Well, if nothing else we can say that 2016 has truly been a formative one for Foxâ€™s Marvel properties. Before the release of Deadpool, it wasnâ€™t clear if making an R-rated comic book movie was something that could actually translate into big box office bucks. Now we know that so long as the studio works with the character in mind, an R-rated hit is indeed quite possible. Itâ€™s with that solid mindset that actor Hugh Jackman is set to star one final time as Wolverine in the upcoming R-rated flick, Logan.
This has long been heralded as Jackmanâ€™s final portrayal as the beloved comic book character, but thatâ€™s never stopped from fans envisioning a future where we could see his Wolverine and Ryan Reynoldsâ€™ Deadpool on the big screen together. In fact, fans arenâ€™t the only ones fantasizing about the possibilities we could have between these two.
Speaking with EW, Reynolds expressed his interest in the two supers sharing the screen someday.
â€œI want Deadpool and Wolverine in a movie together. What weâ€™re gonna have to do is convince Hugh. If anything, Iâ€™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.
â€œHugh 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 I genuinely love the guy.â€
Of course, you canâ€™t really run with this idea without hitting a few brick walls first. Jackman has portrayed Wolverine for over 15 years now, and as such, he is fully ready to move one. With that in mind, perhaps this is a film best done in about 10-15 years, right? However, If you follow that train of thought, youâ€™re then youâ€™re dealing with a Jackman thats well into his 60s. Unless you want to portray him as an Old Man Logan type, then it doesnâ€™t seem like an idea thatâ€™s in the cards.
When all said and done, itâ€™s a fun pipe dream, but unless itâ€™s tackled in the next 5-7 years, I donâ€™t quite see this as something thatâ€™ll ever really see the light of day.
What do you think of Reynoldsâ€™ comments? Could you see Jackman picking up the claws once again, before heâ€™s even gotten the chance to truly put them down? Let us know your thoughts down below!
