Does Hugh Jackman have a cameo as Wolverine in Deadpool? The actor has shared a video from behind-the-scenes as reshoots continue this week in Vancouver. While it has never been confirmed that the actor is going to appear as Logan in this February's X-Men spinoff, it is known that Deadpool exists within Fox's entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, which consists of various X-Men and Fantastic Four characters. The video doesn't hint at a cameo. Instead, it gives us Ryan Reynolds in his Wade Wilson post-Mutant make-up. And he's doing an impersonation of Australian Hugh Jackman. Here's what the actor had to say.
"Good day, mate. Hugh Jackman here. Just reminding you to get your votes in for People's sexiest man alive. Covers coming up."
While no one connected to either project has confirmed that Hugh Jackman will once again reprise his role as the indestructible mutant Logan in Deadpool, the actor himself has teased that it is more likely than him showing up in any of the other spinoffs or X-Men: Apocalypse. Adding some weight to this is the fact that Deadpool reshoots are happening right now. And it was Hugh Jackman who posted this video on his Twitter.
So, is Hugh Jackman in Vancouver? Or did Ryan Reynolds send the actor this video to post? We're not sure just yet. And we might not know until the film opens in time for Valentine's Day this February. What we do know is that Ryan Reynolds has returned to his hometown to shoot additional scenes for this Marvel adventure from 20th Century Fox. And we know some of those scenes involve a garbage truck and a sharp dressed man getting a head-butt from Wade Wilson himself. Will we see Hugh Jackman set photos later today? Perhaps.
Principle photography wrapped in May on Deadpool. And since that time, we've already gotten our first look at the trailer and quite a few stills. Based upon Marvel Comics' most unconventional anti-hero, Deadpool tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life.
Ryan Reynolds stars as Wade Wilson alongside T.J. Miller as Weasel, Gina Carano as Angel Dust, Brianna Hildebrand as Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Morena Baccarin as Copycat and Ed Skrein as Ajax. Tim Miller is directing the movie from a script by writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. The film will be rated R. This makes Deadpool the perfect Valentine's Day date movie when it hits on February 12, 2016. Don'tcha think?
