Ryan Reynolds warmed the hearts of many movie goers in 2016 with his foul-mouthed mutated anti-hero ‘Deadpool’ in one of the best superhero films in recent memory. The movie features some nods to another Marvel bad-ass, Wolverine who has long been played by Hugh Jackman who is set to release his final flick as the metal-clawed conflicted X-Man with ‘Logan’ in March 2017. Reynolds though stirred the pot recently, when he made it clear in a recent chat with Entertainment Weekly that he wants to do a Deadpool/Wolverine movie and hopes to get Jackman to stick around for the hypothetical all-star team-up film.
“I want Deapdool and Wolverine in a movie together. 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.” said Reynolds. Yeah, I know it’s makes my inner-nerd salivate like a dog waiting for a steak come off the grill. I believe us the fans out here, reading this are Ryan’s “internet friends” so hopefully we can answer his call. Reynold previously got test-footage of Deadpool buzzing online so well a while back, it forced the film into production.
Wolvie and Deadpool have tangled on the big screen before, in the lackluster ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’ which depicted ‘the Merc with a Mouth’ as more of a super-weapon creature and not a super-weapon smart-ass with a lot of fun wisecracks and charisma. It didn’t feel nearly as special this potential super-buddy adventure could be. Still if Jackman wants to hang up his claws after playing the character for so long, who can blame him right?
Reynolds and Jackman get a long pretty well in this fun video where Reynolds fumbles an interview with Jackman and it’s just delightful. Can we get this movie please?!
