Hugh Jackman as Wolverine in Deadpool 3
When asked why he decided to make his tenth appearance as Wolverine, Jackman noted that he had refused to return many times before, but “Deadpool 3” turned out to be a challenge worth changing his mind. The actor also revealed that his wife had a big role in this decision.
I’m asked every single day, whether it’s in interviews or by Ryan Reynolds calling, “Can we do that again?” I replied, No, I’m done with that. Someone said to me, I think she was my wife Deb, what do you want to do next? (…) And he just got me. Because when I think of Ryan, Deadpool, and Wolverine, who are classic comic book enemies, there’s a dynamic between them that I never had a chance to bring out as Wolverine. (…) Remember the wonderful movie with Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy “48 Hours”? (…) He reminds me of these two characters, you know, a smart guy and a gray guy, old, hard, snappy, describing me, and I thought it would be fun, something I had never done before. And I can’t wait.

When asked about returning to his signature Wolverine form, Jackman replied that he knows how to do it:
I have learned that this process cannot be rushed, it takes time. So we have 6 months. And during that time, I wouldn’t do anything else. I will be with my family and I will do sports. This will be my job for 6 months. And now I’m really fit. Thanks to 8 shows a week on Broadway where I sing and dance. So I am healthy and this is a good starting point.
