Australian actor Hugh Jackman, renowned for his portrayal of the iconic X-Men character Wolverine, recently took to social media to announce the conclusion of filming for the highly anticipated "Deadpool 3." In a heartfelt Instagram post that has left fans both excited and nostalgic, Jackman shared a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the final moments of his journey as Wolverine, alongside his on-screen comrade Ryan Reynolds, who embodies the irreverent Deadpool.

The image captures the two actors in their superhero personas, but with a grittier and battle-worn appearance than fans are accustomed to seeing. Reynolds dons his signature red and black Deadpool suit, now covered in grime and seemingly splattered with fake blood.

Jackman, on the other hand, maintains his classic Wolverine appearance, though the familiar yellow and blue suit is obscured by the artful application of movie-making grime. In his Instagram post, Jackman expressed his gratitude to Shawn Levy, the director of "Deadpool 3," and his close friend Ryan Reynolds, whom he affectionately referred to as "best mates." He also reflected on the arduous aspects of preparing for the role, including rigorous training and a strict diet, while fondly reminiscing about the joyous moments shared on set.

Stars' Emotional Farewell

Jackman stated, "What a ride! I've loved every minute of making this movie. Well... not the 4 AM training or the steamed fish and veggies four times a day for six months, but the other 93.2%." He extended his appreciation to the entire cast and crew, emphasizing their exceptional contributions to the project.

With a hint of excitement, he concluded, "July 26th can't come soon enough. Time to shave." Reynolds, not to be outdone in expressing his emotions, shared his sentiments on the film's completion in a typical Deadpool-style post.

Accompanied by a cheeky photo of his costume-clad midsection, Reynolds humorously remarked, "The suit hides blood. Also sweat… But today, with Deadpool wrapping, it's mostly tears." He conveyed his immense gratitude to the dedicated team behind the film, who persevered through various challenges, including adverse weather conditions and their friendly rivalry with Hugh Jackman.

As fans eagerly await the release of "Deadpool 3" on July 26th, the bond between Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds, both on and off screen, continues to captivate and entertain audiences worldwide.
