In a video uploaded to his social media accounts, the actor/writer/producer of the franchise announced the film’s release date, which will be September 6, 2024. However, he also revealed who would star alongside him in the new movie: Hugh Jackman as Wolverine.
The actor retired after Logan in 2017, so it’s a shock that he could be talked into returning. Maybe the possibility of joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe played a role in his decision.
“We’re extremely sad to have missed D23, but we’ve been working very hard on the next Deadpool film for, uh, a good long while now,” Reynolds says in the video “I’ve had to really search my soul on this one His debut in the MCU, of course, has to be unique. It is essential that we remain authentic to the character. They must have new impetus and reasoning, new significance. Every Deadpool needs to stand out and stand apart It’s been a difficult task that has pushed me to dig deep inside myself. And I…I have nothing Yeah…Just…completely.. empty up here And terrifying But we did have one idea.”
Reynolds then questions from his seat on the couch:”Hey, Hugh, you want to play Wolverine one more time?” This is when Jackman walks into the frame behind him and takes a bite out of an apple. As he climbs some stairs, he replies: “Yeah, sure, Ryan.” The video concludes with the punchline which you can find below.
