Hugh Jackman’s return as Wolverine in Deadpool 3 is one of the most anticipated events currently in the MCU. The actor who was last seen in the 2017 movie Logan, will team up with Ryan Reynolds’ character to embark upon a journey that will reportedly be Multiversal. But this update also brought widespread fan debate. There is overall confusion as the fans are uncertain about how long the character is going to stay in the MCU. But looks like the confusion might be over soon.
Wolverine’s return in the upcoming Deadpool 3 movie was more surprising to the fans due to the reason that the character’s story was already concluded in James Mangold’s Logan. Even Hugh Jackman expressed his thoughts to not return as the superhero again before changing his mind for the upcoming Shawn Levy flick. All these factors sum up more uncertainty about his future until any official details are revealed.
Is Hugh Jackman’s return to the MCU long-term?
The Internet was taken by storm when it was revealed by Ryan Reynolds and Jackman himself that Deadpool 3 will be a far more exciting venture than we thought. The fans were excited to watch two of their favorite superheroes sharing the screen. On the other hand, this might also hint at the official introduction of X-Men in the MCU.
Now even though it doesn’t come from any official source, a Twitter account named @MCUSource reported that Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine will feature in more projects after Deadpool 3.

But no matter how lucrative it sounds, being a rumor, it should be taken with a grain of salt before any authorized updates come from the office of Kevin Feige. It can be also anticipated that the 54-year-old actor can stay in the MCU till Avengers: Secret Wars and might pass the baton after the conclusion of The Multiverse Saga. It must be remembered that his age might turn out to be a major obstacle in making him a long-term star in the MCU.
What do we know about Deadpool 3?
As for the new Wade Wilson movie, there are very scarce to no details revealed yet. Except for the fact that it will mark Hugh Jackman’s surprising comeback, the studio refrained from announcing any other updates. But no matter how silent the studio remains, the highly astute fandom of the MCU is active in theorizing and collecting as many rumors and reports as they can.
Many sources cite that Deadpool 3 would mark the return of Owen Wilson’s Mobius and the TVA from the Loki series. It gained more trust after a cryptic tweet addressing Ryan Reynolds came from the official Twitter account of Miss Minutes. This also confirms high multiversal concepts coming into play if the reports turn true. Besides, some wild rumors also suggest many more cameos from the existing Fox X-Men universe and we might also get a proper introduction of Mutants in the MCU.
On the other hand, a recent statement by the Daredevil actor Charlie Cox also hinted at the appearance of the blind vigilante of Hell’s Kitchen in the upcoming flick. Now the fans can do nothing but wait for the studio to spill more beans about the project which still has a considerable amount of time left to make it to the theaters.
Deadpool 3 is set to hit theaters on November 8, 2024.
