Hugh Jackman has hinted at how Deadpool 3 and Wolverine’s arc in Logan fit into the more extensive Marvel timeline.
One of the most significant comic book movie announcements of the year was Jackman’s inclusion in Marvel Studios’ Deadpool 3, which gave the Australian actor one final chance to play the mutant with Adamantium in his debut MCU film. But after Leslie Uggams’ Blind Al, he joined the cast as the third member, raising a crucial question: How on earth is Wolverine alive in this movie?
Marvel fans still recall Wolverine’s tragic passing in the 2017 Oscar-winning film Logan, a canonical matter that Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman addressed in a second video after the initial one promising Jackman’s MCU debut.
And now, as work on the much-awaited MCU threequel begins, Jackman made it abundantly evident how Deadpool 3 relates to his previous Marvel film.
Hugh Jackman Confirms Deadpool 3 & Logan Timeline
Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds nearly broke the internet earlier this year when they revealed that Jackman would reprise his iconic role as Wolverine in the upcoming Deadpool 3 film. Most Marvel fans believed they would never see this happen, and it wasn’t just because Jackman had been adamant he wasn’t.
Since Wolverine’s story concluded clearly in 2017’s Logan, the concept of the character’s comeback raised many worries in fans’ minds about how exactly the character and Jackman would return. Now that he is talking openly about the character, Jackman clarifies when Deadpool 3 occurs in the storyline and discusses Logan director James Mangold’s response to the film.
Hugh Jackman discusses the friendship between Logan and Deadpool in DEADPOOL 3: “Logan’s frustrated by him wants to be a million miles away from him, or wants to punch him in the head. Unfortunately, he can’t be a million miles away from him, so I’m probably going to punch him in the head a lot.”
Jackman stated he was “very cool” with his homecoming and that Deadpool 3 “took place before” Logan when asked how Logan director James Mangold reacted to it.
Nobody “wanted to meddle with” the way Logan ended, according to Jackman, who also expressed his pride in his performance and said he was determined to continue playing the part until August 2022. Later, he continued to express his anticipation for the third MCU installment, hinting that he might have “more fun on that movie” than on any of his prior works.
Jackman said,” None of us wanted to screw with that, I was really proud of that movie and what we did, and it felt perfect. And actually, for five years, I was really, honestly, can tell you, I was kind of a hard done, I was like, this was it. It was August 14, I remember driving, and it just came to me like that. I just thought this would be so much fun. I’ll probably have more fun in that movie than anything I’ve ever done.”
He added,” This year. And on August 13, I was like, I’m never playing that part again. I promise you.”
