Hugh Jackman Regrets Retiring as Wolverine After Watching Deadpool

Hugh Jackman saw Deadpool and immediately began to second-guess his choice to leave the role of Wolverine. During San Diego Comic-Con and D23, Marvel Studios revealed a slew of new movies and television projects that will round out the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Phases 5 and 6.

Even with all the earlier announcements, maybe the most thrilling one was when Reynolds and Jackman jointly revealed to the world that, in Deadpool 3, Wade Wilson and Wolverine will rejoin once again after the less-than-stellar reception they had in X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

Before the release of the highly acclaimed Logan, in which Jackman reprised his role as the renowned X-Men mutant, Jackman announced his departure from the role. Even though Logan died after the second film, Hugh Jackman will reprise his role as Wolverine in the upcoming Marvel Studios-produced third installment of the Deadpool franchise.

It’s unclear how Ryan Reynolds’ Wade will cross over from one reality to the other, but the third Deadpool film will serve as his official entrance to the MCU. What incarnation of Wolverine will show up in Deadpool 3 is still unknown.

Jackman discussed his decision to step down from his role as Wolverine after almost two decades in a recent interview with Variety. Although Jackman was at peace with his choice at the time, he later said that after seeing Deadpool, he regretted it and compared it to 48 Hours. Jackman said that after just 20 minutes of seeing the film he began to question whether or not he had made the right decision to stop so soon:

“I saw Deadpool during a screening. When I got to the 20-minute mark, I said, ‘Ah, darn it!’ As for me, all I could see was the scene from 48 Hours with Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy. There has been tension for quite some time. The only difference is that I arrived later. “

Jackman is probably thinking of the buddy-cop aspects of the 1982 film 48 Hours starring Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy when he makes the comparison between Deadpool and that picture.

That being said, it might also provide a hint as to what Jackman’s Wolverine will be up to in Deadpool 3. A lot of people thought that when Hugh Jackman stopped playing Wolverine, that was it for good.

To meet the late 2024 release schedule for Deadpool 3, production will need to begin in the spring of 2023. Since Deadpool 3 is expected to begin filming shortly.
