New fan art imagines Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine in the classic suit with Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool
Although Hugh Jackman retired from the role of Wolverine with the release of director James Mangold’s Logan, some fans are still hoping to see him return to the role and potentially wear the character’s classic outfit for the first time. Among fans, one of the most popular ideas for a potential return of Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine involves a crossover with Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool.
Now, the digital artist known as “spdrmnkyxxiii” has unveiled new fan art that imagines what such a crossover might look like. In the artwork, Hugh Jackman can be seen wearing the classic yellow Wolverine costume from the comics while carrying Deadpool in his arms.
Check out the fan artwork in the post below.
While Hugh Jackman has retired from the role of Wolverine, Marvel Studios confirmed plans to include mutants in the MCU during its presentation at San Diego Comic-Con2019. However, the studio is reportedly in no rush to introduce the X-Men to the MCU, meaning it will likely be some time before we learn who will replace Hugh Jackman as Wolverine.
Meanwhile, Ryan Reynolds has confirmed that he is working on a Deadpool sequel with Marvel Studios. However, there has been no official word on where the third Deadpool film might fit into Marvel Studios’ Phase 4 or 5 plans. In the meantime, fans can re-watch Ryan Reynolds’ most recent appearance as the Merc with a Mouth in Deadpool 2.
