While Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine has already been announced to join Deadpool 3, we might be seeing more of X-Men joining him. Although there haven’t been any official announcements yet, fans have received a reliable tip on Twitter about the X-Men‘s cast involvement in Deadpool 3.
Deadpool 3 stars Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman are known to share off-screen frenemy banters that keep us all entertained. This has kept fans even more excited to see the actors share on-screen space. It was officially announced in September 2022 that Hugh Jackman will be reprising his role as Wolverine in Deadpool 3. The announcement was made in completely Ryan Reynolds’ comedy style where Hugh Jackman casually walks by and agrees to be a part of the movie. Reynolds had taken to his social media handles where he discussed how he was soul-searching while working on Deadpool 3 and had one idea.
“Hey Hugh, wanna play Wolverine one more time?”
“Yeah, sure, Ryan.”
Reynolds and Jackman also answered some fan questions post their announcement.
“I’m sure you had a lot of questions. But rest assured; we’re going to answer them right now. Like, for example, how is Wolverine alive after Logan?”
“Logan takes place in 2029, totally separate thing. Logan died in (the movie) Logan, not touching that.”
Who Else is Joining Deadpool 3?
According to CanWeGetSomeToast’s Twitter, it has since been revealed that Hugh will be joined by some other old friends from X-Men. The tweet stated that we will be seeing Storm, Jean Gray, and Cyclops reprising their roles in the third instalment of Deadpool 3. The mutants are played by actors Halle Berry, Famke Janssen, and James Marsden. The rumours of Halle Berry returning as Storm were also doing rounds when she uploaded a picture on her social media rocking her short silver locks a couple of weeks ago.
