Hugh, who left the X-Men character behind in the critically acclaimed Logan in 2017, has agreed to star as his iconic character alongside good friend Ryan Reynolds.

The pair shared the news on Instagram with Ryan posting a video that saw him sitting on a couch and sharing that he had been "working very hard on the next Deadpool film for a good long while now".

Alongside clips of him drinking gin in character and sitting on the toilet, Ryan added: "I’ve had to really search my soul on this one. His first appearance in the MCU obviously needs to feel special.

"We need to stay true to the character, find new depth, motivation, 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."

He then pauses to admit he has nothing and is terrified before Hugh walks behind him and Ryan calls out: "Hey, Hugh, you want to play Wolverine one more time?"

"Yeah, for sure,” Hugh then replies, casually, as he walks up the stairs.


Ryan revealed they had 'one idea'

Deadpool was acquired by Disney when it purchased 20th Century Fox in 2019.

The first film made $782 million in 2016, and in 2018 the sequel earned $785 million, setting a then-new record as the highest grissing R-rated film.

Deadpool 3 has also been given a 6 September 2024 release.
