Ryan Reynolds might be trying a bit too hard to get Hugh Jackman to team-up with him, as the longtime Wolverine actor is now suggesting that Deadpool try and seem a bit less desperate.
"I might just have a little message for Ryan," Jackman said on Good Morning America. "I love you, man. I love Deadpool. I can't wait to see the movie. You're one of my best friends. Blake, the fam, the whole thing. But back it up a little. Play a little hard to get. It's too much; it's not sexy.
Jackman sort of made a cameo in 2016’s Deadpool, in which Reynolds’ Wade Wilson wears a cutout of his People’s “Sexiest Man Alive” cover, and rumors persisted that the Merc With a Mouth might appear last year in a post-credits scene for Logan. However, those were shot down — and the James Mangold film didn’t even have a post-credits sequence. The closest we got was the Deadpool teaser that played in theaters with Logan.
The two starred together in 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine. However, Reynolds has long pushed for a team-up movie with Jackman and to have him appear in Deadpool 2. Although the two recently shared some screen time to record a birthday message, there's no indication they'll team-up again any time soon, especially since Jackman retired from the role.
Directed by David Leitch, Deadpool 2 features Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Leslie Uggams as Blind Al, Stefan Kapičić as the voice of Colossus, and Karan Soni as Dopinder, with newcomers Zazie Beetz as Domino, Josh Brolin as Cable and Julian Dennison as Russell. The film opens May 18.
