Ryan Reynolds: Hugh Jackman Is Open to a Wolverine Cameo in 'Deadpool'
Hugh Jackman recently insisted that the upcoming Wolverine 3 will be his last time playing the iconic character, but according to Ryan Reynolds, that may have been yet another false alarm. The Deadpool star claims that Jackman is "open" to a cameo in the "merc with a mouth" adaptation, as long as his busy schedule permits it.

In a recent interview, News Limited asked if Wolverine would "pop up" in Deadpool, and Reynolds responded, "God I hope so, that would be really nice. I dunno, we'll see. It seems like he's open to it, but it's gonna be more of a scheduling issue than anything else."

Even if Jackman truly meant it when he said that 17 years playing Wolverine is enough, this could still make sense. He made those statements referring to a Wolverine standalone film, which would take up much more time and energy than a fun, probably silly cameo in Deadpool. So it's possible that he is simply retiring his claws when it comes to top-billing roles, rather than giving up on Logan entirely. Plus, Deadpool is scheduled to come out over a year before Wolverine 3, so there might be a loophole in there as well.

Wolverine will next be seen in X-Men: Apocalypse, which comes out on May 27, 2016, and then in Wolverine 3, which will be released on March 3, 2017. The Deadpool movie is slated to be released on February 12, 2016.
