Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds
Los Angeles: Ryan Reynolds may be very excited to team up with Hugh Jackman for any Wolverine/Deadpool movie in the future, but the latter doesn’t think it will happen.
In Facebook Live Q&A Jackman, who appeared along with “Logan” director James Mangold and co-star Patrick Stewart, responded to fan’s question about Wolverine/Deadpool movie.
The question was coming from France and read by Stewart. “Hugh, would you ever consider teaming up with Deadpool?” Stewart recited the question. Jackman jokingly replied, “I’ve not heard that one. Deadpool is the other mutant?” And Mangold said, “It’s Green Lantern in a different outfit.”
Jackman later suggested that the collaboration might be possible only if it happened ten years ago. “Look, if that movie had appeared ten years ago, it’d be a totally different story,” said Jackman.
“But I knew 2.5 years ago that this was the last one. The first call I made was to Jim (Mangold). I said, ‘Jim, I got one more shot at this.’ As soon as I got with Jim and started working on the idea of it, I was never more excited. But it feels like the right time,” the actor said.
“Deadpool, go for it, man. You do your thing. You don’t need me,” he added.
The speculation about Wolverine/Deadpool movie has been long emerging. Reynolds expressed his enthusiasm about the crossover in some interviews and even “Deadpool 2” writers thought that the crossover would be potential.
