Ryan Reynolds may be busy filming The Adam Project for Netflix, but that’s not stopping the star from taking to time to reply to some fans on social media. Of the star’s vast filmography, it’s probably safe to say Reynolds is best known for playing Deadpool. In fact, Deadpool 2 was a trending topic on Twitter yesterday and the actor had a hilarious guess as to why.
Because Deadpool 2 loves you.

Thankfully, Reynolds’ days playing Wade Wilson are not over! The character is expected to be brought into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In fact, it was recently announced that Disney is moving ahead with a Deadpool 3 with new writers, Wendy Molyneaux and Lizzie Molyneaux-Loeglin.
Speaking of Deadpool 3, Reynolds recently claimed that the movie was originally going to be a road trip between Deadpool and Logan. “Before Disney bought Fox, Deadpool 3 was gonna be a road trip between Deadpool and Logan. Rashomon style. For real.” Of course, Reynolds was referencing Rashomon, the 1950 film by Akira Kurosawa that featured the same story from the viewpoints of several different characters. That means this supposed Deadpool 3 idea could have featured the road trip from both Deadpool and Logan’s perspectives.
As much as we want to believe that’s a real idea, we’re inclined to think it was just a joke. Reynolds loves to razz Hugh Jackman, who has made it very clear that his days of playing Wolverine are behind him. That being said, we are always going to hold out hope for a future cameo.
