In a thrilling revelation for Marvel fans, Hugh Jackman is set to don the classic yellow suit of Wolverine in the much-anticipated “Deadpool 3”. The news has sparked a wave of excitement across social media platforms, as fans eagerly await the return of Jackman’s iconic character in his classic comic book attire.
The first look at Jackman in the yellow and blue suit, reminiscent of Wolverine’s iconic look from the comics and the 1990s X-Men animated series, was shared on Instagram by both Jackman and his co-star, Ryan Reynolds. The image shows the two characters walking side-by-side in a desert, fully clad in their respective costumes. The caption, “Don’t blink,” added to the anticipation among fans, marking a moment many have been waiting for since Jackman’s debut as Wolverine in 2000’s X-Men.
A fan art also provides a glimpse of what Jackman could look like with Wolverine’s mask in Deadpool 3. The artist played with the fun tone of the Deadpool movies by depicting Jackman’s Wolverine, in full yellow costume and mask, carrying Reynolds’ Deadpool in his arms, walking away from an explosion.
Despite Jackman’s long-standing portrayal of Wolverine in several X-Men films, the character’s classic costume had never made it to the screen. This is set to change in Deadpool 3, marking the first time Jackman will be seen in the mutant’s iconic comic book costume. The inclusion of the classic yellow suit in Deadpool 3 is a significant nod to the fans and the character’s comic book origins.
The upcoming film will also feature returning cast members Rob Delaney, Karan Soni, Leslie Uggams, Morena Baccarin, and Stefan Kapicic, alongside newcomers Emma Corrin and Matthew Macfadyen. Jennifer Garner is also confirmed to be reprising her role as Elektra.
“Deadpool 3” is slated for release on May 3, 2024. The film promises a thrilling and nostalgic experience as beloved characters return to the screen donning their iconic costumes. As the release date approaches, fans can expect more sneak peeks and updates from the stars and the studio.
