Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds are clearly best friends and part of the way you can tell is that they never stop giving each other a hard time. Now the pair of Jackman and Reynolds have found something new to fight for, as a new ranking of Great Performances in Superhero Movies has put Hugh Jackman just ahead of Ryan Reynolds, and Jackman is rubbing it.
The ranking came from Variety and while Ryan Reynolds’ performance in dead Pool and Hugh Jackman’s performance in Logan were ranked in the top 10 of the Top 50 Superhero Performances of the Last Half-Century, Jackman is ranked seven, while Reynolds is ranked eighth. It’s something Jackman made sure to point out on instagram. But Reynolds decided to respond with love.
All in all, it’s pretty impressive that Reynolds and Jackman gave two of the absolute best performances in superhero movies, and I’m not sure anyone would really dispute their top 10 rankings. Logan and dead Poolwhile certainly very different films in their own right, and two of the best of the genre without a doubt.
As for who deserves a higher placement, it’s probably not too much of a shock that Logan got the green light dead Pool. Drama always tends to be rated higher than comedy, and Logan was not even a mere performance, but the culmination of almost two decades of work. As Jackman pointed out, only one of the films was going to really work in cinematic black and white.
In the end, Deadpool could literally have the last laugh. Dead Pool 3 is in the early stages of pre-production, with the writing team behind the first two, Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese working on the next dead Pool. The film also now has a director, the same man who worked on Ryan Reynolds‘ last two projects, Shawn Levy, is on board to helm the new one. dead Pool as well. Hugh Jackman has been one of Deadpool‘s favorite comedic targets in previous films, and we can bet he will be again. Maybe they’ll just Dead Pool 3 in black and white.
Of course, while Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds love playing with each other, it’s all done by what is clearly genuine affection. Sometimes the two can’t even pretend otherwise. After Reynolds sent Jackman his “I love you” note, Jackman had to respond in kind, and now the two have seemingly started a feud over who loves whom more.
These two are just lovely guys and while I’m not sure who really likes who more, I know there are a lot of fans out there who love to see every aspect of this friendship.
