"Deadpool & Wolverine" marks the first time the "talkative mercenary" Deadpool joins the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Ryan Reynolds, who plays Deadpool, and Hugh Jackman, who is reteaming with him for the first time since "Wolverine: X-Men Zero" (2009), accidentally agreed to play Wolverine again without checking with his agent. It tells the inside story. In a previous interview, Jackman said that after speaking with Reynolds about the possibility of reprising the role of Wolverine, he drove for about an hour to clear his head, then called Reynolds to accept the role. He revealed.

In an interview with Fandango, Jackman talked about that phone call with Reynolds and said, ``While I was driving, it was like a bolt of lightning struck me and I knew I wanted to do this movie with Ryan.'' Shortly after arriving at their destination, Jackman went on to say that he called Reynolds and told him he was going to do the movie, but that he forgot to check with his agent. “I had to call my agent and say, ``By the way, I've decided to be in a movie.'' Sometimes in life, things are so obvious, but when that moment comes... "I learned that if something happens, you just have to jump in and push through." It seems that he was so excited that he completely forgot about the necessary steps.

Meanwhile, Jackman said of quitting his role as Wolverine in Logan (2017), saying, ``I swear to you, when I said, 'It's over,' I really thought it was over.'' ing. However, he admitted that ever since he watched "Deadpool" (2016), he couldn't get the thought out of his head, "What if Wolverine and Deadpool were together," and confessed that the possibility of them teaming up again had always been on his mind. During those discussions, the two hit it off about working together again, but when Reynolds approached Marvel president Kevin Feige about returning, he was reluctant, and Feige told Jackman, ``Hugh, I'd like to give you some advice. "You can't come back," he said. ``Deadpool & Wolverine'', which seems to have had a lot of behind-the-scenes drama before it was realized, will be released simultaneously in Japan and the US on July 26th.
