Deadpool 3 is in the works, and unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that the third film in the Marvel franchise will star Hugh Jackman in his return as Wolverine. If you remember, this was pretty convincing from both Ryan Reynolds and Marvel. After saying “no” countless times, Jackman finally agreed to return.
“How do I classify it? Ten being really close, zero being reality, we’re zero, we’re opposites, we hate each other,” Jackman said. The Empire Movie Podcast. “I’m just speaking from my perspective, Logan is frustrated with him, wants to be a million miles away from him or wants to punch him in the head. Unfortunately, he can’t be a million miles away from it in this movie, so I’m probably going to hit him in the head a lot.”
This makes a lot of sense considering Wolverine has always hated Wade in the comics. It was always a hate-hate relationship. The only times Deadpool and Wolverine got along was when they were gutting baddies together.
One of the biggest fan complaints was that Wolverine died Logan. And best of all the film directed by James Mangold sent Logan off respectfully and beautifully. This ended a 17-year run in which Jackman played the renegade X-Men. However, it looks like Jackman has jumped back into a place that actually fits with the current run of Marvel movies and their many multiverses.
“All because of this device [Multiverses] have in the Marvel world to move around the timeline, now we can go back because, you know, it’s science, so I don’t have to mess with Logan timeline, which was important to me. And I think probably for the fans as well,”
This will also be the first time Jackman gets to work with Marvel’s Fiege half. He was caught in Sony/Marvel limbo during his run as the character. With Disney’s purchase of Marvel, we can finally bring all the characters. So this will most likely be an interesting reinvention of Logan. We can’t wait to see that combined with the fact that we will Wolf Man and dead pool together at last.
Deadpool 3 arrives in theaters starting November 8, 2024.
