Yes, we saw Patrick Stewart’s brief appearance as Professor X in the «Doctor Strange» sequel. But»Deadpool 3″ will pave the way for how the MCU will use, alter, or kill off previous versions of Marvel characters. That’s an unenviable task for any film to accomplish, but so far, fans seem more excited about the multiversal potential this gives «Deadpool 3» to play with on-screen — particularly with Hugh Jackman wearing Wolverine’s signature yellow suit.
Fans cheered when the first shot of Wade and Wolverine side-by-side hit the internet. Since taking up the claws in 2000 with «X-Men,» Hugh Jackman’s Logan had never worn the original Wolverine suit, but that’s now set to change thanks to «Deadpool 3» director Shawn Levy. Speaking to EW, Levy shared that getting Jackman to look like the angriest bumblebee with claws was always in the cards. «Like the rest of the world, I’ve waited two decades to see Wolverine in a whole movie with Deadpool, and I don’t know if this is our last shot at Wolverine on screen, so I was going to make goddamned sure we get the old yellow and blue just once, and that we get it right.»
Prepare yourself, folks. The MCU’s biggest release of 2024 looks to be rife with pains, maims, and offensive incidents only Deadpool could deliver. Bring it, bub.
«Deadpool & Wolverine» will tear into theaters on July 26, 2024.
