It is a happy Wednesday for all Ryan Reynolds fans out there. After all, Deadpool 3 is on its way. No, we aren’t bluffing here. The announcement was made by Ryan Reynolds himself. Well, if you are unable to keep calm after reading this, then we suggest you must wait. The ever-charming Ryan Reynolds has another surprise in store. The actor also confirmed that Hugh Jackman will return as Wolverine in the upcoming film, directed by Shawn Levy. Ryan Reynolds’ character first appeared in the 2009 film X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Ryan Reynolds has also shared a video message for all of us on Instagram. The actor, referring to the D23 Expo that took place earlier this month, said, “Hey everyone, we’re extremely sad to have missed D23, but we have been working very hard on the next Deadpool film for a good long while now.”
On his first appearance in MCU, Ryan Reynolds added, “I have had to really search my soul on this one. His first appearance in the MCU obviously needs to feel special. We need to stay true to the character and find new depth, motivation, and meaning. Every Deadpool needs to stand out and stand apart. It’s been an incredible challenge that has forced me to reach down deep inside. And I…I have nothing. Yeah, just completely empty up here. And terrifying. But we did have one idea.”
Gear up, here comes the best part. We see Hugh Jackman walking by in the background as Ryan Reynolds asks, “Hey, Hugh, you want to play Wolverine one more time?” To this, Hugh Jackman replies, “Yeah, sure, Ryan.”
In the background, we can hear I Will Always Love You, by Whitney Houston, which has been tweaked as I will always love Hugh. Next, we see a black screen with “Coming Hughn” written on it. In the end, a Deadpool logo shows up and within a few seconds, it gets sliced up by Wolverine’s adamantium claws.
