Ryan Reynolds insists he is not responsible for Hugh Jackman's sensational return as Wolverine for Deadpool 3.

Jackman has played Wolverine for over two decades, starting with X-Men and finishing with Logan, which was released in 2017.

The character's arc and ultimate death in that movie led many to speculate that his time playing the mutant was over. Jackman himself even expressed apprehension about returning.

However, earlier this year, Reynolds confirmed that Jackman would return as Logan in Deadpool 3. Within the first two Deadpool movies, Wade Wilson made constant references to Wolverine, even the character's death, utilising his ability to break the fourth wall.

Reynolds has campaigned for Jackman to come back for years, but that doesn't mean the return was down to him.

"I think you're giving me too much credit," he told Collider.

I don't believe that I'm responsible for Hugh coming back. I always wanted Hugh to come back. My first meeting with Kevin Feige when Disney bought Fox years ago, maybe three years ago, or three and a half, four years ago, I'm not sure, was about doing a movie with the two of us, a Deadpool Wolverine movie. And that was not possible at the time.

"And then Hugh just happened to call at that perfect moment and express that he'd be interested in coming back and doing this one more time. And the contents of that conversation, I'll let Hugh, because I know it's only inevitable that you and Hugh are going to speak at some point soon, I'm sure. I'll let Hugh answer that on his own. But he expressed interest in coming back, and then it was my job to take that to Kevin Feige one more time and sell it."

Not a lot is known about the plot of Deadpool 3, but Jackman has previously expressed interest in it being a 'buddy comedy' type movie.
