The buzz over Thanksgiving week has been led by the possibility of a Deadpool/Wolverine team up and throw down. On Friday, The Deadpool co-creator Rob Liefeld added fuel to the fire.

He is totally for the team up and wants Jackman to revive the role one last time, for the fans. He wrote on instagram:

His post was spurred on by Jackman’s recent comments assuming that nobody wants this. He previous stated he doesn’t “think the world really wants to see Deadpool and Wolverine.” It’s clear now that people do want this.

As Liefeld says in his post, “Yes, fans absolutely desire on the deepest possible level of affection and excitement that we can collectively muster to see you return as Wolverine alongside Ryan as Deadpool.”

Liefeld gives a bit of storyline help as well. He thinks they should follow the All Along the Watchtower story from Wolverine #154-155. In those issues, Deadpool takes on a job which consists of going after Logan. Logan had a bounty placed on his head by a corporate cyborg, The Administrator, who hates mutants.

Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine is referenced heavily in both Deadpool films, with good humor. Ryan Reynolds has been open about his hope for the two to unite on screen as well.

The pair works together first in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. This cinematic reunion may be tough to get now that Disney + is on its way and may take all the Marvel properties from Netflix. And it’s clear it will ltake some pulling to get Jackman back on the role. It’s understandable, as Jackman gave a moving and compelling performance in Logan, which concluded Wolverine’s story and ended his life.

As of now, Deadpool will return in Once Upon a Deadpool, which hits theaters December 12th. Hugh Jackman is working on several projects including The Front Runner and The Good Spy.
