Where Will Wolverine Be Before Deadpool 3 in the MCU? Find Out in X-Men ’97!

Where Will Wolverine Be Before Deadpool 3 in the MCU?

Amidst the buzz around Hugh Jackman’s reprisal of Wolverine in Deadpool 3, it’s worth noting that the character will make an appearance prior to the film’s release.

However, Wolverine enthusiasts are currently facing an extended wait as the production of Deadpool 3 has been put on hold due to the ongoing Hollywood strikes involving writers and actors.

While there is no official announcement regarding a delay in Deadpool 3’s release beyond the initial reschedule from September to November 2024 (later moved even earlier to May 2024), the third installment has been excluded from Disney’s list of releases for 2024.

Where Will Wolverine Be Before Deadpool 3 in the MCU?

The forthcoming animated series X-Men ’97 will feature Wolverine as portrayed by the MCU.

Originally slated for release in Fall 2023, the show will now premiere on Disney+ in early 2024. Building on the legacy of the beloved ’90s animated series X-Men: The Animated Series, X-Men ’97 will feature many of the same cast members, including Cal Dodd as Wolverine.

The show’s title, Uncanny X-Men, is a nod to the original series. Wolverine will retain his signature gruffness, toughness, and fighting skills, as well as his trademark catchphrase “Bub.”

His voice, mannerisms, and suit will be instantly recognizable to fans of the X-Men franchise, regardless of whether they are familiar with the character from the comics, animation, or live-action adaptations.

The Bright Future of the MCU’s X-Men

Wolverine is the sole X-Men character currently confirmed for upcoming animated and live-action projects. However, with Disney’s acquisition of Fox and the ensuing transfer of X-Men rights, the team and concept of mutants are expected to make their way into the MCU soon.

Mutants are beginning to appear in various forms, with Professor X set to make an appearance in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and both Ms. Marvel and Namor being confirmed as mutants.

It is highly probable that the X-Men’s integration into the MCU will be linked to Deadpool 3, especially if rumors surrounding “Deadpool Kills the Fox Marvel Universe” prove to be true.

Speculation surrounds the long-term casting of Wolverine in the MCU, as Hugh Jackman hinted that he may not be returning to the character. Nevertheless, his confirmed role in the MCU places him ahead of fan favorites such as Storm, Rogue, and Magneto.

While the identity of the cast remains unknown, X-Men ’97 is set to debut in early 2024 and will feature a host of beloved characters, including Wolverine, Cyclops, and more.
