Watch out for claws! Wolverine will be back against Deadpool in the 3rd installment of the adventures of the trashy superhero. Hugh Jackman has given a small hint as to how the clawed mutant will return.
Expected for November 6, 2024, Deadpool 3 will have the honor of opening the doors to phase 6 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Last September, Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds announced that Wolverine and Deadpool were going to join forces in this 3rd opus, arousing the excitement of Marvel fans.
When he came to Paris as part of the promotion of The Son, in theaters on March 1, Hugh Jackman gave a little hint on how Wolverine will return in Deadpool 3.
Asked by The Parisianthe comedian revealed that he will play a “dual role” alongside Ryan Reynolds.
“Ryan and I have been friends for twenty years, we have a lot of fun. We are filming this summer. That’s why I’m so happy to be in Paris at the moment and to be able to enjoy French gastronomy. Because Very soon, I’m going to have to go on a strict diet to remake my Wolverine body: steamed chicken and broccoli!”he confided.

What exactly does “dual role” mean? Hugh Jackman did not specify, remaining mysterious on this screenplay detail. Will Wolverine have to face a clone of himself, like in Logan in 2017? Will the clawed mutant face a double from another universe?
Ever since Spider-Man No Way Home, the multiverse has come into play in the MCU. It would therefore not be surprising to see two different Wolverines in Deadpool 3. But let the fans be reassured, Hugh Jackman had assured in November 2022 that the character would always be as “choleric, acerbic and grumpy”although he is older.
Logan will therefore not be wiser in the face of the squeaky Deadpool. “There’s no choice because he’s going to take a lot of low blows from Ryan Reynolds, let me tell you. Physically, of course”he joked.
However, if Logan’s double has a shy and withdrawn character, it could be quite funny to see him face the gruff and taciturn Wolverine on the big screen. If Deadpool comes to add his trashy and facetious side, the cocktail can be explosive.
Answer on November 6, 2024. In the meantime, Hugh Jackman is playing The Son.
