a wonderful reunion Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman will reconnect in Deadpool 3 for the first time since 2009’s Wolverine: Origins.
The resident of Canada said in a humorous announcement video that his friend would join him in September 2022. On this one, I had to truly look deep within. It’s only natural that his debut appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) feel special, Reynolds remarked in the video.
We must remain committed to the persona while still discovering new depth, inspiration, and significance. Every Deadpool film must be distinctive and distinct. It has been a tremendous task that has had me dig deep inside, yet I have nothing. Yes, it is entirely empty up here. And frightening.
But we did have one concept, Reynolds says as a figure enters the backdrop. Hey Hugh, would you like to play Wolverine again?
Yes, Ryan, Jackman Answers Amiably.
For a very long time, it had been planned for Jackman’s clawed crusader and Reynolds’ Merc with a Mouth to reunite. The Just Friends star said to Entertainment Tonight in November 2022, “I’ve been asking him to do it for six straight years.
In the end, Hugh was the one who stated, “I think I am ready to come back,” Reynolds recalled. Selling it to [Marvel Studios co-president] Kevin Feige was all that was required, and it didn’t take long.
Feige was prepared to welcome Jackman, but he had some bureaucratic hurdles to overcome. After all, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has yet to meet the X-Men.
The mutants originally existed in 20th Century Fox’s X-Men universe, whereas the Avengers currently exist in the Disney-owned MCU, produced by Marvel Studios. But now that Disney owns Fox, Deadpool can finally coexist with the Avengers.
It’s not as if selling Hugh Jackman to a film like this would be difficult. Reynolds responded to Collider that month with an unequivocal, immediate, and strong yes. Marvel needs to sift through a number of moving components, including Fox, X-Men, and other issues of this nature. There is a lot of bureaucracy involved in doing that. And so they did.
And I’m incredibly appreciative that they did it, he continued, since working with Hugh is a dream come true for me. But it’s beyond any notion I’d ever be bold enough to have to work with Logan and have Wade and Logan together in a movie. I’m therefore f-king crazy excited to work on this movie.
