Ryan Reynolds Debunks Rumor That Deadpool Will Appear In Logan

Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds cast doubt on claims that the Merc with a Mouth would cameo in the upcoming Logan.

Asked about the report on Twitter, Reynolds denied that he filmed any scenes for the movie, claiming that Deadpool is on “a solo mission” at the moment. The final nail in the rumor’s coffin was hammered in by director James Mangold, who described it as “fake news” on the social media site:

Little is still known about the film despite its trailer, though we know that the primary villains for the film will include The Reavers as well as Wolverine’s favorite group, Weapon X. It stands to reason that Sinister’s role in the film will be tied to the creation of X-23, played by Dafne Keen in the film, the young female clone of Wolverine also along for the film’s road trip.

Sir Patrick Stewart also stars in Logan, which marks the ninth time that leading man Hugh Jackman has played Wolverine on the big screen. Mangold is directing from a script by Michael Green, Scott Frank and Mangold. Logan is produced by Simon Kinberg, Hutch Parker and Lauren Shuler Donner.

The cast for Logan also includes Richard E. Grant, Boyd Holbrook, Stephen Merchant and Dafne Keen. Look for Logan to hit theaters on March 3, 2017.

Deadpool 2, meanwhile, is being directed by Leitch from a screenplay by the returning “real heroes here,” screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
