Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman are having more fun after the announcement that Wolverine will appear in Deadpool 3, this time teasing a very violent fight, and making clear 2017’s Logan is a “totally separate thing”.
Appearing in a video on Ryan Reynolds’ Twitter feed (below), the pair promise “quick explainer video”. It does indeed start by answering how Wolverine can appear after his death in Logan: “Logan takes place in 2029,” says Reynolds “Totally separate thing. Logan died in Logan, not touching that.”
However, after saying, “What actually happens in our film is these two f**king guys…”, the audio fades out, ‘Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go’ begins playing, and we see the actors effectively mime plot points, including what seems to be a fight that sees Deadpool and Wolverine stabbing each other repeatedly.
Expect lip reading experts to have a field day with this one (but probably don’t take too seriously what they’re saying under the music).
Quick explainer video that tackles…
1) Timeline questions
2) Logan canon
3) MCU FAQ
4) Whether we can do this all day or not pic.twitter.com/50lBsfYS5p

The video ends with Jackman and Reynolds thanking the MCU, and Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige, before showing us a set of pictures of the two together across the years, ending with a picture of them alongside director Shaun Levy.
Given that we knew Deadpool 3 will be R-rated, it’s no huge surprise that we may be getting a violent fight between the two characters, but it’s nice to know some of their classic comic book moments might be recreated.
Even with the Logan element cleared up, we still have several burning questions about Deadpool and Wolverine entering the MCU in the same movie, from whether this means the X-Men movie universe will be merged into the multiverse, where in the Phases this falls, and more. We’ll find out when Deadpool 3 arrives in 2024.
