When we all thought Hugh Jackman had definitely said goodbye to his role as Wolverine with Logan released in 2017, the latter will finally make his big comeback in the skin of the mutant with the adamantium skeleton with Deadpool 3expected in theaters on September 6, 2024. It is Ryan Reynolds in person who disclosed the information, to everyone’s surprise, in a video posted on September 27. While filming should begin next May, Hugh Jackman has given himself up to some secrets about the nature of the relationship that will bind Dead Pool and Wolverine.
“We are opposites, we hate each other”
“How would I rate the relationship between Wolverine and Dead Pool ? If ten means very close and zero is reality, we are zero, we are opposites, we hate each other”, had fun explaining to Empire Movie Podcast the one currently starring in the show The Music Man on Broadway. The actor, crowned with a Golden Globes for his performance in Wretched, also revealed, not without humor, that from his point of view: “Logan is frustrated because of Deadpool. He wants to be a million miles away or he wants to punch him in the face. Unfortunately, he can’t be a million miles away from him in this movie, so I’m probably going to hit him in the head a lot.” It would therefore seem that the two characters are following in the footsteps of their interpreters who spend their time sweetly boasting on social networks.
Live on the SiriusXM YouTube channel a few days before these statements, Hugh Jackman had wanted to reassure fans about the timeline of events surrounding Wolverine’s return. “It’s all down to this device they have in the Marvel world to move around timelines,” he explained, referring to the Multiverse saga currently underway in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He was also reassuring about the link with the events of Logan which culminated in a grandiose way the trilogy centered on his character: “Now we can go back because, you know, it’s science. So I don’t have to worry about Logan’s timeline, which was important to me. And I’m probably thinking of the fans too.”
