Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds has confirmed that Hugh Jackman will be returning to his role as Wolverine one last time and will be featured in Deadpool 3. Reynolds also revealed the release date for Deadpool 3 and it looks like we're in for a long wait, as the movie is now expected to premiere in theatres on September 6, 2024.
Reynolds revealed Hugh Jackman's involvement and the movie's release date in typical Ryan Reynolds fashion. In a video on his personal Twitter account, Reynolds talk about how he's been struggling for ideas now that Deadpool is officially in the MCU. After telling fans he did have "one idea," he very casually ask Jackman who walks past in the background if he'd like to play Wolverine again to which he replies "Yeah, sure, Ryan."
The last time we saw Hugh Jackman playing Wolverine was in the 2017 movie Logan, which I am about to heavily spoil so consider this your first and only warning. Those who have watched Logan will know that Wolverine actually dies in an act of self-sacrifice at the end, making his appearance in Deadpool 3 all the more confusing. Granted, Logan isn't actually part of the MCU, so it's possible the movie could just be completely retconned in favor of bringing Jackman's Wolverine back officially.
Whatever the case may be, at least we can be relatively comfortable with the fact that Disney's acquisition of Fox won't be effecting the raunchiness or levels of gore of the franchise too much. It was actually revealed a few monhts ago by a screenwriter on Deadpool 3 that Disney is actually "very supportive" of the movie's R rating, so we can still expect plenty of crude jokes, decapitations, and sexual innuendos when Reynolds and Jackman don their suits yet again in a couple of years.
