Before the train gets completely out of the station, it looks like Deadpool fans who want to see the merc with a mouth appear in Logan are going to be disappointed.
The mercenary himself Ryan Reynolds took to Twitter after being asked about the recent report that Deadpool would be showing up in an after the credits scene for the upcoming James Mangold directed Logan. The reactions were that of complete surprise, as the two didn't really seem to fit together, but then again who's going to argue against seeing more Ryan Reynolds Deadpool.
Sadly, not true. Prisoner 24601 is on a solo mission. https://t.co/5czBmMRfY1— Ryan Reynolds (@VancityReynolds) December 28, 2016
Unfortunately, Reynolds confirmed that the report is not true, saying "Sadly, not true. Prisoner 24601 is on a solo mission." That number, of course, refers to Logan star Hugh Jackman's role in Les Miserables.
Logan takes place in the year 2024, where mutant births have become extremely rare. The defenders of mutant kind, the X-Men, are long gone, and the only remains of them are an old and struggling Charles Xavier and a weary Logan. Logan's vaunted healing factor has slowed, and at times doesn't seem to work at all. When a young mutant needs his help, Logan has to unsheathe his claws once more. His job isn't over yet.
Logan stars Hugh Jackman (Logan), Boyd Holbrook (Donald Pierce), Patrick Stewart (Charles Xavier), Dafne Keen (Laura Kinney/X-23), Doris Morgado (Maria), Stephen Merchant (Caliban), Elizabeth Rodriguez (Gabriela), and Richard E. Grant (Dr. Zander Rice). James Mangold is directing and helped on the screenplay along with Scott Frank and Michael Green.
