Ryan Reynolds Still Wants To Make A Deadpool/Wolverine Movie With Hugh Jackman


Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman seem to be on separate paths within the X-Men film universe. Deadpool’s star is on the rise, but unfortunately Hugh Jackman’s career as Wolverine is winding down. Following the success of “Deadpool” fans were hopeful that Fox might take another shot at getting Wolverine and Deadpool together on screen, and hopefully make us all forget about “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.”

Unfortunately it looks unlikely to happen, as Hugh Jackman has already declared that “Logan” will be his last run as Wolverine. However, that hasn’t stopped Ryan Reynolds from hoping that he can talk Jackman into playing Wolverine one more time.

“I want Deapdool and Wolverine in a movie together,” Reynolds told EW. “What we’re gonna have to do is convince Hugh. If anything, I’m going to need to do what I can to get my internet friends back on board to help rally another cause down the line.”

If you follow Ryan Reynolds on social media, then you’re probably well aware that he’s quite fond of Hugh Jackman. He also told EW that he’s not just interested in doing the movie because he wants the characters together on the big screen, he also just wants to do it because he genuinely loves Hugh Jackman.

“Deadpool 2” is currently in development, and FOX is already planning for “Deadpool 3” which will reportedly include X-Force.

A New Mutants movie is in development, and it’s also been rumored that FOX is looking to reboot their main X-Men franchise somehow. As for how Wolverine fits into those plans, and/or who might be playing the character after Hugh Jackman retires, that remains to be seen.
