Hugh Jackman says he's 'hesitating' on retiring as Wolverine

Ryan Reynolds thinks Wolverine and Deadpool should team up for a film, but can he convince Jackman to put the claws back on?

Don't hang up those claws yet. Hugh Jackman may not be done playing Wolverine.

On "The Dr. Oz Show" in May 2015, Jackman said that he wouldn't portray the Canadian mutant after this year's upcoming film, which we now know as "Logan."

But wait! It's possible Jackman is wavering about retiring his iconic role.

Ryan Reynolds, who plays Deadpool, told Variety he could envision a Deadpool-Wolverine teamup film, and Jackman seemed interested.

"I'm hesitating," Jackman says in the Variety article, published Tuesday. "Because I could totally see how that's the perfect fit. But the timing may 
be wrong."

Timing, schmiming! Reynolds wants Jackman's fans to exert some pressure on the actor.

"I have no 
idea if I can change (Jackman's) mind," he says in the article. 
"It's the audience: I would exclusively exploit that relationship to get Hugh back for another one."

"Logan" hits theaters March 3. After that, we'll have to see just how persuasive Reynolds -- and those Wolverine fans -- can be.
