The Wolverine cast is very familiar with the one person we see after all the time in the umbrella version of Fox. And after licensing Mutants back to Marvel Studios as the home of Marvel characters, it had to change who the actors were for that role in its own version of the MCU.
But as we know, Deadpool brought the guy in the post-credits second film, but the MCU confirmed that Deadpool won’t be rebooting. Based on that, will Hugh Jackman (Logan) return as Wolverine in Deadpool 3?
Hugh Jackman Potentially Returns to Playing Wolverine in Deadpool 3
As we all know, there are a lot of cool friendships between actors in Hollywood. And the relationship between the two has undoubtedly brought them closer personally and professionally as well.
Or in other words, making one of the actors appear in his best friend’s film even though it’s clear that the actor doesn’t want to retire from his specific role. Now that definition or statement, there is no denying that it is very fitting to describe the friendly relationship between Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool).
Anyway, ever since the two of them worked together in X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009), the two have been like true friends. As a result, it’s not surprising that later Jackman wants to appear again (even if it’s only a scene modification) as Wolverine in the post-credits of Deadpool 2 (2018).
Hugh Jackman in Deadpool 3?
Then as quoted from the Wikipedia page Jackman’s filmography. The Australian actor also appeared in Reynolds’ hit comedy-drama Free Guy (2021). He is specifically credited as “The Masked Player in the Alley”.
Now based on all these facts and also the fact that the Deadpool 3 movie will be released under the MCU banner. So don’t be surprised if fans have predicted that Hugh Jackman will return as Wolverine in Deadpool 3.
Now the rumors or speculations are getting more legit through uploading photos with the status of a red-faced emoji uploaded via Jackman’s official Twitter account below.
Yes, as you can see, the photo only shows the 53-year-old actor staring at his smartphone with a shocked and flushed face. This alias photo has hundreds or even thousands of meanings.
But yes, after seeing this photo, both fans and ScreenRant immediately assumed. Specifically, the assumption is that Hugh Jackman is reading text messages or chat offers to return as Wolverine in Deadpool 3.
But again, this is all 100% speculation. But if these speculations are true, then it’s definitely going to be pretty cool. Because after 5 years after his last appearance as Wolverine in the cool film Logan (2017), Jackman returned to the role that catapulted his name and career. So what do you think of yourself?
And based on what happened earlier when Professor X didn’t get a star change, is it possible that Jackman will return as Wolverine in Deadpool 3?
