During a recent interview, Deadpool writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese discussed the possibility of a crossover film featuring the merc with the mouth, and his arch nemesis/best buddy, Wolverine.
Rumors have been flying since Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds said during a December interview with Entertainment Weekly “I want Deadpool and Wolverine in a movie together.” The primary hurdle he cited was Hugh Jackman’s insistence that Logan–the upcoming film inspired by Mark Millar and Steve McNiven’s Old Man Logan comic series–would be his last appearance as the cantankerous clawed mutant. Reynolds called for fans to convince Jackman not to hang up the claws, which seemed to have some effect. “I’m hesitating,” Jackman told Variety, “because I could totally see how that’s the perfect fit. But the timing may be wrong.”
Some speculated that Deadpool may turn up in a post-credits sequence in Logan, but it has been confirmed that won’t be happening, as the tone of the film wouldn’t allow for Deadpool’s particular brand of humor.
So while it’s not on the cards, for now, it seems like the best thing fans can do is to make enough noise to cause the studios and license holders to sit up and take notice.
Logan hits theaters in early March 2017.
