In a recent interview with Big Issue, published on November 19, 2022, Ryan shocked the world when he admitted to writing a screenplay for a Christmas movie starring Deadpool. The movie never made it to the big screens due to Disney's acquisition of 21st Century Fox in 2019. In the actor's words:

"Four years ago, [Deadpool co-writers] Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick and I wrote a Christmas movie starring Deadpool. But it got lost in the shuffle of Disney acquiring Fox and it never got made."

Nevertheless, Ryan made it known that he hoped the full Deadpool Christmas movie would be made someday.

The Return Of Wolverine

Although fans may not see the Deadpool Christmas movie anytime soon, they will be able to enjoy another Deadpool movie in the coming years — Deadpool 3. What's better is that the movie will see the return of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. The latter last appeared as the Wolverine character in 2017's The Wolverine sequel, Logan.

When Hugh and Ryan released a viral video five years later announcing the former's return, it thrilled fans. According to reports, the movie will be hitting the screens in 2024.

Away from the big screen, Ryan and Hugh have a very close relationship. The pair always try to be there for each other, encouraging and lending advice at various times. One such time was revealed in the interview; when Ryan needed help with his role in the musical, Spirited. Considering Hugh also appeared in the musical The Greatest Showman, Ryan turned to him for help.

Hugh Comes To Ryan's Aid 

Ryan noted that when he turned to Hugh for advice, his friend didn't hold back. In his words:

"Hugh and I were having coffee one day and he reminded me of something that is so vital with almost anything that you're doing in the arts. He said, 'Just remember to enjoy it, because if you're enjoying it, we'll enjoy it.'"

Ryan said Hugh's advice turned out to be great as he kept reminding himself to enjoy everything while filming. The movie yielded fantastic results in the end, and Ryan delivered his role perfectly.
