"Logan's frustrated": Hugh Jackman Gives a Spoiler About Ryan Reynolds's Deadpool 3 Storyline and Marvel Fans Are Not Complaining

Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds’s Deadpool 3 may yet be the most amazing and anticipated project for the Marvel fandom — not simply because of the heroes it encompasses, but also for the legacy it entails. Ever since Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox, it had been a matter of when rather than if the mutants would ever step into the MCU. And that hope now officially becomes tangible, especially after the two actors jointly announced Deadpool 3 in September 2022.

Hugh Jackman Drops a New Hint About Deadpool 3 Plot

After Ryan Reynolds‘s continued insistence (bordering on nagging) regarding Hugh Jackman‘s Wolverine appearing alongside his Deadpool for their epic team-up movie, the duo has taken their infamous rivalry to a whole new level. Even as the movie barely enters pre-production, Deadpool 3 is receiving its fair share of promotion due to its lead actors and it not only began with Jackman’s latest hint but the moment the pair appeared in a video together in Reynolds’s living room to casually announce the arrival of the iconic duo in their first Marvel movie — together.

In a recent podcast, the Logan actor drops a long-awaited hint as to the plot of their new film:

“10 being really close, zero being — that’s what we are, we are zero. We are opposites. Hate each other. [Wolverine] is annoyed by [Deadpool]. Wants to be a million miles away from him or punch him in the head. So, unfortunately, he can’t be a million miles away from him in the movie, so I’m probably going to punch him in the head a lot.”

Even though this is more of the same news that we’ve been getting regarding the two, it is good to know that the Deadpool 3 team, too, is aware of what appeals to the audience more when it comes to a signature Deadpool plot.

Deadpool 3 Turns the Love-Hate Rivalry into a Gory Delight

For a long time, it has been universally known that Deadpool and Wolverine harbor a relationship unlike any other — Mr. Pool loves the clawed mutant unconditionally, and the grumpy X-Men eyes the Merc With A Mouth with deep-seated hatred. But this twist in the iconic love-hate relationship comes with the added bonus of featuring actors who, in reality, have curated a reputation for being each other’s faux frenemies over the years since their first appearance in a movie together.

Meanwhile, the director Shawn Levy who has been working on the script alongside the first two Deadpool films’ scriptwriters, Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, updates:

“It’s a North Star priority for Ryan [Reynolds] and I to keep Deadpool raw, gritty, grounded in the ways that those movies have been and that all of us love.”

So, not only is the entire Deadpool 3 team onboard the same train that keeps the integrity of the anti-hero’s identity intact, but prioritizes the fact that a Deadpool-Wolverine team-up would bring unmatched calamity on film. Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds are more prepared than ever to take their battle to the green screens.

Deadpool 3 arrives in theatres on November 8, 2024.
