With Hugh Jackman promising for real this time — pinkie swear — that “The Wolverine 3” will be his last time as the mutton-chopped mutant, that doesn’t mean he won’t get out the claws whenever duty calls. If there’s an X-Men related movie filming, you can count on the actor to probably stop by, and so it goes with “Deadpool.”
With production underway on the long-developing standalone flick starring Ryan Reynolds, it was inevitable that some fan faves of the current X-Men universe might stick their heads into the movie. And so, don’t be surprised if Jackman does just that. Maybe. “God I hope so, that would be really nice. I dunno, we’ll see. It seems like he’s open to it, but it’s gonna be more of a scheduling issue than anything else,” Reynolds told News Limited. So basically, if Jackman has time to hop on a plane to Vancouver, he’ll be in the movie. Probably. Possibly. But hey, he is in Montreal working on “X-Men: Apocalypse,” so maybe Fox will pony up the flight points to get him to the west coast.
We’ll see how this plans out, but certainly, Jackman isn’t taking the retirement from playing Wolverine sitting down. [via Uproxx]
