Ryan Reynolds has poked fun at his good friend Hugh Jackman after the Wolverine actor posted a photo about his "amazing visit" to Beijing. In the snap, the star is surrounded by fans, and Ryan was quick to tease the actor about it. Sharing the photo on his own Twitter feed, he wrote: "Pretty sure those are protesters." Hugh clearly saw the funny side of the tweet, and responded: "Really… Guy… Really?!"
The pair, who both play lead roles in the X-Men franchise regularly tease each other. Ryan recently imitated Hugh in his latest outing as the superhero, Deadpool. In a new three-minute clip, the star makes a reference to Hugh's character Wolverine before imitating him in an Australian accent. "Yeah like to get my tank top on, bit of perspiration, have a nice little crime fighting spree yeah," he said in the clip. "Happy hug a koala day."
Ryan has also opened up about how much he'd like to make a tie-in film for both of their characters. He said: "I want Deadpool and Wolverine in a movie together. What we're gonna have to do is convince Hugh. If anything, I'm going to need to do what I can to get my internet friends back on board to help rally another cause down the line. Hugh Jackman is one of the best human beings. Part of the reason I want to do a Deadpool/Wolverine movie is not just because I think the two would light the screen on fire but I genuinely love the guy."

However, Hugh has confirmed that his latest outing as Wolverine in Logan will be his last. He has recently revealed how dedicated he is to the role by giving fans a glimpse at him recording ADR (automated dialogue replacement), and fans joked that they were "exhausted" after watching the impressive clip. One wrote: "I wish I could commit to something as much as Hugh Jackman does. This is amazing," while another added: "How did you not pass out after that one? That looks exhausting."
