Ryan Reynolds Interrupts Original X-Men Cast Reunion During Global Goal: Unite For Our Future Concert

Ryan Reynolds also invited James McAvoy and Sophie Turner to crash the party.

Fake frenemies Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman are at it again.

On Saturday (Sunday, Singapore time), some of the original X-Men cast — Jackman, Halle Berry, Famke Janssen and Patrick Stewart — got back together on Zoom during a segment in the Global Goal: Unite for Our Future benefit concert.

Said Jackman: “Honestly it's kind of surreal you guys, I can’t believe it’s been 20 years since the first X-Men movie.” It wasn’t before long Reynolds dropped in on the gang.

“Ryan, the cast and I were all just reminiscing about the movie that we’re in together,” said Jackman, trying to shoo away Reynolds, who doesn’t appear in the 2000 X-Men movie but stars in 2009’s critically unpopular X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

Not only did Reynolds stay, he also invited Sophie Turner and James McAvoy, both from last year’s critically unpopular X-Men: Dark Phoenix, to join the reunion. “So many stars, so many timelines,” Reynolds quipped. “It’s a recap of Knots Landing.” (That’s a ’80s soap opera, by the way.)

Then the reunion started to go sideways, with each actor going off to attend other reunions. “Oh sorry, I actually thought this was a Game of Thrones reunion,” Turner said. “Bye!”. Janssen said, “I actually have a James Bond reunion Zoom now.” Berry said, “Oh God, me too.” McAvoy said, “Split reunion.” And Patrick had to rush to a Star Trek reunion.

“Just you and Logan, you know what that makes this a reunion for,” Reynolds said to Jackman. That’s when Liev Schreiber (aka Sabretooth) showed up for a brief moment, “X-Men Origins reunite!”

How long can Reynolds and Jackman play up this faux feud? Hey, Disney, just give them the Deadpool/Wolverine spin-off they deserve already.

Though the reunion was playful, Jackman ended the segment with a heartfelt message to those who are fighting on the frontlines of both the COVID-19 pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement.

“Sometime in the not too distant future the hard work of every global citizen will bring about a healthier, safer, more equitable world,” he said. “To all the first responders, essential workers and those fighting for racial justice: I stand in awe of your efforts this year and I stand with you.”
