Hugh Jackman and James Mangold, the director for Logan, have both wade in – (get it?) on the news of Wolverine’s unexpected but highly welcomed debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Deadpool 3. There’ll be no more terrible puns from this point on, promise. Jackman posted a gif of Wolverine’s death in Logan, and James Mangold shared his thoughts on the news.
“Oh my god, everybody chill,” Mangold posted to social media. “Just kidding! I’m all good! Logan will always be there. Multiverse or prequel, time warp or wormhole, canon or non-canon or even without a rationale, I cannot wait to see what madness my dear friends Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman cook up!” the post reads.
The 53-year-old Australian actor, who last appeared as the clawed hero in Logan (2017), met his demise in the film – which naturally leads to theories and speculation as to how Wolverine can make a comeback. The answer is pretty simple. The MCU is entering the Multiverse Saga, so anything is possible.
Oh my gosh! Everybody chill. Just kidding! I’m all good! LOGAN will always be there. Multiverse or prequel, time warp or worm hole, canon or non-canon or even without a rationale, I cannot wait to see what maddness my dear friends @VancityReynolds and @RealHughJackman cook up! pic.twitter.com/qaCG4Z39x4

However, both Reynolds and Jackman sat down and posted a small video on Twitter to answer the burning questions we want answering. They begin to discuss – at some considerable length – the apparent details of the plot for Deadpool 3 – save for Wham’s ‘Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go’ covering everything they say. They end the clip with a shout-out to Kevin Feige, and that’s it. Guess we’ll have to wait until 2024 to find out the details.
With a career as Wolverine spanning seventeen years, Jackman first donned the claws in X-Men at the turn of the century. Subsequently, in the lead-up to Logan, Jackman has reprised the role of Wolverine eight times. For more superhero stuff, FlickLuster recently reported that the first two Deadpool films, alongside Logan, had arrived on Disney Plus.
