Earlier tonight, Deadpool 3 star Ryan Reynolds shared an announcement teaser, release date, and poster for the Merc With a Mouth's highly-anticipated MCU debut - but what really broke the internet was the massive reveal that Hugh Jackman would be returning as Wolverine.

Jackman famously "retired" as the fan-favorite mutant hero when he laid Wolvie to rest (literally) in James Mangold's Logan. The critically-acclaimed movie was widely viewed as a fitting swansong for the character, so while many fans are looking forward to this team-up, the news of the Academy Award-nominated actor's reprisal wasn't met with unbridled enthusiasm by everyone.

Shortly after the video did the rounds, Mangold took to Twitter to share the following.

Should we take this as a sign that the Indiana Jones 5 director is of the opinion that Jackman's take on Wolverine should stay buried? Well, he did follow up his initial Tweet with this, so it doesn't look like there's any genuine hard feelings!

We have no idea how Logan will factor into the story, but there's plenty of comic book material to draw inspiration from. Reynolds has previously revealed that, prior to Disney's takeover of 20th Century Fox, his original pitch for a third Deadpool film focused on a "Rashomon-style" road trip with Wade and Wolvie, so perhaps elements of that idea carried over?

Whatever happens in Deadpool 3, we can't see Jackman staying on as the MCU's version of Wolverine beyond this one project.

The third Deadpool movie will be directed by Shawn Levy, and is set to hit theaters on September 6, 2024.

@TheUnworthyThor - Ah my 11 year old self loved this movie, begged my mom for the VHS when it came out. It was $18.99 lol
TheUnworthyThor - 9/28/2022, 9:06 AM
@abd00bie - I was 13 when the movie came out and I remember it being the first time I was ever truly disappointed walking out of a movie theater. Except by Alicia Silverstone, her status as my celebrity crush only grew.
MosquitoFarmer - 9/27/2022, 11:08 PM
Oh god, people want to make a mountain out of a molehill. Mangold and Jackman are working compatriots. Circumstantially, I all but guarantee there are no hard feelings.
RolandD - 9/27/2022, 11:16 PM
@MosquitoFarmer - He already said as much and it’s in the article. Pleas see gif above.
MosquitoFarmer - 9/27/2022, 11:49 PM
@RolandD - Yes, I saw. Now please realize that my comment is still apt.
RolandD - 9/28/2022, 12:54 AM
@MosquitoFarmer - Okay. I see your point, but not the necessity of your comment under the circumstances. 😉
MosquitoFarmer - 9/28/2022, 2:35 AM
@RolandD - What does necessity have to do with this site?
RolandD - 9/28/2022, 10:35 AM
@MosquitoFarmer - 😂🤣 Can’t argue with that.
dracula - 9/27/2022, 11:12 PM
id rather he not

unlike tobey and andrew, Hugh already had a perfect send off

dracula - 9/27/2022, 11:47 PM
@AmazingFILMporg - uhhhh.....that is one thing I am not on board with

what is the point of dopplegangers of characters we dont have the main versions of yet. enjoyed doctor strange 2 but really the illuminati wasnt that needed

best multiverse stuff shows the differences between versions of characters (justice lords, crisis on earth x, spider verse)
AmazingFILMporg - 9/27/2022, 11:55 PM
@dracula -

Agree to disagree
TheSuperMex - 9/28/2022, 1:06 AM
@dracula - well now I need to see him In the Wolverine mask and then he can be done with the role.
OmegaBlack13 - 9/28/2022, 5:14 AM
@dracula - Agreed. Using the multiverse for memberberries instead of playing with the characters’ personality and history feels like such a waste.
AmazingFILMporg - 9/27/2022, 11:13 PM
We are in the multiverse saga. Logan happened and it was glorious. Logan and professor x are dead in THAT universe!

This will be a different Logan from another universe.

If Michael Myers can have Halloween 2, Halloween h20, H2 and soon Halloween ends as his finale then so can Logan💪
SonOfAGif - 9/27/2022, 11:20 PM
@AmazingFILMporg - I think people have this bizarre belief that the Multiverse somehow negates a prior storyline from happening. When Spider-Man No Way Home showed everyone that those original stories still exist in their own universes.
AmazingFILMporg - 9/27/2022, 11:21 PM
@SonOfAGif -

These people would hate star trek TNG😃
Reeds2Much - 9/27/2022, 11:25 PM
@SonOfAGif - If they think multiverses are confusing wait till they see the Scott Summers' Family Tree.

sickboy76 - 9/28/2022, 2:32 AM
@Reeds2Much -rachel Grey, Nathan summers,nate Grey, Ruby summers.just the first 4 I can think of off top of my head. Cyclops was a dirty dog in every universe.
Urubrodi - 9/28/2022, 3:46 AM
@SonOfAGif - You seem to be forgetting that you can have multiple universes where the character looks exactly the same. The Wolverine we encounter may not be the same as the one from Logan. Plus, Deadpool has a device that allows him to travel through time, so he could get meet Wolverine before the events of Logan happen. There are many paths they can take.
ObserverIO - 9/28/2022, 4:51 AM
@Urubrodi - Exactly, and I doubt this is MCU-616 Logan. This will be a Multiverse movie and I'm down like a bitch-ass clown for that joyride.
SonOfAGif - 9/28/2022, 6:53 PM
@Urubrodi - I never said that wasn't a possibility neither. My point was more aimed at those who believe these multiversal stories negate what came before. So if it's the Logan from Logan it still doesn't negate his film from having existed. And as you said perfectly this can another Wolverine variant from another universe. Because as it stands Deadpool will be new to the Universe-616 but coming from his universe.
Matchesz - 9/27/2022, 11:14 PM
Kind of wish No Way Home was a two parter do we could have had a better send off for Andrew and Tobey instead of them just vanishing
Reeds2Much - 9/27/2022, 11:17 PM

The meta levels would be off the charts.
cadunovaes01 - 9/27/2022, 11:17 PM
Logan is a masterpiece. To me, it's just one notch below Batman The Dark Knight, which is the best superhero movie ever made. And it sure is on the same shelf as Joker, Avengers Infinity War and Spider Man 2...
AmazingFILMporg - 9/27/2022, 11:19 PM
@cadunovaes01 -

Logan to me is top 5 of all-time

Infinity, endgame,tdk, Logan and Spiderman 2
cadunovaes01 - 9/27/2022, 11:20 PM
@AmazingFILMporg - Basically, same as mine hahaha
PatientXero - 9/27/2022, 11:41 PM
@cadunovaes01 - I respectfully disagree. For me, it’s Watchmen. But Dark Knight is amazballz!
cadunovaes01 - 9/28/2022, 12:51 AM
@PatientXero - You are right, my good sir. Watchmen deserves a place on my list!
CaptainDC - 9/28/2022, 10:24 AM
@cadunovaes01 - Couldn't agree more with this list!
ThorArms - 9/27/2022, 11:20 PM
Whooooo cares

We should all be so blessed to see Jackman as Logan one last time.
ModHaterSLADE - 9/27/2022, 11:28 PM
The more of those two trading quips the better. I'm even hoping they'll bring back Schreiber. He was a great Sabertooth.

You know what you must do

TheVandalore - 9/28/2022, 12:48 AM
@MasterMix - I think with Reynolds in charge, the suit at least appearing once if not legitimately being incorporated is all but definite.
