AceShowbiz - Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman have answered a burning question about Wolverine's return in "Deadpool 3". After announcing that the Aussie hunk will reprise the role in the upcoming movie, they returned on Wednesday, September 28 with a new video that addresses timeline concerns about the third Deadpool film.
"I had a lot of questions," Jackman says in the beginning of the video as he sits next to Reynolds. "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'." He references the 2017 film, which killed off Jackman's mutant character.
Reynolds chimes in as saying, " 'Logan' takes place in 2029. Totally separate thing. Logan died in 'Logan'. Not touching that." The duo appear to be about spilling the beans on their team-up as the "Red Notice" star says, "What actually happens in our film is these two f**king guys get out there...," before Wham!'s 1984 hit "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" interrupts and obscures their voices.
The two, however, continue chatting animatedly, seemingly acting out a fighting scene between their characters. After their enthusiastic but muted description, they give a shout-out to MCU head Kevin Feige. "Thank you, Kevin Feige!" Reynolds says, as Jackman echoes, "Love you, Kevin Feige!"
As for what they talk about in the video, Reynolds revealed in the caption, "1) Timeline questions 2) Logan canon 3) MCU FAQ 4) Whether we can do this all day or not." Jackman simply called it "some answers-ish."
Reynolds previously broke the news that Jackman agreed to return as Wolverine for "Deadpool 3" in a video shared on both actors' social media pages on Tuesday. Shawn Levy, who teamed up with Reynolds in "Free Guy" and "The Adam Project", will direct "Deadpool 3".
He weighed in on the announcement about Deadpool and Wolverine team-up as tweeting, "I want to take minute to thank #StrangerThings for training me to keep my big mouth shut. This news has been burning a hole in my lips for weeks now."
Meanwhile, James Mangold who directed "Logan", which was believed to end Wolverine's story, responded to the news with a gif of a scene from the 2017 movie.
