Ryan Reynolds And Hugh Jackman Almost Reveal 'Deadpool 3' Spoilers Creative Commons

Hugh Jackman took to Instagram and requested Academy Award voters to leave Ryan Reynolds off the nominations list in the best song category.

In the movie “Spirited,” a retelling of Charles Dickens’ classic, “A Christmas Carol,” Ryan Reynolds and Will Ferrell sang the song “Good Afternoon.” The song reportedly made the shortlist in the original song category for the 95th Academy Awards. However, Hugh Jackman took to Instagram and requested Academy Award voters to leave Ryan Reynolds off the nominations saying that the nomination would make the next year of his life insufferable, CNN reported.

“Ryan Reynolds getting a nomination in the best song category would make the next year of my life insufferable,” Jackman said jokingly in a video that he shared on Twitter. “I have to spend a year with him shooting Wolverine and Deadpool. Trust me, it would be impossible. It would be a problem.”

Jackman began the video by praising Reynolds’ movie.

“I loved ‘Spirited.’ It’s a great movie, the entire family watched it and had a blast. I love Will [Ferrell], I love Octavia [Spencer]… and ‘Good Afternoon,’ I laughed the entire way through. It is absolutely brilliant.”

However, Jackman went on to say, “But please, from the bottom of my heart, do not validate Ryan Reynolds [with an Oscar nomination].”

Jackman said if Reynolds wins, he will gloat and it will become unbearable. Meanwhile, Reynolds, who had been jokingly feuding with Jackman for years, responded with a tweet.

“I think the deepfakes that sang and danced for Will and I would love to perform at the Oscars,” he wrote.

“Also ‘Wolverine and Deadpool,’ bub?” he wrote in a subsequent tweet.

Jackman is currently wrapping up his run on Broadway in “The Music Man.” He will then embark on shooting the third “Deadpool” movie with Ryan Reynolds. It was announced that he would be returning to the role of Wolverine. The film is slated for a 2024 release, Variety reported.

Ryan Reynold's Deadpool character first appeared in 2009’s widely panned “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” which was the first “X-Men” spinoff to focus on Jackman’s character. However, the version of Deadpool in the movie had his mouth sewn shut and did not feature his iconic red-and-black costume. Several years later, Reynolds returned as Deadpool in the proper, R-rated “Deadpool” movie, kicking off a series of the highest-grossing “X-Men” movies.
