Josh Brolin might reprise his villainous role in the Deadpool franchise later this year.

The actor, 56, teased as much in an interview with Collider while promoting his latest film, Dune: Part Two.

When asked by the outlet if he was in the upcoming third Deadpool film, Deadpool & Wolverine, he joked, "No. I don't know. Because Ryan [Reynolds] doesn't like me? I don't know." After a bit of a pause, he added, "Maybe."

So, the outcome of his status in the project is still very much unknown.

Brolin played Cable in Deadpool 2, which found Ryan Reynolds' Wade Wilson calling together a group of mutant rogues to protect a young boy with mutant powers from the time-traveling cyborg.

Hugh Jackman returns to the X-Men franchise as Wolverine for the new movie, which will also star Leslie Uggams, Karan Soni, Morena Baccarin and Brianna Hildebran.

Reynolds has confirmed that his friend Taylor Swift isn't in the film, but he announced on Valentine's Day that Emma Corrin will join the Marvel franchise.

In July 2023, The Hollywood Reporter reported that Jennifer Garner would reprise her role as the assassin Elektra in the film. She last played the part in a 2005 standalone film about the character.

Little is known about the plot of the film, but it follows Wolverine, who is "recovering from his injuries when he crosses paths with the loudmouth, Deadpool," per the official synopsis. Eventually, the pair will "team up to defeat a common enemy."

Jackman remained tight-lipped about the movie's plot in a 2022 PEOPLE interview. "I'll probably have more fun on this movie than any other I've ever done," he said at the time.

"I think being on set with [Ryan] every day and those two on film in every city together everyday … I think it's fair to say they'll be punching the s--- out of each other the whole time," he added.

The first trailer of the film premiered during the 2024 Super Bowl.

Deadpool & Wolverine hits theaters on July 26.
