This year will see Hugh Jackman vacate the role as Wolverine after 17 years in the upcoming film, Logan. Before he goes however, fans are hoping that he will team up with Ryan Reynolds’ Merc with a Mouth on the big screen. This is something the pair of actors have enjoyed teasing on social media over the past year. But has their latest team up picture potentially revealed some casting for the highly anticipated Deadpool sequel. Read on to check it out.
The picture, captioned ‘wolverinebonddeadpool’ was posted to Hugh Jackman’s official Twitter account and shows a meeting between Jackman, Reynolds and James Bond actor, Pierce Brosnan. You can check out the tweet with the image of the meeting of cinematic heroes below.

Whilst it’s unclear what actually prompted these actors to meet, could it actually be that Brosnans presence indicates that he could in fact be the actor in line to portray Deadpool’s time travelling cohort, Cable, who was first teased in the post credit scene of Deadpool. While the Goldeneye actor is no Keira Knightley, he definitely has the look and acting chops to portray such a character.
It was previously reported that Bloodline star, Kyle Chandler was being eyed for the role, with this even being the point of contention between Reynolds and director, Tim Miller that caused the latter to leave the project.
There was also a second image from the event which shows the three actors in a much more light hearted manner, reenacting the ‘Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil, See No Evil’ look. Could this be that Brosnan is holding on to a secret. Who knows, but it’s fun to speculate.

We’ll hopefully find out whether this was merely a chance meeting or something bigger when Logan is set to hit theatres March 3rd, 2017.
What do you think? Do you think this is a random encounter? Or could we be looking at the big screen Cable? Let us know below!
