Unfortunately for “X-Men” fans, “Logan” will be Hugh Jackman’s last outing in a solo “Wolverine” movie. But a recent rumour claiming that Deadpool will have a cameo in “Logan” has got fans even more excited for the movie.
The Wrap reported yesterday (Wednesday, 28th December) that Ryan Reynolds had recently shot a secret scene as Deadpool, adding that The Merc With a Mouth will likely appear in a post credits scene. If this rumour was true, it would be Reynolds’ 2nd appearance in a “Wolverine” film.
Sadly, both Reynolds and Jackman, together with director James Mangold have taken to Twitter to debunk all claims, therefore dashing any dreams of seeing the reunion of Deadpool and Wolverine on the big screen. Sorry, “Deadpool” fans 🙁
Despite having to break the bad news to fans, Reynolds couldn’t help but crack a little joke, saying, “Sadly, not true. Prisoner 24601 is on a solo mission.” For those that don’t know, Prisoner 24601 refers to Jackman’s character, Jean Valjean, from “Les Misérables”.
Mangold also tweeted, “DEADPOOL IS NOT IN MY FILM. Does all caps help confirm it?” Jackman later agreed with Reynolds and the filmmaker, by simply writing, “what they said”. So we guess it’s pretty clear that Deadpool won’t be showing up in “Logan” after all.
