In a new piece of X-men crossover art, we find Wolverine and Deadpool in the same frame. Now, we already know that since the release of Deadpool in 2016, Ryan Reynolds has been pushing to crossover with Jackman’s Wolverine, even if it’s for one single movie.
We also know that Wolverine and Deadpool do have a history in comic books. Also, both the character appeared together in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. However, we all know how that ended! It didn’t do justice at all to Wade Wilson’s character.
But it did start a playful banter between both the actors on social media and fans have been loving it ever since.
Wolverine and Deadpool Together Might not Happen At All
Hugh Jackman has played Wolverine for eight movies. This made him the face of Fox’s X-Men franchise. However, the actor has been adamant that he will not pick his claws again for the role no matter Disney/Marvel’s acquisition of Fox. Logan, 2017’s R-rated movie was the final time Hugh Jackman appeared as Wolverine. It was a beautiful and heart-touching send-off to the character.
This has disappointed fans because Wolverine’s final appearance meant that Deadpool and Wolverine might not come together for any project. Especially when it was plausible to have R-rated movies in the mainstream entertainment.
Wolverine and Deadpool Crossover Art
Digital artist César recently shared a few pieces of art that imagined Wolverine and Deadpool in the same frame. The artist has also shared crossover art for characters such as Harley Quinn and Cruella, Loki and Back to the Future, and more. Check out the images below for X-Men crossover art.
Hugh Jackman has hanged his Wolverine claws for good, yet fans anticipate that Marvel will move further with bringing X-Men and Fantastic Four to the MCU. Ryan Reynolds had already made his MCU debut with Korg for Free Guy promotions. Also, MCU’s multiverse makes it possible for Deadpool to appear in the timeline anywhere.
Also, upcoming movies like Spider-Man: No Way Home are applying the multiverse concept and bringing back some of Sony franchise’s villains such as Jamie Foxx’s Electro and Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock. Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield might also make an appearance.
Similarly, Reynolds sees the potential in the much-demanded Wolverine and Deadpool crossover in the movies. And he has been constantly badgering Jackman for this to happen. If at all Wolverine and Deadpool crossover happens, fans will surely run to the theaters to see it.
