Ryan Reynolds: Deadpool beats Wolverine and ‘Hugh Jackman knows it’

Posted in: Comics,Movies

Deadpool versus Wolverine. (Marvel Comics)

I interviewed Ryan Reynolds not long ago and asked him a classic fanboy question:  “Deadpool versus Wolverine, who wins?”

Deadpool could beat Wolverine any day. I know it, you know it. Hugh Jackman knows it.”

Reynolds worked with Jackman, of course, in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,”  and though it didn’t really go so well for Reynolds on screen — Deadpool, you might recall,  got his head chopped off — that didn’t sour the actor’s view of the movie star in the film’s title role.

“Hugh is a great guy. He’s a very classy human being. He sets the bar for being classy in Hollywood. It’s almost mayoral, his approach to Hollywood. It’s as much his job to sign an autograph or take a photo with a fan as it is to blow people away with his performance on screen. He could host a master class on how to be a movie star. At one point, he was going to be shooting [the new Disney sci-fi film "Real Steel"] in Louisiana while I was doing ‘Green Lantern,’ and we were e-mailing back and forth about having dinner, but they switched to Michigan at the last minute. He’s a tremendous guy and a role model, really.”

Then Reynolds added: “But, seriously, Wolverine is no Deadpool.”
