Hugh Jackman Points to Bad Timing for Wolverine / Deadpool Team-up Film

Will they or won’t they?

Not too long ago, the internet was rife with the rumors that Ryan’s Reynolds Deadpool was going to make a quick, possible tail end appearance in Hugh Jackman‘s Wolverine film: Logan. But to further the proof that we just aren’t meant to have nice things: both Jackman,  Reynolds, and the film’s director have denied the rumors.

This probably won’t stop Deadpool and Wolverine fans from holding out hope for a surprise Easter egg at the end of the new Logan movie. But for now, we wait.

Reynolds shared with Variety his hopes for including Wolverine into the mix.

“I have no ?idea if I can change his mind,” Reynolds adds. ?“It’s the audience: I would exclusively exploit that relationship to get Hugh back for another one.”

In a separate interview, Jackman stated:

“I’m hesitating,” Jackman tells the outlet. “Because I could totally see how that’s the perfect fit. But the timing may be wrong.”

Bad timing? There is so much thing as bad timing for possibly the best superhero buddy comedy ever. If anything, Jackman should be looking to rectify what the X-Men film franchise has wrought by rewarding the fanbase for its years of loyalty and patience. A Wolverine / Deadpool team-up film may be the penitence required.

Deadpool 2 will be released in U.S. theaters through 20th Century Fox on March 2, 2018. If a Wolverine / Deadpool team-up film does happen, it will be after Deadpool 2 is released, possibly in 2020.
