Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds are all set to share screen space in the upcoming Marvel movie Deadpool 3. The film will be releasing in theatres only in November 2024. However, that has not stopped Jackman aka Wolverine to tease fans with fun details about the plot. Speaking of which, in a recent episode of the Empire Film Podcast, Hugh Jackman revealed that Wolverine and Deadpool would not be the best of friends in the film. In fact, he said that the former will be punching Deadpool ‘a lot’.

Spilling some beans about his character Logan’s equation with Reynolds’ Deadpool, Jackman said that they are a ‘zero’ when it comes to getting along with each other. Furthermore, he added that they are “complete opposites”, and that they “hate each other”. He further added, “I'm just talking from my perspective. [Logan is] frustrated by him, wants to be a million miles away from him, or wants to punch him in the head. Unfortunately, he can't be a million miles away from him in this movie, so I'm probably going to punch him in the head a lot."  

Interestingly, the actors also share a similar bond in real life too. Reynolds and Jackman are often seen pulling each other’s legs, while they pretend to dislike each other on social media platforms.

Talking about Wolverine’s appearance in Deadpool 3, Hugh Jackman hinted in an interview on the Jess Cagle Talk Show that because of the use of “this device they have in the Marvel world of moving around timelines,” it would not disturb the timeline of events leading up to Logan. He clarified that events in the new Deadpool movie take place prior to the events in his 2017 film Logan.

Fans are quite excited to watch both beloved characters together in the upcoming sequel. While we do have to wait several months before we can catch it on the big screens, we do have a few exciting details about the movie. Read on to know more!
