Hugh Jackman made a promise to fans that his comeback as Wolverine in the upcoming "Deadpool 3" wouldn't interfere with "Logan," the 2017 "X-Men" tentpole that brought the superhero's movie arc to a close by murdering him off. According to a first look of "Deadpool 3" posted on Ryan Reynolds' and Jackman's Instagram accounts, Wolverine is wearing his traditional yellow-and-blue comic book outfit. Considering that the superhero has never before worn this outfit on the big screen, it appears that this is not the version of Wolverine that Jackman previously played.
Production on "Deadpool 3" is currently underway. The movie is being directed by Shawn Levy, who most recently worked with Ryan Reynolds on "Free Guy" and the blockbuster Netflix feature "The Adam Project." Although nothing is known about the movie's narrative, it obviously incorporates the multiverse because Deadpool is the first Fox-produced character to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Ryan Reynolds claims that Hugh Jackman's portrayal of Wolverine in "Deadpool 3" is a "divergence" from the "X-Men" movies and "something completely new."
Returning actors Morena Baccarin and Brianna Hildebrand, as well as newcomers Emma Corrin and Matthew Macfadyen, will appear in "Deadpool 3" alongside Jackman and Reynolds. Additionally, Jennifer Garner will reprise her role as Elektra from Ben Affleck's 2003 film "Daredevil" and her own spinoff film from 2005, returning to the role after an almost 20-year absence.
When Levy agreed to direct the film, he explained to Collider last year that keeping the franchise's R-rated edge was crucial. To put it another way, just because "Deadpool 3" is a Disney film doesn't imply that it won't contain profanity and pornographic humor. Last year, "Deadpool 3" authors Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese emphasized that Disney would not change the franchise's R rating.
The group told The Playlist, "They are going to let Deadpool be Deadpool, you know?" Although it's possible that one joke in particular might be the one for which people say, "You know, that's too far," up to this moment, there has only been support.
"All we've heard is, 'How can we help you?' What would you like to use from our universe? How can we simplify your life? Additionally, we'll let Deadpool be Deadpool. This won't be the Disney-fied Deadpool, we promise. Reese also mentioned Marvel's opinions on the future of the franchise. They are therefore awesome, and it is now our responsibility to uphold and vindicate that faith.
The release date for "Deadpool 3" is slated for May 3, 2024.
