The movie will also be released in September 2024.
Fans have been eager to learn more about Deadpool 3, which will be the third installment in the superhero franchise starring Ryan Reynolds and feature the MCU debut of the Merc with a Mouth. There didn’t seem to be any updates on the movie during Disney’s D23 celebration, and there appeared to be a long wait before anything new was revealed about the endeavor. However, just two weeks after the incident, actor Reynolds used his official Twitter account to give more than anyone could have possibly imagined: Hugh Jackman’s return to his much-loved role as Wolverine was also revealed, along with the confirmation that the movie’s September 6, 2024, release date had been chosen!
The tweet included a Reynolds video discussing how Deadpool 3 missed D23. The caption read, “Hard keeping my mouth sewn shut about this one,” alluding to his less-than-stellar role debut in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine as the titular character. The video featured a montage of Reynolds discussing the reflection and development that went into the movie because the character’s MCU debut required something special. Reynolds declares that, after much deliberation and thought, he has nothing. There is only one thought. Jackman ascends the stairs in the background as Reynolds relaxes on his couch. Hey Hugh, would you like to play Wolverine again? “Yeah, sure, Ryan,” Jackman responds, appearing bored. After a cover version of Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You,” in which the word “You” has been changed to “Hugh,” the Deadpool logo appears, is pierced by three Adamantium claws, and the September release date is announced.
After making his screen debut as Wolverine in the first live-action X-Men movie in 2000, Jackman has played the character numerous times and has become synonymous with it. After the critically acclaimed James Mangold movie from 2017, Jackman decided to leave the role. The star appears to be planning to mount up once more, much like the Westerns that inspired the Oscar-nominated movie. Jackman will make his MCU debut with the titular Wade Wilson when he appears in Deadpool 3. However, it is currently unknown what the size that his role in the upcoming film will be.
Jackman, who joins a cast that already features Reynolds and Leslie Uggams, is the only other confirmed casting for the upcoming project. The script for Deadpool 3 is written by Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick, and Shawn Levy. The Adam Project, which recently debuted on Netflix, was directed by the latter, who had previously worked with Reynolds on Free Guy.
The release of Deadpool 3 is scheduled for September 6, 2024. Below is a link to Jackman’s return as Wolverine’s Twitter post, including the release date, logo, and announcement.
