Deadpool 3 Wolverine Suit

On Monday, July 10, 2023, Jackman and his Deadpool 3 co-star Ryan Reynolds both took to Instagram to share a photo from the set of the upcoming film. This picture isn’t your regular on-set photo as it shows Jackman wearing a yellow and blue Wolverine suit similar to the clawed mutant’s look in the comics and in the X-Men animated series that originally ran on the Fox Kids Network during the ‘90s.

Jackman has appeared in eight X-Men movies since 2000, but the actor never actually wore a suit that resembles the one worn by the animated version of the character.

As pointed out by Entertainment Weekly, there was a joke about Wolverine’s classic yellow costume in the 2000 film X-Men, in which the actors all wore black jumpsuits. (“You actually go outside in these things?” “What would you prefer? Yellow spandex?”).

As fans can remember, there was also a deleted scene from the 2013 film The Wolverine, in which Jackman as Logan opens a case to reveal his alter-ego’s suit within. That tease, however, never made it to the final cut of any of the finished X-Men movies.

The recently released image from the set of Deadpool 3, which came direct from Jackman’s and Reynold’s Instagram Stories, also shows Reynolds wearing a slightly altered Deadpool costume from the previous Deadpool. Both of the actors’ social media posts read, “Don’t Blink.”

Deadpool 3 plot

The plot of Deadpool 3 is still under wraps, but there are a few things we know. The movie will be set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), and it will be the first R-rated movie in the MCU. Ryan Reynolds will be back as Wade Wilson, a.k.a., Deadpool, with Hugh Jackman making his MCU debut as Wolverine.

There have been a few different rumors about the plot of Deadpool 3. One rumor is that the movie will be a road trip movie with Deadpool and Wolverine. Another rumor is that the movie will involve Deadpool breaking the fourth wall and addressing the fact that he is now in the MCU.

There’s also speculation that the movie will involve Deadpool trying to find a way to save Wolverine from dying in the 2017 movie Logan. Whatever the plot of Deadpool 3 may be, it is sure to be a wild and hilarious ride, as Reynolds previously said that the movie will be “the most R-rated movie ever made,” and that it will be “a love letter to the fans.”
