The rumours have persisted for a long while but it now seems that Deadpool will indeed be back for a third installment and that he might be bringing a friend with him. In today’s tweet, Ryan Reynolds posted a video saying that they’d thought long and hard about what would be fun to do for a third Deadpool movie and had come up with almost nothing.
Then they casually asked Hugh Jackman, who – it seems – has agreed to reprise his version of Wolverine in the film… and now there’s a release date of 6th September 2024. In just a few hours the video has managed over 3 million hits, confirming that there’s an eager audience for the project.
Jackman had previously said that he was done with the character after the seminal R-rated ‘Logan‘ came out in 2017 and seemed to draw a line under his tenure. However, Jackman and Reynolds have always enjoyed a good friendship, several business ventures together and much infamous online ‘fremenemy’ banter and the twitter video seemed an obvious way to officially announce their plans…
