Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman wanted to have fun again after the announcement confirming the appearance of Wolverine in Deadpool 3, this time joking with a very violent fight, and making it clear that the 2017 Logan is a “completely separate thing”.
Appearing in a new video on Ryan Reynolds’ Twitter (below), the pair promise a “quick explainer video.” Indeed, he begins by responding to how Wolverine can appear after his death in Logan: “Logan takes place in 2029“, dice Reynolds “Totally separate thing. Logan died in Logan, don’t touch that“.
However, after saying: “What actually happens in our movie is that these two fucking guys…“, the audio fades out, ‘Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go’ starts playing, and we see the actors effectively miming plot points, including what appears to be a fight in which Deadpool and Wolverine stab each other repeatedly.
Lip sync experts will have a blast with this (but probably won’t take what they say under the music too seriously).
Quick explainer video that tackles…
1) Timeline questions
2) Logan canon
3) MCU FAQ
4) Whether we can do this all day or not pic.twitter.com/50lBsfYS5p

The video ends with Jackman and Reynolds thanking the MCU, and Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feigebefore showing us a set of photos of the two of them together over the years, ending with a picture of them alongside director Shaun Levy.
Since we knew that Deadpool 3 will be coming of age, it is not a big surprise that we can have a violent fight between the two charactersbut it’s nice to know that some of his classic moments from the comics could be recreated.
Even with the Logan element cleared up, we still have several burning questions about Deadpool and Wolverine entering the MCU in the same movie, from whether this means the X-Men Cinematic Universe will merge into the multiverse, where of the Phases drops this, and more. We’ll find out when Deadpool 3 arrives in 2024.
