All it takes for Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds to ceasefire their longstanding “feud” is a fundraiser.
Fans of the superhero stars have long known that the two keep a social media rift.
Fortunately, it’s all just for fun and the two are actually the best of friends since working together on 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
And since it seems like they enjoy entertaining their followers online, they don’t really mind busting each other’s chops once in a while.
But on Monday, the two announced that they had to hit pause on their fight to unite for the All-In Challenge. It’s a fundraising campaign started by Michael Rubin.
In this challenge, stars are going to auction experiences to raise funds for the children, elderly and those working on the front-line to stop the spread of COVID-19.
It started with a quick run of title cards that says “Inspired by Wolverine: Originals.” It even credited their wives, Blake Lively and Deb Jackson, who both seem to be in on the fun as well.
It then moved on to Jackman and Reynolds sharing nonsense backstory about the feud. They claimed that their war go way, way back.
They also brought up one of their subjects of their feud before which is their respective beverage companies. Reynolds own a gin company while Jackman owns a coffee company.
The Wolverine actor called gin “for the weak” while the Deadpool actor called coffee for “sleepy people.”
It seemed they were going to start on a fight again but Reynolds assured that they are on a ceasefire and only a pandemic can make that happen.
