Hugh Jackman Comments On Deadpool’s Wolverine Diss; Would Be Up For A Rematch

Last week, Ryan Reynolds and company put out a viral video from Deadpool featuring him up as the suited character and taking some cracks at things. Included in those cracks was a shot at Wolverine. While speaking with Yahoo Movies at the Sundance Film Festival, actor Hugh Jackman commented on Deadpool’s diss and a few other subjects regarding the character. 

Love it. It’s just brilliant. I mean, I love Ryan, he’s a good mate of mine. He’s so fantastic.

However, when asked if he thinks that Wolverine could take The Merc With The Mouth, Jackman responded “100%” without a moment of hesitation. While the next upcoming Wolverine film is set to be his last, would Jackman be willing to pop the claws and take on Deadpool in the future? I mean, it would technically be a re-match but we’re going to pretend that first one didn’t happen.

I’ve never thought about it till now, but doing something with Ryan – he’s awesome – that’s always attractive to me. But I think you’ve probably got several other people lined up to play [Wolverine]… probably you.

The last part of that was directed at his Eddie The Eagle co-star Taron Egerton who responded that he doesn’t “quite got the facial hair for it” with a chuckle.  If 20th Century Fox was able to convince Jackman to appear in an upcoming Deadpool sequel, I’d be all for it. Definitely an interaction that I’d love to see on screen. What about you? Would you be interested in seeing a Wolverine vs Deadpool “rematch”? Let us know in the comments section below.
