Hugh Jackman in his iconic Wolverine costume was first seen by fans in Marvel Studios’ Deadpool 3. Audiences got their first glance at Jackman in the iconic yellow and blue Wolverine outfit from the ’90s X-Men animated series in a tweet from the official 9to5marvel account on July 10. In the photo, Reynolds’ titular “Merc with a Mouth,” who is also donning new clothing for the blockbuster superhero franchise’s newest installment, is seen striding beside Jackman. Reynolds first posted a picture of Deadpool and Wolverine on his Instagram account with the message “Don’t blink.”
For fans of the character, Jackman’s return to the role of Wolverine has been a huge lure. He initially played the character in 2000’s X-Men and reprised it for more than a half dozen additional films. As part of the marketing for Deadpool 3, the actor has been hinting at his return to the part. Reynolds has already commented that Jackman’s Wolverine may be what viewers may be anticipating, but this return to form is a very different version of the character. Reynolds said, “What we offered him was enough of a departure from the persona he knows and the role he’s left behind. “That it gives him something completely new to play with and something he’s really excited to do.”
A big portion of the ensemble cast, which includes other performers who are returning to the series, is made up of Reynolds and Jackman. Along with two reluctant mutant heroes in the form of Brianna Hildebrand’s Negasonic Teenage Warhead and Shioli Kutsuna’s Yukio, these actors include Karan Soni as taxi driver turned vigilante Dopinder, Leslie Uggams as Deadpool’s close friend Blind Al, Stefan Kapicic as X-Men icon Colossus, Rob Delaney as the otherwise unremarkable Peter, and Stefan Kapicic as Colossus. Additionally, Morena Baccarin will reprise her role as Vanessa, who served as Deadpool’s main love interest in the first two films, in the movie.
In addition to adding a new chapter to the beloved franchise, Deadpool 3 also formally inducts the ensemble of characters into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The movie marks both the first formal appearance of the X-Men in the MCU and the first R-rated movie in the larger series. Soni recently shared her thoughts on the movie’s adult rating and the lengths it goes to. “It feels hard R…” That kind of crap is everywhere, he remarked. It thus doesn’t feel different. Soni added that although though he hadn’t yet seen a screenplay, the role his character would play in the future movie was more than deserving of the “hard R” classification.Follow us to get free & fast MCU Movies/Shows Leaks & News
