With production set to begin on Deadpool 2 next year, Ryan Reynolds is set to be busy for the foreseeable future. But once he’s done on the movie, it sounds like he quite fancies luring Hugh Jackman out of his Wolverine retirement.
Jackman is playing Wolverine for the final time in the upcoming Logan, that lands in cinemas in March 2017. After that, he’s been adamant that he’s done with the character. In a new chat with Entertainment Weekly, though, Reynolds has said “I want Deadpool and Wolverine in a movie together”.
How serious he was being is unclear, but he also added that “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”.
Reynolds also praised Jackman as “one of the best human beings”, arguing that a Deadpool and Wolverine crossover movie “would light the screen on fire”.
It’s a long shot, of course. But stranger things have happened.
