While it might seem crazy to even consider a return of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine given how well the character was sent off in Logan back in 2017, it appears that Disney is very much considering his return, if rumors are true at least…
According to recent rumors that have surfaced, Disney is reportedly willing to throw a lot of money at Hugh Jackman for him to return one last time as Wolverine in the next Deadpool movie. The rumor suggests that the next Deadpool movie would put the Wolverine against Deadpool in an R-rated buddy picture-style movie.
There are a lot of reasons why this Deadpool vs. Wolverine movie would make sense in the MCU.
The first and biggest reason is that Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman have had a hilarious and playful feud for years both on and offscreen. It’s lead to events such as Deadpool wearing a Hugh Jackman mask in the first movie and Hugh Jackman creating this hilarious ad for Ryan’s gin company:
Seeing the two on screen together as their Marvel characters is a match made in heaven and Disney stands to gain a huge box office take if they can pull it off.
The other big reason is getting fans to trust Disney with the Fox Marvel characters, primarily the mutants. The rumor suggests that Deadpool will travel back in time to when Wolverine was still alive and it is in the past where this adventure would take place.
Either way, we don’t know anyone who wouldn’t want to go and see this movie and it would be the perfect way to make sure that the next Deadpool movie remains R-Rated!
After all this time, it would be a real shame for this movie not to happen though I think a lot of this is wishful thinking from fans at this point.
