While DC fans seem to be waiting for a miracle to stop the DCEU from falling apart, the Marvel fandom is elated with joy after hearing that Hugh Jackman will return as the iconic Wolverine. But celebrating the actor’s comeback isn’t the only thing they’re busy doing, for they’re also having a good laugh at the way the other side keeps having setbacks.
Twitter is brimming with Marvel fans incessantly trolling the DCEU, asking Warner Bros. to get it together for once. And even if DC fans would like to speak up, it looks like there’s not much left for them to defend WB anymore, with what, the studio constantly messing up with their superhero films.
Hugh Jackman makes his comeback as Wolverine in Deadpool 3
After playing the all-time favorite role of Wolverine for about 17 years, Hugh Jackman announced his retirement from the role back in 2017.
But this Tuesday, Ryan Reynolds took to his Twitter to talk about his upcoming movie, Deadpool 3, and how Jackman would be returning to play the character of Logan, his signature X-Men role in the new film.
In the video he shared on Twitter, Reynolds started by talking about how the reason he wasn’t able to attend D23 was that he was busy with his team working on the next, much-awaited Deadpool film. “I’ve had to really search my soul on this one. His first appearance in the MCU obviously needs to feel special. We need to stay true to the character, find new depth, motivation, meaning”, he said.
“Every Deadpool needs to stand out and stand apart. It’s been an incredible challenge that has forced me to reach down deep inside. And I…I have nothing. Yeah, just completely empty up here. And terrifying. But we did have one idea.”
And that’s when he dropped the bombshell, casually asking Jackman if he wanted to play Wolverine once again in Deadpool 3. “Hey, Hugh, you want to play Wolverine one more time?” Meanwhile, Jackman is seen entering the video, as he saunters in the background, answering just as nonchalantly. “Yeah, sure, Ryan.”
Fans react to Kevin Feige Bagging Jackman to play Wolverine in Deadpool 3 whilst trolling WB for still fumbling the bag
Kevin Feige getting Jackman to return as Wolverine is just the cherry on the cake. Marvel has consistently been reaching new heights and hasn’t given its fandom any opportunities to complain, whereas the DCEU is doing just the opposite.
The cancellation of Batgirl is one of the latest mishaps in the long list of “things DC keeps screwing up”, besides the executives from Warner Bros. interfering a little too much in DCEU’s direction and production, thereby making the already elaborate mess worse. And the MCU fandom is adamant about not letting DC hear the end of it.
Marvel fans have been flooding Twitter with memes directed towards Warner Bros. about how for some reason, DC just can’t seem to act straight when it comes to its superhero movies; it’s high time they do, though.
Bill Kuchman, an author, tweeted about the same and got innumerable reactions from fans with similar views.
Warner Bros. can’t stop stepping on rakes with their superhero films. Meanwhile Kevin Feige somehow got Hugh Jackman to play Wolverine again for the MCU.

From sarcastic remarks to jabs and trolls, people are giving their everything to roast DCEU and WB. One of the users even went ahead and said how both the MCU and DCEU have enough money to make good films, but only the former seems to know how to utilize it efficiently and make the best out of it.
They both have money, it just seems only one of them knows how to use it correctly.

Ryan Reynolds was planning this long before Hugh Jackman made it happen.

While the DCEU is still Marvel’s competitor, it’s been far behind the latter for a long time. Whether or not this is going to change anytime soon, nobody knows. But one thing’s for sure, as long as the MCU continues to dominate the industry, its fans won’t let DC rest.
Deadpool 3 is coming out in cinemas on September 6, 2024.
