Ryan admitted that he invited some of the other stars too to the reunion. That's because Ryan Reynolds recently crashed a virtual gathering of original X-Men actors, who were celebrating the first movie's 20th anniversary.
Ryan Reynolds just loves messing with Hugh Jackman!

"Oh sorry, I actually thought this was a Game of Thrones reunion", Sophie joked.
In a YouTube video for Global Citizen, Jackman hopped on a call with his former castmates Halle Berry, Patrick Stewart, and Famke Janssen. "I actually have a James Bond reunion Zoom now", Janssen said, to which Berry said, "Oh God me too". "Split reunion", McAvoy said, while Stewart explained, "Star Trek".
Jackman explains to the Canadian that the four castmates were just reminiscing about their time in the three movies together. Poor Hugh. Ryan's never going to leave this man alone. "Guess it's just you and me, Logan". Personally, it would be great to see Reynolds, Jackman, and Schrieber working together again in the future.
"You know what that makes this a reunion for?" asked the Deadpool 2 actor. They were quick to remind him that his movie was the much-maligned X-Men Origins, which is often lampooned for its lackluster depiction of Deadpool.
Jackman's disappointment only grew as Liev Schreiber (Victor Creed/Sabretooth) jumped on the call, super pumped for an Origins reunion.
