The stars were reminiscing about their time doing the franchise together, which started with X-Men in 2000. It was none other than Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds. Hugh Jackman and the cast of the X-Men trilogy recently had a Zoom virtual reunion that got hilariously crashed by Ryan Reynolds.
But Ryan Reynolds, who was in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, joined the call and things took a bit of a turn - much like numerous X-Men films do.

Everyone might be in quarantine right now but that hasn't stopped Ryan Reynolds from trying to reunite with Hugh Jackman. "The cast and I were just reminiscing about the movie that we were all in together", Hugh deadpanned. Poor Hugh. Ryan's never going to leave this man alone.
Before departing, Turner, who realised that she'd gotten the wrong memo, apologised saying that she "actually thought this was a Game of Thrones reunion". Soon, McAvoy claimed he had to attend a "Split" reunion, while Stewart cited "Star Trek". "Guess it's just me and you, Logan". They were quick to remind him that his movie was the much-maligned X-Men Origins, which is often lampooned for its lackluster depiction of Deadpool.
Of course the entire video was choreographed and made for fun but it was created in support of "all the true superheroes fighting for a safer, healthier, more equitable world" and was aired as part of the Global Citizen: Unite For Our Future concert.
Make sure you watch all the way to the end for a hilarious final guest.
