Will ‘Deadpool 2’ Introduce the New Wolverine?

Will ‘Deadpool 2’ Introduce the New Wolverine?

They don't call Deadpool the "Merc With the Mouth" for nothing, and there isn't anything that's off-limits. The preview for the first trailer even featured Deadpool making fun of the actual studio that was distributing his movie, 20th Century Fox, since they sewed his mouth shut in the 2009 movie X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Earlier this week, Ryan Reynolds took a playful jab at Wolverine himself, Hugh Jackman, who responded to the video during the Sundance Film Festival, while hinting that the next actor who takes over as Wolverine might just appear in Deadpool 2.

The actor then pointed to his Eddie the Eagle co-star Taron Egerton, hinting that he might be right to take over as Logan. However, Taron Egerton responded that he doesn't have the "facial hair" to pull off the Wolverine role. Hugh Jackman has said on numerous occasions that the upcoming Wolverine 3 will be his last time portraying the iconic character, but he has also hinted several times that the studio will simply cast another actor, at some point.

‘Wolverine 3’ Script Is Finished Says Hugh Jackman

‘Wolverine 3’ Script Is Finished Says Hugh Jackman

What isn't known quite yet is if Hugh Jackman's beloved character will have a cameo appearance in this summer's X-Men: Apocalypse. The actor took part in a cryptic exchange with director Bryan Singer at San Diego Comic Con last summer, where it was mentioned that the actor has been featured in every X-Men movie to date. Still, his presence as Wolverine still hasn't been confirmed for X-Men: Apocalypse, so we'll have to wait and see.

James Mangold (The Wolverine) is directing Wolverine 3 from a script by Michael Green, who is also writing the Untitled Blade Runner Project and 20th Century Fox's Alien: Covenant. Hopefully we'll get more updates on Wolverine 3 very soon as the filmmakers get this script ready for production. Are you looking forward to Hugh Jackman's swan song as Wolverine?

International ‘Eddie the Eagle’ Trailer Starring Hugh Jackman

Yesterday, we got our first official look at the upcoming biopic Eddie the Eagle with six new photos featuring stars Hugh Jackman and Taron Egerton. Thankfully, we didn't have to wait long for the first footage to arrive, with JoBlo Movie Trailers debuting a new international trailer. Eddie the Eagle is set to take flight in theaters April 1, 2016, going up against Open Road Films' Collide, Paramount's Rings and Pure Flix's God's Not Dead 2.

This biopic centers on the infamous tale of Eddie 'The Eagle' Edwards (Taron Egerton), who became the first British ski jumper in Olympic history at the 1988 games. Despite finishing in last place in both of his events, he became an international celebrity following the games despite his poor performance. His performance at the games also lead to what became known as the "Eddie the Eagle Rule," which was put in place by the International Olympic Committee after the Calgary games. The rule requires Olympic hopefuls to compete in international events and be placed in either the top 30 percent or the top 50 competitors.

‘Deadpool’ Video Has Ryan Reynolds Impersonating Hugh Jackman

While no one connected to either project has confirmed that Hugh Jackman will once again reprise his role as the indestructible mutant Logan in Deadpool, the actor himself has teased that it is more likely than him showing up in any of the other spinoffs or X-Men: Apocalypse. Adding some weight to this is the fact that Deadpool reshoots are happening right now. And it was Hugh Jackman who posted this video on his Twitter.

So, is Hugh Jackman in Vancouver? Or did Ryan Reynolds send the actor this video to post? We're not sure just yet. And we might not know until the film opens in time for Valentine's Day this February. What we do know is that Ryan Reynolds has returned to his hometown to shoot additional scenes for this Marvel adventure from 20th Century Fox. And we know some of those scenes involve a garbage truck and a sharp dressed man getting a head-butt from Wade Wilson himself. Will we see Hugh Jackman set photos later today? Perhaps.
