Many Marvel fans are under the impression that Hugh Jackman will reprise his role as Wolverine in Deadpool 3. This is based on a cryptic picture the actor shared on his social media accounts.
Jackman, who played Logan/Wolverine for the first time in the 2000 film X-Men, recently posted a photo of himself online looking at his phone with a bewildered expression.
In a technical sense, Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds have appeared in the film as Wolverine and Deadpool, respectively. Even though most people, including Ryan Reynolds, would rather forget it, the two featured in X-Men Origins: Wolverine in 2009. The leading actor in The Music Man on Broadway now has everyone talking. Before we dive too far into conjecture, have a look for yourself:

Despite these speculations, there has been no official confirmation from Marvel Studios. Neither has there been word from Jackman or anybody else involved with Deadpool 3 that he will appear in the film despite widespread speculation.
It’s possible that Hugh Jackman’s new “feud” is about to begin. No one saves the guy himself who knows the truth, and he certainly won’t reveal it until he’s ready. For Jackman, teasing his fans and the paparazzi who cover him is all in a day’s work. You can count on us to be riveted to the television until we learn what happens next.
But how probable is it that the original Wolverine will make a cameo in the Merc with a Mouth’s next film? It has been argued that hiring filmmaker Shawn Levy to helm Deadpool 3 significantly increased their chances. The film’s formal release date, or even a rough production timetable, has yet to be announced. Consequently, progress on this front may take some time.
Nonetheless, there’s still time to talk Hugh Jackman into showing his claws for the sake of humor. It also provides enough opportunity for moviegoers to plan ahead for the many releases (both Marvel and elsewhere) scheduled for the following year.
No one can tell fans to stop interrogating about something they know so little about. Jackman’s portrait likely has nothing to do with Deadpool 3. However, the actor can’t be arrested for creating a buzz.
