Deadpool 3 director Shawn Levy recently unraveled a spectacular detail about the highly anticipated film - the inclusion of Wolverine's classic suit. Most interestingly, the suit will be worn by Wolverine's original actor, Hugh Jackman, who was beyond thrilled to embrace his character's iconic look.
Levy narrated his conversation with Jackman in an interview, revealing the actor's enthusiastic response to wearing the traditional Wolverine costume. The costume, famous for its bright yellow and blue ensemble, has never made an on-screen appearance. Jackman's exuberant sentiment towards incorporating this significant part of the Wolverine's identity into the Marvel Cinematic Universe matches fans' excitement across the globe.
Before the unsettling pause in production due to the SAG-AFTRA strike, Levy managed to unveil a singular official image from Deadpool 3. The image featured Marvel's comic sensation Deadpool, portrayed by Ryan Reynolds, standing next to Hugh Jackman's Wolverine. This visual teaser fueled the fans' growing anticipation and left them clamoring for more.
Furthermore, sharing the colorful development with Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios, Levy recounts that Feige was equally excited about going ahead with the classic Wolverine attire. Feige's immediate enthusiasm about the inclusion of the historic costume strengthens the excitement around its live-screen debut.
Despite the ecstatic reaction of Jackman, Feige, and millions of Marvel fans worldwide, it might be a while until Wolverine sports the iconic suit in theaters. A recent report from Deadline implies that Deadpool 3's release date, initially scheduled for May 3, 2024, might be postponed due to the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike.
The production gears started turning earlier this year, and Levy has already completed editing half the film. Still, post-strike production remains and, given the circumstances, it appears unlikely the film will hit the screens in six months' timeline.
As the Marvel fanbase eagerly looks forward to the release of Deadpool 3, these details ignite their enthusiasm and pique the curiosity around how the blue and yellow Wolverine suit will shake up the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In the meantime, fans can get a glimpse of what's to come in the MCU’s Phase 5 and Deadpool 3 with various guides on upcoming Marvel movies.
