With the announcement that Hugh Jackman (53) will once again slip into the role of "X-Men" hero Wolverine for "Deadpool 3", Ryan Reynolds (45) caused waves in the MCU – and a lot questions among the fans. The "Deadpool" star followed his funny and epochal video in this regard with another clip in which Jackman sits next to him on the couch.
Together, the duo talks about four agenda items in their "quick explainer video," according to the description: "1, timeline questions; 2, Logan canon; 3, MCU FAQ; 4, whether or not we can do this all day."
Reynolds then takes over again and explains: "'Logan' takes place in 2029. It's a completely different thing. Logan died in 'Logan'. We're not touching that." But when the duo finally start retelling the plot of Deadpool 3, Wham! respectively their hit "Wake Me Up Before You Go Go" in the way. Gesticulating wildly, the two act out their upcoming action and fight scenes, but what they say in passing can't be heard.
As Wham! finally cut short, a clapping Reynolds says to the Marvel boss, "Thanks, Kevin Feige!" Jackmann joins in the hymn of praise: "We love you, Kevin Feige! We love you, MCU!" What the two have already proven: a lot of common humor potential.
How the whole thing is then reflected in a film will only be seen in almost two years. According to Reynolds, "Deadpool 3" will be released in early September 2024, directed by Shawn Levy (54). It is the first "Deadpool" movie to be made by Marvel Studios. Jackman, meanwhile, wouldn't be the first "X-Men" star to come out of retirement for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. His "Logan" co-star Patrick Stewart (82) made a cameo appearance in "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness" this summer.
