It turns out the Merc with a Mouth will not be making a cameo in the new Wolverine movie, “Logan.”
On Wednesday, TheWrap reported that “Deadpool” star Ryan Reynolds threw on the red tights recently to shoot a scene that was to appear in “Logan” (likely a post-credits scene). The footage was directed by “Deadpool 2” director David Leitch, according to the story. (Leitch’s rep had no comment for this story.)
However, after the story went live Reynolds, “Logan” star Hugh Jackman, and the film’s director James Mangold all tweeted that Deadpool would not be showing up in “Logan.”
Here are their tweets:
Then on Thursday, Reynolds doubled down that Deadpool isn’t in the movie when replying to a tweet from a Hollywood Reporter staffer.
“Logan,” which once again stars Jackman as Wolverine, is certainly much darker in tone than “Deadpool.” Set in the future where the number of mutants is dwindling, an aging Wolverine and Professor X (Patrick Stewart) come across a young girl who has powers similar to Wolverine’s. The movie is extremely violent compared to the other X-Men movies (Business Insider has seen the first 40 minutes of the movie and all we’ll say is it’s definitely getting an R rating).
20th Century Fox, the studio behind both “Deadpool” and “Logan,” declined to comment for this story. However, a source close to the movie told Business Insider that Deadpool does not appear in “Logan.”
“Logan” opens in theaters on March 3, 2017.
