As painful as it is to write, Hugh Jackman is now seemingly done with the ‘Wolverine’ character. One of the latest projects that fans wished we would see Hugh return in is Deadpool 2. In an interview with THR, Deadpool 2 screenwriters, Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, were proposed the idea of Hugh Jackman appearing as himself in the upcoming sequel to which they replied with the following…
“I like that. Deadpool lives in a world where Hugh Jackman is out there. He’s got the People’s Sexiest Man Alive cover that he staples to his forehead in the first movie, so maybe he could meet Hugh as Hugh. That would be really funny.”
Take this with a grain of salt as the original idea did come from the interviewer and not the screenwriters themselves. However, having Hugh appear in Deadpool 2 would mean that Hugh could appear in the film without having to go through the rigorous Wolverine workout and diet. Given the way that Logan ended some fans may not want to see Hugh in an X-Men film again after the final act of Logan being such a wonderful send-off.
Deadpool 2 has no specific release date as of yet but early 2018 is when the studio is currently aiming for.
