A Hugh Jackman cameo in Deadpool 2 could be "really funny", writers say

With LOGAN official putting the kibosh on Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine, there’s no chance of he and Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) gracing the screen together. Sad times. Still, there are scientists working on finding loopholes, and DEADPOOL 2 writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick were just presented with a big one that would be quite easy to pull off. Light the beacons!

While talking with the Hollywood Reporter the interviewer eventually brought the fans’ desire to see a Jackman as Wolverine cameo, before flat-out suggesting Jackman should cameo as himself – an idea the duo surprisingly hadn’t heard before:

Reese:

Oh my gosh, that's one we haven't heard. That's not a bad idea. I like that. Deadpool lives in a world where Hugh Jackman is out there. He's got the People's Sexiest Man Alive cover that he staples to his forehead in the first movie, so maybe he could meet Hugh as Hugh. That would be really funny.

Fans have been dying to see Wolverine and Deadpool team up, and both Jackman and Reynolds have talked about it in the past, with Reynold’s once saying he would totally “exploit” their relationship to make it work. But, Reese and Wernick have also noted that with all the other team-up scenarios they're currently working on between DEADPOOL 2, X-FORCE and DEADPOOL 3, there’s just no room for one with Pool and Wolvey.

However, a straight-forward cameo laced with Deadpool’s brand of humor would make for a perfect little scene between the two that would quench fans’ thirst as well as keep the movie in a logical realm. And, best of all, it’s totally doable.  Anything with Jackman’s Wolverine would require too many implausible strings being pulled, but with a real-life cameo all you need is for Jackman to take a day out of his life. I mean, it’s not like he has anything else going on!

DEADPOOL will begin shooting soon for a 2018 release.

I would love for it to be some form of Hugh Jackman showing up as himself, and Deadpool goes just out of his mind because he's himself and not Wolverine. Or maybe like before the big final fight Deadpool announces he's going to call in some help and Hugh answers his phone and "how many god damn times do I have to tell you, man, I'm not playing Wolverine anymore!" and hangs up on DP.

Even though the ultimate dream would be for Jackman to reprise the role of Wolverine for a Deadpool sequel, I think this would be just as cool and creative.

Simple.

Ext. City St Day

Deadpool walks down the street, doing his breaking the fourth wall, etc. when he passes someone very familiar.

Deadpool: Holy shit, you're Hugh Jackman! You know, you look just like a friend of mine...

Hugh: Fuck off.

End scene.

I've often thought this for The Avengers movies. I know Fox own Wolverine, and so probably own the mutton chops, vest and claws as a trademarked image, but if during a climatic fight scene in the last Avengers movie, let's say some aliens or whatever run into a bar, then seconds later come crashing out of the windows only for Jackman to be standing in the bar with, say a cigar in his mouth, surely we'd all know who that was right?
I know it's a fanwanky, pipe dream type thing, but is it even
