Hugh Jackman took the internet by storm on Monday when he shared the first look at Wolverine in Deadpool 3 on Instagram. The post, which has since been deleted, showed Jackman in his classic yellow and black Wolverine suit, standing next to Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool. The caption simply read, “Don’t blink.”
The image has sent fans into a frenzy, as it is the first confirmation that Jackman will be reprising his role as Wolverine in the upcoming film. Jackman previously said that he was done playing Wolverine after Logan, but he has since hinted that he might be open to returning for one more film.
In a recent interview, Jackman said that he was “excited” to be working with Reynolds on Deadpool 3. “Ryan is a great guy, and I’m a big fan of Deadpool,” he said. “I think it’s going to be a lot of fun.”
The Deadpool franchise is known for its irreverent humor and fourth-wall-breaking antics, so it will be interesting to see how Jackman’s Wolverine fits into that world. However, based on the first look, it seems like Jackman is up for the challenge.
The Deadpool franchise has been a huge success for 20th Century Fox, grossing over $1.5 billion worldwide. The third film is expected to be released in November 2024.
The franchise began in 2016 with the release of Deadpool, which starred Ryan Reynolds as the titular character. The film was a critical and commercial success, grossing over $780 million worldwide. A sequel, Deadpool 2, was released in 2018 and was also a success, grossing over $785 million worldwide.
The Deadpool films are known for their irreverent humor and fourth-wall-breaking antics. The characters are also known for their meta-awareness, often breaking the fourth wall to address the audience directly. This has led to the films being praised for their originality and humor.
The third Deadpool film is expected to be released in November 2024. It will be directed by Shawn Levy and written by Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick, and Ryan Reynolds. The film is expected to be part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
