The man under the Deadpool mask and suit, Ryan Reynolds, and Wolverine himself, Hugh Jackman, have decided to end their frequent exchange of insults on social media. Of course, we weren’t expecting it to last, but it ended as fast as it began.
The former co-stars of the humongous failure, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, have been trading hilarious comments about each other on social media for years. Twitter’s seen a great deal of these banters, until Ryan Reynolds announced that his long-standing feud with his mortal enemy has ended and that he’d be making an ad for Jackman’s coffee company, Laughing Man, as “a gesture of goodwill.”
Despite being the funnier one (sorry, Hugh), the joke was on Deadpool, and Jackman was the Laughing Man. Well, sort of.
Reynolds’ ad aired first. To Jackman’s surprise, the wonderfully-made commercial was all-praises for his “Hugh-conic” coffee company, with Ryan even calling it the “superhero of beverages.”
So, when it was finally Hugh’s turn to show his ad, Ryan could only mutter, “wow.”
We didn’t expect Hugh Jackman had the capability to be that mean, but it just adds fuel to fire between the two big actors. Hopefully, this ignites into an actual showdown on the big screen, pitting Wolverine against Deadpool in an action-filled blockbuster that might take more than two hours because of their respective healing abilities.
