Hugh Jackman Really Isn’t Keen On Making *That* Wolverine/Deadpool Flick

Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman, Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds – hear one name and the chances are you’ll hear Jackman savagely shutting down Reynolds’ strong desire to have a Wolverine Deadpool crossover movie.

If you’re unfamiliar with Reynolds’ dream, the Deadpool actor has been pushing some sort of crossover since 2015 –  at least. 

As far as Jackman tells the media, he’s always been a hard no on the subject. As far as we can tell from Jackman and Reynolds’ relationship online, they absolutely froth viciously trolling each other.

A recent example:

A mature response:


Not to mention, Reynolds and John Krasinski took a cheeky lil’ jab at Jackman earlier this week.

On Sunday TODAY with Willie Geist, Jackman was chatting about his new film The Front Runner when Geist brought up a past interview he did with Reynolds.

In it, Reynolds – out of the goodness of his heart – said a crossover is the right way to go since Jackman has “just been failing constantly” since the Wolverine franchise.

“[Reynolds] is relentless,” Jackman told Geist.

“He keeps coming back to me in all these ways, shapes, and forms and I said ‘Well, you know, I just don’t think the world really wants to see Deadpool with Wolverine. I mean, maybe a cameo from Deadpool – I just think, everyone’s over it – Deadpool – I don’t know.” 

Obviously a joke but still, ooooooft.

As for that lil’ career jab?

“You’re such a dag, Ryan.” – Possibly the most Dad Jackman insult ever.

I guess we’ll just have to wait and see if that Wolverine x Deadpool crossover ever happens but in the meantime, Jackman did say Wolverine will most definitely be back… he just won’t be starring as the superhero.
