Hugh Jackmans time as Wolverine looked set to end in the 2017 season Logan. In a recent video shared by social media, Jackman revealed exactly when he knew it was possible to leave the role behind.
In a recent video shared on Twitter, Jackman speaks to someone on the computer and recalls the first time he saw Deadpool. According to the actor, that moment was exactly when he knew he might have messed up in stepping aside from the role of Wolverine, even referencing the Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy film 48 Hrs.
When I was honest, twenty minutes into Deadpool, I was only allowed to watch the movie 48 Hrs., and the movie “Nolte/Eddie Murphy”. I was like a damnit, Damni. What did I do? What’ve I done? Nope, you said no. You were right. I did it. Oh and I did it.

Of course, since all thought the idea of a movie Deadpool and Wolverine is impossible, the crew behind Deadpool 3 have discovered a way. Now, Jackman will have the chance to star in a movie that will take place in the most sprawling Marvel Cinematic Universe, although it remains unclear what’ll happen to the film.
Deadpool 3 is being written byRhett Reese and Paul Wernick from a previous draft byBobs Burgersduo Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin. Since the first two movies were made, President Kevin Feige told fans that it will remain an R-rated film, which would make it the studio’s first movie with the same mature rating.
It is the first movie of the Deeppool series to be released since Disney acquired 20th Century Fox. The movie will be published on November 8, 2024.
Both the first two films were box-office success: they earned an average worldwide gross of over 1,5 billion dollars. Both of them were written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, with the first directed by Tim Miller and the other two directed by David Leitch.
