REPORT: Deadpool will appear in ‘Logan’

Logan Deadpool

A new story from The Wrap claims Ryan Reynolds recently filmed a new scene for the upcoming film Logan as Deadpool. 20th Century Fox, the studio behind the film, has yet to comment.

According to the story, which was posted around 1:45 PM EST on Wednesday, sources close to production claim Deadpool 2 director David Leitch directed his lead actor for a sequence that will more than likely become a post-credits sequence on the upcoming comic book blockbuster. No details about the scene were made available.

Logan finds Hugh Jackman returning to the role of Wolverine for the final time. The story takes place in 2024 and finds the ever-resilient Logan caring for a sick Professor X during a time when the birth rate for mutants has taken a dramatic, inexplicable decline. Logan and X discover a young mutant and try to care for her as evil forces work to put an end to all mutants. You can view the first, decidedly grim trailer for the film below:

It’s not hard to imagine a world where Deadpool appears to mock the other version of Deadpool, but would it go against the dark tone of the film being teased above? Perhaps more importantly, would audiences care if it did?

Logan arrives March 3.
