Ryan Reynolds knows how to break the internet. And after he did just that last night by revealing that he’ll be re-teaming with Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine in Deadpool 3 – an honestly-who-saw-that-coming revelation – the duo is now attempting to remake the internet. By which we mean, they’re attempting (perhaps not as comprehensively as you’d hope) what the hell is going on. Reynolds must have anticipated everyone’s reaction to the Wolverine news, since he and Jackman had clearly already recorded a follow-up video promising to answer (some of) your many, many questions.

Look, this is Ryan Reynolds – full-on answers were never going to be on the cards here. Are there any lip-readers out there who have an idea of what they say the plot here is going to be? Maybe they’ll release an uncensored cut down the line, and reveal that they actually did blab the whole plot in this video. There are, however some interesting nuggets: most importantly, an update on how exactly this fits into what can loosely be described as the X-Men movie ‘canon’ (an extremely Jeremy Bearimy timeline at best). With some fans concerned that Wolverine’s return in Deadpool 3 will undermine the emotional potency of Logan, Reynolds sets it straight: “Logan takes place in 2029, totally separate thing,” he says. “Logan died in Logan. Not touching that.”

While much of the video is played for a joke, that line seems a tad more serious – an acknowledgement, beyond all the self-referential Deadpool-brand humour, that Wolverine (and Logan in particular) really does mean something to people. Still, it was never clear whether Logan was specifically set in the same continuity as the other X-Men films anyway, and it seems all of this entering the MCU will be some kind of multiverses jamboree. In other words, stop worrying and get ready for the Wolverine / Deadpool crossover you always dreamed off. Hey, it can’t be any worse than the finale of X-Men: Origins – Wolverine, right?
