Deadpool 3 Gets A Release Date And A Hugh Jackman Casting Announcement
Ryan Reynolds, the actor, has revealed the release date for Deadpool 3 as well as the stunning news that Hugh Jackman will reprise his role as Wolverine.
Deadpool 3 now has an official release date, as well as an unexpected new co-star to join actor Ryan Reynolds. Reynolds joked about the protracted effort to get the proper perspective for the Merc with a Mouth's debut feature as part of the MCU in a video uploaded on his Twitter account.
It's a training montage in which Reynolds describes the hours and soul searching he'd spent in developing the idea for the upcoming film before admitting that he had "nothing." Then as he states they had "one idea," Hugh Jackman walks across the screen behind him. Reynolds asks him if he'd be willing to play Wolverine one more time, to which the actor replies, "Yeah, sure, Ryan." Along with the surprise reveal of Jackman's return, the video shows that Deadpool 3 comes out on Sept. 6, 2024.
Jackman initially played Wolverine in 2000's X-Men, then in X2 and X-Men: Last Stand. His fame as the character led to three standalone films, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, The Wolverine, and Logan, the latter of which is widely considered to be one of the best superhero films of all time.
Jackman also appeared in the prequel trilogy, making cameo appearances in X-Men: First Class and X-Men: Apocalypse, as well as a key part in the critically acclaimed X-Men: Days of Future Past. He also made a brief appearance at the end of Deadpool 2 in 2018, when the eponymous character travels back in time to murder the wildly-lambasted version of himself from X-Men Origins, also portrayed by Reynolds.
Reynolds' casting in the 2009 picture delighted fans, who thought the actor was well suited to the character. However, the character's scripting, particularly the removal of his lips at the end – something Reynolds joked about on Twitter while announcing the Wolverine news – upset people who had hoped to see the famous figure on the screen. The delayed creation of Deadpool 3 disturbed numerous fans, as it has been four years since the second picture with little information regarding the project. Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick characterized writing the Deadpool script like a "comfortable old sweater," stating that Disney and Marvel had given them encouragement to "keep the tone and vision" they had for the third feature. Despite much concern, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige affirmed that the third picture will keep the series' R rating in order to stay faithful to the character.
