Last week, we saw Wolverine Vs Deadpool with Deadpool take a sporting jab at his former co-star Hugh Jackman during Australia Day. Of course Marvel’s Merc with a Mouth brought up Wolverine: Origins and said that it was a low point in his career. I would probably agree with him…but it was also a low point in Wolverine’s career! Wouldn’t that make them brother in arms? I guess Liev Schreibertooth should probably get an honorable mention too.
Speaking with Yahoo, Hugh Jackman responded to the viral video from Deadpool. “Love it. It’s just brilliant. I mean, I love Ryan, he’s a good mate of mine. He’s so fantastic.” He then added that Wolverine could totally take Deadpool. “A hundred percent.” That’s pretty confident from Weapon X and that would make for a glorious fight! “I’ve never thought about it till now, but doing something with Ryan – he’s awesome – that’s always attractive to me,” Hugh responded. That’s always nice to hear that Jackman would be down for an appearance in the Deadpool sequel!
As it currently stands with the next stand alone Wolverine movie and Apocalypse, Jackman would have played Wolverine 9 times(I’m totally counting that cameo in First Class). “I don’t really count the numbers but I certainly am amazed at 17 years of playing this character, which I love, obviously,” Jackman stated. “And it’s been the backbone of my career, and I am ridiculously grateful to the fans and I am really taking this last one so seriously. I’ve never worked as hard on one as this, and I really leave it on a high. Not just for me, but for all the fans. It’s kind of amazing, no one really saw all this coming.” Could Deadpool 2 mean a 10th time for Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine? At least a cameo?
