Spoiler warning: This article may contain spoilers for a Deadpool 3 staple.
Deadpool 3 won’t reveal the events of 2017’s Logan thanks to Marvel’s flexibility on timelines, Hugh Jackman confirmed in a new interview, hinting at the possibility that time travel could play a major role in the new film.
“It’s all because of this device that they have in the Marvel universe to move through timelines,” Jackman told SiriusXM. “Now we can go back because he knew. So, I don’t have to screw up the Logan timeline, which was important to me. And I think it’s probably for the fans, too.”
Hugh Jackman revealed that “DEADPOOL 3” will use a Time Travel device throughout the film. 👀

Jackman is poised to return as Wolverine alongside Ryan Reynolds with his mouth in Deadpool 3, which is set to hit theaters in November 2024. The move to bring back Jackman came as a surprise to most fans due to the events of Logan. This film, which was directed by James Mangold, saw Jackman’s Wolverine come to a gruesome end, impaled on a tree and unable to recover due to adamantium poisoning. Saying goodbye to the famous actor was as perfect as can be, but Jackman still wasn’t ready to hang his claws.
How to watch the Wolverine movies in (chronological) order
Back in September, Reynolds revealed in a social media post that Jackman would in fact be returning as the character, fulfilling a crossover the two actors have been considering for some time now (and no, X-Men Origins: Wolverine doesn’t do that number). Reynolds too well explained That whatever happens in Deadpool 3 will not negate the events of Logan.
He explained, “Logan is set in 2029, and that’s a whole separate thing. Logan died in ‘Logan’. Don’t touch that.”
Not much is known about Deadpool 3 aside from Jackman’s appearance, but the new movie will definitely mark a turnaround for the MCU. It looks like the movie will likely feature a version of Wolverine that fans haven’t met before; Whether that means Wolverine from another world or Wolverine before his death in 2029 remains to be seen. Either way, it’s possible that some out-of-the-ordinary time-travel off-kilter might ensue.
Deadpool 3 is scheduled to begin production in May 2023.
