Deadpool 3 will see Hugh Jackman return as Wolverine ‘one more time’


Ryan Reynolds Teases Hugh Jackman’s Return As Wolverine In ‘Deadpool 3’ Hugh Jackman is set to reprise his role as Wolverine in the upcoming “Deadpool 3” film.

The merc with the mouth has returned – and this time he’s bringing back a legend of the X-Men franchise, with Hugh Jackman officially confirmed to reprise the role of Wolverine for the next Deadpool film.

In true Deadpool fashion, a video put out by Reynolds’ official Twitter (opens in new tab) account has the actor throwing shade at the character’s portrayal way back in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine. With references to the mercenary’s mouth being sewn shut and an apology for missing D23, Reynolds ends the video by asking Jackman if he’d like to return as Wolverine, to which the Australian actor nonchalantly replies “Yeah, sure.”

The 45-year-old then explains that, although they’ve been working on the film for a long time now, they’ve hit a snag and are completely out of ideas on how to invigorate the mercenary for the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

“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, find new depth, motivation, meaning. Every Deadpool needs to stand out and stand apart.
