“Hey everyone, we’re extremely sad to have missed D23, but we’ve been working very hard on the next Deadpool film for a good long while now,” Reynolds says in the video. “I’ve had to really search my soul on this one. His first appearance in the MCU obviously needs to feel special. We need to stay true to the character, find new depth, motivation, meaning. Every Deadpool needs to stand out and stand apart. It’s been an incredible challenge that has forced me to reach down deep inside. And I…I have nothing. Yeah, just completely empty up here. And terrifying. But we did have one idea.”

Jackman then enters the frame, as Reynolds asks him if he wants to make a Wolverine return in the upcoming film. “Hey, Hugh, you want to play Wolverine one more time?” Reynolds asks. “Yeah, sure, Ryan,” Hugh replies.

Following up on 2018’s Deadpool 2, The highly anticipated third instalment will hit theatres on September 6, 2024. It will mark the first time Jackman has whipped out the claws since he played the iconic DC character in 2017’s Logan.

Reynolds first suited up as Deadpool in the 2009 Fox/Marvel movie X-Men: Origins: Wolverine. From there, Marvel served up a pair of Deadpool movies in 2016 and 2018, which grossed a combined USD$1.56 billion at the box office.
