Judging by the trailer, Logan seems to be gearing up to be unlike any other comic book film we’ve seen. Fans are not the only people looking at the movie in this light, as Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds thinks that Hugh Jackman’s last time wearing the claws could win an Oscar:
“ ‘Logan’ looks like a movie that might break that glass ceiling. I know first-hand that it’s amazing. I’ve seen some of it. It’s mind-blowing. It relies a lot on character.”
And it seems that Hugh Jackman feels the same way about Deadpool”s success:
“When I hosted the Oscars, ‘Batman’ didn’t get nominated, and everyone was talking about it. It’s a stretch to say these are injustices in life — we are happy and making movies. But I love it when someone like Ryan gets recognized. These big-budget or comic book movies are not easy to pull off.”
With the two so fond of each other, it seems like a crossover film would be the only logical path forward. Reynolds has expressed his desire for said movie, but now we have a statement from Jackman on the matter:
Reynolds: “I would love to play Deadpool for as long as they would let me play Deadpool,” said Reynolds. “We have outlines and stories for a number of different films.”
Jackman: “I’m hesitating,” said Jackman. “Because I could totally see how that’s the perfect fit. But the timing may be wrong.”
Reynolds: “I have no idea if I can change his mind,” Reynolds said. “It’s the audience: I would exclusively exploit that relationship to get Hugh back for another one.”
Perhaps with the help of fans, the Merc could convince Jackman to put the claws on at least once more for the team-up that everyone is dying to see. Be sure to stay tuned for updates on all things X-Men and Deadpool!
