Marvel fans rejoiced when Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman shared pictures of themselves in their recognizable superhero roles for Deadpool 3 on Instagram. Fans were thrilled to see the stars in London filming sequences for a forthcoming film.
Reynolds appeared completely engrossed in his role as Deadpool while wearing his trademark red-and-black outfit. Jackman made his on-screen debut as the adored Logan/Wolverine while donning a vivid yellow jumpsuit with blue trimmings. In one image, Jackman was conversing with Reynolds while sporting sunglasses and grinning. Logan’s wrath was captured in another photograph that appeared to have CGI claws.
Jackman’s new Wolverine look appears to closely resemble the character’s appearance in the original comic books, marking a departure from his previous onscreen portrayals.
Both actors added captions to their Instagram Stories, with Reynolds and Jackman simply writing, “Don’t blink.” They also included small animations of their respective characters beneath the photos, further exciting fans about their onscreen reunion.
Production for the highly anticipated Deadpool 3 commenced in London in May, according to a report from The Hollywood Reporter. This film is expected to serve as the official introduction of the Deadpool character into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Notably, it will also mark the first time Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman collaborate on a Marvel movie since Reynolds portrayed a different version of Deadpool in the 2009 film X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
The exciting news of Wolverine’s appearance in the upcoming Deadpool 3 was initially announced by Reynolds and Hugh Jackman themselves. In September, the actors shared a video on social media, generating immense excitement among fans about their onscreen reunion in a Marvel film.
Hugh Jackman In Deadpool 3
During an interview on the show Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace?, Hugh Jackman expressed his excitement about the upcoming movie and the opportunity to explore a new dynamic between Deadpool and Wolverine, two iconic comic-book rivals. He mentioned that playing Wolverine alongside Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool would be a fresh experience for him and something he had never done before.
Both Jackman and Reynolds have reassured fans that Wolverine’s appearance in the upcoming movie will not interfere with the character’s storyline from previous films, particularly considering the emotional conclusion of Logan, which received critical acclaim and ended with the death of the character.
Addressing this concern in a video shared in September, Reynolds emphasized that the events of Logan took place in a separate timeline set in 2029 and that they would not alter or diminish that story. He made it clear that the upcoming movie would not touch upon Logan’s narrative, respecting its significance and the character’s ultimate fate.
According to a recent confirmation from a source, Jennifer Garner is set to reprise her role as Elektra in the upcoming Deadpool movie. Garner, who is now 51 years old, previously portrayed the character in the 2003 film Daredevil, starring alongside her then-husband Ben Affleck. She later appeared as Elektra in a standalone film in 2005.
The third installment of the Deadpool franchise is being directed by Shawn Levy, who has previously collaborated with Garner and Ryan Reynolds on the Netflix movie The Adam Project. Levy also directed Reynolds’ recent film, Free Guy.
Deadpool 3 Cameo Rumours
The rumors of amazing cameos in this big crossover with the MCU are still circulating as Deadpool 3 nears its release. Prior to Disney’s acquisition of Fox, Ryan Reynolds and the cast supposedly worked in a number of cameo appearances from characters from Fox’s Marvel films, which served as the previous home of Deadpool.
As a result, Deadpool 3 will probably examine the idea of the multiverse, which could ultimately result in Wade Wilson becoming imprisoned in the main Earth-616 version of the MCU. This is because Disney wants to keep the Deadpool persona around even after it joins the MCU.
Wanda in Deadpool 3?
With Phase 4 of the MCU introducing various characters through the multiverse and Disney gaining access to Fox’s Marvel properties, fans are speculating about the possibility of Magneto, a character from the X-Men series, being retconned as Wanda Maximoff’s biological father. This idea has sparked a discussion among Marvel fans on platforms like Reddit.
In both Avengers: Age of Ultron and WandaVision, the current canon portrays a different backstory for Wanda, making her relationship with her father more complex. However, the question posed by Reddit user u/Some-Dog9800 on r/marvelstudios explores the potential for Magneto to be reimagined as Wanda’s father in the MCU under Disney’s control. In the X-Men comics, Wanda is often portrayed as the adopted daughter of Magneto, and their relationship undergoes various changes and complexities throughout different comic storylines and X-Men media adaptations.
Fans can anticipate the release of Deadpool 3 in theaters on May 3, 2024.
