20th Century Fox
Hugh Jackman will enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe alongside Ryan Reynolds in “Deadpool 3,” which is set to hit theaters on September 6, 2024.
Reynolds, who has portrayed “Mercy with a Mouth” on several 20th Century Fox projects, announced via social media that he and Jackman are ready to co-star in Deadpool’s first role as Disney its origin.
“Hey everyone, we’re so sad to lose D23, but we’ve been working hard on the next ‘Deadpool’ movie for a long time now,” Reynolds said in the video, sitting on his couch. “I had to really find my soul in this. His MCU debut obviously needs to feel special. We need to stay true to the character, find new depth, and motivate which means every Deadpool needs to stand out and stand apart About it. It was an incredible challenge that forced me to go deeper.”
“Hey, Hugh, do you want to play Wolverine again?” asks Reynolds as Jackman walks into the back of the shot.
Jackman replies: “Yeah, definitely Ryan.”
Disney had previously said Deadpool would be integrated into the MCU, but it wasn’t clear when the character would get a standalone movie and where it would fit into the larger expanse of the multiverse.
Deadpool is one of several comic book properties that Disney acquired when it bought 20th Century Fox in 2019. The X-Men and the Fantastic Four are also set to appear in movies over the next few years.
Reynolds Deadpool movies are rare in Hollywood. Both “Deadpool” and “Deadpool 2” are rated R and have each earned more than $780 million globally. Perhaps that’s why Disney agreed to let Deadpool 3 be rated as R, even though the rest of the MCU movies are rated PG-13 or lower.
