Hugh Jackman will enter the Marvel Universe alongside Ryan Reynolds in “Deadpool 3,” which is expected in theatres on Sept. 6, 2024.
Reynolds, who described the “merc with a mouth” in several twentieth Century Fox projects, announced via social media that he and Jackman are set to partner up for Deadpool’s most memorable turn as a Disney property.
“Hello everybody, we’re incredibly sad to have missed D23, yet we’ve been buckling down on the following ‘Deadpool’ film for quite a long time now,” Reynolds said in the video, seated on his lounge chair. “I’ve had to search my spirit on this one. His most memorable appearance in the MCU needs to feel special. We want to stay consistent with the character and track down new profundity and motivation, meaning each Deadpool needs to stand out and stand apart. It’s been an extraordinary challenge that has constrained me to reach down somewhere inside.”
“Hello, Hugh; you want to play Wolverine once again?” Reynolds asks as Jackman walks toward the back of the shot.
“Yeah, certain, Ryan,” Jackman answers.
Disney had recently said Deadpool would be integrated into the MCU, yet it was unclear when the character would get a standalone film and where it would fit in the greater expanse of the Multiverse.
Deadpool is one of several comic book properties that Disney acquired when it purchased Twentieth Century Fox in 2019. The X-Men and the Fantastic Four are also set to appear in films throughout the following two years.
Reynold’s Deadpool movies are a rarity in the Hollywood. Both “Deadpool” and “Deadpool 2″ were rated R and generated more than $780 million globally. That’s probably why Disney has decided to let “Deadpool 3” be rated R, even though the rest of the MCU filmography is rated PG-13 or lower.
