Don’t count on another pair of cynical superheroes meeting again in 2017. Ryan Reynolds and Logan director James Mangold both responded to rumors that Deadpool will make a brief appearance in Logan, the next Wolverine installment. After an unnamed source told the Wrap that Reynolds filmed a post-credits Logan scene directed by Deadpool 2 helmer David Leitch, Reynolds denied making an appearance. The actor tweeted that Deadpool won’t share the screen in Wolverine’s solo mission. Mangold dismissed the report, calling it a piece of fake news. “DEADPOOL IS NOT IN MY FILM,” he tweeted. “Does all caps help confirm it?” The Logan scene would have been the second Deadpool-Wolverine crossover: In X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009), Reynolds had a brief cameo as Deadpool. Logan, which finds Wolverine caring for a young mutant girl and an ill Professor X during a decline in mutant births, will be released March 3, 2017.
