Are Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds Hinting Pierce Brosnan Will Star in Deadpool 2?

What is James Bond doing with the likes of Wolverine and Deadpool?

Pierce Brosnan, Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds convened Tuesday morning, though at this point, only the actors know under which circumstances. Jackman and Reynolds, stars of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, each shared a photo on Instagram, leading fans to speculate that Brosnan might be involved in the Deadpool sequel, set for release in 2018. The trio struck a “hear no evil, speak no evil, see no evil” pose, implying they won’t be sharing updates in the near future.

Reynolds captioned his Instagram photo, “Wolvie. Bond. Wade.”

Jackman, who shared a more candid Instagram shot, added, “#wolverinebonddeadpool.”

It’s been confirmed that Cable will appear in the next movie, though his convoluted backstory will be streamlined. And though Deadpool suggested Keira Knightley (“She’s got range—who knows?”), Stephen Lang, Dolph Lundgren and Liam Neeson have all been rumored for the role.

Though it was a surprise success at the box office last year, few expected Deadpool to be an awards season contender. Against all odds, the movie yielded two Golden Globe nominations, and the irreverent flick is up for Best Theatrical Motion Picture at the Producers Guild of America Awards and Best Adapted Screenplay at the Writers Guild of America Awards.

But will Deadpool earn Oscar recognition next week?

“I’ve been out there campaigning,” Jackman told Variety of supporting Reynolds, who spent years developing the movie with director Tim Miller and producers Simon Kinberg and LaurenShuler Donner. “I think he should be nominated for everything. That stuff is not easy, when you know how much of it he wrote himself and created to keep that tone. Hats off to him.”
