Hugh Jackman is returning to his famous Wolverine role in 'Deadpool 3', as announced by Ryan Reynolds on his official social media handles.
“Hey everyone, we’re extremely sad to have missed D23, but we’ve been working very hard on the next Deadpool film for a good long while now. I’ve had to really search my soul on this one. His first appearance in the MCU obviously needs to feel special. We need to stay true to the character, find new depth, motivation, meaning," Reynolds says in a video posted on social media.
"Every 'Deadpool' needs to stand out and stand apart. It’s been an incredible challenge that has forced me to reach down deep inside. And I…I have nothing. Yeah, just completely empty up here. And terrifying. But we did have one idea."
His next statement reveals the big news: "Hey, Hugh, you want to play Wolverine one more time?”
"Yeah, sure, Ryan," Jackman replies.
The video ends with Whitney Houston’s I Will Always Love You - subtitled as "I will always love Hugh" and a "Coming Hughn" teaser.
Deadpool 3 will hit theatres on September 6, 2024.
