Note: This article may contain commentary or the author's opinion.

Everyone’s favorite wolverine played by none other than Hugh Jackman will be making a long-awaited return to Deadpool 3, according to Ryan Reynolds who reported the news on his Twitter page on Tuesday evening. Deadpool 3 additionally has an expected drop date of Sept. 6, 2024.

“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 says in the video, referencing the D23 Expo in early September. “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 and find new depth, motivation, and 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. And I…I have nothing. Yeah, just completely empty up here. And terrifying. But we did have one idea.”

He continued in his famous Ryan banter that we all know and love him for by saying he didn’t have any ideas about how to continue the series, but hints at one idea that they collectively had. He then turns to his side and begins talking to another person who is not in the frame yet.

“Hey, Hugh, you want to play Wolverine one more time?” Reynolds asks as Jackman strolls by behind the scenes.

“Yeah, sure, Ryan,” Jackman answers. The video closes with a classic by Whitney Houston and in a funny dad joke-like fashion depicts “I will always love Hugh” along with a message about the Deadpool 3 movie “Coming Hughn”. The humorous witty video can be viewed below.

Shawn Levy, who made “Free Guy” and “The Adam Project” with Reynolds, is working together in directing Deadpool 3, which will formally join the Marvel Universe after Disney’s acquisition of Twentieth Century Fox. Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who wrote the initial two Deadpool films, got to return to compose the third. Reese has recently affirmed that Deadpool 3 will remain R-rated, even inside the family accommodating MCU. – Parents, this is your official warning! The movie Deadpool 3 will be R-rated, meaning not suitable for Junior who is only five years old!

The last time X-Men fans saw Jackman as Wolverine was in 2016’s Logan, coordinated by James Mangold. Wolverine unexpectedly died toward the finish of the film, and Jackman has expressed over and again that the film was his last curtain call on the job. So, it’s up in the air and anyone’s guess as to how he’ll show up in Deadpool 3. However, Deadpool is most popular for over and over breaking the fourth wall — on film and in the comics — and as Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige as of late said, “Anything’s possible in the multiverse.”

Reynolds and Jackman have a long superhero history together. The Deadpool star originally showed up as the hero in 2009’s generally panned X-Men Beginnings: Wolverine, which was the first X-Men film to zero in on Jackman’s character. That form of Deadpool, in any case, had his mouth sewn shut and didn’t highlight his famous red-and-dark ensemble. Quite a while later, Reynolds got another go-round as the joking assassin in an actual, R-rated Deadpool film.

The Deadpool films are the top-netting X-Men titles ever, each procuring more than $780 million around the world. The initial two movies, which appeared in 2016 and 2018, separately, were delivered by Twentieth Century Fox before Disney gained the studio.
