Deadpool 3’s Pitch to Disney Included Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine Return!
Hugh Jackman recently explained to Variety why, despite earlier declaring that 2017’s Logan would be his final appearance as Wolverine, he decided to reprise the role in Deadpool 3.
Deadpool 3’s Release Date Has Been Postponed by Marvel Studios
Deadpool, which came out in 2016, is reportedly what Jackman saw before shooting.
The actor first became aware of the Wolverine/Deadpool crossover thanks to Logan.
I watched a Deadpool movie,” Jackman recalled. “After 20 minutes, I thought, Ah, damn it! I couldn’t stop picturing 48 Hours starring Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy. Therefore, it has been simmering for a while. Just that getting here took longer for me.
However, Jackman didn’t make up his mind to reprise his role as Wolverine until August, at which point he told Ryan Reynolds.
Oh my God, I’m so happy. Regarding Jackman’s return, Reynolds noted. It reminds me of the home week. It’s a dream come true to work on set every day with one of my best friends. But to accomplish it with these two recognizable figures side by side is beyond our wildest expectations.
Why Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine Joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe Is a Game Changer
Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are writing Deadpool 3 from a prior screenplay by Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin of Bob’s Burgers. It will continue to be an R-rated movie, exactly like the studio’s first two releases, according to Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, making it the first picture produced by the company to carry the specified mature rating. Currently, November 8th, 2024 is scheduled as the movie’s release date.
