However since then Deadpool star Reynolds has been lobbying the Aussie actor for a big return.
And now the biggest hint ever that Wolverine will be returning for the X-Force movie occurred at San Diego Comic Con.
During a panel promoting Deadpool 2: The Super Duper Cut, an extended version of the end credits scene was screened.
Fans will remember Deadpool travel back in time to X-Men Origins: Wolverine to assassination the other version of his character from the not so fondly remember superhero movie.
And all the while Jackman’s Wolverine was looking on – from old footage – but this time another line was added.
According to Movie Web the extended clip saw Deadpool say “I love you” to Wolverine.
And then added: “One day your old pal Wade’s gonna ask you to get back in the saddle again. When he does, say yes.”
If that’s not a teaser that Wolverine will be turning up in the X-Force movie, as he does in the comics, then we don’t know what is.
To add to this Reynolds once again reiterated that he wanted Wolverine to return to team up with Deadpool.
At the panel he told fans: “You never know.”
Speaking with TMZ, Jackman said: “Ship has sailed Ryan. Sorry brother.”
The Wolverine star was also asked on GMA and said: “Ryan…back it up a little.
“Play a little hard to get. It’s too much. It’s not sexy.”
Of course the other option is that another actor will play Wolverine in the X-Force movie, that is unless Jackman is playing it coy.
