INTRO: (Is Deadpool 3 with wolverine a good idea?)

So in a bizarre announcement yesterday, Ryan Reynolds took to social media to reveal Deadpool 3 would be coming in 2024, and it would also include a return from Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine. There’s much excitement yet also critiques surrounding this announcement and in this video, I’m going to be giving you my thoughts on the news and discussing the potential pros and cons of this reveal. Before I get into it though, if you want to see more articles on Deadpool 3 and Marvel’s upcoming slate in the future, then don’t forget to support this article. But without further ado, let’s dive into my thoughts on Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine in Deadpool 3.

So last night, Ryan Reynolds took to social media to announce in a promo video that Deadpool 3 is on the way, and out of nowhere, he also revealed that Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine would be returning one final time. In the video announcement, which you can find in the description of these uploads, Reynolds said, “We’re extremely sad to have missed D23, but we’ve been working very hard on the next ‘Deadpool’ film for a good long while now. I’ve had to search my soul on this one and his first appearance in the MCU needs to feel special. We need to stay true to the character and find new depth, motivation, and meaning. Every ‘Deadpool’ needs to stand out and stand apart. It’s been an incredible challenge that has forced me to reach down deep inside. And I…I have nothing. Yeah, just empty up here and terrifying. But we did have one idea.” And in the background, Hugh Jackman walks past and Reynolds says, “Hey, Hugh, do you want to play Wolverine one more time?”, and he replied, “Yeah, sure, Ryan,”. The reveal ends with Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” re-titled as “I will always love Hugh” and the Deadpool logo appears, eventually sliced up by Wolverine’s claws to announce that this is going to be the 3rd Deadpool film. So as expected a quite comedic reveal in the vein of something like No Way Home, gets everyone excited for yet another crossover or cameo role.

YES, WOLVERINE IN DEADPOOL 3 IS EXCITING: (Is Deadpool 3 with wolverine a good idea?)

So what do I think of the news and what does this mean for the addition of Wolverine in Deadpool 3? Well, like many have pointed out Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine will likely either be a multiverse version of the character or a version from before the events of Logan, which of course had the character die in a final swan song to that storyline. Now I can’t sit here and say this isn’t an exciting announcement from a fan perspective, because it is. I love Jackman’s take on Wolverine and his character has been involved in some of the best comic book films of all time, whether that be with the first two X-Men films, Days Of Future Past, or course Logan. On top of that, the Deadpool films themselves have been solid, and in the previous entries, they’ve made jokes and references towards the legacy of Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine and the previous X-men origins film which included both him and Ryan Reynolds Deadpool, so it’s fitting in that regard. So yes, on one side I’m completely excited to see these two characters cross paths, and with it taking place in a multiverse where anything is possible and you can involve a period before the events of Logan, then logically it can happen.

MY WORRIES FOR DEADPOOL 3 IN THE MCU: (Is Deadpool 3 with wolverine a good idea?)

The question that has me slightly on the fence though, is whether should it happen, and whether is it a good idea. Now it’s ideal to point out that even James Mangold, the director of Logan, has come out in a subtle reply to this news and while he clarified that he’s excited to see what they do with Deadpool 3, he also reminded us of the cultural impact of Logan’s ending and how that felt like a fitting end to what we saw with Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine. Again, for me, it isn’t a question of whether can this happen, because it clearly can with all the multiversal structures in place. But should it? I mean Deadpool is the ultimate 4th wall breaker who could easily cross paths with Jackman’s take on Wolverine in the MCU, but after witnessing a storyline come to an end so perfectly, I don’t how I feel about a final appearance from him in a movie that stimulates from the type of fan service that No Way Home brought back in 2021. And I’m someone who quite liked No Way Home. I think the film itself doesn’t have the greatest sense of longevity because it relies on the multiversal fan service, but at the same time, it’s an enjoyable experience that brought back characters and had them fuel the new spider-man that they are telling the main stories with. Now Deadpool 3 may do something worth an appearance from Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine, but then at the same time, I can’t forget that we’ve already seen a version of this character be fittingly put to bed and also that all the people involved with that take, claimed that this was the big end for him. If we’re to look at the MCU’s current quality of projects, if this follows the same path, we’re likely going to get a third Deadpool movie that’s built on the type of fan service and cameo appearances that Disney has been continuously ushering in, solely driven by making lots of money off as much product as possible. And that just leaves me feeling quite weird towards it all. In my opinion and I think I speak for a growing number of people more recently, the MCU itself is in a position where most of the phase 4 projects they’ve released theatrically or on the small screen, have resulted in quite a mixed bag of quality. Yes after doing so many films, they continue to break the bank and make successful ones, but from a quality perspective, if we’re looking at a future of films that rely on fan service to satisfy the crowd that devoured No Way Home and unoriginal stories that take center stage in that approach, I can’t help but also feel quite exhausted by the types of announcements were getting. Announcements are announcements at the end of the day, so we need to wait and see whether this will transpire into something really good. But again, just from an outside perspective, it just seems more of the same when it comes to the MCU dropping a shocking character crossover reveal that makes the internet go wild. Does it need to happen after already getting 20 years from Hugh Jackman’s take on Wolverine and the perfect swan song for the character? Why not have a new take on Wolverine enter the MCU and establish a new story that we didn’t expect? Of course, they will hopefully do this in the years to come, but right now we can only give our perspectives on current announcements and relate that to what they have done for us lately. And lately, we’ve seen an influx of products, cameo reveals, and things that can degrade the long-lasting quality of a film by solely pushing the money-grabbing moves that they continue to make. At the end of the day, we’ll just have to see how they approach this before judging, but in the current climate of things we have got, I can’t help but feel weird about this announcement. While I don’t think that the MCU can reach the quality that a film like Logan strives to bring to the big screen, the fan in me is excited and I’ll give them a shot to see what they’ll do. Essentially, the fan in me is excited, but then I’m also hesitant because I think more than anything it’s just a move to shock fans and suck them in mainly through the product involved. My question is, what huge storytelling or character purpose could this serve other than to crossover these two characters in a single movie? That’s the worry for me and I just really hope they prove me wrong and find a way to make this great and make it feel more natural. While I enjoy Deadpool films and while this announcement excites me as a fan, I hope this film also has the quality. This is pretty much my problem with most of the fan service on display in the MCU’s phase four, and I think with the plethora of projects that they are committing to, it would be nice to see them take to time to make these projects last and produce some better filmmaking. I’ll still be there on day one to see what Deadpool 3 brings, but I’m not going to be blind to an announcement that feels very much aligned to the MCU’s recent approach, even if it does star the great Hugh Jackman as Wolverine and Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool. I just hope it feels natural and doesn’t solely act as a cash grab by Disney in comparison to what we’ve seen so often. But that was just my opinion on the news that Hugh Jackman is going to be returning as Wolverine in Deadpool 3. Again, the fan part of me is excited about this news and I would love to see Wolverine and Deadpool in a movie together. But the other part sees the re-introduction of an actor playing this role whose story and time as that character was perfectly put to bed, now being reintroduced for Deadpool 3. To be honest, I don’t know how to feel, but the excitement for it does of course have me there on day one to see what they will eventually produce. But what do you guys think of the news and are you excited for Hugh Jackman returning to the MCU or are you also someone who feels that it either lessens the impact of Logan being the original final step or a move simply made for more fan service?
