Ryan Reynolds, Hugh Jackman’s Deadpool 3 production halted amid SAG AFTRA strike.
The production of Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman’s much-awaited film Deadpool 3 has been halted amid the ongoing SAG AFTRA strike. The Marvel picture is the biggest project to date to be halted by the strike. The news came just a few days after Ryan and Hugh dropped the first look from the film as Deadpool and Wolverine on their Instagram stories. In the picture, Ryan could be seen walking alongside a super-suited Wolverine in black and yellow. Shawn Levy is directing and producing the Marvel threequel.
Fans have been waiting to hear more about Deadpool 3, which will not only be the latest entry in the Ryan Reynolds-starring superhero series but also will see the Merc with the Mouth make his debut in the MCU. When no news of the film was shared during Disney’s D23 event, it seemed that there would still be a long wait before anything new came from the project, yet only two weeks following the event, film star Reynolds took to his official Twitter page to give more than anyone would have possibly expected: A confirmation of the film’s release date for September 6, 2024, and the announcement that Hugh Jackman will be returning to his beloved role as Wolverine!
The Twitter post in question featured a video from Reynolds discussing the fact that Deadpool 3 missed D23, with the post also including a caption reading, “Hard keeping my mouth sewn shut about this one,” referencing his less than favorable debut as the titular character in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The video showed a montage of Reynolds as he talks about the introspection and process that was going into the creation of the film, as it was important that the character’s debut in the MCU was special. After so much thought and consideration, Reynolds confirms that… he has nothing. Nothing but one idea. As Reynolds sits on his couch, Jackman is seen in the background heading up the stairs. “Hey, Hugh, want to play Wolverine one more time?” The seemingly disinterested Jackman simply responds, “Yeah, sure, Ryan.” The video ends with a rendition of Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” with the word “You” replaced with “Hugh” as the Deadpool logo appears, before it is cut through by three Adamantium claws, followed by the reveal of the September release date.
Jackman is synonymous with the role of Wolverine, having debuted as the character in the original live-action X-Men film from 2000 and has reprised the role in several films. Jackman retired from the character after 2017’s acclaimed film by James Mangold, though it seems that like the Westerns that the Oscar-nominated film was inspired by, the star is set to get up into the saddle one more time. Jackman’s appearance in Deadpool 3 will see him making his debut in the MCU along with the titular Wade Wilson, though it is currently unknown the size that his role in the upcoming film will be.
Jackman joins a cast that includes the previously mentioned Reynolds as well as Leslie Uggams, as the only other confirmed casting for the upcoming project. Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are writing the script for Deadpool 3 with Shawn Levy, who previously collaborated with Reynolds on Free Guy and Netflix’s recent The Adam Project, serving as the film’s director.
Deadpool 3 is set to premiere on September 6, 2024. You can check out the Twitter post revealing the release date, logo, and announcement of Jackman’s return as Wolverine down below.
Hugh Jackman recently responded to a question regarding The Greatest Showman 2 with a sarcastic joke about his penchant for multiple sequels.
Hugh Jackman recently responded to a question regarding a sequel to The Greatest Showman 2 with a joke about sequels. The Wolverine star is no stranger to musicals on both stage and screen. He has starred in such Broadway productions as Carousel, The Boy from Oz, and The Music Man, as well as musical feature films like Happy Feet and Les Misérables. The Greatest Showman is inspired by the life of P.T. Barnum (Jackman), a circus magnate who created the world-famous Barnum & Bailey Circus.
Although the film was met with mixed reviews by critics, The Greatest Showman was well-received by audiences with the movie currently sitting at an 86% audience rating on the review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes. The film’s soundtrack proved to be as popular as the film with the album topping the charts in multiple countries and being 2018’s best-selling album in both the United States and the U.K. Due to its popularity, a sequel was in development in 2019 but no further updates of its production have been revealed. The Greatest Showman co-star Michelle Williams, who portrayed Barnum’s wife Charity, recently expressed her desire to be cast in a follow-up but did not confirm if the film was currently in the works.
People caught up with Jackman and discussed the possibility of The Greatest Showman 2. When asked if the actor would reprise his role for another musical, Jackman humorously quipped that he is well-known for not participating in any sequels. Jackman then went on to add that he would be open to the idea if they came up with a good idea for The Greatest Showman 2. Read what the star said below.
“Listen, if you know anything about my filmography, you’d know I’m totally against sequels in every shape or form. No more than nine films! I’m always open, if they come up with a good idea. Yeah, I’m open!”
Hugh Jackman‘s production of The Music Man just started performances on Broadway this week and it has unfortunately already been affected by COVID-19.
After a long delay in the start of production, Hugh and the cast were able to perform four times before they had to cancel some performances. At the most recent show, leading lady Sutton Foster was out sick after testing positive for COVID-19 and her understudy Kathy Voytko saved the day by going on with just a few hours of rehearsal time.
The curtain call speech with Hugh giving praise for Kathy has since gone viral! Now, performances of The Music Man on Christmas weekend are canceled.
“The evening performance on Saturday, December 25 and matinee performance on Sunday, December 26 of Broadway’s The Music Man have been cancelled due to breakthrough COVID-19 cases. All tickets for the cancelled shows will be refunded at the point of purchase,” the producers said in a statement. “Our company would have loved nothing more than to celebrate the holiday with the audience and their families, but the priority is the health and wellness of the cast, crew, and audience. We are so grateful to our entire cast and crew — most especially our heroic understudies and swings — for ensuring our speedy return to the Winter Garden Theatre.”
