It’s been a long-running joke between Reynolds and Jackman to re-unite as Wolverine and Deadpool but Marvel studios are now making the dream come true for ‘Deadpool 3.’
Reynolds took to social media to announce the news in typical Reynolds fashion.
Shawn Levy, who made ‘Free Guy’ and ‘The Adam Project’ with Reynolds, is directing ‘Deadpool 3,’ which will officially join the Marvel Cinematic Universe after Disney’s purchase of 20th Century Fox. Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who penned the first two ‘Deadpool’ films, returned to write the third. Reese has previously confirmed that ‘Deadpool 3’ will remain R-rated, even within the family-friendly MCU.
Jackman was last seen as Wolverine in 2016’s R-rated ‘Logan,’ directed by James Mangold. Wolverine famously died in the end of the film, and Jackman has repeatedly stated that the film was his swan song in the role. So it’s unclear how he’ll appear.

Reynolds and Jackman have a long superhero history together. Reynolds first appeared as the character in 2009’s ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine,’ which was the first ‘X-Men’ spinoff to focus on Jackman’s character. That version of Deadpool, however, had his mouth sewn shut and did not feature his iconic red-and-black costume. Several years later, Reynolds got another go-round as the wise-cracking assassin in a proper, R-rated movie.
