Its almost Christmas now and three of the biggest stars of the Marvel films aren’t scared to get up to some holiday-themed tomfoolery.
Ryan Reynolds recently shared a photo of himself alongside X-Men star Hugh Jackman and Far From Home’s Jake Gyllenhaal, at what appears to be a Christmas party. Reynolds can be seen wearing a tacky Christmas sweater with a confused look on his face, and as per the caption, Gyllenhaal and Jackman had tricked Reynolds into thinking it was a sweater party.

These photos are pretty hilarious, thanks to how tickled Jackman and Gyllenhaal seem to be about the whole scene. The sweater even boasts a personalized Christmas label from Ryan, which is addressed to Gyllenhaal and Jackman.
The trio’s online antics will surely delight fans since it’s currently the closest we’ll get to the three of them sharing the screen. While Fox’s X-Men characters are expected to be blended into the MCU (which Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio is currently a part of) as part of the Disney/Fox merger. Till now, we don’t know what does it exactly means for Reynolds’ Deadpool. Jackman brought his role as Wolverine to a close in last year’s Logan and has since hinted that he wouldn’t return, even for team-up with Deadpool.
“No, but Ryan is relentless,” Jackman explained last month. “He keeps coming back to me in all these ways, shapes and forms. I just said, ‘You know, I just don’t think the world really wants to see Deadpool with Wolverine.’ Maybe a cameo from Deadpool? I just think it runs over it for Deadpool.”
Nevertheless, it seems like a Deadpool/Wolverine crossover wouldn’t happen with Jackman as Wolvie.
“It’s interesting because for the whole 17 years I kept thinking that [Wolverine joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe] would be so great,” Jackman explained late last year. “Like I would love to see, particularly, Iron Man and the Hulk and Wolverine together. And every time I saw an Avengers movie I could just see Wolverine in the middle of all of them like punching them all on the head. But it was like, ‘Oh well, that’s not gonna happen.’ and it was interesting just when I first saw that headline — it was just the possibility of it and who knows what’s gonna happen, obviously — I was like, “Hang on!” But I think, unfortunately, the ship has sailed for me, but for someone else, I would like to see Wolverine in there.”
