Ryan Reynolds’ recent video announcement in which he revealed the release date for the upcoming Deadpool 3 and the surprising return of Hugh Jackman as Logan/Wolverine has spread like fire all around social media. It was certainly a big day for Marvel fans, but after the dust settled a bit, there were a lot of questions. And the biggest question is: How is Wolverine alive after the events of Logan?
Well, the explanation is actually very simple, and it was actually in front of our noses. In a new video, Ryan Reynolds reminded us that Logan takes place in 2029, and he and Jackman promised that the return of Jackman in Deadpool 3 will not interfere with the death of his character in the 2017 movie.

When you put it like that, it’s a pretty solid explanation. However, we need to remember that Reynolds’ Deadpool was aware of Logan’s death in 2018’s Deadpool 2. But, this is Deadpool, he’s always about breaking the fourth wall so we don’t need to cross every T or dot every I. Jackman’s return as Wolverine has certainly hyped the fans up, and we cannot wait for September 2024 when the movie finally hits theaters. Knowing Reynolds and Jackman, it will definitely be a great buddy movie. And don’t forget, rated R has been confirmed!
Shawn Levy, who worked with Reynolds on Free Guy and The Adam Project, has been confirmed to helm the upcoming Deadpool movie after Tim Miller and David Leitch directed the first two Deadpool movies. Logan director James Mangold has also expressed his excitement for Deadpool 3 on Twitter.
Deadpool 3, starring Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman, is set to be released on September 6, 2024.
