Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman are ready to take their Twitter rivalry to the next level.
In a video shared online Tuesday, Reynolds, who has played Deadpool in the eponymous film series since 2016, shared an update on his upcoming third film – and revealed it will feature a special guest hero.
“We’ve been working really hard on the next ‘Deadpool’ movie for quite a while now,” Reynolds says in the video as he sits on a couch. “I had to really search my soul on this one.”
The video then cuts to various clips of Reynolds appearing deep in thought. He walks among the trees, throws a tennis ball, sits in front of a typewriter, does a bench press, pours a mug full of his Aviation gin, and reads on the toilet.
“His first appearance in (Marvel Cinematic Universe) obviously has to feel special,” Reynolds said in voiceover. “We have to stay true to the character, find the motivation, the depth, the meaning. Every ‘Deadpool’ has to stand out and stand out. It was an incredible challenge that forced me to go deep inside.”
Unfortunately for Reynolds, digging deep is easier said than done.
“And I have nothing,” he said. “It’s completely empty here, and terrifying.”
Well, not totally empty.
“We had an idea,” Reynolds adds, before addressing a man coming up the stairs behind him.
“Hi, Hugh,” he said. “Did you want to play Wolverine one more time?
“Of course, Ryan,” Jackman replies.
Jackman and Reynolds have been playful enemies on Twitter, where they’ve blasted each other over the years about their respective superheroes.
Jackman played Wolverine in the “X-Men” franchise for over 20 years in numerous movies, from 2000’s “X-Men” to 2017’s “Logan.” 2009 “X-Men Origins: Wolverine”.
