In a chat with Rotten Tomatoes, Hugh Jackman said, “I was on my way – I was just driving – and literally just like a bolt of lightning came this knowing, deep in my gut, that I wanted to do this film with Ryan... for Deadpool and Wolverine to come together. And Jacqueline, I swear to you, when I said I was done I really thought I was done. But, in the back of my head, ever since I saw Deadpool 1, I was like 'Those two characters together...' I knew it: I knew the fans wanted it. Ever since I put on the claws, fans have talked about these two, so that had always been there, but I just knew.”

"I literally could not wait to arrive; as soon as I arrived, I rang Ryan and I said 'Let's do it.' Like, I hadn't rung my agent, no one! I had to ring my agent [after] and say 'Oh, by the way, I've just committed to a movie’,” he added.
