While fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have obviously been rejoicing ever since Disney acquired 20th Century Fox — and therefore iconic characters such as the X-Men, Fantastic Four, and Deadpool — there’s a level of sadness in knowing that the beloved Merc with a Mouth never crossed on-screen paths with Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine.
The Deadpool films are certainly not shy about that fact, as both Deadpool and its sequel make constant hilarious references to the adamantium-clawed mutant.
Now, while fans may one day get to see Deadpool interact with a Wolverine in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, odds are that it certainly won’t be Hugh Jackman’s iconic version, as the Australian actor retired from the role following 2017’s Logan.
And just like the fans of the franchise itself, Ryan Reynolds imagines that Deadpool also misses Logan, as he told us at the premiere of Netflix’s new Michael Bay flick 6 Underground that if Deadpool were to get drunk on a bottle of Reynolds’ Aviation Gin, then he’d likely text his beloved Wolvie.
And as for what he’d say? Well, he’d sing “Tomorrow” from Annie’s, of course.
Regardless of whether or not he ever crosses paths with Wolverine, Deadpool is on his way to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as it’s been reported that Disney considers integrating the character into the MCU a “priority”.
Additionally, recent rumors have indicated that the Merc with a Mouth could make his MCU debut in 2021’s Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness. Luckily for fans, at this time, it’s not a matter of if Deadpool joins the rest of the Avengers, but when.
