Logan may have ended with — SPOILER ALERT — Wolverine dying, but that hasn’t stopped Ryan Reynolds from still hoping for a Wolvie/Deadpool team-up film. The fact that Logan took place years in the future from Deadpool 2 also helps. “He’s alive and well in my timeline,” says Reynolds. “There is a Logan running around out there with a little bushy chest and his little sharpy, sharpy claws, and he is alive and well and ready to go. I would love that.”

The pair did appear as their respective characters together in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine, but since audience reaction to that film was lukewarm at best, fans have always held out hope the two would be paired together again.

Reynolds admits the challenge is not so much Logan’s health but Jackman’s interest in revisiting the mutant. Says Reynolds, “I think convincing Hugh of that would be a near-impossible feat, but there’s no human being I love more than Hugh Jackman in that universe, and equally so as a friend. He’s just the best. I already miss him as Logan, so I’m one of those guys that whenever I see him, I’m like, ‘Come on, man. Just one more. Come on. We’ll do it together. It’ll be fun. Come on! On three. Here we go, together. One, two, three, together,’ and it’s always just me saying it.”
