Deadpool 3 Is Coming in 2024, Teases Hugh Jackman's Return as Wolverine
Deadpool will join the Marvel Cinematic Universe on September 6, 2024, and star Ryan Reynolds is teasing a long-awaited meeting with his old friend Wolverine.
In a surprise teaser posted on Ryan Reynold's personal Twitter account, the actor is shown seated on a sofa telling fans he was "extremely sad" about missing D23 where there was no Deadpool 3 announcement.
Reynolds then shares a workout montage before talking about a potential story idea the writers had for Deadpool 3. He then asks Hugh Jackman if he wants to play Wolverine again, to which Jackman appears briefly and says "sure."

Jackman last played Wolverine in 2017's Logan directed by James Mangold. At the time, Jackman publicly stated Logan would be his last film as Wolverine. Even after Disney officialy acquired the rights to the X-Men again, Jackman talked about his excitement for new actors to pick up the claws.
However, a Jackman and Reynolds team-up has also been something both actors have wanted for a long time. Especially as a way to make up for their first meeting in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. And if Reynolds could reboot Deadpool, why not reboot his relationship with Jackman's Wolverine too?

The pair did briefly appear together in the credits of Deadpool 2, though that was more of a fun joke than proper crossover. But with Deadpool 3 coming in 2024, fans can expect to see a real version of the crossover on screens.
