Deadpool 3: Hugh Jackman reprises his role as Wolverine

In a video posted on his social networks, Ryan Reynolds announced that his friend Hugh Jackman would put on the costume of the hero with long claws again in Deadpool 3which is scheduled for release in September 2024.

“It was so exciting to play Wolverine one last time!” said Hugh Jackman at Figaro in March 2017, on the occasion of the release of Logan directed by James Mangold. Five years after his farewell to the character he played for 17 years, the Australian actor will finally put on the costume of the hero with adamantium claws for Deadpool 3, which is scheduled for release on September 6, 2024.

In a video posted on his social networks on September 27, Ryan Reynolds, who plays the irreverent superhero Deadpool, explains that he racked his brains for several months to make this third installment – ​​after those released in 2016 and 2018 – a film “special”. “Hi everyone, we are extremely sad to have missed the D23 (a three-day gathering in mid-September during which Disney unveils its upcoming projects, editor’s note) but we are working very hard on the next movie Dead Pool for quite a while now”, he begins by explaining facing the camera, sitting on a sofa. Since Disney’s takeover of 21th Century Fox in 2019, Deadpool has been part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the opportunity to bring the character “a new depth and a new motivation, a new meaning”, adds the 45-year-old actor.

“It was an incredible challenge that forced me to dig deep inside, and I…have nothing. It’s completely empty here.” continues Ryan Reynolds pointing to his skull. “But we had an idea.” Ryan Reynolds then calls out Hugh Jackman who passes in the background: “Hey Hugh, do you want to play Wolverine one more time?”. “Of course, Ryan”then replies the person concerned, before launching I will always love you by Whitney Houston in the background, humorously subtitled “I Will Always Love Hugh“. The two friends had already crossed paths on screen in X-Men Origins: Wolverine in 2009, when Deadpool first appeared on the big screen. Since this shoot, Ryan Reynolds had repeatedly expressed his desire to replay alongside Hugh Jackman and even the death of Wolverine in the film. Logan in 2017 had not been able to make him change his mind. Rightly so, it would seem.

But as the hero with long claws and regenerative abilities dies in Loganhow can the character reappear in Deadpool 3 ? In a new video, published a few hours after the premiere, the actors of the two heroes provide some answers to this question that many fans are asking on social networks. Logan takes place in the year 2029. It’s totally different. Logan died in Logan. We don’t touch that. What happens in our film is that these two guys…”begins Ryan Reynolds before his explanations are covered by the song Wake me up before you go-go of Wham!. If the bravest could try to read the actor’s lips, the main reason that could explain this scenario pirouette is that the previous X-Men films (and therefore Logan) simply do not belong to the same universe as the one in which takes place Deadpool 3.

Directed by Shawn Levy, this third opus will therefore be the one that will bring Deadpool into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, it will be necessary to wait almost two years before seeing the two heroes reunited on the screen.
