Will Wolverine Cameo In The Deadpool Movie?

By now, every fan knows that Wolverine 3 will be Hugh Jackman’s last time playing Wolverine, but it appears before then, he may be sneaking in a few other appearances as the clawed mutant. There have been reports of Wolverine appearing in X-Men: Apocalypse, and now we’re wondering whether it might be the same case for Deadpool after Jackman shot this video from the February blockbuster’s set.

The Merc with the Mouth’s solo movie is currently undergoing reshoots, and while star Ryan Reynolds was in makeup, he did an "impression" for Twitter of Jackman reminding everyone to send their votes in for People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive cover. Admittedly, Reynolds’ Jackman sounds like a stereotypical Australian accent, but it is fairly amusing, especially when he exaggerates shutting his eyes while saying "sexiest." However, beyond this video, the big question is, "What was Hugh Jackman doing on the Deadpool set?"

This could have been something as simple as Jackman being in town and wanting to see how the reshoots are going, similar to how Patrick Stewart visited X-Men: Apocalypse during its principal photography. However, we’re also wondering if Jackman might be there to shoot a scene or two for Deadpool, since he may not have had time to be involved when the movie was shooting earlier this year. Although Weapon X provides the connective thread between the two characters in this universe (just like the comics), it’s never actually been said if Wolverine is appearing, though Reynolds previously said he would like it to happen. Obviously, given Jackman’s own projects, it would be nothing more than a cameo... like his appearance in X-Men: First Class. But hey, we’d take what we could get.

If Wolverine does show up, hopefully they would pair him and Deadpool together in a scene. Logan and Wade Wilson got to exchange some dialogue in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but later in the movie, Wilson got his mouth sewn shut by William Stryker, and the climactic battle of that film was a letdown for so many fans that it’s been retconned out of continuity by X-Men: Days of Future Past. In Deadpool’s case, their interaction would be something akin to their hilarious encounters in the comics, and fans wouldn’t have it any other way. A Wolverine cameo would also remind usual moviegoers that Deadpool takes place in the X-Men universe, in case Colossus’ casual cameo wasn’t enough. It’s just a shame we won’t get to see Jackman and Reynolds recreate the volleyball scene from Top Gun.

With or without Wolverine, Deadpool will hit theaters on February 12, 2016.
