Hugh Jackman Isn't Sure a Deadpool and Wolverine Crossover Would Work

Logan was the final performance of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine and it was a hell of a way to go out. The movie was fantastic and it was so good to see Jackman finally get the chance to play this character in a genuinely terrific movie. Now the character has been semi-retired but Jackman doesn't think he'll stay in the shadows very long. He believes that the character will be back and he told People as much in a new interview.

"Oh, Wolverine will be back," he said. "Someone's going to buy him, I don't know."

Hugh Jackman Isn't Sure a Deadpool and Wolverine Crossover Would Work

Wolverine might be back but it won't be Jackman picking up the claws again. That doesn't mean that Ryan Reynolds isn't trying to convince Jackman to return to the role in some capacity.

"No, but Ryan [Reynolds] is relentless," Jackman said. "He keeps coming back to me in all these ways, shapes and forms," Jackman continued. "I just said, 'You know, I just don't think the world really wants to see Deadpool with Wolverine.' Maybe a cameo from Deadpool? I just think it runs over it for Deadpool."

Whether or not Reynolds ends up winning this one is still up in the air but if there was anyone who could convince Jackman to play Wolverine again it would be Reynolds. As for the role we will see Wolverine on the big screen again but it'll be played by someone else. The inevitable passage of time has always been the biggest problem when it comes to live-action superhero movies. There are plenty of mutants though so maybe letting Wolverine sit on the backburner for a couple of years before you recast is the best way to approach this situation.
