I’ve had to really search my soul on this one. His first appearance in the MCU obviously needs to feel special. We need to stay true to the character, find new depth, motivation, meaning. Every Deadpool needs to stand out and stand apart.”
Reynolds continuous, “It’s been an incredible challenge that has forced me to reach down deep inside. And I…I have nothing. Yeah, just completely empty up here. And terrifying. But we did have one idea.”
Lastly, when Hugh Jackman is seen heading to upstairs in the background, Ryan asks him, “Hey, Hugh, you want to play Wolverine one more time?”

Since then this curiosity had arisen in the minds of fans as to which actor would play Wolverine in the future. Last July, Taron Egerton claimed that he was in talks with Marvel Studio to play Wolverine in MCU.
But now that Hugh Jackman has returned as Wolverine and also things have come under Marvel. In such a situation, the chances of Hugh Jackman appearing as Wolverine in Marvel’s upcoming big event film Avengers: Secret Wars increase. Because, it’s also worth noting that Marvel teased Wolverine for first time in the MCU in the Disney+ show She-Hulk. Also if Marvel can still bring Wolverine in Avengers: Secret Wars without messing with its current timeline. Obviously Logan was set in 2029 and the Secret Wars timeline will be set in 2025.
