Ryan Reynolds Still Wants To Make A Deadpool/Wolverine Movie

Hugh Jackman's Wolverine may have bitten the bullet in 2017's Logan, but death hasn't discouraged Ryan Reynolds from his ultimate wish: a Deadpool/Wolverine team-up movie. 

Chatting with Entertainment Weekly, Reynolds revealed that he still wants the two famous X-Men universe characters to join forces in a film somewhere down the line — which would be feasible given that Logan takes place years ahead of when the upcoming Deadpool 2 is set, leaving plenty of time to slip a buddy mutant movie in somewhere. 

"He's alive and well in my timeline," said Reynolds. "There is a Logan running around out there with a little bushy chest and his little sharpy, sharpy claws, and he is alive and well and ready to go. I would love that."

Of course, some sharp-minded fans will be quick to point out that Deadpool and Wolverine already appeared together in 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine — and they'd be correct — but the fact that audiences and critics alike weren't all that enthused with the film as a whole, plenty of X-Men series enthusiasts have hoped the two would link arms (claws? katanas?) for a bigger, better movie. 

Reynolds then admitted that it could be a bit of a struggle getting Jackman to agree to revisit Wolverine. "I think convincing Hugh of that would be a near-impossible feat, but there's no human being I love more than Hugh Jackman in that universe, and equally so as a friend. He's just the best," the actor gushed. "I already miss him as Logan, so I'm one of those guys that whenever I see him, I'm like, 'Come on, man. Just one more. Come on. We'll do it together. It'll be fun. Come on! On three. Here we go, together. One, two, three, together,' and it's always just me saying it."

The actor first expressed his desire to have Deadpool and Wolverine in the same film back in 2016, when he told EW, "I want Deadpool 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."

Reynolds added at the time, "Hugh Jackman is one of the best human beings. Part of the reason I want to do a Deadpool/Wolverine movie is not just because I think the two would light the screen on fire, but [also because] I genuinely love the guy."

There's no telling whether we'll ever actually see Deadpool and Wolverine share scenes in a place that isn't our own imagination, but hey, if Ryan Reynolds can dream, so can we.
