Ryan Reynolds shared on social media that Deadpool 3 will feature Hugh Jackman’s return as Wolverine, and also shard the sequel’s release date — Sept. 6, 2024. In the video clip on Twitter, Reynolds speaks to the camera while Jackman walks by in the background. Reynolds asks Jackman if he’ll play Wolverine one more time, with him responding, “Yeah, sure, Ryan.” Wolverine’s claws slash the Deadpool logo, before revealing the film’s release date.
Deadpool 3 will be the first Deadpool film made since Disney acquired 20th Century Fox. Deadpool was part of the X-Men universe at Fox, and introduced Reynolds’ character in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and included other character cameos in Reynolds’ films.
Jackman previously stated that 2017’s film Logan was his last appearance as the character. Logan was set in the future, as Wolverine’s powers were declining, so there is room for him to appear prior to the events of that film.
