As filming for Deadpool 3 continues, Hollywood insider MyTimeToShineHello has revealed a promotional image for the movie that has Wolverine fans more hyped than ever. The image shows Ryan Reynolds reprising his role as Deadpool alongside Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, donning the iconic mask for the first time.
Hugh Jackman’s portrayal of Wolverine has never included the full comic-accurate costume, particularly the mask, until now in Deadpool 3. Despite expectations that Jackman would retire the character after 2017’s Logan, his return in this upcoming film adds an exciting new chapter to his legacy as the X-Men hero before his rumoured appearance in Avengers: Secret Wars.
Deadpool 3 holds special significance as it marks the character’s entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe following Disney’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox. The film is set to maintain the R-rating that has been a hallmark of the Deadpool series, even under the Disney umbrella.
Who is working on Deadpool 3 and when will the first trailer hit the web?
Deadpool 3 has resumed filming following the conclusion of the recent Hollywood strikes, with Shawn Levy at the helm as director. This project is particularly notable as it reunites Levy with Ryan Reynolds, following their successful collaboration on Free Guy and The Adam Project. Additionally, the film marks another reunion for Levy, this time with Hugh Jackman, whom he previously directed in Real Steel.
The Deadpool 3 script was developed by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, the writers behind the first two films in the series, with the Molyneux sisters having worked on an earlier draft.
While the release of Deadpool 3 is still some way off, Marvel fans can look forward to getting a first glimpse of the movie soon. Given that it is the only Marvel feature slated for release in 2024, expectations are high for a significant promotional push. A trailer reveal during the Super Bowl would not be surprising, considering the film’s solo release spot in Marvel’s 2024 release schedule.
Deadpool 3 is currently scheduled to hit theaters on July 26, 2024. Stay tuned for more updates!
