Hugh Jackman Could Be Playing Multiple Wolverines in Deadpool 3
Hugh Jackman delighted fans of the X-Men movies last year when he revealed that he would be reprising the role of the mutant Logan, better known as Wolverine, once again in the upcoming Deadpool 3 opposite Ryan Reynolds. This will mark both Deadpool and Wolverine's first official appearance in the canonical Marvel Cinematic Universe, after originally starring in a series of Fox-owned titles.
After revealing that Wolverine will be "angrier" than ever in Deadpool 3, Jackman has now also dropped a hint as to how his character will figure into the new movie, as well as the wider MCU.
During a recent interview with Le Parisien, Jackman mentioned that he is currently preparing for a "dual role" in the film, suggesting that there will be multiple versions of Wolverine on screen. Given that Loki, Spider-Man: No Way Home, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Ant-Man & The Wasp: Quantumaniahave all paved the way for multiple different variants of the same person to appear in the MCU, it stands to reason that some reality-hopping shenanigans will be used to bring the X-Men into the main continuity.
It is unclear whether Jackman will play Wolverine in any MCU properties extending beyond Deadpool 3, or whether the events of that movie might lead to circumstances in which he can pass the metal claws on to another actor who can then make the character their own. Speculation surrounding who the MCU's version of Wolverine might be has been rife ever since Marvel Studios gained rights to the X-Men, with Taron Egerton, Zac Efron, and Daniel Radcliffe's names all coming up again and again.
