Deadpool 3 Release Date: Wolverine Set to Return in Highly Anticipated Sequel

The Merc with a Mouth is back! After months of speculation, it has finally been confirmed that Deadpool 3 is set to hit theaters on July 26, 2024. The highly anticipated threequel will see Ryan Reynolds reprise his role as the fan-favorite foul-mouthed superhero Deadpool. But the biggest news is that Hugh Jackman will also return as the iconic Wolverine, marking the character’s first appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

Deadpool 3 Finally Confirmed for 2024

Deadpool 3 has been in development for years, with Reynolds constantly hinting that it was on the way. However, it wasn’t until September 2022 that the project was officially announced. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirmed that Deadpool 3 would be the first R-rated installment in the MCU. The news came after Disney acquired 20th Century Fox, opening the door for the X-Men characters to join the MCU.

Fans have been eager to see Deadpool interact with characters like Spider-Man and the Avengers. While details are scarce, it’s expected that Deadpool 3 will embrace the over-the-top violence and meta-humor that defined the first two Deadpool films.

Hugh Jackman Returning as Wolverine

But the biggest question was how Wolverine would factor into the story. Jackman retired from the role after 2017’s Logan, which served as a poignant sendoff. Logan saw an aged Wolverine sacrificing himself to save Laura, his young mutant clone. The gripping drama was lightyears apart from Jackman’s previous X-Men outings and seemed like the perfect swan song.

So how will Wolverine return for Deadpool 3? The leading theory is that it will involve the multiverse, a concept that has been a major component of recent MCU films like Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Perhaps this will be a variant of Wolverine from another universe. Or maybe Deadpool will use time travel or reality-hopping to team up with the iconic mutant. Either way, the return of Jackman’s Wolverine already has fans buzzing with excitement.

Long-Awaited Team-Up On the Big Screen

Deadpool and Wolverine have a long history in the comics, though their big-screen team-up will be the first live-action pairing of the two fan favorites. Their contrasting personalities lead to plenty of dysfunctional (and hilarious) dynamics. Foul-mouthed Deadpool’s penchant for breaking the fourth wall is also sure to clash with the ultra-serious, hot-headed Wolverine.

Early rumors suggest that Wolverine will play a major role in Deadpool 3, perhaps even serving as a co-lead alongside Deadpool. The two are expected to embark on a globe-trotting adventure full of wisecracks and over-the-top action. If the first official poster is any indication, the banter between Deadpool and Wolverine will be a huge draw.

Shawn Levy Directing, Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick Writing

Deadpool 3 is set to be directed by Shawn Levy, best known for helming the Night at the Museum films and recent hits like Free Guy and The Adam Project. Levy has proven adept at balancing humor and heart, which should be a great match for Deadpool’s signature tone.

Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, the writers behind the first two Deadpool films, also return to pen the script. Their involvement ensures that Deadpool 3 will stay true to what fans loved about the original films. Levy, Reese, and Wernick will collaborate closely with Reynolds, who is heavily involved in shaping the project.

Plot Details Still Under Wraps

Plot details remain tightly under wraps. But the return of Deadpool and Wolverine alone has fans ready to line up on opening night. These two titans of the X-Men franchise will finally unite on the big screen in what is sure to be a riotous team-up for the ages.

While 2024 feels far away, Reynolds promises that Deadpool 3 will be worth the wait. Little is known about how the film will fit into the broader MCU. But the prospect of seeing Deadpool and Wolverine side-by-side already has audiences more hyped than ever for the Merc with a Mouth’s Marvel Cinematic Universe debut.

Deadpool 3 is poised to break new ground as the first R-rated entry in the MCU. And the return of Hugh Jackman’s iconic Wolverine should make the zany sequel a must-see film event. So mark your calendars for July 26, 2024. That’s when Deadpool and Wolverine’s insane buddy comedy hits the big screen at long last.
