After rumors began to circulate on social media that Ryan Reynolds shot a cameo for the newest X-Men series installment, Logan, reprising his Deadpool role, the film’s director James Mangold quickly took Twitter to deny the claim.
The Wrap’s original article and tweet implied that the actor was set to come back on the big screen alongside Hugh Jackman, who will star as Wolverine once again for the final X-Men movie.
Soon after, however, Reynolds personally denied the claim via his personal Twitter account:
Whether the actor’s refute is a hoax or not, Mangold was not pleased with The Wrap’s coverage. After citing the article as “fake news,” he further insulted the news publication, citing them as the show biz equivalent to Breitbart, an alt-right news outlet.
He proceeded to thank his buddy Reynolds for clearing up the rumors with his tweet:
Logan is set to debut March 3, 2017.
