Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool and Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine are facing off in the upcoming “Deadpool 3,” but don’t expect the two superheroes to hit it off as buddies. During a recent appearance on the “Empire Film Podcast,” Jackman said that Wolverine and Deadpool “hate each other” and teased their dynamic in the upcoming sequel, which will mark both characters’ first official outing in the Disney-owned Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“How do I classify it?” Jackman said when asked about the dynamic. “Ten is really approaching, zero is reality: we are zero; we are opposites, hating each other.”
“I’m just speaking from my perspective,” Jackman added. “[Logan is] disappointed by him [and] Wants to stay a million miles away from him or punch him in the head. Unfortunately, he can’t be a million miles away from that in this movie, so I’m probably going to punch him in the head.”
Other details about Jackman’s return as Wolverine remain under wraps. The actor previously teased that whatever happens in “Deadpool 3” will not interfere with the events of “Logan,” the 2017 tentpole that served as the actor’s swan song as Wolverine and even killed off the character at the end.
“This device is why they’re in the Marvel universe moving around the timeline,” Jackman told SiriusXM about his return. “Now we can go back because, you know, it’s science. So, I didn’t have to screw with the ‘Logan’ timeline, which was important to me. And I think probably the fans too.”
Jackman spoke exclusively diversity His excitement over the Wolverines game in October once again. “A little part of me now thinks I’ll be better at it,” he said. “Is it arrogance of age or something else? Wolverine is a tortured character—more tortured than I am. But I always get the feeling of her being comfortable in her own skin. And I’m more comfortable in my own skin now, even though it’s messy.”
“Deadpool 3” is gearing up to begin production in May 2023 The film is set to open in theaters on November 8, 2024 from Disney.
