Ryan Reynolds, who plays Deadpool, caused a Marvel-sized meltdown when he announced a date for the release of Deadpool 3, the third part of his famous comedic anti-hero story. It’s official: on September 6, 2024, the most offensive Marvel hero to appear on the screen will be back for more mildly offensive jokes.
Reynolds told this news in the same dry, sarcastic way his superhero counterpart always does. Reynolds said in a tweet video announcement, “Hey, everyone. Unfortunately, we couldn’t go to D23, but we’ve been working very hard on the next Deadpool movie for a long time. I’ve had to look deep inside myself to figure this one out. His first time in the MCU needs to be special, of course. We must stay true to the character and find new depth, motivation, and meaning. Every Deadpool needs to be unique and different.”
It’s been a fantastic challenge that has made me dig deep into myself,” he said. “I have nothing,” she said. Yeah, it’s scary up here because it’s so empty. We did have one idea, though.” Hugh Jackman, who plays Wolverine in the X-Men movies, is then seen casually walking up the stairs while Reynolds calls out, “Hey, Hugh! Want to play Wolverine one more time?” Ryan says this, and Jackman says, “Yeah, sure, Ryan.” Then Reynolds raises his eyebrows at the camera as Whitney Houston’s hit song “I Will Always Love You” plays in the background. Slowly, the Deadpool logo comes out of the darkness, and Wolverine’s famous adamantium claw marks scratch right through the middle.
Fans of the MCU online have gotten very excited about the massive event, which is understandable. The last time Jackman was seen with his claws out was in 2017 in the movie Logan, in which the main character dies. Not much is known about how he will be brought back to life, but with Marvel’s many universes and endless loopholes, there will be a way.
Most of the other details about the Merc with a Mouth’s return to theatres have, not surprisingly, been kept secret. However, it is likely that the movie will still be rated R. Shawn Levy, who worked with Reynolds on Free Guy and Netflix’s The Adam Project, is set to direct the project, and Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are expected to return for the third time. Reynolds has said that his next project will take a “completely different direction,” so fans have much to look forward to.
