Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman broke the internet earlier this week when they announced that Jackman — who “retired” from playing Wolverine following the release of the 2017 comic book movie masterpiece Logan — would play the role “one more time” in Deadpool 3.

The video announcing Jackman’s return has since racked up over a million likes, which likely puts it in the Top 50 most-liked tweets of all time (all of the lists I can find only go up to 30, and about half of them are BTS tweets).

Then, the following day, the pair posted a second video that “explains” Jackman’s return and how it won’t lessen the emotional and narrative impact of Logan, which many fans consider to be one of the best comic book movie films ever made.

What all those videos have in common, though, is that they were produced. To some extent, the pair were acting. So how does Jackman *actually* feel about returning as Wolverine (as if there was any doubt)? This video should tell you all you need to know as our man Hugh is GASSED up to toss on the Adamantium claws one more time.
