Hugh Jackman on Saturday morning had a chance encounter with a fan who had sage advice for Ryan Reynolds concerning Deadpool 3. A New York City police officer stopped the X-Men star so he could give a message to Reynolds.
Jackman taped the talk and shared it with his massive social media audience. “Officer [John] Dobkowski is doling out incredibly smart career advice for @VancityReynolds. Sharing is caring,” Jackman wrote along with the video.
“Hey, Ryan, you’ve got to get this guy in Deadpool 3,” Dobkowski said. “Even if it is for a 10-minute cameo, that would be awesome. That movie would be so cool, so great.”
The video ends with the officer joking he will ticket Reynolds if Jackman does not appear in the film. Jackman and Reynolds are close friends who often give one another a hard time via social media. Fans have been clamoring for Jackman to appear in a Deadpool installment, either as himself or Wolverine.
Deadpool 3 is in the works at Marvel Studios. Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Logelin, known for the animated series Bob’s Burgers, are penning a script for the Reynolds sequel.
Though the crass tone of Deadpool doesn’t match the more safe-for-work Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, Disney’s Bob Iger has stated multiple times that Deadpool could remain R-rated at Disney.
The Deadpool films stand as the top-grossing X-Men films of all time, with the 2016 original earning $783.1 million, and the 2018 sequel bringing in $785.8 million worldwide.
