What a great news for fans of Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine as the iconic X-Men character returns to the big screen in Deadpool 3! Ryan Reynolds announced the good news on Twitter and said the film will be released on September 2024.

It has been a long time coming for Deadpool and Wolverine to finally work together in one frame. This collaboration has been teased several times in the past, especially at the end of the second installment of Deadpool. Reynolds first appeared as Deadpool in the 2009 X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which embarrassingly did not give justice to the character. The 2016 Deadpool film is Reynold’s redemption era when the movie, despite its R-rating, earned $782.6 million worldwide.

How Are They Bringing Wolverine Into The Deadpool Movie?

Logan director James Mangold made a very controversial post on Twitter showing Wolverine’s tragic death in Logan. This stirred reactions from the fans, some responding under the post with: “You are not the final word on Wolverine” and “anything is possible in the Multiverse!” among others. Now, many are speculating: if Wolverine died at the end of Logan, will Deadpool 3 use a multiverse Wolverine? Or will the movie take place sometime before Logan was released?

If the producers choose to go with the multiverse Wolverine, his tragic end in Logan will remain his canon story. The final scene in Logan saw Wolverine fighting a much stronger X-24 to save Laura and other mutants. He was then impaled on a piece of wood just before Laura fired the adamantium bullet into the clone’s head. But, of course, this is the comic book character. In fact, it is also unknown if Deadpool will hail from a different multiverse.

The Most Awaited Collaboration

Either way, Reynolds and Jackman are happy to finally work together. To have Wolverine in the MCU has been Jackman’s dream, although his wish to interact with Robert Downey Jr.’s Iron Man won’t likely happen but, hey, multiverse, right? But the most important part here is what it means to have Hugh Jackman as Wolverine in the future of the X-Men mutants in MCU.

Reynolds and Jackman answered the most asked questions by fans in a short video clip; unfortunately, fans have been pranked by the duo, and that’s pretty much expected from a Deadpool fashion. Despite the trolling, fans will still have the R-rated viewing experience that the team behind Deadpool promised.


With this exciting announcement, there are many possibilities as to which direction the film writers will tread. The important thing is that fans will finally get the long-awaited and much-requested collaboration of the year!
