Deadpool’s Ryan Reynolds Trolls Hugh Jackman Over ‘Logan’ Debut
March 15, 2017
The Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman feud just added another event to its timeline when Reynolds decided to hilariously burn the Aussie actor at one of his premieres.
Their friendship began in 2009 when they worked together on the X-Men Origins: Wolverine movie. But on Monday Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman took Twitter to embark on a hilarious feud between one another.
Jackman is currently travelling the globe to promote his new and final X-Men movie Logan and decided to post a seemingly innocent photo posing with some fans.
“Thanks for an amazing visit Beijing!” Jackman wrote, to which Reynolds decided to counter.
Reynolds, who appears as fan-favorite Deadpool in a short before Logan, just couldn’t resist.
“Pretty sure those are protesters,” Reynolds tweeted.
Jackman of course responded.
“Really…Guy … Really?!” he said.
This isn’t the first time the two have sparred on social media.
In 2015, while filming Deadpool, Reynolds posted a video on Instagram impersonating the Australian actor and asked fans to vote for him for PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive (both men had already been given the honor — Jackman in 2008 and Reynolds in 2010).
“G’day mate, Hugh Jackman here,” Reynolds says in a thick Australian accent. “Just reminding you to get your votes in for PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive. Cover’s coming up.”
The banter between the two Hollywood stars continued after the trailer for Ryan’s new movie Deadpool 2 dropped last weekend, just days before Hugh’s Logan premiere.
The trailer shows the ‘anti-hero’ Deadpool trying to save a man but because it takes him over two minutes to change into his iconic red suit, the man inevitably dies.
Ryan then used this opportunity to take a dig at Hugh’s Australian accent by saying ‘how the other guys do it so quickly, you probably wouldn’t be dead if it was Logan!’ Reynolds says. “What does he got to change into? That guy wears a f—– tank top and a pair of jeans.”
Deadpool 2 will shoot this year, and is planned for a release in 2018 (alongside X-Men spin-off New Mutants). Logan is out now.
