What Ryan Reynolds Is Doing to Convince Hugh Jackman to Join ‘Deadpool 2'

Hugh Jackman hung up his hat as Wolverine after his last “X-Men” film, but while at the New York premiere of “Logan,” he told “Extra’s” AJ Calloway that “Ryan Reynolds is literally outside my front door every morning, 'Hey man, Deadpool 2,' and I’m like, ‘No!' The next morning, 'Hey man…'”

Jackman says he let go of Wolverine – the character he began playing 17 years ago – in the franchise that has banked almost $5 billion at the box office.

Hugh smiled, “It's frightening to think my kids weren’t even born then. It’s literally the last millennium.” As for what it was like when the film wrapped, he commented, “It was emotional. I was kind of ready. It felt right.”

He also gave a health update after his fifth skin cancer scare, saying he is in the clear. “It’s easy to get done and taken out. It’s not life threatening but don’t be like me. Wear sunscreen, get a checkup.”
