Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds (kind of) tease how their characters will interact in Deadpool 3

In a humorous video released on Ryan Reynolds' twitter account, Reynolds shares about searching his soul for what will set the new Deadpool movie apart

Update: 9/28/22 with new video

We knew it was coming, but we didn't know when. Hugh Jackman is back as Wolverine-- this time making an appearance in the third Deadpool movie.

In a video released on Ryan Reynolds' Twitter account Tuesday afternoon, Reynolds speaks to the audience about how hard he and his team has been working on the new Deadpool movie-- the first to enter the MCU. "Every Deadpool needs to stand out and stand apart... and I have nothing," he confesses to the audience.

That is, before he drops the bomb, "But we did have one idea," he says, addressing... Hugh Jackman who is walking across the background. "Hey Hugh, you want to play Wolverine one more time?"

"Sure, Ryan," Jackman says after a short pause and before ascending a staircase.

Then we are shown the Deadpool logo, which is quickly slashed by Wolverine claw marks and the movie's release date, which is September 6, 2024.

But that isn't all! Early on Wednesday, we were graced with yet another comedic video, this time with Hugh Jackman starring alongside Reynolds. In this video they promise information about timelines and how Wolverine actually comes to be in the film, but of course, their dramatic interpretation is drowned out by the boppy tones of Wham!'s 'Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go." This explanation is followed by some photographs over the years of Ryan Reyolds and Hugh Jackman's fabled friendship.

Watch the video below. Any lip readers out there?

The most recent Deadpool movie, Deadpool 2, was released by 20th Century Fox in 2018 following the very successful release of Deadpool in 2016. Now, after Disney has acquired Fox in 2019, the company has moved to collapse what had previously been considered Fox properties into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including using the term 'mutants' to describe characters like Kamala Khan a.k.a. Ms. Marvel. This collapse now apparently includes Wolverine, probably the world's most popular mutant, joining the Marvel Studios scene alongside the also wildly successful previously- Fox film property Deadpool.
