Following Ryan Reynolds’ shocking reveal that Hugh Jackman will be back as Wolverine for Deadpool 3, the duo have teamed up for a new video in which they almost explain Logan’s return.
The hilarious new video shared by Reynolds on social media sees the pair sitting down to answer fan questions about Jackman’s Wolverine return. However, they instead demonstrate their commitment to Marvel Studios’ strict anti-spoiler policy by blaring music over their answers.
While little is revealed, the video does drop one hint as to how Deadpool 3 may be handling Wolverine’s return and what it means for the character’s death in Logan.
Hugh Jackman Brings Wolverine To The MCU
The new video from Ryan Reynolds sees the Deadpool 3 star sitting down with Hugh Jackman to address Wolverine’s return, before their comments are drowned out by Wham!’s “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go.”
Before the music cuts them off, however, Reynolds mentions that “Logan takes place in 2029,” calling the film a “totally separate thing” and promising Deadpool 3 is “not touching that.” It sounds like Deadpool’s third outing is set before Logan, meaning Hugh Jackman can bring Wolverine back into the fold without undoing his last appearance’s ending for the character.

Interestingly, Deadpool referenced Logan’s death in Deadpool 2, albeit only in his signature fourth-wall-breaking style. That film’s post-credits scene may have even set up Hugh Jackman’s return, with a time-traveling Deadpool killing off the much-hated X-Men: Origins version of his character while encouraging Logan to one day “get back in the saddle again.”
Here’s the official synopsis for Deadpool 2, Ryan Reynolds’ most recent appearance as the Merc with a Mouth:
After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.
Directed by David Leitch from a script written by Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick & Ryan Reynolds, Deadpool 2 stars Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, Morena Baccarin, Julian Dennison, Zazie Beetz, T.J. Miller, Brianna Hildebrand, and Jack Kesy.
