Hugh Jackman will return as Wolverine in ‘Deadpool 3’
So remember when Hugh Jackman last played Wolverine in Logan and it was supposed to be a big departure as a character?
So it turned out to be a big load, nonsense.
Not that fans are going to complain when they hear this news: Ryan Reynolds has announced that Dead Pool 3 – the first one dead Pool Marvel film set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe – will be too feature the return of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. In typical dead Pool fashion, Reynolds broke the news in a Twitter video where he confessed that after working on the next film for a long time, “I’ve got nothing… just completely empty here, and terrifying.”
“But we had an idea,” Reynolds joked as Hugh Jackman scanned the background of the frame. “Do you want to play Wolverine one more time?”
“Yeah sure Ryan,” Jackman mutters.
Well, that’s about the most understated way to announce one of the greatest comic book movies in history.
It’s been five years since Jackman played Wolverine in Logan and four years since Reynolds played Deadpool in Deadpool 2. Jackman first played his character in 2000, when he filled in at the last minute for the role of originally cast actor, Dougray Scott. (Scott was busy shooting Mission: Impossible 2.) By the time Dead Pool 3 fate, Jackman will have played Wolverine for a quarter of a century, which is basically an unprecedented race for an actor to be connected to a single superhero.
Although the movie doesn’t have an official title yet, they revealed the movie’s release date. Dead Pool 3 is set to open in theaters on September 6, 2024.
