU movies and shows, with Deadpool 3 expected to introduce mutants in the MCU in a much larger way.
The video also revealed the Deadpool 3 release date. The film will release worldwide on September 6, 2024.
