“The few snippets that I know about Deadpool vs. Wolverine — or Wolverine vs. Deadpool, I’m sure that argument between Ryan and Hugh is happening as we speak — are unbelievable,” he said.

Vaughn continued, “That’s going to be the jolt… the Marvel universe is about to have a jolt of them and it’s going to bring that body back to life… I think Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman are about to save the whole Marvel universe.”

Although Vaughn is not involved in the third installment of the Deadpool franchise, he previously directed Marvel films like 2011’s X-Men: First Class. As a fan of the X-Men characters, Vaughn is hoping the film that will have Jackman reprising his Wolverine role will be a success.

“I’m a genuine fan of the X-Men, all I want is for the movies to be as good as they should be,” he added.

Deadpool 3 is set to arrive in theaters on July 26, 2024. Levy is the director of film with Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick, Zeb Wells, Reynolds and Levy credited as co-writers.
