REPORT: Ryan Reynolds Will Appear As Deadpool In ‘Logan’ (Updated)

Ryan Reynolds recently expressed interest in seeing Deadpool appear with Wolverine onscreen again someday, but it looks like that dream has become a reality, as TheWrap is reporting that the actor has shot a scene as Deadpool for 2017’s Logan.

According to a source with knowledge of the project, the Deadpool scene will most likely be a post-credit scene, although Fox has declined to comment.

Reynolds’ first turn as Deadpool happened alongside Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine, although it was a much different (read: crappy) version of the character than the one audiences saw in the acclaimed standalone movie earlier this year.

Deadpool 2 director David Leitch, who also co-directed John Wick, is reported to have directed the scene in question.

UPDATE: According to Ryan Reynolds, the above report is untrue:

Logan will be released on March 3, 2017.
