Hugh Jackman’s appearance as Wolverine in the third Deadpool film was officially announced by Ryan Reynolds on Tuesday. This movie will be the first one to have a plot that takes place in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The release date of the movie was shown in a hilarious video that was shared by Ryan Reynolds on various social media platforms. Following Disney’s acquisition of the studio a few years ago, both Ryan and Hugh will be making their first appearances in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with this film.
Reynolds and Jackman have quite a superhero pedigree. The “Deadpool” actor originally played Wolverine in 2009’s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” which was criticized. This version of Deadpool had his mouth stitched shut and no red-and-black suit. Years later, Reynolds played the wisecracking mercenary in an R-rated “Deadpool” movie. With a worldwide total of about $780 million, the “Deadpool” movie series has become the “X-Men” franchise’s highest-grossing blockbuster of all time. To recall, before Disney acquired 20th Century Fox, the distribution rights for the first two films, which were released in 2016 and 2018, were held by 20th Century Fox.
