“I can tell you I’m going to have the time of my life,” Jackman said. “I can tell you I’ve started back at the gym, and I’m eating a lot, and I feel bad for the cast of The Music Man with the amount of protein shakes I’m having.”

“It’s a lot of fun,” he added. “It’s been five years and I really never thought I’d come back. And I’m really, really excited about it.”

Though at the time he didn’t know much about what the movie would look like, when asked if Wolverine would be angrier or kinder he replied: “There’s no choice. He’s definitely the angrier, acerbic, grumpy, and he’s gonna take a lot of free shots at Ryan Reynolds, let me tell you. Physically, that is.”

Currently, his light diet is a part of the ‘cutting’ process in his training schedule, after spending time bulking his muscle and fat up, he’s now focused on fat loss. 

“I’m not doing any other work,” Hugh said to Chris Wallace, according to Complex. ‘I’m going to be with my family and train. That’s going to be my job for six months.” 

In a video posted on Ryan Reynolds X’s (formerly known as Twitter) account in 2022, the pair revealed hints of what Deadpool 3 would look like.

“Hey everyone, we’re extremely sad to have missed D23, but we’ve been working very hard on the next Deadpool film for a good long while now,” Reynolds said.

“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. 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.”
