14 Mar – While he is now in talks to direct the third instalment of the superhero movie, "Deadpool", director Shawn Levy recently stated that he is still very much interested to have Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman doing a project together.
The director, who spoke to ComicBook.com to promote Netflix's "The Adam Project" recently, expressed, "I'm not going to say where or how, but I absolutely will confirm my intention and determination to be the lucky son of a [expletive] who puts those two magnificent gods in the same movie together."
In past interviews, Levy revealed that it was Jackman who introduced him to Reynolds, which enabled him to work with the latter in his last two projects. He even snuck Jackman into last year's "Free Guy" that stars Reynolds in the lead.
As to whether Levy would have Jackman playing Wolverine against Reynolds' Deadpool again in the third instalment of "Deadpool", that may pose some problems, as Jackman did say that he will not be stepping into the Wolverine costume anytime soon after having already said goodbye to the character in "Logan".
"Let's just be clear that, but now, I realised, before we shot Logan, I was like, we got the idea. We knew what it was going to be-ish, right? And I thought this is it. And that really helped me, it really helped knowing I was going into my last season, that it was my last season that I made the most of it. And it's still a character I hold close to my heart. But I know it's done. Tell that to whoever you want to. Please tell it to Ryan [Reynolds]. Because he's like, doesn't believe anything's I'm joking, please," Jackman said, lightheartedly.
