Logan is never, ever, ever gonna appear in a Deadpool movie

While admittedly disappointing, it's not very surprising to hear that Hugh Jackman has no interest in making a cameo in DEADPOOL 2. What with him touting up-and-down that LOGAN will be his last ride as the character, not to mention that the universes (even with their shared tangential relations to the X-Men Cinematic Universe) are so diametrically opposed. It'd be like the Punisher cameoing in BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD - obviously cool, if more than a bit incongruous.

Anyway, don't take my word for it, here's what Hugh Jackman himself said during a Facebook Live event a couple days ago:

No, and Ryan is currently sleeping outside my house. He has a little picket fence going on there...Look, if that movie had appeared 10 years ago, probably a different story, but I knew two and half years ago that this was the last one,” Jackman explained. “The first call I made was to [Logan director James Mangold]. I said, ‘Jim, I’ve got one more shot at this.’ As soon as Jim came up with the idea and we worked on it I was never more excited. But, it feels like the right time. Deadpool, go for it, man. Do your thing. You don’t need me.

There you have it. Guess a magazine cover is the closest we'll get to Jackman appearing in a Deadpool film. Bummer.

Anyway, Hugh Jackman is going to do the Wolverine-thing one last time in LOGAN, which comes out March 3rd, 2017, while Ryan Reynolds has just began production on DEADPOOL 2, which comes out sometime next year.

Extra Tidbit: Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman already starred in a movie together as Logan and Wade Wilson in X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE. It's okay if you purposely forgot that film existed.
