The upcoming “Logan” is set to serve as Hugh Jackman’s swan song to the character, his last outing as the clawed mutant Wolverine in the “X-Men” franchise after appearing in nine films as the character.
Actor Ryan Reynolds, who co-starred with Jackman in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” tells EW that if he has his way then Jackman will be getting into the role one more time – for a “Deadpool” 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.”
By internet friends he’s referring to the fanbase that turned the leaked proof of concept video that popped up on Youtube to into a viral sensation that lead to the production of the “Deadpool” movie.
The sequel starts filming next year.
