Yesterday, Mangold tweeted a GIF of the movie showing Logan’s final battle against a clone of himself, a battle that left the original Logan mortally wounded. While many saw this as some kind of weakness towards the announcement that Jackman would be returning, he clarified that it didn’t mean that at all and that regardless, Logan will always be around.

“IH, my goodness! Everyone needs to relax,” Mangold said. “Just kidding! I’m fine! Logan will always be there. Multiverse or prequel, time warp or wormhole, canon or non-canon or even without a justification, I can’t wait to see what madness my dear friends [Ryan Reynolds] and [Hugh Jackman] cook up!”

In a response to the tweets, both Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman commented on the matter, calling Mangold “THE GOAT” in a laudatory response.

Deadpool 3 was written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick from an earlier draft of Bob’s Burgers the duo Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Loeglin.
