Even Deadpool can be tricked, as Ryan Reynolds demonstrates in photos that depict himself as a victim of a holiday prank orchestrated by Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal.
As Reynolds relates in an Instagram post, he was invited to what he thought was a holiday sweater party, and dressed accordingly, as a Christmas gift topped by a large, gold bow. However, it turned out the event was a far more casual affair. Reynolds is captured in the photos looking visibly annoyed, while Jackman and Gyllenhaal are shown celebrating their victory, and then congratulating each other on a job well done.
Reynolds enjoys pranking fans and celebrities with the sense of humor that made him a perfect for Deadpool, so it's unclear whether this was staged or if the actors friends actually did trick him.
Reynolds and Jackman have jokingly been at war with each other in large part over the push for Jackman to don the claws one final time in Deadpool/Wolverine crossover.
Jackman announced last moth that he’ll stage a worldwide tour performing songs from his diverse career in musicals, so a return to the role of Wolverine appears even less likely than before. Gyllenhaal and Reynolds worked together in the sci-fi thriller Life.
