It seems that Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds has already given the fans a clue about what is going to happen in Deadpool 3. Now that we have confirmed Hugh Jackman’s return to the superhero world as Wolverine, all that’s left to the mystery is the movie’s plot.
Deadpool finally joined the Marvel Studios after Disney acquired Fox in 2019, making the Merc with a Mouth the only character from Fox’s X-Men franchise to debut in the MCU. Despite retiring from his role as Wolverine in 2017, Hugh Jackman will reprise the character in Deadpool 3.
Deadpool 3 Might Follow Fox’s Original Plan
Reynolds recently announced in a short video clip that the filming for the third installment is currently underway. Deadpool and Wolverine’s tandem has long been a crowd-favorite wish, as hinted a couple of times in the past, especially in the post-credits of Deadpool 2.
In 2021, Reynolds revealed Fox’s plan for Deadpool 3 featuring a “road trip between Deadpool and Logan. Rashomon style. For real.” The script was written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, but Marvel initially wanted Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Logelin to create a new one. Later on, Reese and Wernick were called back to work. This announcement could mean that the original concept is most likely going to happen.
Deadpool And Wolverine In A Carpool
Fans have waited for years to get a Deadpool and Wolverine team-up. Their interactions are never short of sarcasm and humor, making them one of the best Marvel pairs. Just having them work together ensures pure entertainment. In fact, give the viewers a three-hour road trip drive with just them talking about everything under the sun, and they will pay bucks to listen.
Indeed, whatever the concept Marvel has prepared for Deadpool 3, people will watch. A guaranteed action-packed movie filled with gore, expletives, and endless banters is indeed a movie designed in the most Deadpool-like fashion.
The film is scheduled for a 2024 release, and it will be MCU’s first movie for Phase 6. It would also be cool to have the writers bring the duo into a multiverse saga with time travel and reality-bending story. Now, that road trip they are talking about better lead to something exciting.
More importantly, Shawn Levy will direct the film, and despite its transition to Disney, Deadpool will retain its R-rating. Reynolds and Jackman’s on-screen chemistry is unparalleled, making this collaboration the most anticipated one.
Deadpool 3 will arrive in theatres this September 6. 2024.
