Hugh Jackman will return as Wolverine again in the future Deadpool 3 is something many Marvel fans thought they would never see. It wasn’t just that the actor had a strong call for his 2017 movie Logan A swansong, but Marvel Studios acquiring the rights to the X-Men seemed certain it would reboot the character. Speaking in a new interview with The Empire Movie Podcast, the actor was asked if he was actually considering his return to the character for the new movie with Ryan Reynolds as a one-off movie or if it was the beginning of a new chapter as Wolverine. His answer… might surprise you.
“I imagine every movie as a movie and done, that’s how I see it,” Jackman said. dead list 3 and all of his films. “I’ll be honest, I had a two-picture deal at first, but I still assumed it was one and it’s over. You know at the time, there were no comic book movies, so I took it one at a time.” I’m lucky that way, I don’t have to think beyond that but I think it’s the best way to go.”
Jackman also offered up another big teaser for the film, as he talked about the relationship Wolverine and Deadpool would have in the film, adding, “How do I classify it? Antitheses, they hate each other. I’m just speaking from my point of view, [Logan’s] Frustrated by him, wanting to be a million miles away from him or wanting to punch him in the head. Unfortunately, he can’t be a million miles away from him in this movie, so I’d probably punch him in the head a lot.”
We don’t have official details on what the plot of the movie will be, and even how it will tie itself into the Marvel Cinematic Universe and 20th Century Fox X-Men movies. However, Reynolds himself may have poked fun at the film’s plot at a moment when he may have thought the film wasn’t going to be made. In January 2021, Reynolds tweeted: “It’s important to have open, honest, healthy discussions about mental health. By retweeting #BellLetsTalk you can make a difference,” Reynolds tweeted at the time. “In case that wasn’t enough, before Disney bought Fox, Deadpool 3 was a Deadpool and Logan road trip. Rashomon style. Real.”
For those unaware, Reynolds by “Rashomon style” is referring to the 1950 Japanese film directed by Akira Kurosawa in which the same story is told from the viewpoints of several different characters. To that end, it seems like the road trip would have shown Deadpool and Logan’s different perspectives on whatever they were experiencing; To bet on Guess, Comic vs. Dark and Thinking.
