If you’re like us, you probably can’t wait to see “Deadpool 3” as this next sequel in the franchise is expected to include the likes of Wolverine played by Hugh Jackman! In a recent interview, Ryan Reynolds teased that this Wolverine will be “something completely new.”

“It’s been fun,” Reynolds said of Deadpool 3 to ET Canada. “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 just think… I 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.”

At this time, not many details are known about this film as no plot details have been revealed. Additionally, we’re not even sure how the film will relate to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the 20th Century Fox X-Men movies.

All we know about the film comes from a Tweet from Ryan Reynolds from January 2021, which stated the following: “It’s critical to have open, honest and healthy discussions around mental health. By retweeting #BellLetsTalk you can make a difference,” Reynolds tweeted at the time. “In case that’s not enough, before Disney bought Fox, Deadpool 3 was gonna be a road trip between Deadpool and Logan. Rashomon style. For real.”
