The Marvel Cinematic Universe is becoming even more powerful than before.

But don’t worry superhero fans! Deadpool 3 is set to make its MCU debut in 2024. So Ryan Reynolds and his titular role are in good hands. In addition to working with Marvel Studios, Reynolds will reunite with the film’s director, Shawn Levy. Oh, and who else is joining in the fun? Hugh Jackman, naturally.
Here’s everything we know about Deadpool 3 so far, from Wolverine’s involvement to the film’s release date.
What will the plot of Deadpool 3 be?

While the significance of Jackman’s role in the third installment is unknown, sources told PEOPLE that it will be more than a cameo.
Wolverine’s role in the film was first teased by Jackman and Reynolds in a cheeky Instagram Reel from September 2022, in which Jackman attempted to reveal the plot, only to be drowned out when Wham”Wake !’s Me Up Before You Go-Go” suddenly began playing in the teaser.
But, in true MCU fashion, there will be plenty of action! In an interview with PEOPLE in October 2022, Jackman stated, “I’ll probably have more fun in this movie than any other I’ve ever done.”
“Being on set with [Ryan] every day, and seeing those two on film in every city together… I think it’s safe to say they’ll be punching each other the entire time “PEOPLE obtained exclusive information from Jackman.
Which cast is returning for Deadpool 3?

Although the two have a love-hate relationship on screen, their bond in real life is what has fueled speculation about her return.
When Uggams congratulated her Deadpool co-star on The Adam Project becoming the most-watched show on Netflix in March 2022, Reynolds responded with a clever retort.
He wrote on Twitter: “Thank you very much, Leslie. I’ll see you soon, “followed by three sword emojis and a subtle nod to Deadpool’s swords, Bea and Arthur.

Although Reynolds has confirmed that Taylor Swift will not be joining the cast of Deadpool 3. He has also confirmed that Hugh Jackman will reprise his role as Wolverine, a character with whom he has become synonymous since 2000’s X-Men.
This will be Jackman’s tenth appearance as the clawed character, following James Mangold’s 2017 gritty R-rated Logan. Despite his long history as Wolverine, Reynolds is determined to make the character’s Deadpool debut feel fresh.
