Hugh Jackman might make a cameo appearance in “Deadpool.” Ryan Reynolds, who plays the titular role, revealed in an interview to News.com.au that he hopes to see the actor play Wolverine in the film.
“God, I hope so. That would be really nice. I dunno, we’ll see. It seems like he’s open to it, but it’s gonna be more of a scheduling issue than anything else,” said Reynolds.
“Deadpool” is currently in production in Vancouver. Empire magazine (via Comicbook) recently released behind-the-scenes images of the film’s shoot, where Reynolds can be seen dressed as Deadpool. He can be seen wearing a red and blue costume and appears to have two guns in one hand. He also seems to have a cross on his back as he is walking along a road. In another image, the production crew can be seen standing beside a car.
“Deadpool” is based on the Marvel comics antihero who is a mentally unstable mercenary. His alter ego is Wade Wilson and he made his first appearance in “New Mutants” No. 98. He has a peculiar, talkative nature and has the power to regenerate his damaged cells at a rate faster than an ordinary person. He is immune to poisons and drugs and is a master of assassination techniques.
Reynolds previously played Deadpool in the 2009 film “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” and he is happy to reprise the role after six years. “It’s always different in practice than it is in your mind, which by and large, I’ve realized as I’ve gotten older, is a good thing. We’re just diving into it, but it’s such a fun cast and crew, it’s been really lovely so far,” he added.
Tim Miller is directing the film from a screenplay by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick. Lauren Shuler Donner and Simon Kinberg are set to produce the film, which also stars Morena Baccarin, Ed Skrein, Gina Carano and T.J. Miller. It is based on the comic book of the same name by Fabian Nicieza and Rob Liefeld and is scheduled to be released Feb. 12.
