Within the first few minutes of Deadpool 2, Ryan Reynolds had made it his mission to rub salt in still pretty fresh wounds. If you’ve seen the movie Logan, which was essentially Hugh Jackman’s love letter to fans, you know how it ended. And you know the pain of watching Wolverine, a character that we’ve watched for over a decade; die while his daughter Laura watched. Of course, typical Deadpool; turned our pain into laughter by showing us a musical toy of Wolverine on that spike at the beginning of the movie.
Apparently, Ryan Reynolds did not want to be without this souvenir, admitting that he, in fact, stole it from set.
“I left set that day with the Logan music box,” Reynolds says, “I stole it. I’m just letting you know.”
The musical toy was not the only Logan reference in the film; Ryan Reynolds in his career as Wade Wilson seems to love dropping Hugh Jackman and Wolverine Easter Eggs, but it’s all in good fun.
“Hugh is one of my closest friends, and I would never want to do anything to put him in an awkward position or something that he wouldn’t be proud of,” Reynolds said. “The only thing that was a surprise to him was the Logan music box in the beginning of the movie. That is something I felt like I could take some creative license with. I still feel like I need to give him that music box, because it is rightfully his, not mine.”
