Hugh Jackman is saying goodbye to Wolverine!

On Wednesday, the actor, 55, revealed that he'd finished shooting Deadpool 3 with his pal Ryan Reynolds as he declared it’s “time to shave” in a video shared on Instagram.

In the sped-up clip, Jackman could be seen having his longtime X-Men character's signature facial hair shaved off, along with a haircut.

Meanwhile, in the accompanying caption, the star thanked Reynolds, 47, and the movie’s director Shawn Levy — and also shared what he won’t miss about making the superhero flick.

“What a ride! I’ve loved every minute of making this movie. Well … not the 4a training or the steamed fish and veg 4 x a day for 6 months but the other 93.2%,” he wrote.

“A collective thank you to the entire cast and crew. You are all aces! If you’re reading this and think I mean you, I do. To two of my best mates @vancityreynolds and @slevydirect I literally couldn’t have done this without you. LITERALLY! July 26th can’t come soon enough. Time to shave.”

Reynolds also shared his own post about the film wrapping and touched on his friendship with Jackman and Levy, 55.

Alongside a cheeky photo of his crotch area in Deadpool's red bodysuit, the Welcome to Wrexham star wrote, "The suit hides blood. Also sweat… But today, with Deadpool wrapping, it’s mostly tears. A giant and forever thanks to the cast and crew of our film who battled wind, rain, strikes and @thehughjackman… all under the stalwart leadership of @slevydirect."

"I got to make a movie with my closest pals and that doesn’t happen very often. See ya July 26th… ⚔️🥺⚔️," he added.

The duo's posts come after they were spotted filming scenes for the movie in the South of England on Monday.
