Ryan Reynolds announced Hugh Jackman’s highly anticipated return as the Wolverine in a Twitter video sending fans into a frenzy while also revealing that ‘Deadpool 3’ will release on September 6, 2024.

Deadpool 3 will be directed by Free Guy and The Adam Project’s Shawn Levy, with a script written by Bob’s Burgers’ Wendy Molyneaux and Lizzie Molyneaux-Loeglin, with Deadpool and Deadpool 2 writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick reportedly also returning to contribute to the script.

“Hard keeping my mouth sewn shut about this one,” he captioned his tweet, making a reference to the character’s first appearance in the film X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The video opens with the actor saying that he has been hard at work thinking about how to make Deadpool’s first appearance in the MCU special.

There are some tongue-in-cheek shots of Reynolds taking leisurely strolls and hunched over a typewriter, trying to come up with ideas. “I’ve really had to search my soul on this one,” he says. But all his efforts were for nothing because he couldn’t come up with anything. Except for one idea. A man walks across the frame behind him, as Reynolds asks, “Hey Hugh, want to play Wolverine one more time?” And Jackman replies casually, “Yeah, sure, Ryan.” The video then reveals the film’s logo, which is the Deadpool symbol, but with three claw marks scratched across it, to symbolize the return of Wolverine.

Jackman had famously retired from playing the superhero in 2017’s Logan, whose entire publicity revolved around the claim that fans would never see Jackman as Wolverine again. In fact, the film ended with Wolverine being brutally murdered and being laid to rest.

Deadpool 3 will also mark both Reynolds and Jackman’s debut appearance in the MCU, although it is believed that Wolverine will be recast going forward.

Deadpool, AKA Wade Wilson, AKA the Merc with a Mouth, first made his debut in the X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009). Pretty much the only thing people liked from that was Ryan Reynolds was a perfect fit for the character, but they just wanted to see him don that glorious red suit and enact some of that fourth-wall-breaking humour that he’s so well-known for in the comics. Seven years later, we finally got that with the first Deadpool film in 2016, followed by Deadpool 2 two years later in 2018. Both films are among the highest-grossing R-rated films of all time.

Marvel’s Deadpool films never fail to bring heavy humour packed into a self-aware superhero satire. Deadpool 2 received positive reviews from critics, with some considering it superior to the first film and praising its humour, cast performances, story, and action sequences, while others criticized its tone, script, and recycled jokes. Worldwide, the film had a global debut of $300.4 million, including $174.9 million internationally, the largest-ever for an R-rated film or Fox release.

The third Deadpool movie will hit theatres on Sept. 6, 2024, according to the final frame in the video. By 2024, it will be six years since Deadpool 2 hit theatres, but for this iconic duo, all the wait is worthwhile.
