Fans were suspicious a week ago when Marvel unveiled a fresh addition to the MCU storyline. The studio added a new film, which will be released on September 6, 2024. Fans suggested a number of films that may be released on that date. But Ryan Reynolds took over the internet when he revealed that Deadpool 3 is the next entry to the MCU storyline. The actor delivered two videos in which he announced the film’s release date and introduced a long-awaited character to the MCU, Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine.
Hugh Jackman has set the internet on fire with the announcement that he will once again be sporting Wolverine’s Adamantium claws, which has fans going insane. The big scoop is that he’ll not only sport his Adamantium claws but will also appear in his comic-accurate yellow-black suit.
Hugh Jackman will wear his comic-accurate Wolverine suit
While Jackman has played Logan/Wolverine since the 2000 film X-Men, he has never appeared in the character’s yellow suit. The only time fans have seen the suit in action was in a deleted clip from The Wolverine. The decision to keep Jackman’s version out of the suit in 2020 was explained by the film’s director, James Mangold said in a Twitter response to a fan.
“Everything about his character as I understand it, would keep him from donning a self promoting ‘uniform, I’m sure the next incarnation of the Wolverine will go there.”
According to the insider, DanielRPK, Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine will reportedly wear his iconic yellow suit in Deadpool 3. It’s believed that the Wolverine from Logan was a different variant and the one showing up in the MCU will be of a different variant. Either from the X-Men First Class storyline or from Earth-838 shown in Doctor Stange in the Multiverse of Madness.
If you’ve watched Logan or any of the X-Men films from 20th Century Fox, it’s difficult to disagree with Mangold on the yellow spandex. Wolverine was typically the least vain of the X-Men on the big screen. In reality, throughout the majority of the X-Men films, Jackman’s Wolverine refused to be a part of Charles Xavier’s do-gooding mutant squad.
So, having the character in the X-Men movie seeks to bring attention to himself with a flamboyant costume and mask would’ve felt incredibly off-key. Besides, Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine looked great in the black leather outfits he usually wears in the X-Men films.
How will Wolverine fit in Deadpool 3?
It is yet unknown how Wolverine will fit into the plot of the threequel. Reynolds previously said that in 2021 “Deadpool 3 was supposed to be a road trip between Deadpool and Logan before Disney bought Fox. Rashomon style. For real.” Some fans have theorized that with Jackman’s casting, that plot has been rebooted, but this has yet to be confirmed. Aside from Reynolds and Jackman, the only confirmed Deadpool 3 actress is Leslie Uggams, who will presumably reprise her role as Wade Wilson’s roommate Blind Al.
Shawn Levy, who helmed Jackman in Real Steel in 2012 and Reynolds in Free Guy and The Adam Project in 2021 and 2022, will direct Deadpool 3. The scripting team thanked Disney and Marvel Studios for enabling them to “keep the tone and vision” for the third picture. Despite initial concerns that Deadpool 3 will be graded PG-13, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has assured MCU fans that the Deadpool franchise will stay R-rated.
Deadpool 3 hits theatres on September 6, 2024.
