Ryan Reynolds announced Tuesday (27) that “Deadpool 3” will be released on September 6, 2024 and feature the return of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine.
In a video published on his profile on Twitter, the Canadian actor has a flash participation from Australia, who plays the mutant hero for 17 years in the film.
“Logan” (2017) was, until now, his farewell to the character.

In the tweet, Reynolds said he was running out of ideas for the third Mercenary film from the Marvel comics, the first production of a character to be included in the publisher’s Cinematic Universe.
That is until Jackman passes in the background and Canada asks if Australia doesn’t want to play Wolverine anymore. “Yes, of course Ryan,” replied another.
In the tweet, Deadpool’s interpreter is still teasing his first appearance as an anti-hero. “Hard to keep my mouth stitched on this one,” the actor wrote, referring to the fate of the character in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” (2009).
After a poor start in his co-star film, Reynolds got two new opportunities with his own film – the last in 2018.
Both were huge hits for the Fox studio, which Disney has since purchased, something that made it possible to reintegrate its film characters into the unique Marvel universe.
Jackman took on the role of Wolverine in 2000 and played it in eight films until he retired from the character in 2017.
