Now that Wolverine’s return has become official, people have been dying with questions stirring their minds. But luckily enough, both the stars thought better than making their fans wait, and got straight to business as they uploaded yet another video on Twitter, addressing all the imperative details about Deadpool 3.

Only, they do so with a little twist of their own.

Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman talk about Deadpool 3

Hugh Jackman had been playing the classic role of Wolverine in the X-men movies for more than a decade. But after nine amazing movies, his character was shown for the last time in 2017, in James Mangold’s Logan, at the end of which Wolverine sadly died. Following that, Jackman announced how he won’t be playing the character anymore, further solidifying Wolverine’s death.

So, Wolverine’s death had been pretty official. Up until now, that is, because he’s going to be back in Reynold’s new film. How is that possible? Well, that is exactly what both the actors point out in their recent Twitter video. Or not.

Reynolds tweeted an update about the new Deadpool film that features Jackman’s Wolverine, that read “quick explainer video that tackles… 1) Timeline questions 2) Logan canon 3)MCU FAQ 4) Whether we can do this all day or not.”

Though the caption seems promising enough, if their mischievousness was any indicator, fans would know better than expecting to be handed details about the movie on a silver platter.

The video starts with the actors greeting their viewers as Jackman says, “Hi. How are you?” Only for  Reynolds to get on with it as he points out the obvious. “You have questions”, he says in a hopeful tone, implying to answer them shortly.

Jackman then goes on to add how he himself had questions about some aspects with regard to the film. “I had a lot of questions. I’m sure you had a lot of questions. But rest assured, we’re going to answer them right now. Like, for example, how is Wolverine alive, after Logan“, Jackman mentioned, indicating his character’s death in the 2017 movie.

One would expect an easy ride from here onwards with them finally telling their fans what they’re dying to know. But little did we know, life is unfair.

Reynold takes over as he brushes upon the topic a little, “Logan takes place in 2029. Totally separate thing. Logan died in Logan. Not touching that.”

“What happens in our film is, these two f**king guys…”, but before he could continue, Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go by Wham! starts playing in the background, completely drowning out Reynold and Jackman’s voices as they pretend to talk about all the important things associated with Deadpool 3. Yup, that happened. And just as they finish talking, the music stops too.

Both of them end the video by thanking Kevin Feige and the MCU, shortly after which, the music resumes with snapshots of the actors floating in the background.

As disappointing as it might seem, it was also hilarious to see Reynolds and Jackman tease their fans about their upcoming film. But hopefully, they won’t test their fans’ patience too much.

Deadpool 3 will be coming out in theatres on September 6, 2024.
