Ryan Reynolds Wants To Make A Wolverine/Deadpool Crossover Movie
Spoiler alert. If you've not seen Logan, the last Wolverine movie, then look away now...
Right, well, now we've got the losers out the way, let's cut to the chase. Wolverine might not be as dead as it seemed - or at least, Ryan Reynolds is willing to dig up his adamantium corpse (and if that isn't the name of a fantasy metal band, it should be) and bring him back to life.
The Deadpool star, who is currently doing the rounds to promote the sequel to the potty-mouthed superhero comedy, has publicly floated the idea of inviting Hugh Jackman along for a movie - a Deadpool/Wolverine crossover for the ages.
"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," Ryan told Entertainment Weekly.
The pair have appeared together on the big screen before, of course, in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, although in that movie the 'merc with a mouth' famously had his lips sewn shut so he couldn't speak - a far cry from the relentless quip machine we know and love. This might be the sort of thing that gets superfans up in arms over continuity issues.
Plots aside, Ryan thinks that the biggest stumbling block is convincing Hugh Jackman himself to don the claws and dirty vest combo one more time.
"I think convincing Hugh of that would be a near-impossible feat," he said, "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. 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."
Of course, given that Deadpool 1 made over $350 million at the box office and the three most recent Wolverine films made well over $1 billion combined, we think the good people at Marvel might be on board as well. Just a hunch.
