Ryan Reynolds’ Puzzling Response to Question About Avengers 5

Are Deadpool and Wolverine going to make it into Avengers 5?

That question appears to be a possibility. Judging by Ryan Reynolds’ response in a recent interview with Variety, one could assume it’s not off the table.

When asked about Deadpool and Wolverine’s inclusion in the MCU, Reynolds responded to whether the two would appear in any Avengers movies.

“I don’t know. Yeah, we’ll see. Yeah,” Reynolds answered.

Meanwhile, director Shawn Levy injected some humor, saying, “Now is where you go to the descriptive part of the article and say, ‘They were shuffling in their seats.’”

Hugh Jackman chimed in, “Clearly, this is our first major interview of this press tour. I’m not sure how to answer.”

Levy added, “We’re going to get a far more packed and evasive answer for all future interviews.”

So, there is a mixed bag of responses filled with sarcasm. But is there a nugget of truth in there from Ryan’s answer?

Screen Rant recently revealed that Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange is confirmed as the first hero for Avengers 5. Beyond that, the new MCU film will reportedly feature over 60 returning characters. This leaves much room for Deadpool and Wolverine to join the lineup.

More is expected to be revealed at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. Will there be a big announcement about Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman making a cameo in Avengers? We’ll soon find out later this month.

Meanwhile, the cast was asked about how the theatrical landscape had changed since the first Deadpool movie.

“Well, come on,” Reynolds replied. “Okay, there was this thing called streaming. No, it’s changed a lot. But people are craving connection. Last year, Barbenheimer were huge event movies that people felt compelled to experience together. You need to have a movie that has a heightened-spectacle element to draw people nowadays, more so than those mid-budget films that packed them in during the early aughts.”

Jackman added, “I agree. This is not my theory, but a guy who runs a studio was telling me that in 2000, people were going to the movies every weekend. He said, ‘Our job was just to tell them…this is a rom-com, this is a horror movie, and they chose off the menu.’ It’s different now; there has to be a reason to go.”

Ryan was also asked how much longer he can see himself playing Deadpool.

“I don’t know,” he said. “I can see any version of it. I can imagine a solo movie, being part of an ensemble. I can imagine that this is also the last time. I never feel anything other than that.”

Get ready for Deadpool and Wolverine, which will hit theaters on July 26. Avengers 5 is expected to be released on May 1, 2026. Whether the duo will appear in it remains unknown, but it sounds possible…
