Hugh Jackman’s return as Wolverine in ‘Deadpool 3’ is welcome news for many MCU fans. However, ‘Deadpool 3’ might just be the beginning of the X-Man’s return as more sources have since suggested that Hugh Jackman will also play “a big role” in ‘Avengers: Secret Wars.’ Wolverine rejoining the MCU has excited Marvel fans, and many want to know how big Hugh Jackman’s role in ‘Avengers: Secret Wars’ will be.
The news of Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine getting a role in ‘Avengers: Secret Wars’ was broken on August 12, 2023, by industry insider Daniel Richtman. According to Richtman, Jackman met with Kevin Feige, the President of Marvel Studios, to discuss details of ‘a big role’ for Jackman’s Wolverine in Avengers 6. The details are scanty, but the news agrees with our related sources on the character’s MCU future.
Wolverine’s revival in ‘Deadpool 3’ is sufficient proof for Marvel fans that the character is indeed immortal. However, his immortality won’t be any good if he doesn’t get his ultimate revenge, and the MCU Multiverse saga is the perfect place for that. The news of Logan’s possible big role in ‘Avengers: Secret Wars’ could change the MCU forever, so let’s delve into how it could all come together.
Will Wolverine appear in ‘Avengers: Secret Wars’?
According to Daniel Richtman, Hugh Jackman discussed a ‘big role’ for Wolverine in ‘Avengers: Secret Wars’ before the SAG strike in 2023. The news comes on the back of confirmation of lots of other X-Men stars being introduced into the ‘Deadpool 3‘ cast.
There is no official confirmation of this news by Marvel, although Richtman has proved to be a credible source for Marvel news in the past. Marvel will likely remain tight-lipped on Jackman’s extended role in the MCU until after the release of ‘Deadpool 3’ in 2024. Still, images of Wolverine and Deadpool together in ‘Deadpool 3’ set pictures to prove Wolverine’s revival in the MCU is for a greater purpose.
The news of Jackman’s Wolverine having a role in ‘Secret Wars’ comes while the production of ‘Deadpool 3’ is underway. ‘The Kang Dynasty’ and ‘Secret Wars’ are also in the works alongside ‘Deadpool 3,’ and the news only confirms that the MCU’s multiverse saga is headed for one ultimate battle, which is expected to happen in Secret Wars as in ‘Infinity War’ and ‘Endgame. ‘
Our working theory is that it is all part of a bigger Marvel plan to recreate the ‘Avengers: Endgame’ impact in ‘The Kang Dynasty’ and ‘Secret Wars.’ While the cast list for ‘Secret Wars’ hasn’t been named, we believe most of the X-Men in ‘Deadpool 3’ will be retained for ‘The Kang Dynasty’ and, eventually, ‘Secret Wars.’ Wolverine already plays the biggest role of any X-Man in ‘Deadpool 3,’ and we expect him to reprise it in the other two.
