When Australian actor Hugh Jackman announced he won't be playing Wolverine anymore after 'Logan', many were left with broken hearts.
But now, fans are again jumping with joy at the news of Jackman teaming up with Ryan Reynolds for 'Deadpool 3' to reprise his role as Wolverine.
Ryan Reynolds announced on his social media that Jackman will return as Wolverine as part of Deadpool’s debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe - it is the first time he will be portraying the character since 'Logan' in 2017.
“Hey everyone, we’re extremely sad to have missed D23, but we’ve been working very hard on the next Deadpool film for a good long while now,” Reynolds says in the video. “I’ve had to really search my soul on this one. His first appearance in the MCU obviously needs to feel special. We need to stay true to the character, find new depth, motivation, meaning. Every Deadpool needs to stand out and stand apart. It’s been an incredible challenge that has forced me to reach down deep inside. And I…I have nothing. Yeah, just completely empty up here. And terrifying. But we did have one idea.”
