Ryan Reynolds and Logan Director Deny Rumors of Deadpool Cameo

Deadpool cameo in Logan?

Earlier this week, The Wrap reported that Deadpool was going to have a surprise cameo in next year’s Wolverine solo film Logan. The internet was understandably set on fire with excitement with the thought of the two popular superheroes finally meeting on-screen for the first time, since, you know, X-Men Origins: Wolverine still doesn’t, and will never count. Ever.

The “Merc’ with a Mouth” himself Ryan Reynolds was the first to deny the hot speculation:

Not long after, Logan‘s director James Mangold backed up and thanked the Deadpool actor for his rebuttal:

Mangold seemed a little more than peeved and was quick to throw jabs at the The Wrap’s reporting of the rumor, going as far as calling the outlet’s coverage “fake news”:

It seems that all hopes of Ryan Reynolds showing up in Logan have been squashed, thoroughly. It’s such a shame because Deadpool’s delightful, trollish behavior would clash amazingly with Wolverine’s short-fuse, no-nonsense attitude. It’s a buddy-comedy waiting to happen, except with more slashing! Though, with the somber nature of Logan – can’t say we’ll take it too hard, it makes sense, after all.

All hope isn’t technically lost. Neither Ryan Reynolds nor James Mangold said anything about a post-credit scene. What say you, Deadpool?
