Seems like the wishes of Marvel fans are coming true as Hugh Jackman is officially coming out of his Wolverine retirement. Yes, you read that right, Hugh Jackman is officially returning as the iconic character of Wolverine/Logan in the upcoming Deadpool 3 alongside Ryan Reynolds.
Ryan Reynolds revealed a video (watch above) that confirmed the release date for the film along with Jackman's return as one of the most iconic and beloved Marvel characters of all time. Also, the video confirms that it won't be just a fan service guest appearance, but a regular full-time return in this role. However, fans might have to wait a bit longer for it as Deadpool 3 will release in theaters on September 9, 2024.
The plot details for Deadpool 3 have been kept under the wraps, but seeing that Jackman's Wolverine and Reynolds' Deadpool are reuniting, we can expect some firecrackers this time. The last time they were together was in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which was released in 2009. However, in the film, Deadpool was not in his regular costume as he was presented as an experiment in the Weapon X program and tasked to kill Wolverine. But after this announcement, fans can finally see two of these iconic characters in a role true to their characters that fans have always wished for.
Below is Ryan Reynolds' tweet that broke the internet:

Earlier, Shawn Levy was confirmed as the director of Deadpool 3 after he collaborated with Reynolds on the Netflix film, The Adam Project and Disney's Free Guy. Levy was the first to tease that Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds are coming together. "I absolutely will confirm my intention and determination to be the lucky son of a boy who puts those two magnificent gods in the same movie together," said Levy in an interview.
Deadpool 3 will also mark the first film in this franchise which will be produced by Marvel Studios and Kevin Feige. It is yet to be confirmed if the film will be set in the main Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline, which includes The Avengers and all the current superheroes in the films produced by Marvel Studios.
Writers of the first two films Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are penning the script for the third film as well. They are currently rumored to have prepared the draft of the film. Deadpool 3 is currently expected to begin production in February next year in Vancouver, British Columbia.
