Hugh Jackman’s announcement that he would play Wolverine again in Deadpool 3 seemed to be a dig by Logan director James Mangold.
When the 2017 version of Mangold’s Logan debuted, it was advertised as Jackman’s last outing as an X-Men member.
On the other hand, it was confirmed on Tuesday (27 September) that the Australian actor would return to the role in the third Deadpool movie, which is scheduled to come out in 2024, opposite Ryan Reynolds.
When the news first broke, Mangold merely uploaded a Logan gif that depicted the character’s demise without making any mention of the event.
The director received a lot of criticism for his “salty” remark from X-Men fans who were thrilled to hear that Jackman was coming back; as a result, the director was forced to clarify that he had no malice intended for either Jackman or Reynolds.
Most replies emphasized that “everything is conceivable” given that the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) has introduced the Multiverse, a collection of different planets with characters, both dead and alive.
While others jokingly referred to Wolverine being impaled in Logan as having “only a flesh wound,” one remark stated, “It seems you are not taking this news well.”
I’m really sorry. The Wolverine (2013) was written by Mangold, who also directed the film. Let’s all relax. No, really! I’m ok.
LOGAN will constantly be present, he continued. I cannot wait to see what crazy my great pals @VancityReynolds and @RealHughJackman conjure up, whether it involves a multiverse, a prologue, a time warp, a wormhole, canon or non-canon, or even without a reason.
Harrison Ford and Phoebe Waller-Bridge star in Mangold’s upcoming film, the fifth installment of the Indiana Jones series.
