Hugh Jackman will enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe alongside Ryan Reynolds in “Deadpool 3,” which is due out in theaters Sept. 6, 2024.
Jackman first played Wolverine – a mutant with regenerative powers – in 2000’s X-Men, and appeared in multiple films as the character.
Hugh Jackman, who was said to have retired his Wolverine character after 2017’s Logan, is actually back to play this character “one more time” according to Ryenolds.
This news was shared by Ryan Reynolds, through a video a video called “Deadpool Update” that he posted online.
In the video, Ryan aplogizes for missing the D23, and explains why.
“Hey everyone, we’re extremely sad to have missed D23, but we’ve been working very hard on the next ‘Deadpool’ film for a good long while now,” Reynolds said in the video, seated on his couch. “I’ve had to really search my soul on this one. His first appearance in the MCU obviously needs to feel special. We need to stay true to the character, find new depth, motivation, 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.”
Reynolds followed up on September 28 with a video called “Deadpool Update, Part Hugh,” in which he keeps the first video’s Modern Family aesthetic alive with Jackman on the couch next to him, mainly explaining that Wolverine is alive because “Logan takes place in 2029 — totally separate thing.”
