Wolverine's Hugh Jackman just posted a first look at his costume for Deadpool 3

Described by Ryan Reynolds as a Multiversal "road trip" with Wolverine, the 2024 Deadpool threequel is both actors' first foray into the MCU and one with endless potential for crossovers, cameos, and Multiverse Variants. 

Following news of Jennifer Garner's return as Elektra and the reveal of Reynolds' new Deadpool costume, Jackman just upped the ante in confirming Wolverine's new look ahead of his May 2024 MCU debut.

Wolverine's Deadpool 3 Costume Revealed

Hugh Jackman shared the first photo of his Wolverine's new costume alongside Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool on his Instagram story.

The biggest shock is that this version of Wolverine's costume is bright yellow, a stark contrast to his character's prior on-screen looks in the Fox-Verse Marvel films

In fact, it's more in line with the character's signature look from the comics, X-Men: The Animated Series, and what audiences will see in X-Men '97 on Disney+.

A higher-res version of the image gives a better look at some of the costume's details, such as the intricate panel lining along the suit.

The better quality also confirms that the belt on Logan's outfit is adorned with the X-Men's signature 'X' in red.

Notably missing is Wolverine's signature cowl that often comes with this incarnation of the suit. Will fans get to see the iconic mask in Deadpool 3?

In a past interview, Jackman alluded to his involvement in Deadpool 3 as "a dual role," leaving fans to question whether he's playing multiple versions - or Variants - of his character or simply starring alongside Reynolds. 

Is Hugh Jackman's Wolverine From X-Men '97?

On the heels of the news of Jennifer Garner's Elektra reprisal and possibly other Marvel-Fox characters, fan interest in Deadpool 3 was already sky-high.

Not only did Jackman's on-set photo of his Wolverine costume pour fuel on this bonfire of anticipation but it may have teased more of the film's Multiversal nature. 

Since Hugh Jackman's X-Men character died in 2017's Logan, just how Marvel Studios intended to resurrect the character has been a major topic of concern. 

What better way to preserve the events of Logan while continuing to tell new stories than with Wolverine Variants, particularly one from Marvel Studios' own X-Men '97?

In addition to the actor's prior quotes about his "dual role," there are rumors of Owen Wilson's Mobius from Loki appearing as well. Couple that with the character's newly revealed threads, and it's tough to deny that all signs point toward the possibility. 

With Deadpool 3's release less than a year away, audiences are sure to see and hear more about what the film truly has in store for Wolverine. 

In the meantime, it's fantastic to see Hugh Jackman finally sporting his iconic character's equally iconic look. 

Deadpool 3 arrives in theaters on May 3, 2024.
