A lip reader reveals what Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman said in their already infamous ‘explanation’ video about Deadpool 3.

Deadpool 3 with Hugh Jackman’s return as Wolverine approaches. Following the shocking announcement, Ryan Reynolds posted a second video of himself and Jackman revealing specific details about the project before being drowned out by music. Fortunately, a lip reader and content creator named Jomboy may have transcribed the two actors’ discussion.
Even Jomboy himself admitted that everything that has been said may not be quite correct. Basically, Reynolds and Jackman teased a lot of explosions, swords and stabs in Deadpool 3. That’s about what you’d expect from a Deadpool project.
One exciting thing Jackman may have said was something along the lines of “we’re in our prime.” Perhaps this suggests that Jackman’s Wolverine appears in his normal, healthy state rather than how he appeared in 2017 Logan. Reynolds also teased Deadpool 3 as a “totally separate thing”, so there is evidence for the case.
Besides the acknowledgment to MCU boss Kevin Feige, the video didn’t really reveal specific details about Deadpool 3. Rumors of Jackman’s return as Wolverine started last year after he shared a photo of himself on social media responding to a news story. Jackman and Reynolds have a close friendship that dates back to their time working together on X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
There is still a lot to unpack Deadpool 3. We reported through our most trusted and proven sources that veteran X-Men actor Patrick Stewart would be reprising his role as Professor Charles Xavier in the upcoming third installment. Other than Reynolds and Jackman, however, no other casting has been confirmed at the time of writing.
There are also rumors that Brad Pitt would appear in the project. It is not known whether the actor would appear in a lead role or a cameo. Anyway, adding an actor of Brad Pitt’s caliber only heightens the excitement for Deadpool 3.
For years, fans have been waiting for the news of Deadpool 3 since Disney bought Twentieth Century Fox. Some speculated whether an announcement of the third episode would have been made at Disney’s D23 Expo. However, Kevin Feige made no such announcement, leaving many to wonder if the project had been out for years.
Then on September 27, Reynolds announced that: Deadpool 3 would happen and that Jackman would return as Wolverine. Jackman last starred in the iconic X-Men character Logan, where he played an older and gray version of himself. The actor stated that in the past, Logan was his last outing as fans’ favorite cartoon character.
Now that Jackman is finally entering the MCU, speculation is about how many projects he will be involved in. While Deadpool 3 is on everyone’s mind, there are the next two Avengers movies, Avengers: The Kang Dynasty and Avengers: Secret Wars. It’s possible that Jackman could appear in one of those movies.
Deadpool 3 is scheduled to hit theaters on September 6, 2024. We reported through our sources that Marvel is already working Deadpool 4 and that Reynolds is on board for the project. Our sources also told us that Deadpool 4 would happen after Avengers: Secret Wars.
