Courtesy of a lip-reading evaluation from Twitter user Jomboy, we now have a clearer idea of what was said. From what Jomboy can make out, neither Jackman nor Reynolds says anything spoiler-worthy for Deadpool 3. Following the news that Jackman would reprise his role as Wolverine for the third film, the two actors sat down and promised fans to answer any burning questions they had.
Echoing the Stranger Things writers’ prank of pixelating the entire plot to Season 5 last week, Jackman and Reynolds knew how to troll the fans perfectly. Sadly, we received no spoilers, just a snippet of ‘Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go’ by Wham!
For the most part, the lip-reading, as far as Jomboy can decipher, is a torrent of swear words, a massive explosion, and threats of physical violence that they’d inflict on one another. Plus, it’s doubtful either of the actors would reveal actual spoilers for a film two years away from a cinematic release. Regardless, the lip-reading clip is worth viewing as Jackman and Reynolds seemingly spew absolute nonsense to the camera – and have the time of their lives doing it.

“We’re gonna have this massive, massive, huge, huge fucking explosion,” says Jackman. He later adds that he’s “alive too, but you really have to see this because we’re in our prime… I’m so excited you’re just going to fucking love it.”
“It’s going to be the best,” Reynolds adds before clapping. Jomboy’s voiceover cuts out at this point, and we hear the remainder of the conversation, in which Reynolds and Jackman praise Kevin Feige. Guess we’ll need to wait until 2024 to find out how it all pans out.
However, we may already know more about the plot than we think – since Reynolds seemingly revealed a major plot point in January 2021. While promoting the mental health awareness campaign, Bell Let’s Talk, Reynolds teased that Deadpool 3 would be a “road trip” between the ‘merc with a mouth’ and Wolverine. “Rashomon style. For real.” he adds.
