WATCH: Hugh Jackman doesn’t think the world wants a Wolverine/Deadpool movie. Wut?!

November 22nd, 2018 by Marc Comments

It’s not too often we feel we need to correct Hugh Jackman but tonight? Tonight we need to correct Hugh Jackman.

Speaking to Willie Geist (below), the actor is asked if Wolverine will ever be back and the actor replies that he’s certain he will: “Oh, Wolverine will be back. Someone’s going to buy him, I don’t know,” Jackman says.

But, when asked if it’ll be him, the actor replies “No,” then adds: “But Ryan is relentless.”

Ryan, of course, is Ryan Reynolds, Deadpool himself.

“He keeps coming back to me in all these ways, shapes and forms,” Jackman says… and we like what we’re hearing, until he adds: “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.”

Now, we know Jackman is smiling as he says this and we know he’s bound to know the world DOES want a Wolverine/Deadpool movie but it sounds like we can draw a line under that one, guys.


Our maybe it’s just us? Would you like to see the two anti-heroes team up? Let us know…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
