Marvel star Hugh Jackman has surprised fans with a new look as filming for Deadpool 3 gets underway. The actor took to Twitter on Tuesday to share a photo of himself sporting a salt-and-pepper beard and a hairstyle reminiscent of his iconic character, Wolverine. The picture, captured in black and white, was accompanied by a simple caption: “LFG!”
While the exact details of Deadpool 3‘s plot remain a closely guarded secret, lead actor Ryan Reynolds has been actively involved in developing the script alongside Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick, and Zeb Wells. Reynolds has expressed his desire to bring Jackman back into the fold for this highly anticipated installment.

In an interview with ET Canada, Reynolds shared his excitement about the project, stating, “It’s been fun… He and I are both really excited. We’ve wanted to do this for a decade. So, to have this opportunity now is, I think actually weirdly, the perfect time… I never stopped trying to recruit Jackman. I was just pestering him like a gnat over the last many years. I actually believe in timing, as much as hard work and luck and all those intersections that are supposed to meet, timing is a big one as well, and I think he was ready. I think he was excited, and what we pitched him was enough of a divergence from the character that he knows and the character that he’s left behind, that it gives him something completely new to play and something that he’s really excited to do.”
In addition to Hugh Jackman’s return as Wolverine, Deadpool 3 will feature Ryan Reynolds reprising his role as the irreverent Merc with a Mouth. Other familiar faces from the previous films include Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Karan Soni as Dopinder, Morena Baccarin as Vanessa, Rob Delaney as Peter, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Shioli Kutsuna as Yukio, and Stefan Kapičić.
Fans can mark their calendars for the release of Deadpool 3 on May 3, 2024, and prepare themselves for another action-packed and humor-filled adventure with their favorite anti-hero.
