Newly released set photos unveil the exciting face-off between Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool and Hugh Jackman's iconic Wolverine in the upcoming film Deadpool 3.
Back in September 2022, Reynolds caused a stir on the internet when he announced Jackman's return to his beloved X-Men character for the highly anticipated third installment. Fans had long expressed their eagerness to witness the dynamic between these two characters on the big screen, and now their wish is finally coming true.
In fact, the world was recently treated to its first glimpse of Wolverine donning his vibrant and faithful yellow and blue X-Men uniform for the movie—an appearance that fans had been eagerly awaiting for years.
Deadpool Vs. Wolverine
Freshly released set photos from the production of Deadpool 3 capture an epic clash between Ryan Reynolds' beloved Merc With A Mouth and Hugh Jackman's iconic Wolverine.
Although no specific details are provided, the captivating scene takes place on a beach, with both characters donning their faithfully recreated comic book costumes.
In this specific segment of the stunt scene, Wade Wilson, appears to be facing some challenges—fortunately, both he and Logan possess regenerative healing abilities.
In the comics, these two characters have a tumultuous relationship and frequently engage in physical altercations, often without a significant underlying reason for their quarrels. However, a significant bond they share is their involvement as subjects of the Weapon X program.
For an exhilarating display of their encounter, you can watch the video below, with particularly thrilling battle shots occurring between the timestamps of 1:35 and 3:00.

What Are Logan and Wade Fighting About?
In-fighting between Wolverine and Deadpool was one of the first things teased during Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynold’s big announcement video. Though, fans probably weren’t expecting to get a tease of it so soon.
It is highly likely that this isn't the sole instance of the two heroes clashing throughout the film. Given their contrasting personalities, it is difficult to pinpoint the exact cause of their current disagreement.
One plausible assumption is that Logan may be upset with Wade Wilson for disrupting his original timeline. Such a scenario aligns with Deadpool's penchant for meddling with temporal affairs and ties into the circulating rumors about time travel and the involvement of the TVA (Time Variance Authority).
Regrettably, fans will likely have to wait for a considerable time before official footage is unveiled. Although Marvel Studios will not be present at San Diego Comic-Con this year, it would have been the ideal venue for a trailer or sneak peek premiere.
Hopefully, something will hit the web by the end of the year.
