Deadpool meets Wolverine: So far, this has only existed in the form of a few gags and allusions in the “ Deadpool ” films. But because the two characters meet again and again in the comics and the mutants played by Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman are among the most popular and successful characters from the «X-Men» films, many Marvel fans finally want a real meeting of Deadpool and Wolverine.
So far, however, it didn’t look as if this fan dream would ever come true. Reynolds already revealed that the original plan for » Deadpool 3 » was a joint road trip by Deadpool and Wolverine — told in the style of the masterpiece «Rashomon» .
But with the planned transfer of Deadpool into the MCU and Jackman’s departure from the role, which was emphasized several times, this plan seemed history. But now everything seems possible again.
Deadpool vs. Wolverine: The course is set
Because the screenwriters Wendy and Lizzie Molyneux («Bob’s Burgers»), who have since been hired, are no longer working on the script for «Deadpool 3». Instead, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are now on board — the authors of the first two films and thus probably also the authors who should write the Deadpool-Wolverine road trip in part 3.
Even more interesting, however, is this statement from new «Deadpool 3» director Shawn Levy , which he made shortly before announcing his commitment, and which now reads in a completely different light.
» We want to roll it all up and do a big, fat bromance sandwich movie because the world wants to see the ‘Hugh Jackman meets Ryan Reynolds’ movie. I don’t know exactly what it’s going to look like yet, but I know I have to direct it,» Levy told the Hollywood Reporter .
With the original scriptwriters, a director who has worked with Reynolds (» Free Guy «, » The Adam Project «) and Jackman (» Real Steel «), and would like to have both actors in a film, the odds are now better than ever. All that’s missing is Jackman’s readiness.
Can Hugh Jackman be persuaded?
Hugh Jackman said goodbye to the role with » Logan — The Wolverine » — and you couldn’t wish for a much better and more final goodbye. It is also known that he had to work extremely hard to train the mutant muscles, which at the age of 53 is no longer easy.
But Jackman has also expressed regret about the departure in the past . And it’s also clear: With » Spider-Man: No Way Home » those responsible for Marvel have only just experienced how much it can pay off when you fulfill fan wishes.
So, with the mega-hit of No Way Home in mind, we could very well imagine Disney and Marvel shelling out a ton of cash to convince Hugh Jackman to return. And he should have seen for himself how much the Marvel returnees in «No Way Home» were celebrated by the fans.
Deadpool 3 doesn’t have a release date yet. However, Levy has already confirmed that filming will probably not start in 2022. We therefore assume that «Deadpool 3» will be in cinemas in 2024 at the earliest.
